DWTS Kirstie Alley On A “Convoy” Mission To Help Hurricane Victims, Interviews, And More

As some of you have commented and have noticed yesterday at twitter, Dancing With The Stars contender Kirstie Alley, went full out trying to get as many items as she could to help those who are suffering from the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the east coast. She’s asked that people bring whatever they can from blankets, socks, underwear, snack foods, canned goods, baby food, teddy bears, and more down to her Organic Liaison store at 1864 N Vermont in Los Feliz, California 90027. The mission has been such a success that she tweeted the first semi load of supplies left Friday and will reach New Jersey today (Saturday) sometime. A second truck is planned to reach Staten Island, New York on Wednesday! John and Kelly Travolta along with Dancing With The Stars partner Maks Chmerkovskiy took part in the relief mission as well according to this tweet by Kirstie….

Tony Dovolani helped too as you can see in the picture above provided above by @DDubsDame at twitter. As Kirstie tweeted, “people are amazing!!!!! never under estimate what just a few people can achieve!!! it’s awesome” and isn’t that the truth?!!

In other things Kirstie Alley, she was interviewed on 20/20. It was scheduled to air last night on ABC. However, due to a hurricane special, I’m not sure they featured her interview? Can anyone confirm? You can read for a little of what took place with the interview at On The Red Carpet. She promotes her new book, “The Art Of Men”. Another topic Kirstie talked about was how John Travolta was the “love of her life”. Here she is in a teaser at E News….

Also, stay tuned as Kirstie is scheduled to be on the Jimmy Kimmell show this upcoming Thursday night!!

ETA1: According to fan @cherylldob at twitter, the 20/20 interview with Kirstie will air next Friday, November 9th. Thanks Cheryl!! 😉

ETA2: Below is a new interview with Maks that took place last week with On The Red Carpet. He talks of how Dancing With The Stars has stepped up their game this season. He got a note from TPTB for how well he and Kirstie are doing and putting smiles on faces. He loved their Gangnam style dance too. More below. There is more to this interview in more video segments HERE. Note too how Maks will be making a “Latin dancer” movie in MAY! Read more..

Hi, I'm a news hounds from way back. Since 1999, I've worked on Madonna and Enrique Iglesias fan sites....and now PureDWTS. I have always been a big music and dancing fan, but, I'm also passionate about photography, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible travelling and camping with my hubby and our loving and patriotic doggie, Cash.

DWTS Season 13 – Rumor Roundup Part 1!!

Okay, as I joked the other day, the tabloid wars are getting out of hand, with one outlet with a great track record (TMZ) is setting up rumors while other outlets, some reputable and some with no track record on DWTS rumors, shooting them down.  It’s crazy, it’s wild….it’s a helluva lot of fun. 🙂 But…it’s hard to keep track of also! Who was rumored, who was shot down, who out and out denied they were doing the show?? Well, that’s why I’m writing this post – to try and make sense of it all and make a list of where we stand now. I don’t know about most of our readers, but this is actually one of my favorite parts of DWTS – trying to figure out who’s going to do the show before…they actually do the show. 🙂

My guess is that Chynna, Christina, Rob and Kristin…and maybe Jenni…will turn out to be true. We’ll see!!

Note: Vogue is reading this before it’s posted…but that doesn’t mean it will be perfect. If we left someone off – please tell us and we’ll update accordingly. DO NOT tell me about people who are campaigning or who want to be on the show – this is for actual rumors. I’m putting a list of wannabes at the bottom – but they are not the same as “rumored to be in talks” or “rumored to be doing the show.”

Chynna PhillipsPerez Hilton reported this yesterday, but it was originally mentioned that she was in talks quite some time ago by us, via The Insider.

Christina Milian – First reported by US Weekly back in July, along with Rob Kardashian, Christina seems fairly solid. Only because Hollywood life (and as recently as August 12)and others are saying she’s in, and no one’s managed to shoot them down yet.  She also had an interesting reaction to a question about DWTS, as we mentioned earlier.

Rob Kardashian – Another potential dancer who is being mentioned by many of the outlets and hasn’t been shot down yet. Along with Christina, he was originally mentioned by US Weekly in July. He addressed the rumors in an interesting non-denial similar to that of Kate Gosselin.

