DWTS Season 14 – Rumor Round Up!!

You’ll notice that ProWatch is no longer in this spot – it had it’s day and I’m afraid we’re going to get nothing more until Tuesday. If you still want to visit it, you can here —> ProWatch.

Every season around this time we create a listing of people who have been rumored to be on the show for this season…and sometimes past seasons, if we see “suspicious” behavior. Things that make you go “hmmmm…” Well, thanks to Vogue, who keeps a list, here we are again.  Seriously – thank Vogue because I don’t have the time to hunt them all down, sadly. Wish I did.

Anyway, I tend to rank, categorize and editorialize as I go, so bear with me. :-)

ETA an update to Troy Aikmen. See below.

ETA #2 – Sasha Cohen is officially NOT dancing this season; she confirmed on twitter even though we had pretty much figured that one out. :-)

The Most Solid Season 14 Rumors

Jack Wagner, Melissa Gilbert and Sheri Shepherd – when TMZ first reported on this one, I was skeptical.  TMZ has a bit of a spotty record, although some have forgotten. A couple of seasons ago, they got the whole cast exactly right, but last season I tend to think they got played.  They got exactly nobody right…they claimed Nancy Grace, but AFTER others (including us) had reported it.  But, Gossip Cop backed them up this time, so I have to give it more weight. Of all the sites out there, Gossip Cop not only confirms some rumors, but puts the kibosh on others – some that I knew to be false.  They are more reliable, IMO. So…I have to say that I think this is the real deal. Melissa and Sherri are also past seasons rumored contestants – and we know that happens quite a bit. As for Jack, well, ABC Soaps in Depth said they heard a former GH star was dancing, hand Jack was let go from The Bold and the Beautiful (a CBS soap), so that kinda opens a window for him, eh??  As for the video of Melissa going into the DWTS studios…well, that doesn’t look like the normal entrance, but the building structure seems the same.  If so…well, doesn’t that eliminate her as Maks’ or Derek’s partner? Unless Derek was fibbing about when he starts rehearsing (next week, per Derek on Ryan’s show).

Maria Menudos – This one isn’t quite as solid as the others, and so far TMZ has no back up.  But I sure would like this one to be true.  Maria herself is giving nothing away. She’s following no pros, she’s making no teasing comments (that I’ve seen, anyway).   If I had a vote I would vote yes. :-)

 

The Not as Solid, but Still Kinda Solid Season 14 Rumors

Annika Sorenstam – Pro Golfer rumors coming from all sides, including golf aficionados, Tony Dovolani and Annika herself.  This one seems plausible, but not as plausible as others. She said she would like to do it, some on twitter are claiming she said yes (although those tweets read kinda weird to me).

Vince Young - Vince straight up said that he had been asked to be on DWTS. Couldn’t tell if he was joking, but the fact that he deleted the tweet was kinda telling.  Of course, being asked doesn’t mean he said yes.

 

Not Solid At All, but Not Speculation Either

Dolly Parton and Gavin Degraw - Both of these rumors came from Hollywood Life who, unfortunately, did not have a good track record last season.  And we haven’t heard much about it since the original posting. Not to mention that Dolly, when previously asked, said “hell no”.  At first I considered Gavin a more real possibility, but now I’m not so sure. UPDATE: He tweeted earlier today that he’s on his way to LA. Hmmm….

Aferdita Dreshaj - Miss Kosovo said not long ago that she was dancing on DWTS – but was she talking about the Kosovo version of the show? Probably – which is why I stuck her in this category.

Bruce Jenner – Bruce I could handle, but I gotta say no to any other Kardashian relatives. :-)  This comes from Hollywood Life once again.

Paula Deene – Hollywood Life was throwing a bunch of stuff at the DWTS wall and waiting to see what would stick. Paula was one of their rumored dancers. I will be curious to see if they get any right.

Bar Refaeli – She was rumored as in negotiation, but it was by a website that I had never heard of before. Not really sure what to make of it, actually, but why would she do it?

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. :-)

DWTS14 Possibility: Legendary Dallas Quarterback Troy Aikman To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Ok, before you read this, take note that I am grasping at straws here. As some of you have noticed at twitter, Peta Murgatroyd flew to Dallas and she’s “very excited” and “happy” much like she was last season at this time. Could she be meeting her new partner on Dancing With The Stars? Sally, one of our readers reminded us of the Troy Aikman rumor in a previous season (Season 11 to be exact). In case you don’t know, Troy Aikman is a former “legendary” quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and as you can see in the video below from TMZ (which was posted on July 29, 2010), Troy remarked he was going to do Dancing With The Stars “next year“. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

So, what do you think? Does this possibility have a leg to stand on and could Troy be Peta’s new partner (if it’s true she’s dancing)? I think they would make a striking and perfect couple and I bet he would be a good dancer too. Also, this is a huge A-lister imo!! Way to go to TPTB if this comes true. You are going to make a fan out of my husband yet.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS Season 11 – Rumors, Innuendos, Lies and Jokes?

UPDATE – This is why I always couch everything as a rumor or as a possible joke. :-) Because DWTS is a Pop Culture phenomenon along with American Idol. So, when ex-football players have a few drinks or are being just plain silly and are asked what they’re up to, they say “Dancing with the Stars”, of course. :-) And when people need attention, desperately, they tell other people the are going to be…wait for it…on Dancing with the Stars.

Don’t get me wrong – I think it’s HILARIOUS. Why? Because I’m pretty careful with how I word things…but others aren’t. ;-)

What am I talking about? Well, if you haven’t heard by now, Troy Aikman was joking. Supposedly. Either joking or the producers told him to shut the hell up. Who knows? Who cares? I just love the DRAMA. Also, quite a lot of chatter on twitter implying that Theresa was giving a false impression and that DWTS never asked her to be on the show. Well, that’s happened before, so no surprise there. But need I say – just because someone on Twitter says it’s true doesn’t make it…true. :-) Who knows if it is or not? I guess we’ll find out in a couple weeks.

At the end of the day, I’m just as hesitant to believe someone when they say the AREN’T going to be on the show, as I am when they say the ARE. I can be very annoying like that – ask my Derek fan friends. :-)

Random Internet Quote: “Wait, Troy Aikman is too good to be on DWTS, but he’ll film a Rent-A-Center Commercial with Hulk Hogan? :-)

DWTS Season 11 Rumor…or Joke? Troy Aikman!

Per TMZ, Troy is signed up for Season 11 of DWTS. But even TMZ isn’t sure if he’s being serious or facetious. :-) And neither am I.
