Misty May-Treanor Dancing with the Beach Girlz

Misty May-Treanor shows off her dance moves with the Beach Girlz and Casey Jennings can’t help but join in along with her. This makes for an interesting preview of what Misty dancing with Maks on Dancing with the Stars will be like. Ok, probably not, but can you imagine if she makes it to the finals and does a freestyle?

This is a nice little video clip of Misty May and Maks on ET (amidst the Kim Kardashian video). The best part is that I think this video debunks the myth that Misty May-Treanor has had formal dance training. All she’s doing is freestyle stuff and may have learned one or two moves from the Beach Girlz. When you see the above dance video, there shouldn’t be any question about whether Misty May has had any dance training.

Misty May-Treanor on Ellen and David Letterman

Looks like between the Olympic win and Misty May-Treanor heading to Dancing with the Stars, she’s been making the TV circuit. Luckily, she hit two of my favorite talk shows: Ellen and David Letterman (is his considered a talk show).

Here’s the video of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh on Ellen:

My favorite part is where Ellen slaps Kerri Walsh on the butt during the game. The sad part is that 2 people who know nothing about volleyball got to play with Misty and Kerri. I would have loved to play with them. I was a little surprised that Ellen didn’t have Misty dance around with her in preparation for Dancing with the Stars.

Here’s the video of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh on David Letterman:

The best part is when Kerri says that David Letterman has a big head.

Misty May-Treanor Dancing on the AVP Tour and on the Great Wall of China

Misty May-Treanor has been on the list of ever Dancing with the Stars cast spoiler I’ve seen. I must admit that I think having Misty May-Treanor on Dancing with the Stars is an incredible idea. It would be absolutely entertaining and she’d be great television.

Don’t believe me? Check out these videos of Misty May-Treanor dancing.

Here’s a nice collage video of Misty May-Treanor dancing on the AVP tour. Turns out she dances before every match.

If you didn’t like Misty’s freestyle, then Misty May-Treanor also danced with the Beach Girlz (basically a bunch of hot girl dancers on the AVP tour). Definitely respectable.

Also, if you watched the Olympics, then you probably saw the piece done on Misty May-Treanor where she’s dancing on the steps of the Great Wall of China. I can’t find that clip anywhere yet, but you can see what kind of a ham Misty May-Treanor is by just watching this video of her before and after she dances on the Great Wall of China:

I think this means Misty May-Treanor will make for some really great Dancing with the Stars television.

Dancing with the Stars Exclusive Cast Incorrectly Revealed

Gossip Sauce posted a list of Dancing with the Stars cast members on August 21st. This prompted at least 5 other sites to use the Gossip Sauce list of Dancing with the Stars contestants for their own website. Here’s the list provided by Gossip Sauce.
Kim Kardashian
Lance Bass
Toni Braxton
Brooke Burke
Maurice Greene
Cody Linley
Susan Lucci
Warren Sapp
Misty May-Treanor
Ted McGinley
Mark McGrath
Cloris Leachman
Jeff Ross

There’s only one major problem with this list of Dancing with the Stars Contestants. I know for sure that one of these people on the list isn’t going to be here this year. They were going to be on the show, but something happened and that’s changed.

My guess is that a number of people on this list are going to be on the show, but my sources are telling me that it’s definitely not an entirely accurate list.

Of course, guessing who is on the list is great fodder for discussion. So, here’s some of the other rumors I’ve seen floating around the internet.

There’s been a number of rumors about George Lopez being on the show. My guess is that George Lopez would be a horrible dancer, but entertaining regardless of his dance skills.

This site called Reality TV Spoilers posted their Dancing with the Stars spoilers.

N*SYNC member Lance Bass, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” Kim Kardashian, singer Toni Braxton, rodeo star and Jewel’s husband Ty Murray, “The Brady Bunch” mom Florence Henderson and original Batman Adam West who, at 79, would be the oldest participant ever. Former Miami Dolphin Dan Marino was approached, but he declined.

Warren Sapp has also been listed as a potential contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Can you imagine big bad Warren Sapp doing a quickstep? At least he could lift any of the girls, but he might also snap them in half on accident.

Misty May-Treanor and Ted Mcginley were also offered on Twitter as possible Dancing with the Stars cast members. I bet those twitters came from the original Dancing with the Stars spoiler at the top.

The good part about all this is that we’re going to find out who it really is tomorrow.
