Rumor or Reality, Part Deux!! Carole Baskin and More for DWTS Season 29

Is it surprising that I don’t know who these people are beyond vague name recognition for a season that is supposed to be “next level”. Color me NOT surprised. Oh, but I do know who AJ and Dr. Fauci are. And Anne Heche. OF COURSE Fauci said no. Duh. Only DWTS producers would ask at a time like this. From E! Online:

Dancing With the Stars may be making a lot of changes for season 29, but apparently none of those changes involve making the cast list less chaotic.

Sources tell E! News exclusively that Carole Baskin, Chrishell Stause, Anne Heche, and AJ McLean are all in talks to compete for the mirrorball trophy this season, and are close to being confirmed. Sources also say that Dr. Anthony Fauci, coronavirus expert, was asked, but declined to participate, which is really a shame. Just imagine Carole Baskin and Dr. Fauci standing on that stage together, awaiting the results of America’s vote.
