DWTS Season 17: Rumor Video And Snooki, Jack Osbourne, Christina Milian To Dance?

Radar Online via Star Magazine is reporting Snooki, Jack Osbourne, and Christina Milian as “likely” contestants to be dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Keep in mind while reading this that this source hasn’t always been reliable in the past. Also note that both Snooki and Christina Milian have been rumored to dance in seasons past.

Jack is “excited for the journey,” an insider tells the magazine. “He’s been through a rough time with his multiple sclerosis diagnosis, and is anxious to prove that nothing can stop him.”

And Christina “just couldn’t say no — it’s such a big opportunity for her,” the source says of The Voice‘s social media correspondent.

“She’s concerned about juggling both shows, but she’s a tough girl and will work it out.”

Meanwhile, new mom Snooki has been vocal about wanting to be on Dancing With The Stars, revealing last March, “I feel like I’m a good dancer. I’ve got this new body. I would do it in a heartbeat!”

What do you think if true? I say YES to Jack and Christina, but, please NO to Snooki! More at Radar Online and thanks to @DWTSgossip for find.

Also, Dee @upclose22 found this little Hollywood Scoop segment on the circulating rumors we’ve heard before. Like many of you, I can’t get use to the idea of Farrah and Tan Mom dancing. HELP!! cryingsmilie lol Thanks Dee!

DWTS 17 Rumors: Farrah Abraham, Patricia Krentcil, Bella Thorne, Seth MacFarlane, WWE Superstar to Dance?

Hollywood Life is kicking around a few more names for the rumor mill for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. Some of them, we’ve reported already: John Stamos, Paula Deen, and Jason Varitek. However, take a look at the other new names to add: Farrah Abraham (who?), Patricia Krentcil (who?), Bella Thorne (again who?), a WWE superstar(who could this be? In the past we’ve seen Shelley Martinez, Maria Kanellis, and the Real Melina rumored or campaigning to dance …not that this means anything?) and Seth MacFarlane(ok, so this might be a good one!).

So far, they are awaiting confirmations from John Stamos, former baseball player Jason Varitek, Paula Deen, Backdoor Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil, a WWE Superstar, Bella Thorne and Seth MacFarlane! They are hoping for confirmations soon, but it’s coming down to the last minute. None of these people are definites, but they have been asked and it’s in their hands,” a source close to production tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

Seeing Uncle Jesse shake his hips on the dance floor, sans shirt, would certainly help us feel a little bit better about Sean’s absence from the dancing competition series. And we have a feeling that Farrah knows a thing or two about doing the tango on camera.

You can read the full article at Hollywood Life. Note that this site isn’t reputable of being correct on their rumors, but, it can go either way. Remember this post from last season? As Heidi likes to say, “you be the judge”.

DWTS Season 17 Rumor: Things That Make You Go “Hmmmm”: Martha Stewart And Jesse Ventura?

Ok, so this is most likely absolutely NOTHING! But, Heidi and I are giggling over this possibility and hey, it was a tweet much like this for how Heidi started wondering about Hines Ward and if he was dancing on Dancing With The Stars…and the rest is history.

What are we talking about? LOL! Well, today an author named Theodore Carl Soderberg tweeted this tweet naming Martha Stewart and Jesse Ventura as possible contenders for Dancing With The Stars.

MarthStewartJesseVentura

Again, this is probably nothing. There isn’t anything out there to support it for what we can find so far except that Martha was seen sitting in the audience at Dancing With The Stars in 2010. At the time, she tweeted that it was for a taping and not that she was dancing. Also note that Martha has been a big supporter of dancing and dance segments on her show.

As for Jesse, we can’t find anything out there except that he talked of Martha most recently in an interview about Whistle Blowers.

So yeah, all of this is most likely nothing and yet, the thought of Martha and Jesse possibly dancing is interesting and hey, you never know, right? Also, it fits the “controversial” rumors we’ve been receiving lately.

Heidi, what do you think? LOL!!

Heidi: Hilarious. As Vogue said, we’re thinking the dude is joking and that it’s nothing….but we’ve seen random, one off tweets turn into reality before.  Still kicking myself over the Hines Ward thing. So, because of that and a couple other incidences, we kinda made a vow that we’d post stuff that seemed odd and even unlikely.  But hey, you never know – both would in the vein of what the producer appear to be looking for, if Paula Deen and Geraldo both turning them down recently is true.   Would I like to see either or both?? Sure, why not? Martha is so prissy and proper it would be interesting. And which Jesse would show up?? The Gov or the wrestler??  Heh.

