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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 20 – Casting Rumor Round-Up

So it’s that time again – we’re at t minus 69ish hours until the cast announcement, and it’s time to take stock of all the casting rumors we’ve seen thus far.  As always, I’ve divided the rumors up by how likely they are to actually be on this season – “legitimate possibilities” are names we’ve heard multiple times from multiple (reputable) sources, or stars that have dropped some big hints themselves; “longshots” are names we’ve heard and it’s not out of the realm of possibility that they’d do the show, but they’re less likely than the “legitimate possibilities”; “wannabes/campaigners” are stars that have said they would do the show if asked, or are actively trying to get on the show, but haven’t been reported as an actual rumor by another source; “pure randomness” is just that – things we’ve seen that are interesting and might or might not mean anything, but are worth mentioning nonetheless; and the “definite no’s” are those that have said no, they wouldn’t do the show if asked. I also added a new category – PDWTS Guesses – which are just that: guesses we’ve made, based on nothing else but gut feelings we’ve had.  They are NOT RUMORS! Just our own guesses, based on whatever :-)

We’ve included links to our previous posts on these rumors, to jog your memory.  And it’s all in one handy-dandy place…because we love you :-) And accept no substitutes, kids – any blog can slap a “rumor roundup” label on something, but that doesn’t mean it’s as good as the real thing…we’ve been calling ours “rumor roundup” for YEARS 😉

ETA #1: With US Weekly basically confirming the Daily Mail’s claims, it’s pretty much confirmed that Val’s partner is Rumer WillisAnd then DancingABC posted the below pic with a clue about Emma’s partner…who else thinks it’s motorcycling enthusiast Chris Soules?

ETA #2: The Shane Harper randomness has gained some traction, so I’m upgrading him from “pure randomness to “legitimate possibility”; we’ve got Michael Sam’s name thrown in the mix, which has made me downgrade Malcolm Butler & Russell Wilson to longshots, since they’ve never had more than one football player on the same season; and the DancingABC Instagram has thrown us another clue, with Mark’s partner hidden behind a curtain of blonde hair.  I’m thinking it’s Savannah Chrisley, who has sported varying lengths (and shades) of blonde over the years, and Mark seems to be the designated pro for good Christian girls 😛 Why do I get the feeling this is going to be a long night of updates?

Who is Emma Slater’s partner? The #DWTS cast will be revealed live TOMORROW on @goodmorningamerica #GMADancing

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. Check out some of my other work at pureamericasgottalent.com!

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Sharon Osbourne??

I know this is an article for “Strictly Come Dancing” in the UK, but, I keep wondering if she’d do Dancing With The Stars in the US being both of her kids did….and especially with Louis Van Amstel possibly in the mix? Anyway, in the take below, Sharon Osbourne mentions how she’d love to dance on “Strictly Come Dancing”, but, doesn’t think she could do it. Read on for more from The Irish Examiner….

“Would I do Strictly in the UK? I would love to, I would really, really love to, because it is honestly my favourite programme to watch, it’s so much fun,” she said.

But she added: “But I’m too lazy and I don’t like to sweat, so I don’t think I could do it.”

Sharon, who appears in the new MoneySuperMarket car insurance ad, said she fancies freestyling her own dance moves if she was to appear on Strictly.

“Well, if I did do Strictly and I was brave enough and wasn’t so lazy, I wouldn’t like to do the foxtrot,” she continued.

“You hold your head a funny way and it’s all funny head movements – kind of like robotic. I would definitely be one of those people that would freestyle and throw myself around for a few minutes – and I’d like to be thrown around by my partner!”

DWTS Season 18 Rumors: Tim Tebow, Ray Lewis, and Stuart Scott??

Hollywood Life has been known to get a few of their rumors right and sometimes not. Anyway, check out what they are reporting on Sean Avery (who we’ve reported about before), Tim Tebow (rumored in Season 14), Ray Lewis (now there is a name we haven’t heard yet) and Stuart Scott (another new name).

Sean won’t be the only athlete competing on season 18 – Tim Tebow and Ray Lewis have also been asked, HollywoodLife.com has learned.

Tim, who was the quarterback for the New York Jets and the Denver Broncos, does have a good amount of free time, so it’d be surprising if he passed. Ray is a famous Baltimore Ravens alum who we’d also love to take the dance floor. Also on the list is ESPN analyst Stuart Scott, who could talk us through it all!

More at Hollywood Life including names we’ve already reported about…Bruce Jenner, Sharon Osbourne, Juan Pablo Galavis, Cody Simpson, Kelly Brook, and Carla Hall. Let us know what you think!

Also, if you haven’s seen our new twitter findings, be sure you read this post too if you haven’t yet. It’s a must read!

Sharon Osbourne Talks Of Why She Got So Emotional Over Her Sons First Performance On DWTS

This is so cute. Sharon Osbourne stopped by Universal Studios Hollywood to chat with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour. She talks of why she got so emotional over son Jack Osbourne’s first performance on “Dancing with the Stars.” She said, “I was so nervous. I felt sick, I honestly did. At the end, I was just so relieved, I just sobbed.” More below as well as talk on her other projects taking place at the moment.

Dancing With The Stars Louis Van Amstel On The Talk “Yes, You Can!”

Yesterday, Louis Van Amstel was a guest on The Talk. Sharon Osbourne not only held the interview, she raved on everything Louis did for her daughter Kelly. She said Kelly was a “lost little girl” before she met Louis and that he turned her into a “woman”. Louis went on to say how much Kelly changed him too. He said Kelly was the “biggest inspiration ever on Dancing With The Stars”. Louis then talked a little of what they went through on Dancing With The Stars. Great interview…and touching as well. You can see part of the interview in the video below. To see the work out/dance part, watch the full episode >>>>here .
