Dancing with the Stars Exclusive Cast Incorrectly Revealed

Gossip Sauce posted a list of Dancing with the Stars cast members on August 21st. This prompted at least 5 other sites to use the Gossip Sauce list of Dancing with the Stars contestants for their own website. Here’s the list provided by Gossip Sauce.
Kim Kardashian
Lance Bass
Toni Braxton
Brooke Burke
Maurice Greene
Cody Linley
Susan Lucci
Warren Sapp
Misty May-Treanor
Ted McGinley
Mark McGrath
Cloris Leachman
Jeff Ross

There’s only one major problem with this list of Dancing with the Stars Contestants. I know for sure that one of these people on the list isn’t going to be here this year. They were going to be on the show, but something happened and that’s changed.

My guess is that a number of people on this list are going to be on the show, but my sources are telling me that it’s definitely not an entirely accurate list.

Of course, guessing who is on the list is great fodder for discussion. So, here’s some of the other rumors I’ve seen floating around the internet.

There’s been a number of rumors about George Lopez being on the show. My guess is that George Lopez would be a horrible dancer, but entertaining regardless of his dance skills.

This site called Reality TV Spoilers posted their Dancing with the Stars spoilers.

N*SYNC member Lance Bass, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” Kim Kardashian, singer Toni Braxton, rodeo star and Jewel’s husband Ty Murray, “The Brady Bunch” mom Florence Henderson and original Batman Adam West who, at 79, would be the oldest participant ever. Former Miami Dolphin Dan Marino was approached, but he declined.

Warren Sapp has also been listed as a potential contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Can you imagine big bad Warren Sapp doing a quickstep? At least he could lift any of the girls, but he might also snap them in half on accident.

Misty May-Treanor and Ted Mcginley were also offered on Twitter as possible Dancing with the Stars cast members. I bet those twitters came from the original Dancing with the Stars spoiler at the top.

The good part about all this is that we’re going to find out who it really is tomorrow.
