Dancing With The Stars Season 19: More Celebrity Rumors And Troupe Info

Sorry for being late with this report. Charlie’s team of Angels have been really busy today working and travelling. Anyway, below is TMZ with more celeb leaks…

Famously eccentric designer Betsey Johnson is bringing her brand of crazy to “Dancing with Stars” … along with the much younger YouTube fashionista Bethany Mota.

As we told you … ABC had been looking to sign a big social media star … and found her in 18-year-old Mota … who’s amassed more than 7 million fans with her YouTube tutorials on fashion, hair and makeup.

Sources close to the show tell us … producers have also tapped “Back to the Future” actress Lea Thompson, Jonathan Bennett from “Mean Girls,” Janel Parrish from “Pretty Little Liars,” and Sadie Robertson — granddaughter of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.

Fascinating, let us know what you think? I love Lea Thompson especially!

Also, Gossip Cop is reporting Tommy Chong is going to dance. Good job Heidi who found this rumor on the 19th. Too fun!!

Just remember nothing is 100% until the official cast announcement on September 4th.

Last, but, not least, Kristyn Burtt reports Henry Byalikov, Jenna Johnson, Lindsey Arnold and Sasha Farber as this season’s troupe members. (what about Gleb? :( )

DWTS Season 19 – GMA Pro Watch!! (Live Blog)

Hi all!! Decided to start a new post because the other one was getting cluttered and would be hard to read for anyone coming back for the first time in a while. Click to read the old post.

I was watching GMA at the beginning and they teased nothing – which means I have to wait until they go to the first commercial. Boo.

ETA: Vogue here! GMA just said the announcement was soon coming. Will Derek Hough be back, they ask? We will soon find out!!

ETA: I’m back! They just teased it again, not mentioning any single pro, but showing Cheryl and Drew.

ETA: They just showed their play room with all the screens with big question marks and asked “Maks? Derek? Who will be back and what will their role be??”

ETA4: Okay, there are four pros in studio. I’m guessing Cheryl and Mark. Not sure of the other two. And then they show a child photo of Karina – I take it as she’s IN. They showed Maks/Meryl, Derek’s Ameska Macy’s and Cheryl/Drew – clues.

ETA5: Latest tease shows Derek and Jennie Garth and says 8:22 is the time for the reveal. Ask again about Derek and Maks’ role. Asked if they would be going “head to head”. Um, yeah, Derek is super competitive. :::rolls eyes:::

ETA6: Cheryl is in Studio and competing. Tony is in studio. Karina also in studio, along with Val. Switch up is back. Results show the first two weeks. Len gone for part of season. There will be some “guest judges”. COMMERCIAL/Local News Break.

ETA7: Next…Mark Ballas. See below for the rest. Can’t say I’m happy Derek is back. No vacay for Heidi. :-)  I was typing as I went and just realized no Sharna. Kinda devastated about that.  Also, no Gleb in the pro lineup despite his wife’s tweet. He must be back in the troupe. 

The starting positions below are based on the individual pro’s status last season. Troupe is still unknown. Read more..

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Pros Become Gladys Knight’s Pips At The Hollywood Bowl

Music legend and much loved Dancing With The Stars contestant, Gladys Knight, is performing at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend. Not only that, and watch out, Dancing With The Stars pros Tristan MacManus, Sasha Farber, Henry Byalikov, and Artem Chigvintsev are performing with her too. Below is some coverage from George Pennacchio and ABC7. Great interview and isn’t fun to see them all again?

ETA: The Examiner has an article posted on the show. Below is take about she and the pros they danced. Be sure to see the link for more. LOL to “it was on my bucket list”.

Gladys Knight proved why she is at legendary status in her 75 minute set. The seven-time GRAMMY Award winner has earned number one hits in Pop, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has also had a career in film, television. Knight showed why she is still in the business after all of these decades and her voice still incredible.

Knight kicked off her set opening the show sitting at the piano and performing “Hard To Say I’m Sorry”. She told the crowd “this is something you never seen me do”. She stated that she wanted to take piano lessons as a child but with there being four kids, her mom could not afford it so her sister Brenda got the piano lessons and she got to sing. She said it was on her “bucket list’ as she played the piano during the show. She then went on to perform “You Should Be Dancing” by The Bee Gees. Back up dancers come on stage to dance and it is Sasha Farber, Henry Byalikov and Artem Chigvintsev from “Dancing With The Stars”. Then comes Tristan MacManus who was Knight’s dancing partner when she competed on the hit television show to lead her into a dance routine. She joked afterwards saying “it was on my bucket list”.

Mary Murphy was at the show last night. She posted some fun shots. @JDSwartz posted some instagrams too…

And isn’t his a great shot?!

How has your summer away from Dancing with the Stars gone so far?

I HAVE HAD A GREAT SUMMER! I always try to keep myself busy with shows and dancing and improving myself as a dancer.

But I must say I am having major DWTS withdrawals. Although the world cup this year kept me busy too J

We hear you are embarking on a summer dance teaching tour soon. Can you tell us more about it and what it’s about? How can fans take part in it?

Yes I will be touring Tucson, Phoenix and finishing up in Las Vegas. Basically I love to teach and I love to see people fall in love with this art form called dance! I will be doing a number of workshops and lessons and little demonstrations. I’m very excited as this is my first one of this little tours! I mainly just travel for shows where I perform so this one is a little different. For bookings please call Stacey Newman on 602 5253842 There is a big ball on the 18th of July where I will be dancing!