Vogue: LOL! I’d love if the two danced too!! Maybe put Martha with Tony and Jesse with Cheryl?

Paula Deen Declined An Offer From Dancing With The Stars

Well, it appears Paula Deen has said “No” to an offer to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 17! Below is more from US Weekly….

Paula Deen is passing on the paso doble. In the Aug. 19 issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday), a Dancing With the Stars source says the former Food Network star, 66, turned down an offer to compete on the ABC smash.

“The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her,” explains a Deen source. (The Paula’s Best Dishes host was dropped by the Food Network in June after she admitted to once using the N-word during a videotaped deposition. The Southern star has also lost multiple endorsement deals.)

Dancing With the Stars co-host Tom Bergeron, for one, would love for Deen to reconsider. “We’ve seen career resurgences after the show,” he tells Us. “People go, ‘I remember why I love that person!'”

DWTS Season 17 Rumor: Paula Deen Approached To Do Dancing With The Stars?

I can’t get the video to play at VH1, but, they are reporting that Paula Deen has been approached by Dancing With The Stars to dance. As you might know, the celebrity cook has been in the news lately from some racism allegations which she says are untrue. Below is a quote from VH1. Note that Paula was also rumored to dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 14.

Looks like Paula Deen is serving one dish that The Gossip Table doesn’t want to eat. And anyone else for that matter. Rob Shuter reports that the former Food Network star has been dropped Walmart and several other sponsors. However, she may seek redemption through reality TV. Rumor has it that she’s been approached to be on Dancing With The Stars.

If true, what do you think? Would you want Paula to dance…and especially with all the controversy surrounding her right now?? I’m not sure? I think she should take care of her legal issues first atleast.

DWTS Season 14 – Rumor Round Up!!

You’ll notice that ProWatch is no longer in this spot – it had it’s day and I’m afraid we’re going to get nothing more until Tuesday. If you still want to visit it, you can here —> ProWatch.

Every season around this time we create a listing of people who have been rumored to be on the show for this season…and sometimes past seasons, if we see “suspicious” behavior. Things that make you go “hmmmm…” Well, thanks to Vogue, who keeps a list, here we are again.  Seriously – thank Vogue because I don’t have the time to hunt them all down, sadly. Wish I did.

Anyway, I tend to rank, categorize and editorialize as I go, so bear with me. :-)

ETA an update to Troy Aikmen. See below.

ETA #2 – Sasha Cohen is officially NOT dancing this season; she confirmed on twitter even though we had pretty much figured that one out. :-)

The Most Solid Season 14 Rumors

Jack Wagner, Melissa Gilbert and Sheri Shepherd – when TMZ first reported on this one, I was skeptical.  TMZ has a bit of a spotty record, although some have forgotten. A couple of seasons ago, they got the whole cast exactly right, but last season I tend to think they got played.  They got exactly nobody right…they claimed Nancy Grace, but AFTER others (including us) had reported it.  But, Gossip Cop backed them up this time, so I have to give it more weight. Of all the sites out there, Gossip Cop not only confirms some rumors, but puts the kibosh on others – some that I knew to be false.  They are more reliable, IMO. So…I have to say that I think this is the real deal. Melissa and Sherri are also past seasons rumored contestants – and we know that happens quite a bit. As for Jack, well, ABC Soaps in Depth said they heard a former GH star was dancing, hand Jack was let go from The Bold and the Beautiful (a CBS soap), so that kinda opens a window for him, eh??  As for the video of Melissa going into the DWTS studios…well, that doesn’t look like the normal entrance, but the building structure seems the same.  If so…well, doesn’t that eliminate her as Maks’ or Derek’s partner? Unless Derek was fibbing about when he starts rehearsing (next week, per Derek on Ryan’s show).

Maria Menudos – This one isn’t quite as solid as the others, and so far TMZ has no back up.  But I sure would like this one to be true.  Maria herself is giving nothing away. She’s following no pros, she’s making no teasing comments (that I’ve seen, anyway).   If I had a vote I would vote yes. :-)

 

The Not as Solid, but Still Kinda Solid Season 14 Rumors

Annika Sorenstam – Pro Golfer rumors coming from all sides, including golf aficionados, Tony Dovolani and Annika herself.  This one seems plausible, but not as plausible as others. She said she would like to do it, some on twitter are claiming she said yes (although those tweets read kinda weird to me).

