Their insider also said ABC is interested in Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian and Honey Boo Boo’s mother, Mama June. More below….

Ortiz is ready to rumba
Boxer Victor Ortiz is going from seeing stars to dancing with them. Sources tells us the 26-year-old fighter who was knocked out when he dropped his guard against Floyd Mayweather in 2011 has signed on for the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars.” Our insider also says that ABC is interested in adding Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian and Honey Boo Boo’s recently slimmed down mother, Mama June, to the new cast.

What do you think? I don’t mind Victor or Emily, but, please NO to Kourtney or Honey Boo Boo’s mother!! How is she a star?

Let’s get Miss Heidi’s perspective and be sure to let us know your thoughts too.

Heidi: Sounds to me like Victor is the only real rumor in this bunch and the rest are just an after thought. In fact, Victor might be the first actual rumor of the season. Everything prior to this has been campaigns and wishful thinking on the part of some “stars”.  As for the other names? I think the Daily News just threw those in there to round out their article. I think they heard ONE name and asked for some other speculation of their source.  BTW, I thought we had rumored this guy before…but that was Tito Ortiz of the UFC.  I’ve had enough of the Kardashians to last a lifetime and Honey Boo Boo’s mom?? Heaven help us, the dumbing down of America continues. That goes for all the K women too, actually.
