PureDWTS Season 21 – Rumor Round-Up

As we’re on the eve of the announcement of the first season 21 celeb in less than 12 hours, I figured it was time to come up with a summary post of all the rumors we’ve covered so far this season.

As usual, here’s my explanation: I’ve divided our potential dancers this season into 5 categories: the “legitimate possibilities”, which are rumors that have surfaced within the last week or so (when most casting leaks occur) and come from sources that are generally pretty reliable when it comes to casting leaks; the “long shots”, which are rumors from less-reliable sources, vague tweets, and ambiguous responses from the celebs themselves – basically, rumors that we aren’t really as confident about; the “wannabes/campaigners”, who are celebs who have expressed interest in doing the show (but haven’t actually been reported as a rumor by any reputable outlets); “pure randomness”, which is for random and slightly interesting observations that may or may not indicate a certain celeb’s possible participation in this season – generally, they mean nothing, but we’re adding them here for sh*ts & giggles :-)  And then there are the “no’s”, the celebs that have confirmed that they won’t be participating in this season. I’ve added short notes in wherever I’ve found it pertinent.

 

Legitimate possibilities:

Shay Mitchell
Nick Carter
Kacy Catanzaro
Kaitlyn Bristowe

I’m a just leave this here. ~Heidi


 

Longshots:

Bethany Hamilton
Anthony Davis (said he turned it down – but acted rather wishy-washy about it)
Nick Jonas
Lindsay Lohan
Scott Disick
Pippa Middleton
Marilu Henner
Kobe Bryant or Vanessa Bryant

 

Wannabes/Campaigners:

Christine Ouzounian
Andy Grammar
Ramona Singer
Terrell Owens

 

Pure Randomness:

Alison Baver
Boris Kodjoe (was originally supposed to be on season 18, but backed out)
Ricky Martin
Maureen McCormick
Chris Colfer
Christie Brinkley
Nick Lachey
Heather Locklear
Nina Dobrev
Drita D’Avanzo (draw your own conclusions – but it’s interesting)

 

The Definite No’s:

Rick Schroeder
Jodie Sweetin (personally told me “not this season”, but an interesting person liked my picture of her on Instagram)
Piers Morgan
Caitlyn Jenner
Amanda Bynes

Don’t forget to keep an eye on this post to see the names announced each morning this week on GMA! (NOTE: post won’t be active until tomorrow morning)

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

DWTS Season 21 Rumors And Watchout: Lindsay Lohan, Nick Jonas, Shay Mitchell???

Sometimes “coincidences” can’t be ignored. Know what we mean? Bear with us as we explain…

Apparently, a PR person for Dancing With The Stars is following Lindsay Lohan. This might mean nothing, but, as many Dancing With The Stars die hard fans know, Lindsay Lohan has been rumored to dance in several seasons and even turned down a very lucrative offer one time according to TMZ. Even more interesting is that this PR person also recently followed Nick Jonas who has performed on Dancing With The Stars in the past, but, is it possible he could be dancing too?

DWTS Rumors1

This PR person is also following Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe who has been rumored to dance this season….

DWTS Rumors2

Are you still following? I hope so because guess what? Nick Jonas has very recently followed SHAY MITCHELL who is another celebrity rumor this season….

DWTS Rumors3

So many coincidences!! Let us know what you think? Here is Miss Heidi and Court with their thoughts…

Heidi: The only one I see as potentially unlikely (how’s that for some odd grammar?) is Nick Jonas. Isn’t he the Jonas that is actually making some headway in a solo career?? Then again…we’ve heard casting make comments indicating that they can’t believe they got certain people. Also have to keep in mind that it seems unlikely that Nick and Shay would know the other is going to be on DWTS. It’s a bit too far out for that. Anyway, the reason I am pointing these things out is so that no one gets too carried away…but I told Vogue to write up a post because there are a few too many coincidences here. Perhaps Nick joined the show and read rumors about Shay…or there is just some young Hollywood connection going on there. It’s all very curious, for sure.

Courtney: Verrrry interesting indeed – and if I recall, it was about 5 years ago that a certain other casting/PR person at ABC followed the entire cast of season 11, about 2 weeks PRIOR to the casting announcement. So it may not be totally off-base.  Shay seems like low-hanging fruit – in other words, really wants to do the show, hooked in with both Brandt and Janel, and basically a “gimme” for DWTS casting.  Perhaps La Lohan has finally either a) gotten to a peaceful place in her life, b) is broke and needs the money, or c) both – it’s not at all unusual for a cast member to be rumored for YEARS before they actually turn up on the show.  As for Nick – kinda on the fence about this one, but his brother did do Celebrity Apprentice last season, so perhaps that took away any potential stigma…he also recently broke up with his girlfriend of two years, so maybe he has a bit of extra time on his hands? :-) But if I recall, he is on a show on another network…maybe he’s another Amber Riley-type situation? I’m kinda excited if they really did manage to cast him – dude has…matured well.  And makes me feel like a bit of a dirty ol’ lady 😉

Tyler Perry And Mary J. Blige Confirmed To Dance On Season 13 of Dancing With The Stars? Yeah Right!

Ok, take this one with a huge grain of salt!!! A site called Courtney Luv is reporting movie director and actor Tyler Perry and R & B singer, Mary J. Blige “confirmed” to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 13. I kind of think this is a huge bull and one with maybe the biggest horns yet. I’ll let you decide.

Tyler Perry who is best know for his role as Madea in his latest film “Madea’s Big Happy Family”, will be a contestant on season 13 of Dancing With The Stars. Another big name to join the A list actor is none other than the Hip/Hop and R&B diva Mary J. Blige. Remember where you saw it first Courtneyluv.com

If true, wow, I’m game!!! I love Mary J. Blige and her story would be inspirational on the show for many fans. I can see Cheryl dancing with Tyler and Mary with Tony. What do you think?

Heidi: I call bull on this one. Some website trying to make a name for itself by starting some rumors. I don’t think either MJB or Tyler need DWTS. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. Also in the realm of possible bullsh@t rumors: Nick Jonas. Now, a bunch of his fan twitter accounts are reporting this one – but I have to file it under the “hopeful young girls” category. :-) In case you’re wondering how I decide if I think it’s bull or not – well, some people are too current, too famous (and therefore to BUSY) to do DWTS.

Heidi’s NOTE #2 – I just saw another blog that credits the Tyler Perry and Mary J info to an Atlanta Radio station. Honestly don’t know if this makes it more credible or if they just watch Twitter like I do and reported it from what Vogue and I saw. Ahhh…the social media age. :)