Vince Young - Vince straight up said that he had been asked to be on DWTS. Couldn’t tell if he was joking, but the fact that he deleted the tweet was kinda telling.  Of course, being asked doesn’t mean he said yes.

 

Not Solid At All, but Not Speculation Either

Dolly Parton and Gavin Degraw – Both of these rumors came from Hollywood Life who, unfortunately, did not have a good track record last season.  And we haven’t heard much about it since the original posting. Not to mention that Dolly, when previously asked, said “hell no”.  At first I considered Gavin a more real possibility, but now I’m not so sure. UPDATE: He tweeted earlier today that he’s on his way to LA. Hmmm….

Aferdita Dreshaj – Miss Kosovo said not long ago that she was dancing on DWTS – but was she talking about the Kosovo version of the show? Probably – which is why I stuck her in this category.

Bruce Jenner – Bruce I could handle, but I gotta say no to any other Kardashian relatives. :-)  This comes from Hollywood Life once again.

Paula Deene – Hollywood Life was throwing a bunch of stuff at the DWTS wall and waiting to see what would stick. Paula was one of their rumored dancers. I will be curious to see if they get any right.

Bar Refaeli – She was rumored as in negotiation, but it was by a website that I had never heard of before. Not really sure what to make of it, actually, but why would she do it?

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Fun Good Morning America Segment With DWTS Co-Host Brooke Burke!! (Video)

Dancing With The Stars’ co-host Brooke Burke was a guest on Good Morning America today to promote her two new fitness DVDS: “Transform Your Body with Brooke Burke – Strengthen & Condition” and “Transform Your Body with Brooke Burke – Tone & Tighten” . Cameron Mathison visits with her and decides to see if she “practices what she preaches” with her work out routines. Was he able to keep up with her? No. :D They also discuss the next season of Dancing With The Stars. Everyone keeps asking her on the cast, but, her and Tom don’t know anything yet. They call Tom just to make sure he’s not holding out. LOL! Brooke mentions the rumors she’s heard like Paula Deen, Pee Wee Herman, and Richard Simmons. At the end, they run into legendary actor Dick Van Dyke. They ask if he’d like to do some work out moves with Brooke and he says he’s too over the hill. Too cute and a must see!

Rumor Will Paula Deen Dance On Dancing With The Stars Season 14?

So, who knows how true this rumor is, but, Hollywood Life has an “inside source” that says the producers of Dancing With The Stars have asked professional chef Paula Deen to dance. Interesting note: Paula was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. You can read more below and at the link on Paula.

An insider at the hit ABC show tells HollywoodLife.com producers are seriously considering the 64-year-old cook and host for season 14.

“‘DWTS’ suits love good stories,” our source says. “It’s good timing. Paula just confirmed she has diabetes and this could help her a lot.”

As far as Paula’s age, the higher ups aren’t concerned. ”Producers love Paula’s likability and think it would guarantee she’d be around for a couple weeks, regardless,” the insider explains.

What’s more, Louis Van Amstel must have heard this news. Last night, he told Showbiz Tonight he wants to dance with Paula. Below is a take from USA Today

Last night on HLN’s Showbiz Tonight, Dancing With the Stars pro Louis Van Amstel said, “I have a good idea, activity is the best thing. If Paula Deen goes on Dancing with the Stars, I would love to have her as my partner and she is going to become an inspiration! How about it?!”

Adding: Here’s Louis on Showbiz Tonight…

So, what do you think if this rumor comes true? I think she looks fun and it would be cool to hear her being an advocate of Diabetes on the show! I wish more people would speak up on Diabetes! I can also see her dancing with Louis too…or Tony?

Heidi’s Note: Once again I feel compelled to point out the track record of certain websites last season – up and down. Geez –  we like hits too, but you don’t see us jumping on every single person in the news and say “insiders tell us that….”.  Seriously, this is starting to look like sites grasping onto every single person to make the news – Tim Tebow, Paula…the list is getting very long. I’m tempted to go back to our posts before the last two seasons and examine just how true alot of this stuff turned out to be.  Hey…that’s an idea!!

OF COURSE, Louis is all for it since he would love to be back on the show. That’s a no brainer and really lends no credence or weight to the story at all.

Maybe Paula will dance, maybe she won’t….but I bet the “wish list” the producers have is ten miles long and half of  Hollywood is on it.  I would like something solid that doesn’t just scream convenience.
