Hi, I'm one of the three of Charlie's Angels at this site. Heehee. Not only am I a big music and dancing fan, I'm also a big lover of photography, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible camping with my hubby and our loving and patriotic doggie, Cash.

How about Natasha Bure For Dancing with the Stars Season 28??

How about Natasha Bure For Dancing with the Stars Season 28? I think this would be a cool idea especially if she were to be paired with Mark Ballas…

Candace Cameron Bure‘s daughter Natasha Bure is following in her mother’s footsteps into acting, but the 20-year-old hopes to mimic her mother in another way as well: She wants to go on “Dancing with the Stars.”

“I would love to do ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ I think it would be the coolest thing. I’m so competitive,” Natasha told “Entertainment Tonight” (watch below).

Let us know what you think in comments. For more, see Gold Derby. Thanks to Vin for the heads up.

Dancing With The Stars Season 28 To Officially Return In The Fall, Future Seasons In Talks

According to People, Dancing With The Stars will officially be back for a Fall Season. Here is a take from the link where ABC Entertainment president, Karey Burke, mentions it at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Tuesday….

During the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Tuesday, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke announced that the reality dance competition series will be returning for season 28.

“I can confirm that it will definitely be returning in the fall,” Burke told reporters.

Although DWTS has occasionally aired two seasons annually — spring and fall — PEOPLE confirmed in December that the long-running ABC show would be taking a hiatus and skipping a spring cycle like 2018’s Athletes mini-season.

That’s not all, according to Burke via TV Line, Dancing With The Stars could be back for a Spring season afterwards. Read on….

Newly-installed Alphabet entertainment president Karey Burke addressed the speculation Tuesday at the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour, declaring unequivocally that the show will “definitely be returning in the fall.” Regarding the decision to skip a spring cycle for the first time in franchise history, Burke deflected, “That decision was made before I got here.”

Having skipped this spring outright and aired an abbreviated all-athletes edition a year ago, could DWTS ever be a proper twice-a-year show again? “We’re in conversations about that,” Burke told TVLine. “They’re coming in soon to talk about their plans for the fall, and we’ll discuss it then.”

Be sure to read the links for more. It’s going to be interesting to see how this all plays out. The ratings for the Fall season will probably determine it’s future. Let us know what you think in comments.

Rupaul’s Drag Race Finalist Courtney Act to Compete on DWTS Australia

So last week, we talked about RPDR season 8 champ Bob the Drag Queen starting a campaign to get on DWTS.  In an interesting development, RPDR season 6 runner-up Courtney Act (aka Shane Jenek) was just announced as a contestant on DWTS Australia:

Drag artist Courtney Act is set to appear on Australia’s Dancing with the Stars with a male partner.

Act, whose real name is Shane Jenek, was the final contestant to be announced in the 11-strong line-up for the celebrity-studded dance competition.

The drag queen, who made her name name on RuPaul’s Drag Race, revealed the news on Twitter and jokingly referred to her costume mishap while entering Celebrity Big Brother in January 2018, which she went on to win.

Courtney posted her promo pic on IG, which I think is pretty cute 🙂

Worth mentioning: Courtney’s no stranger to reality TV – aside from RPDR and her aforementioned win on Celebrity Big Brother UK, she also competed on the inaugural season of Australian Idol and is set to compete in the Eurovision song contest later this month. Note that they’ve got her dancing with a male pro, and there seems to be very few people getting worked up about it – I think if she does well (and she probably will), we could see DWTS here in the States taking notice and perhaps more seriously entertaining the notion of casting a drag queen for season 28. At this point, my vote’s for Ginger Minj – she was just in Dumplin’ and Super Drags, she’s got a theater and singing background, and there’s currently a bit of a grassroots campaign to get her cast as Ursula in the upcoming live action version of The Little Mermaid. She’s also short, which should eliminate a lot of the trickiness of pairing her with a male pro to dance with. But in the grand scheme of things, I’m just glad to see drag queens in the mainstream 😉

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors & Watch Out: Bob the Drag Queen Wants to Be on DWTS (POLL)

I apologize for the tardiness of this post – I was in Denver when Zoe (@ptxdwts on Twitter) pointed this out to me, and Heidi & Vogue were each tending to family business. But I’ve finally gotten a spare moment and thought we could talk about this 🙂

Last Friday night, Rupaul’s Drag Race season 8 winner Bob the Drag Queen (real name: Christopher Caldwell) tweeted out this message:

Now I vaguely remember a few drag queens joking a bit in the past about wanting to do the show, but I feel like this is the first instance where one of them actually seems serious about it.  Bob’s got a point – with the success of RPDR in the last ten years, drag queens are becoming much more well-known in the mainstream, as opposed to being considered more of a subculture/niche celebrity. They’re starring in Oscar-nominated movies (Willam and Shangela were in A Star is Born), TV events (Valentina is set to play Angel in Rent: Live this Sunday), and Netflix original content (Ginger Minj was most recently in Dumplin’, while Alyssa Edwards’ reality show Dancing Queen follows her dance school in Texas, and many of the voices in the cartoon Super Drags are former RPDR queens). Drag queens are having a moment – so perhaps it’s time for DWTS to give one a shot.  I’ve said it already, but I think season 28 is going to be a make-it-or-break-it season for this show – I think they’ve got to somehow revamp it, while also hanging onto their core fanbase. I think attitudes have changed (and continue to change), and while I’m sure there would be some obnoxiously-vocal bigots threatening to boycott the show if a drag queen was on, I think it could be cancelled out by the influx of new viewers the show could potentially get from casting a queen as famous as Bob.

