DWTS Season 19 Watch Out: Courtney Robertson To Dance?

Courtney Robertson has a new book coming out soon that mentions she was once considering doing Dancing With The Stars when she was engaged to Ben Flajnik. However, she turned the show down since Ben didn’t approve. Below is more from Reality TV World. Kind of makes one wonder on whether she’d still do Dancing With The Stars now since they eventually broke up? Thoughts? Look for Heidi’s thoughts after you read this quote….

I had a secret meeting with the producers of Dancing with the Stars and they wanted me as an alternate, just in case anyone got hurt. The payday was incredible: $125,000 just to show up and $30,000 for every week I made it through. Cha-ching!” Robertson wrote in her upcoming memoir, I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends — Confessions of a Reality Show Villain Courtney Robertson.

“‘They offered it to you?’ he asked incredulously. I noted a tinge of jealousy. I hadn’t even thought about this kind of stuff yet and how it would affect our relationship. I was just excited the opportunity was there.”

“‘If you do it,’ he added coldly, ‘you won’t have a fiance.’”

“I felt like I’d been punched in the gut,” Robertson wrote in an advance copy of the memoir obtained by Reality TV World.

“I can’t believe you’d even bring it up,’ Ben growled, even more pissed off.”

“This was not a good start,” the former bachelorette continued.

“I dropped the conversation and ultimately dropped out of the potential Dancing with the Stars casting, even though we could have bought our first house together with that money. Instead we spent the first three months of our public engagement staying in his frat house of an apartment when I’d visit.”

Heidi: I believe she probably was considered as an alternate at the time – she was a rather controversial “winner” of the Bachelor and got a lot of people talking. But the Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants have a VERY short shelf life and I doubt very much that she would make the cut today – unless her book is a huge best seller. I read a review of it on RealitySteve.com and it sounded kinda interesting, if only to see what kind of crap goes on behind the scenes on that show. Anyway, since she was considered back then only as an alternate, I doubt she would make it even that far today.

DWTS Season 19 Watchout: Will Sara Evans Return To Dancing With The Stars?

Thanks to Nathan’s find via Codebear, we have our first casting rumor for Dancing With The Stars Season 19. It appears Sara Evans wants to give the show a go for a second time being she had to drop out the first time. She talks all about it on The View.

So, what do you think? Sara for Dancing With The Stars again? I wasn’t that wild about her the first time, so, I don’t know. :-?

DWTS18 Watchout: The Bachelor’s Juan Pablo Not Asked To Do Dancing With The Stars

Remember when we previously reported for how Juan Pablo Galavis might dance? Well, according to Whio.com via Reality Steve it’s a no go. He hasn’t been asked …yet anyway….

Reality Steve revealed in his weekly video blog chat thing that Juan Pablo will not be on Dancing With the Stars next season, despite his declaration to Mario Lopez the week of his premiere, “I like dancing a lot.” With such a strong expression of emotions, we’re surprised ABC didn’t scoop him right up then and there to shake his bon-bon (Ricky Martin!) on TV. Except that we’re not at all surprised. See, his homophobic comments, saying that it wouldn’t be good for children to watch a gay Bachelor because they are “more pervert,” happened.

And according to Reality Steve, that was enough not only for the network to ask Juan Pablo not to attend Sean and Catherine’s wedding, but also to nix him from consideration for DWTS.

You can read the full article at Whio.com via Reality Steve.

I can’t say I am disappointed in this news. How about you?

DWTS18 Rumor (Again): Kelly Brook To Dance In Next Season Of Dancing With The Stars?

We’ve seen this rumor before in November and now we’re seeing it again. Below is more from the Daily Mail and the Mirror today about Kelly Brook meeting with the producers of Dancing With The Stars to dance next season. Keep in mind the Daily Mail and the Mirror have been known to make up their own stories and sensationalize while you read this. I really do hope this is true though. She’d be great and it doesn’t bother me that she danced before on Strictly Come Dancing. Let us know what you think….

Kelly Brook’s dream of international fame may well be realized following a successful meeting with producers of Dancing With The Stars.

The 34-year-old model and actress is said to be primed for an appearance on the long-running celebrity talent show after impressing bosses during a recent trip to Los Angeles.

It’s understood that Kelly was giving a glowing recommendation from Dancing With The Stars regular Derek Hough – the former boyfriend of Cheryl Cole – prompting curious producers to offer her an exclusive front-row seat at a recording of the hit show.

A source told The Mirror: ‘They love British stars on the show, and Kelly is exactly what it needs – she’s down to earth, she’s going to look amazing in all those ballroom outfits and she’s not afraid of putting in the work.’

The British star is already familiar with the ballroom floor having participated in British variant Strictly Come Dancing in 2007.

Partnered with Kiwi Brendan Cole – a Latin American dance specialist – Kelly won glowing praise from the judging panel, but her participation in the show abruptly ended in week nine after father Kenneth Parsons lost his battle with cancer.

‘Kelly is gorgeous and has great dancing ability,’ the source added. ‘No celebrity has ever appeared on two versions of the show but they are considering breaking the rules for her.’

MailOnline have contacted Kelly’s representatives for further comment.

Cheryl Burke Wants Khloe Kardashian To Dance On DWTS, Said She Would Win

PureDWTS reader Lois has a way of gathering up our feelings with her Dancing With The Stars poems and this time is no different…..