Kristin CavallariAccess Hollywood reported this one and no one has shot it down yet, to the best of my knowledge.

Ron Artest – Originally said to be in talks by TMZ, Ron has since said he will not be on this season.

Snooki – First she was, then she wasn’t, then she was open to it…who the hell knows?

Leila Arcieri – gave a rather vague answer when asked about DWTS.

Queen Latifa – Originally rumored by TMZ, this one was shot down by her reps.

Tommy Lee – was apparently asked and apparently said “hell no“.

Rosanne Barr – was apparently asked and would like to, but she needs body parts replace first. 🙂

Tiffany Thiessen – First, she said no, but then other outlets, such as TMZ and Hollywood Life as of August 12, are still claiming she is dancing, even though Tiffany herself shot down the original rumors. As recently as yesterday, Perez claims she’s dancing.

Jenni Rivera – This rumor is purely twitter driven…but not impossible. 🙂

Matthew Finley – first reported back in June, we haven’t heard his name mentioned very much lately.

Ashley HebertHollywood Life reported that Ashley was “in negotiations” with DWTS back in June while the Bachelorette was still airing, but we haven’t heard much on that lately. The silence is rather deafening. DWTS has a bit of a track record with that franchise, as you may recall. I would not be surprised if they keep the incestuous relationship going.

Evelyn Lozada – Chad Ochocinco claimed to TMZ that Evelyn was “in talks” to do the show.  Then, we reported on a Tweet from Evelyn that sort of implied she was doing the show.

Chaz Bono – I kinda doubt this one, mainly because Extra had a story on it and then pulled it, as we reported a while back.

Bobby Flay – This is another rumor that’s only been mentioned once.  This is one busy guy, so…

Kelly Preston – I never put much stock in this one, but you never know!! Showbiz Spy claimed back in April that she had “auditioned” for the show – which is the first clue they don’t know what they’re talking about. I’ve never heard of anyone having to audition before. In any case, it’s not impossible, as Kelly isn’t that far removed from a Kirstie Alley or Jennifer Grey.

Melissa Gilbert – Melissa’s name has been on many a fan wishlist, but no real rumors until this past May when The National Enquirer brought it up and we repeated it. 🙂 And, interestingly, Melissa tweeted a link to our post! That was nice.  She said no in a weird kinda way as well, which makes me inclined to leave her on the “possible” list.

Sherri Shephard – This lady has wanted to do the show for a long time and appears to have a crush on Maks, but something (or someone) seems to be preventing her from doing the show. Back in June, she was tweeting about the show, and she’s talked about it alot on the View. Wendy Williams claimed she was in talks to do the show in July.   I wonder if their producers won’t let her out to do DWTS.  Seems like we’ve talked about her a lot here. Last word was on August 1, where she supposedly turned an offer down.

Davy Jones – Davy was supposedly asked and “supposedly” turned the offer down. His “no” was rather confusing. 🙂

Hulk HoganHollywood Life takes him out of the running before he was even IN the running.

Candice Cameron Bure – There’s something funny going on here. 🙂 Waaay back in February, we reported that the New York Post was saying Candice was rumored to be participating. She subsequently shot that rumor down via Twitter on February 16, saying she hadn’t been asked. However, since then her name has come up again because of an interesting tweet (again).  She was tweeting Erin Andrews and had asked about Evan Lysacek.  Again, she KIND OF denied it, but in a very strange way. In a way that makes some of us (Evaine, me, Vogue) think perhaps there is more to the story. Evaine is hoping this is about Candice’s husband Valeri Bure, retired hockey player. I guess we’ll see. 🙂

Shawn Marion – He’s afraid that there won’t be an NBA lock out and DWTS would interfere with his season, per a couple previous stories we posted about him.

Bridgit Mendler – a fan site claimed they had been told she was doing the show, but her rep has since denied it.

Alex Morgan – A member of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team, Alex mentioned in an interview that she had a show she would be working on for a couple months that she couldn’t talk about. We thought maybe it was DWTS, but twitter chatter says she said it was a cameo. Well, Cameo roles don’t take “a couple months” as far as I know. 🙂

Dina Lohan – I dunno if this is a rumor or more like a wannabe on steroids.  In any case we haven’t heard much about her lately.