Potential caveats? I assume Bob would be competing in drag, which means she’d be dancing with a male pro – and Bob is easily 6’2″-6’3″.  That’s at least as tall as Keo, our current tallest male pro, and I assume Bob would also be wearing heels.  I think it’s safe to say lifts are probably out 😛 Other than that, I can’t see too many logistical barriers…what do you guys think? I know I say this a lot anymore, but I just want to see something I haven’t seen before…so I’m all about Bob on DWTS 😉 Be sure to vote in the poll below!

UCLA Gymnast Katelyn Ohashi For Dancing with the Stars??

Interesting. Apparently, Ryan Seacrest hooked up Katelyn Ohashi (UCLA gymnast superstar) with Deena Katz, the casting director for Dancing With The Stars. In the interview, they talk of making Katelyn’s dream of dancing come true. Ryan got chills at the thought and Derek Hough also weighs in. Thanks to Linz for the heads up!

Carrie Ann Inaba Mentions Dancing with the Stars In New Interview

As most of you know, Carrie Ann Inaba is now a co-host on The Talk. In a new News Channel 5 interview, she mentions how she plans to juggle doing both shows. More below….

However, the Hawaii native dished on how she plans to juggle the two shows when the time comes.

“Well, what’s great is DWTS isn’t coming back with a spring series, so we’re coming back in the fall. And for DWTS, I only go in in the afternoon of the show day because I just judge, I don’t have to prepare. I can just walk in with my makeup from The Talk and just continue my day,” Carrie revealed as she and Sara giggled about the great convenience.

I’m glad it will work out well for her. More below with News Channel 5 and at Closer Weekly on her great first week on The Talk.

Dancing with the Stars Christmas 2018 – Interview On New Season, Photos, And Flash Mobs

From John, Courtney, Heidi, and myself, thank you for all of your support this past year. You are the bomb and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas! And just a few things if you are needing to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. First, check out this new ET interview with Sharna. She hints at what’s to come for Dancing With The Stars in the future. Below is a quote, but, see the link for more. I love how she stresses that the show isn’t going anywhere….

“So, I don’t know if they are planning anything that might be a surprise in the summer,” she exclaimed. “Maybe there’s [another] Juniors. [But] I don’t have info, don’t quote me on it! it’s just a guess on my part.”

So, with more free time now, what do Burgess and her fellow dance pros have planned for 2019?

“We’re trying to figure out what we wanna do with that spring/summer time for us,” she explained, claiming there will still be a season 28 of the show. “We’re going to confirm that date.”

“This show is such a fan favorite,” she continued. “I mean, come on, it’s not going anywhere! We’re gonna do 30, 35, maybe 45 seasons! I’ll have babies and be married, retired by that point, but this is DWTS… it isn’t going anywhere.”

Also, this has nothing to do with Dancing With The Stars, but, people (including teachers, nurses, and the police) are dancing all across the nation and the world. Here are just a few that caught my eye….

PureDWTS Season 28 Cast Rumors & Watchout: James Hinchcliffe Thinks Fellow Indycar Driver Josef Newgarden Should Do DWTS

I’d categorize this one as “there’s a 50/50 chance between this being a complete joke and a legitimate possibility”, given the parties involved 😉

Hinch has said in multiple interviews since his time on DWTS that he’d “love to see Josef Newgarden do DWTS” – I believe he even mentioned it in a Facebook live with Sharna once, and Sharna was onboard with the idea.  Josef’s a fellow Indycar driver (a pretty successful one, too – he won the 2017 Indycar Series Championship), and is considered a sort of Indycar heartthrob – several of the drivers like to joke that he should be a Disney prince or in a boyband. He’s also a goofy guy and doesn’t seem to worry too much about “being cool”, so he’s uninhibited enough to give DWTS a shot, I think.

Well the other day Josef retweeted a gif of himself busting a move on the bricks at IMS (which was actually cropped from a YouTube video of him during the “Harlem Shake” dance craze five years ago), and this is how things went down:

Now while Josef might be kidding (or semi-kidding), I think Hinch is serious – and I think that Josef would actually be a wise casting move on ABC’s part. Charming, attractive, boyish young guy that doesn’t take himself too seriously and isn’t afraid to let loose and give himself over to the experience? That’s practically catnip to DWTS viewers these days (hello, Milo). And given that ABC has time to pin down the next cast (and reeeeallllly needs to focus on getting a quality cast to redeem themselves from the fiasco of season 27), I think they ought to look into Josef – Hinch ended up being wildly popular despite being a relative unknown headed into his season, and Josef is at least semi-well-known.

Thoughts?

Report On Old Pros Returning For Possible Last Dancing With The Stars Season, Who Would You Like To See Come Back?

US Magazine has an article up on the Fall Season of Dancing With The Stars. Supposedly, they talked to a “source” who mentions this could be the “last” season of Dancing With The Stars and if it is, they want to make it the greatest by bringing back “old pros”. This is music to my ears. I would love to see Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, and Mark Ballas return. I’d also love to see the return of Maks Chmerkovksiy, Peta Murgatroyd, and Edyta Śliwińska. How about you? Be sure to read more at US Magazine.

The ratings have not been what the network had hoped for, despite changing things up with an all-athletes season last spring and Dancing With the Stars: Juniors, which wrapped this month.

The source also added that there are talks of season 28, set to air in the fall, being the last. If that happens, the network is hoping to bring back multiple original pros, including Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, Mark Ballas and many more.

“They want to have a great last season if there is just one season left,” the source noted.
