DWTS 17 Rumors: Farrah Abraham, Patricia Krentcil, Bella Thorne, Seth MacFarlane, WWE Superstar to Dance?

Hollywood Life is kicking around a few more names for the rumor mill for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. Some of them, we’ve reported already: John Stamos, Paula Deen, and Jason Varitek. However, take a look at the other new names to add: Farrah Abraham (who?), Patricia Krentcil (who?), Bella Thorne (again who?), a WWE superstar(who could this be? In the past we’ve seen Shelley Martinez, Maria Kanellis, and the Real Melina rumored or campaigning to dance …not that this means anything?) and Seth MacFarlane(ok, so this might be a good one!).

So far, they are awaiting confirmations from John Stamos, former baseball player Jason Varitek, Paula Deen, Backdoor Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil, a WWE Superstar, Bella Thorne and Seth MacFarlane! They are hoping for confirmations soon, but it’s coming down to the last minute. None of these people are definites, but they have been asked and it’s in their hands,” a source close to production tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

Seeing Uncle Jesse shake his hips on the dance floor, sans shirt, would certainly help us feel a little bit better about Sean’s absence from the dancing competition series. And we have a feeling that Farrah knows a thing or two about doing the tango on camera.

You can read the full article at Hollywood Life. Note that this site isn’t reputable of being correct on their rumors, but, it can go either way. Remember this post from last season? As Heidi likes to say, “you be the judge”.

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 .

Dancing with the Stars Season 13 Cast – Pick me!! Pick Me!!

Every season we have campaigns run by stars or their fanbases to get them on DWTS. Starting last season, DWTS has gone out of its way to encourage massive campaigning – yet they pick no one who has a serious campaign up and running. Why do they do this?? Who knows? I often wonder if they do it to clog up twitter so badly that those of us who look can’t separate the campaign from the rumor. :-) I do know I’ve seen a few campaigners in the last few days that I don’t think we’ve mentioned before – and some that we have, like Shelley Martinez, who haven’t given up just yet. We’ve covered a few that were new to this season, such as Michael E. Knight, Randy Jones and Ellen Kay.

So who are the newbies?? Or, if not newbies, people I haven’t seen campaigning before? Let’s start with Christine Lakin. Christine is an actress with a pretty long resume but nothing HUGE – which means she’s perfect for DWTS. You might know her as Al from “Step by Step”. It’s not ringing a bell with me, but I’m sure she has a lot of fans, since she has people campaigning for her on abc.com -and she’s up for it!

There was a problem with the blakbirdpie shortcode

Christine is also listed as “choreographer” for a few theater productions.  So, ringer by talent??

Next on the list is Tracy DiMarco from Jerseylicious – I wouldn’t say Tracy is campaigning, per se, just that I saw a tweet from her where she indicated that she was up for it. Of course, I can’t find that tweet NOW. :-) You’ll have to take my word for it.  I think it more likely that she has fans campaigning for her.  I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I have seen a few episodes of Jerseylicious :-) and she would be an interesting girl to have on the show. Kind of a female Situation with a bit of a hair and makeup obsession. :-)  Seriously, I like Jerseylicious a thousand times more than the two episodes I saw of Jersey Shore – no, I don’t know why. :-) Would love to see her with Derek or Mark simply because I don’t think either of them would know what to do with her….although Derek did have Lil’ Kim and he handled that very well.  Then there’s Maks – who puts down all Jersey related shows for how they portray the NYC metropolitan area. :-) THAT would be fun. :-)

Next up….the Real Melina.  No, I don’t know her last name. :-)  She’s one of the ladies of the WWE!  She’s also a model who has been in several pagents.   Is she up for it?? Well, let’s just say I would pay BIG MONEY to see this:

“@ If you were paired with Max and he said something rude you could kick his butt. He is the best though.”-I accept the challenge!

She’s into it!!

Don't know if you have seen the New Diva Melina section on http://www.RealMelina.com also the DWTS section Shirlz put up. I love you guys!
“@ @ would u do @ if asked??????”-Of course. I'd love 2 learn how to dance. That would be incredibly fun!

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. :-)