TWAS THE WEEK AFTER

Twas the week after our favorite dancing show
And all through the house, TVs have no glow

Not even a peep from Tom Bergeron we hear
No pros performing sparkling dances are near

No sequined costumes flowing across the floor
No pitter-patter of dancing feet, oh no, no more

Where is the band, did Harold Wheeler disappear
The music stopped, we have no tones for our ear

The couples have all gone home, it just can’t be
There is no more dancing for our eyes to see

What shall we do until Season 17 comes back
Our DVRs and YouTube will take up the slack

We blow a kiss good-bye to a season of dance
Oh how we wish we had just one other chance

To see the dancers again in all their regal glory
Return soon dancing show to tell another story!

Written By Lois A Troutman, May 27, 2013

WE MISS YOU, WE MOURN YOU, WE SHED A TEAR, OUR LOVE WE SEND!
DANCING WITH THE STARS COME BACK AROUND THE DANCING BEND!

THANKS Lois!!

With that said, on with a new Dancing With The Stars “watch out” and one not to be taken too seriously (let’s hope, lol). Life and Style Magazine is reporting pro dancer Cheryl Burke would like to see Khloe Kardashian dance on Dancing With The Stars. What’s more, and if she did so, she’d win. 8O

Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke had an uphill battle when she was paired with comedian DL Hughley this season, but the two-time mirror ball champion isn’t dwelling on what might have been. Instead, she’s already focused on the next season of the hit show – and which celebs she’d like to see foxtroting their way across the floor. Number one on her wish list? Khloe Kardashian.

“Khloe’s got to do it,” Cheryl says. “I think she would be amazing. I think she would actually win the whole thing. She looks great, and I think she has natural rhythm and I think she would be amazing.”

More at Life and Style Magazine. What do you think if this were to happen?

Simply put, ‘No, please NO’ for me! I could barely handle seeing her on the X Factor last season or in the audience screaming when her brother Rob danced on the show. :o

Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean Has Always Wanted To Dance on Dancing With The Stars

Awww, I love when rumor and wannabe season starts and how about this one from Contact Music via Perez Hilton about Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean (pictured above to the right in the white tank) wanting to dance? I have always loved the Backstreet Boys. I hope this happens.

And he isn’t the only member of the grown-up boyband with his sights set on reality Tv – A.J. MCLean is desperate to show off his dancefloor skills on U.S. show Dancing With the Stars.

Bandmate Howie Dorough explains, “The same year that Nick’s brother (Aaron Carter) did it (Dancing With the Stars) I was approached about doing it, but obviously couldn’t do it because of the fact we were embarking on a new record and touring.

“I know A.J. has always said he’s wanted to do it, for sure. He has almost begged to be on the show.”

By the way and just a note not to send us every wannabe who wants to dance. Heidi, Court, and I are very on top of this already weeding out the serious from the unserious. Also, for those new to the site, please don’t plug or spam them in comments either or they will be deleted.

Inside DWTS Source Says Ryan Lochte And Michael Phelps Welcome In The Ballroom

It’s hard to even think about the next season of Dancing With The Stars, but, there are several stories on several Olympians who have expressed they may want to dance on Dancing With The Stars. First, there is Ryan Lochte. Below is an interview with Today. Check out how Ryan would like to continue the rivalry with Michael Phelps on the dance floor. There is nothing in the works yet, but, an inside source to the show said Ryan and Michael are welcomed in the ballroom. More in detail below and at the link….

Even better would be a ballroom win over his teammate and pal Michael Phelps, whom Lochte said he’d like to dance against. “I mean since I am so used to competing against Michael Phelps, yeah, I’d have him on the show,” he told reporters, according to iVillage. And he’d be fine paired with any of the female pros, as Sports Illustrated reported, because all of them are quite lovely. (Might we suggest the uber-fun Lacey Schwimmer as his perfect match?)

Though Lochte has expressed interested in participating in “Dancing,” it sounds like producers haven’t made a move to invite him to join in an upcoming season yet. But that doesn’t mean “DWTS” won’t be extending an invite eventually.

“Nothing is in the works yet,” a show source told TODAY.com, “but rest assured, either (Lochte or Phelps) — or even better, both of them — would be welcome in the ballroom.”

Also, Michael Phelps told US Weekly, he’d be interesting in dancing as well….

At the OMEGA House “Spotlight On Swimming” event in London August 7, the 27-year-old athlete spoke with Us Weekly about possibly following in the footsteps of fellow U.S. Olympians Natalie Coughlin, 29, ApoloAnton Ohno, 30, and ShawnJohnson, 20, by competing on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.

“I haven’t really been known for my dancing. I know everyone who’s done it — I’ve talked to Apolo and Natalie about it, and they said they’ve enjoyed it and had a blast,” Phelps said. “I won’t say I’m ruling anything out, who knows?”

If he could choose a female swimmer to be his partner (instead of a pro dancer like Karina Smirnoff, 34, or Cheryl Burke, 28), Phelps would pick Coughlin, who finished in 10th place in Season 9. “She’s gone through it all before and Natalie and I have been on a lot of teams together,” Phelps explained. “She literally couldn’t stop talking about how much fun the show was.”

Hmmm?? Also, Missy Franklin has also expressed interest in dancing during an interview with Access Hollywood.

This fall, “Dancing with the Stars” ushers in its All-Star edition, but when they’re looking for new contenders again, Missy wants to sign up.

“I do want to do it. I would love to go on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ but, we’ll see how it works out with school and if I go pro and all those crazy things you have to worry about, but hopefully someday I would love to be on that show,” she said.

Wow, they’d all be cool to see dance. What do you think?

Thanks to Lori and Sandy for helping with this news!!xxx
