Jodie Sweetin has been rumored to dance on Dancing With The Stars for several seasons in the past (season 12, season 13). Is season 21 finally her time? Check out this recent follow to Val Chmerkovskiy (screencap below). I’ve actually been watching her for a couple of weeks as recently she mentioned she had exciting news coming in a week which she never announced (lol). She also just recently joined instagram wanting followers. She also attended the Dancing With The Stars finals last season. Hmmm?? OR could it be she followed Val because he and Maks are doing an episode of “Fuller House? One of our bloggers, Lois, wrote this morning that a friend of hers was at the tapings yesterday in which the two of them were doing a club scene. Not sure, but, let’s keep a watch out just in case. Thanks to everyone who tweeted us this news.
Last night, Dancing With The Stars Val Chmerkovskiy attended the 2015 Samsung Launch Party! To see some photos, click on the photo below.
While DWTS had yet to finalize its cast when we spoke with showrunner Rob Wade, he told us fans could expect to see most of their favorites return for season 21. “I don’t think the cast will be much different than the one we’ve had the last couple of seasons,” he said.
Still, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any changes. So who’s definitely in and who might be out when the reality hit returns on Sept. 14?
The Judges: While Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli are all definitely returning to their seats at the judge’s table, the jury is still out on head judge Len Goodman’s involvement. (Goodman had previously said he was leaving the show prior to season 20, but then back-tracked.)
“It’s been back and forth the last year. I said to him, look, see how you feel,” told us. “I’m waiting. He’s in England, he’s working. I think there’s a good chance he’s not going to back for some of the shows…We’ll see where he lands, we’ll see how his health is, what he wants to do. But whatever happens this season, whether he comes back for some or none, the following season…I’m sure he’d be back for.”
For now, the show is once again looking at having some big names stop by to fill in for Goodman, with Wade confirming, “We’re looking at guest judges.”
Also, Val wants another mirror ball…
And fans shouldn’t expect Val Chmervoskiy to rest on his recent win with Rumer Willis, as the show’s casting director Deena Katz told us, “Three days after he won, he texted me like, ‘Babe, I need another one.’ I was like, ‘You just had one!’ And he’s like, ‘I need to do it again!'”
So yes, expect Val to return as well. (He even called and left a voicemail for Wade as we were speaking. No joke!)

Val Chmerkovskiy Talks About The New Season Of Dancing With The Stars, Creating Something Special, And More
Val Chmerkovskiy talked with People today at the D23 Expo about the next season of Dancing With The Stars. He said he doesn’t know who his partner is yet, but, he can’t wait to be surprised. Below is more….
With the next season looming, does Chmerkovskiy, 29, have a particular dance partner in mind?
“I like the surprise element, honestly,” he says. “I don’t know who my partner is, and I don’t want to know until I find out because there is a magic in the surprise element. I just want somebody who wants to be there and wants to work hard. I don’t mind anything else, how you look, in shape, out of shape, your celebrity status or not. I just want to work with a person that I am inspired by and that together we will be able to create something special.”

This is just so sweet, I had to post!!
ruelarue: As my journey as your partner comes to an end and your next season with a whole new partner and new experience begins, there are a few things I thought about today. I honestly don’t know if I have words to describe what this past season or this tour, but most importantly our partnership has meant to me. I know I have tried on many occasion while on tour to describe to the audience what I felt but I have always fallen short to put in words how I feel. So I’ll do my best…first I have to thank you as my teacher for challenging me everyday through your own passion and dedication to your art, for pushing me past the limits of what I believed I was capable of and even for occasionally driving me crazy with trying to make all of our dances the best they could be. Secondly I thank you for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself for putting up with me when I was scared or insecure, and being the person that didn’t let me feel like I could fail no matter what anyone else said. I am truly grateful to call you my friend and I am so proud that we won together, I wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else. I can’t wait to root for you next season. love to you always @iamvalc

Maks Chmerkovskiy Talks On Relationships, Tony Dovolani Talks About Being A Judge On Dancing With The Stars
Maks Chmerkovskiy talked with People about his relationship with Peta Murgatroyd. It take some effort to keep seeing her being she’s on tour, but, they are happier than ever. He also says he and Val never disagree on anything with an exception to politics. More below and at the link.
Chmerkovskiy, 35, says he and his on-again/off-again girlfriend, who have been romantically linked since 2012, could not be happier. “Everything’s amazing,” he gushed. “She’s awesome.”
As for another of relationship that scores a perfect 10, the bad boy of ballroom told PEOPLE that he and brother Val – DWTS’s reigning champ – have never squabbled, not even as children: “You grow up with constant reminders [from your parents] that, ‘When we … die, it’s just the two of you.’ You can’t be fighting. … We never fought. We never argued.”
There is one exception to their harmony. Chmerkovskiy notes, “We’ve disagreed on some political issues. I am [a] very right[-wing] kind of type; he’s very liberal.”
Tony Dovolani also talked with People about wanting to be a judge on Dancing With The Stars and he thinks he’d make a great one (hmmmm, I’m not liking the sounds of that idea at all).
“I would love to judge, and I think I would be a great judge,” Dovolani told PEOPLE at the 10th anniversary party for Dance With Me, a chain of dance studios co-founded by Dovolani’s fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
“Considering I’ve had so many different partners, I know the road that every single one of those partners has taken. It’s not like I’ve always had the ringers,” Dovolani said, making a convincing argument for why he could follow in the footsteps of Julianne Hough, who moved from the ballroom floor to the judges’ table in 2014.
“I’ve had the challenges. I’ve had the ringers. I’ve had the ones that needed to be worked on. [I’ve had] the ones that were going through tough times in their lives. So I feel like I would be a great judge,” continued Dovolani – who has previously partnered with NeNe Leakes and Leah Remini, and who took home the All-Stars season’s Mirrorball Trophy with Melissa Rycroft.
Even if he doesn’t become a judge in the immediate future, Dovolani still plans to remain part of the ballroom competition: “I think my dancing shoes are still not done,” he said. “I can do whatever they want me to do because I love the show. I love what it represents. I love what it does for people. So in any capacity that I’m involved with Dancing with the Stars, I’m very happy to do it.”
