DWTS Rumor: Caitlyn Jenner To Dance In The New DWTS Sports Edition??

We’ve had this rumor a multiple of times. I doubt this is true anymore than the other times…and especially from this source. From the National Enquirer, they report Caitlyn Jenner is the producers number choice to dance in the Dancing With The Stars all sports edition. Be sure to read the link for more.

Rob Shuter reports…. Competition will be fierce on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” come spring — it will return with an all-athletes edition and show bosses want ex-Olympian Caitlyn Jenner!

“Jenner is one of the most celebrated athletes of all time and will bring drama and glamour to the ballroom,” an insider confided to The National ENQUIRER.

“She is the producers’ number one choice.”

My thoughts: If this rumor is true, I really don’t mind it as long as there isn’t a lot dumb drama. Let us know what you think in comments.

As you might know from a previous report, there is a Dancing With The Stars Sports Edition planned for the Spring of 2018. So, what is your Wish List for it? Let us know in comments.

Johnny Weir (or any ice skater for that matter)
Scottie Pippen
Dennis Rodman (lol)
Any football player (but, not anyone who has given the knee during the anthem! 🙄 )
Dale Earnhart Jr.
Chris Evert
Jimmy Conners

Colin Kaepernick , Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kobe Bryant To Dance In New DWTS Sports Edition??

Could the producers of Dancing With The Stars be thinking of getting Colin Kaepernick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. to dance in the new Dancing With The Stars Sports Edition next season? Here’s a take on the subject from Hollywood Life. Be sure to read the link for more.

“The show really wants to make a splash and they really want to get some major sports stars on next season and the top two on their list are Colin Kaepernick and Dale Earnhardt. Dale is retiring from NASCAR and they have wanted him for years and have asked forever for him to dance on the show and having Colin is just obvious with him being in the news for all the guy’s activism. The stories they could both share would be amazing and having the show only go four weeks, producers feel that they can get these big names because they don’t have to commit to a long process and timeframe. The show is very confidant that they can pull it off and are working hard to make it happen.”

I’m all for Dale dancing, but, absolutely no to Colin!

Here’s something also on the possibility of Kobe Bryant dancing (thanks Vin!). From TMZ via TooFab. Kobe has been rumored numerous times in the past. I’d love to see him dance…

With “Dancing with the Stars” doing a full sports-themed competition with athletes next season, Derek Fisher told TooFab.com “Kobe’s name keeps coming up.”

“He loves the show. He and the family watch it,” Fisher said … “[Producers] should at least try and call him!”

Let us know what you think of these three rumors so far in comments.

ETA: Well, I don’t think Dale Earnhart Jr. is too interested in doing Dancing With The Stars. Check out the tweet below for how he replied. LOL He’s too funny…

PureDWTS Dancing with the Stars Junior, Season 1 – Alabama Barker “Would Love To Be On DWTSJ”

Thought I’d do a quick sweep of the interwebs this morning, to see if anyone has heard anything about Dancing with the Stars Junior – ’cause lord knows I haven’t (and neither has Deep Throat).  Didn’t find much other than the scant amount of info in the original press release (and just other outlets parroting that Tom would not be hosting), but I did stumble across this little nugget from a few weeks back at ET:

Is Alabama Luella Barker destined for Dancing with the Stars Junior?!

Travis Barker’s daughter is just 11 years old – but with her debut single, “Our House,” out now – she’s ready to claim the spotlight.

When the father-daughter duo stopped by ET on Monday, Alabama revealed she’d love to take center stage on ABC’s DWTS youngster spinoff, set to premiere this spring.

“I would love to… let’s do it,” she said, noting that she has some dancing skills up her sleeve.

 Apparently dad Travis Barker (of Blink 182 fame) approves, which makes me wonder if her mom, DWTS season 3 contestant Shanna Moakler, is also on board – they did say in the press release that they’d be casting child stars, as well as possibly some of the children of former contestants…Alabama fits both bills.

And she appears to have some moves, too…I wouldn’t mind seeing her on the show.  Thoughts?

PureDWTS Cast Rumors & Watchout – Ayesha Curry Says She’s Been Approached to Do DWTS, Might Do It In The Future

I’m gonna go ahead and file this one under “watch out in the next few seasons”, because as we’ve seen, some stars spend several years as cast rumors until the time is right.

Cookbook author Ayesha Curry (who’s also married to NBA star Steph Curry) stopped by ET to talk about her new cookwear line, and gave this answer when asked if her husband would ever do DWTS:

Asked whether her husband of six years, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, would ever entertain joining the show down the line, Curry joked that someone in their immediate family is desperate for him to put on the dancing shoes. “I don’t  know if he would make the decision to do it, but his mom really wants him to do it,” she said with a laugh.

The 28-year-old mother of two shared that she’s actually been asked to compete on DWTS.

“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but I have been approached to do it and I chicken out every single time,” Curry revealed. “I’ve got two left feet.”

While Curry isn’t shy about posting videos of her dancing or grooving to music on social media, she insists she doesn’t have rhythm — though, we beg to differ!

