DWTS Season 19 – Rumor Roundup!!!

Greetings from hot & sunny Spring, TX :-) I’m actually typing this poolside at my aunt’s house, as I’m on vacation right now – but Vogue & Heidi have been putting in some serious hours on the casting rumors, and as I have the past few seasons, I thought it might be good to work up a good summary post for all the casting rumors that have cropped between the end of last season and right now.  8-)

If any new casting rumors pop up between now and the cast announcement next week, I’ll try to update – but at the rate they’ve been flowing these past few days, it might not happen immediately.  Please be patient :-)

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.

Legitimate possibilities:

Andi Dorfman
Randy Couture
Kacy Catanzaro
Antonio Sabato Jr.
Janel Parrish
Lolo Jones
Sadie Robertson
Betsey Johnson
Lea Thompson
Bethany Mota
Jonathan Bennett

Longshots:

Lindsay Lohan
Meagan Tandy
Tommy Chong
Colton Smith
Andy Pettitte
James Storm
Shania Twain
Ashley Gold
Landon Donovan
Tim Howard
Kandi Burress/someone from Bravo
Josh Murray
Sara Evans

Wannabes/Campaigners:

Vincent M. Ward
Jane Savoie

Pure Randomness:

Tavis Smiley
Carly Steel
Shemar Moore
Courtney Robertson

The “No’s”:

Jim Kelly

 

So which rumors are you guys most excited about? Which ones do you think are bogus? Let’s hear it!

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 19 Rumor: Shania Twain, Ashley Gold, Landon Donovan, Tim Howard To Dance?

Wow, Shania Twain? What I’d give to see this new rumor was true? Here are a couple of excerpts from USA Today and Hollywood Life talking about. Be sure to read both links to investigate some more.

We probably shouldn’t get too excited. But Shania Twain did a Facebook chat earlier this week and a fan asked if she would ever do Dancing With the Stars.

Her answer: “I’d consider it!”

So, ABC, there you go. Give the country star a call!

Plus, a source tells HollywoodLife.com that the chances of Shania joining the cast are pretty strong.

“Those at DWTS are very confident that Shania Twain will join the show in its next season,” a source reveals to us EXCLUSIVELY. “She is very, very, very close to signing on the show.”

Also, below are some other rumors from Hollywood Life. A few of them we’ve before. I say, bring them on too. What do you think?

Rumors are swirling that Ashley Gold, L.A. Galaxy star Landon Donovan and goalkeeper Tim Howard might join Season 19 of DWTS as well — this could be one incredible season!

Thanks to Vin for the Hollywood Life link!

DWTS19 Watchout: Kandi Burruss or Another Bravo Star To Dance??

Not sure if there is anything to this speculation from LaLate. They mention Kandi Burruss and some other celebs from Bravo for the next season of Dancing With The Stars…

Is Kandi Burruss joining Dancing with the Stars next season? While Kandi, ABC and BravoTV have yet to comment which Bravolebrity, if any, could be joining DWTS next season, at the moment it would seem likely that Kandi would be the likely Bravolebrity frontrunner followed by Kyle Richards and either Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Barney.

ABC’s DWTS castings took a turn several seasons ago when the show casted Lisa Vanderpump as its first BravoTV star. The RHOBH & Pump Rules star at the time had one of the digital footprints on social media of any Bravo personality. In fact, Lisa’s appearance played a major storyline in the last RHOBH season with the “fake fainting” debate. Vanderpump has admitted to news that NeNe Leakes often calls her for advice on housewives shows. And shortly around the same time, Leakes inked her spot on DWTS, the second Bravolebrity to date.

DWTS19 Rumor And Watchout: Soccer Player Tim Howard To Dance?

First, Landon Donovan and now another soccer player named Tim Howard is rumored to dance in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Hollywood Life reports that producers have an eye on him. What’s more, Cheryl Burke says she wants to dance him.

“Everyone saw Tim get his hands on almost everything during the World Cup game against Belgium and now Dancing wants to get his hands on one of the dancers,” a source connected to the show tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

One dancer in particular is already eager to parter with Tim!

“Cheryl Burke is the frontrunner if Tim joins the show,” our source reveals. “She wants to dance with him and once the holiday passes, he will 100 percent be asked to join the show.” So exciting!

More at Hollywood Life.

What do you think if true? I don’t know who he is, but, I’m ok with it. I think he would look good dancing with Cheryl as well.
