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? 😉

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?

PureDWTS Season 25 – ET Reporting Cheryl Burke Is Back As A Pro

Well it looks like most of you guessed correctly – ET is reporting that Cheryl is indeed back as a pro this season:

Looks like Cheryl Burke is making her way back into the ballroom after all!

A source tells ET that the 33-year-old dancer will return as a pro for season 25 of Dancing With the Stars.

“She’s really excited to return to her roots,” the source says. “She doesn’t want to let anyone down, so you can expect she will be bringing her A-game every night!”

They go on to detail how her Love On The Floor tour got pushed back to 2018, and how returning to DWTS was a “no-brainer”. Given that she wasn’t announced as a pro on GMA today, it’s safe to say she is likely the 13th “surprise pro” that will be announced during the cast announcement on Sept. 6.  For those holding out for a Sasha/Jenna/Allison surprise return – sorry, but maybe next year.
I’m glad both she & Mark will be back – I tend to find that it keeps the newer, more headstrong pros in check a bit better when they have to deal with some OG MBT winners 🙂

PureDWTS Season 24 – Jenna Johnson Taking a Season Off

Jenna fans asking if she’s gonna be in the troupe, I think you just got your answer:


Given that things on the pro front seem really, really strange this season, I don’t really know whether this was really her choice or is coming from someone higher up.  She seems upbeat, though, so I wish her the best and hope she gets what she needs out of her break.

Singer Ashlee Simpson Declines Offer To Do Dancing With The Stars Season 24

US Weekly is reporting on the current rumors for Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Among those we already know about, note how singer-actress Ashlee Simpson (Jessica’s sister) said “no” to dancing this season. Sad…I would have liked her to dance. Maybe she will do so in another season?

Sources previously confirmed to Us that other cast members on the latest edition of ABC’s venerable competition series will include figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, The A-Team star Mr. T, gymnast Simone Biles and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Erika Girardi. Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Ashlee Simpson politely declined offers to show off their fancy footwork.

PureDWTS Season 24 Rumor Round-Up

The next 48 hours leading up to the cast announcement are likely to be pretty hectic, so I thought I better get this posted sooner rather than later.  Here’s the list of all the cast rumors we’ve heard/reported on for season 24 – as always, they’re divided into categories.  Legitimate possibilities are rumors that we think have some validity, based on who is reporting them; long shots are rumors from a source that we don’t necessarily trust, but it’s possible they could be valid; pure randomness is general observations/weird stuff we’ve noticed that may or may not indicate anything, but is interesting nonetheless; wannabes/campaigners are celebs that have expressed interest in doing the show, but we have no reason to believe they’ve actually been asked to do the show; and the definite “no’s” are celebs that have specifically said they won’t do the show.

If anything new crops up between now & the announcement, I’ll do my best to update…but no guarantees.  Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday, and I’ve got hella king cakes to get ready 😎

Legitimate possibilities:

Normani Kordei
Simone Biles
Mr. T
Chris Kattan
Erika Jayne
Nancy Kerrigan
Nick Viall