But she didn’t fully shut the door on a future DWTS appearance, saying she’d “maybe” do it in due time. “Down the road… in a couple of years,” she said. “The only motivator for me, in my mind, is that I would get in phenomenal shape and that’d be a great perk.”

So it sounds like she’s not completely ruled out the possibility of doing the show – although I doubt that matters, because as we’ve seen, a “no” can become an “ok, fine!” if the price is right (looking at YOU, Nick Lachey). I wouldn’t mind seeing her – I think she might actually be the type of calm, focused partner Keo would need to make it past the first couple weeks of the season. Thoughts?

Gleb Savchenko Chats On New Baby, Hints On His New Partner For DWTS Season 23

Finally, something with Gleb Savchenko (I swear….what are these producers trying to do to me?). He talks on rehearsals so far and gives hints on his new partner for Dancing With The Stars Season 23. Gleb also talks on Elena, Olivia, and his new baby. From People

“I can’t tell you who my partner is yet!” the pro dancer, 33, tells PEOPLE. “She’s very easy-going and so fun. That’s all I’m going to say!”
But there is a lot Savchenko is able to say about returning for his fourth season of the ABC dance competition.

As he gears up for the Sept. 18 premiere, the pro opens up about welcoming a second daughter with wife Elena Samodanova earlier this month, how Samodanova serves as his muse and what he thinks about his competition for season 25.

How have rehearsals been going so far?
It’s very important that you listen to your partner and try to create routines that let her shine. The beginning of the season is all about listening and learning about them and their strengths. As long as they are emotionally open to trying things and telling their story, then choreographing is very easy. There are fun dances, emotional dances and dramatic dances, so it’s different every week, and I enjoy pushing myself to my limits and trying new things.

You became a dad for the second time on Aug. 1. Are you exhausted?
When they tell you your second kid isn’t as life changing as having your first kid, that’s absolutely not true. It’s been absolutely life-changing. It’s a new life and it’s amazing. All my girls are doing amazing, and I love them so much. I was on tour with DWTS, but I was able to fly back to them and spend time with them, and now I’m back in L.A. getting ready for the show, but they’re going to be coming here soon. I’m looking forward to being a father to these two cutest little girls. It’s great that [older daughter Olivia, 6] can help, too. She can kind of babysit and watch her if we need to do something for a second. It’s great. The house is full of toys. It’s just awesome.

Go to People for lots more.

PureDWTS Season 25 Cast Rumors Continue: Barbara Corcoran from Shark Tank Is Dancing!

I’m gonna start referring to today as “the sieve” because my god – all the leaks 😛

Looks like we have another name to add to the board – Shark Tank businesswoman Barbara Concoran, according to E!:

Barbara is one of the investors on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank, and has been with the show for all eight seasons. The businesswoman isn’t the first of ABC’s Sharks to compete on DWTS, as Robert Herjavec was part of the season 20 cast, and while he didn’t win the mirrorball trophy, he landed himself a wife in pro partner Kym Johnson.

I feel like adding that Barbara’s actually the third Shark we’ve had on the show – Mark Cuban being the first, and Robert Herjavec being the second.  I’ve always thought she was one tough cookie, and looks like she’s in fantastic shape – so she could have some staying power this season.

Anyone getting as tired as Vogue & I from keeping up with all the names coming out today? 😉

US Weekly Reporting Lindsey Stirling Is Dancing In DWTS Season 25

Aww, remember when we were chatting about the possibility of Lindsey Stirling dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars? Well, our dreams are coming true. From US Weekly….

The new Dancing With the Stars cast includes two Lacheys — and now two Fishers!

Former NBA star Derek Fisher and actor-singer Jordan Fisher (who are not related) have signed on for season 25 of the ABC dance competition, Us Weekly confirms. Violinist Lindsey Stirling, former paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen and actor Frankie Muniz have also joined the cast, Us confirms.

More in detail at US Weekly.

PureDWTS Season 25 Cast Rumors: Did Bobby Brown Pull Out of DWTS?

If you believe US Weekly (and they’re usually pretty spot-on), then the answer is yes:

Bobby Brown had a change of heart. The singer was supposed to be a contestant on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars, but bowed out at the last minute, sources tell Us Weekly.

“Bobby Brown was originally slated to be on this new season of DWTS, but recently pulled out,” one source tells Us. “There were issues with his contract, and he couldn’t come to an agreement with ABC that it would be worth it to do the show.”

Sounds like somebody may have been holding out for mo’ money. Given that we’ve already spoiled the partners for the five female pros already confirmed for this season, I can only assume that Bobby was probably going to be the “surprise” 13th couple announced on Sept. 6, with Cheryl as his partner.  None of my sources had heard a peep about Cheryl’s partner – which makes sense, because it doesn’t sound like he was ever contractually locked down.

So this begs the question: will we still get 13 couples this season? And will Cheryl still get a partner? I’m thinking yes, because the show almost always has backup celebs in their back pocket – a good example is season 13’s Carson Kressley, who filled in at the last minute after Ryan O’Neal backed out. And honestly, given that Bobby is known for having a bit of a volatile personality, I’m not sure I would have wanted to see him this season – I’d rather see Cheryl with someone a bit more stable and willing to work.

Thoughts?