The WANNABE Dancers – I could not possibly do a complete list of wannabes, but here are a few who’ve really made it known

Hope Solo – this is more like MAKS wannabe dancer and wishful thinking. But hey, something got him to change his mind, maybe it was Hope?

Theresa Guidice – She’s been trying very hard to get on the show, but they apparently said “NO“. 🙂

Shaquille O’Neal – Pretty sure this one was an assumption by the original source and not a real rumor.

Regis Philbin – remember, Regis said he’d been asked to do the show, but only if he could dance with Derek. 🙂

Jodie Sweetin – we mentioned her way back in Februrary because she had mentioned wanting to do the show. Plus, she likes Derek but started following Maks, so we thought maybe she knew something. Well, she didn’t dance on Season 12 (neither did Derek) so I thought I would include her here. Old rumors often come back to life around here, you know. 🙂  Of course, this is more campaign than rumor, but there you go.

Lee Merriwhether, Mackenzie Westmore, Maci Bookout and Dee Wallace

Ellen K – Ryan Seacrest’s pal, and she certainly has more of an “in” with the show than others, but still this one is wishful thinking. We think. 🙂

Sig Hansen – this guy has been rumored for, like, 2 years now so I’ve downgraded him to a wishful thinker. 🙂

Randy Jones, Michael E. Knight, Jason Alexander and Colleen Zenk

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Cast 13 Rumor Talk About Chynna Phillips, Leila Arcieri, Tommy Lee, And Kelly Preston

Today, is reporting Tommy Lee was approached by Dancing With The Stars to dance this upcoming Season. As you know, Tommy is the founding member of hard metal band Mötley Crüe and once married to model, actress, and former Dancing With The Stars contender Pamela Anderson. Below is how Tommy Lee reacted to the offer at twitter and rather quickly.;

So, I guess that would be a “no”! LOL

Rumors have surfaced again about Kelly Preston or is this just a recycled rumor? InTouch Weekly via an inside source is reporting Kelly Preston as wanting to dance on the show and a possible “shoo-in”. As readers to the site know, we’ve reported on this possibility several times. I tend not to believe it since she’s currently filming Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father with her husband John Travolta. But, hey, you never know? Maybe her part will be wrapped up by September?

Kelly Preston has been cheering on pal and fellow Scientologist Kirstie Alley from the sidelines on Dancing With the Stars, but it seems the new mom wants to get out of the audience and onto the stage!

According to an insider, Kelly sees what the show has done for Kirstie’s body and her popularity, so she was open when producers talked to her about joining the cast next season. “Kelly has auditioned and she is a shoo-in,” the insider says. “If she wants on the show, there’s a good chance it could happen.”

Also, I’ve noticed some twitter chat via The Insider saying Chynna Phillips might be in talks to dance on Dancing With The Stars. I’ve checked The Insider site for more information. There’s been nothing reported so far that I can find, but, be sure to watch The Insider tonight as they are going to talk about who’s in and who’s out for Dancing With The Stars 13. Maybe Chynna will be mentioned at that time? I like Chynna and I could see a pairing with Maks or Tony…or maybe even Derek? What do you think? FYI, Chynna is married to William Baldwin and is the daughter of The Mamas & the Papas’ band members John and Michelle Phillips and the half-sister of actress Mackenzie Phillips.

Lastly, how about former ‘Miss San Francisco’ and actress Leila Arcieri? Below is a take from Contact Music on this possibility. Be sure to watch a video at the link as well which makes you really wonder if this rumor isn’t a a strong one?

Leila Arcieri, the American actress and former ‘Miss San Francisco’, leaving Boa’s Steakhouse in West Hollywood, California. Wearing a sleek black dress with matching belt, Arcieri posed for photographers before answering questions concerning her upcoming projects.

Responding to rumours she will star in the upcoming series of ‘Dancing with the Stars’, the ‘Daddy Day Care’ actress said, “Well, there’s a couple of things I’m not talking about yet.Would I?…it would be funny, but sure”.

I like the thought of Leila being on the show. She’d be perfect. I hope this rumor is true! What do you think? We look forward to your thoughts as always. 😉
