Producers Having No Trouble Completing The Roster For Dancing With The Stars Season 24

Apparently, the producers of Dancing With The Stars asked Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama to dance this season. As to no surprise, they said “no”. However, according to US Weekly, they aren’t having trouble filling out the roster…..

Despite a few snubs, producers are having no trouble completing the roster, says the show source. (The full list will be revealed on Good Morning America March 1.) One name near the top of the list: reality star Nick Viall. The former track star, 36, “is dying” to be the fourth Bachelor to bust a move in front of millions, says the source, adding, “it’s looking likely he’ll be on.”

Producers are rounding out the group “with a couple of movie stars who are showing interest,” says the show source. “They’re just trying to put together a good cast.”

No matter who’s competing, professional dancers Maks Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are ready to go for mirrorball silver. The parents of 7-week-old son Shai admit in the new issue of Us Weekly that they share a healthy rivalry.

While Murgatroyd, 30, who nabbed her second trophy with model Nyle DiMarco last May, tells Us, “I want to defend my title,” her husband-to-be, 37, might stand in her way. “This season is special because of Peta coming back,” he says. “I just want to support her and at the same time, maybe have some healthy competition in the family.”

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . To view my photography site, see Lisa Kay Photography.

DWTS Season 14 – Oh Come On, That’s Not Gonna Happen! Chapter 2

The second chapter in what will likely be a very long book. 🙂 In case you missed chapter 1, this is a series where I talk about what I see on Twitter that makes me roll my eyes in exasperation or laugh…or just groan in disbelief. 🙂

Today’s edition of OCOTNGH (heh) revolves around the inability of many Twitter users to READ and comprehend the written word. Seriously, this edition scares me. Let’s do it in list form, shall we??

1) Michelle Obama is NOT going to be on DWTS, partnered with Maks. If you read that on the internet, you need to look up some of the words in the article – mainly the word “Spoof”. If someone you know and/or love told you that she was going to be on DWTS, buy them a dictionary. If you believed them…what the hell is wrong with you?? 🙂 Here is the source of this particular bit of silliness —-> Michelle Obama on DWTS

Some of you are probably thinking, “Heidi is full of crap, no one REALLY believed that story.” How much would you like to bet? Any Mitt Romneys out there willing to part with 10K?? 😀

2) When someone who happens to be an actor/former co-worker (Brent Spiner) of Marina Sirtis urges people (via his twitter account) to “vote for Marina Sirtis to be on DWTS” he is NOT saying “Marina Sirtis is going to be on Season 14 of DWTS”. Come on. Go look at his twitter time line and you will clearly see that he’s campaigning just like all her other fans. Geez, people. I’m looking for real rumors – not people who can’t read chattering false info across the internet.

3) Get a sense of humor and/or actually WATCH the video where Derek says one of his partners had him crying every night. Geez, that was Derek being goofy. Hardly headline news. :::rolls eyes:::

4) Erin Andrews showing up at Maks’ birthday party doesn’t mean she’s “the one” and madly in love with him.  Kirstie, Tony, and Chelsie were there too, just sayin’. Are they all in love with him? Shippers. They’re enough to make a person nuts. Especially when the Erin shippers and Kirstie shippers fight. Oh wait, that’s actually kinda fun… 🙂

5) To those complaining on Twitter that GSN is airing DWTS which “isn’t a game show!” – get a dictionary. From Websters (and really, this should be obvious to most), one of the definitions of “game”:  a physical or mental competition conducted according to rules with the participants in direct opposition to each other. Duh.  Synonyms of “game” include: bout, competition, contest, event, match, matchup, meet, sweepstakes (also sweep-stake),tournament, tourney.  Anyway you look at it DWTS does belong on the Game Show Network. It is either a dance competition or a popularity contest…or both. Note both in the synonyms.  🙂  Just because some dude in polyester pants doesn’t have the chance to win a million bucks doesn’t mean it’s NOT a game.

6) Saying that Giulianna Rancic has been approached to be on DWTS is NOT the same thing as “Giulianna is going to be on DWTS”.  Can you tell this annoys me? 🙂

I sense number 6 will be a recurring theme right up to the moment that they announce the cast for Season 14. :::sigh:::  Either the internet is like a massive game of Telephone…or people don’t read well. Or some mixture of both.

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. :-)
