Dancing with the Stars Season 28 – PRO WATCH!!!

Well, ladies and gentlemen, here we are again.  I’ve gotten to be a pretty lazy blogger, thanks to this little hiatus we just suffered through. Actually, I didn’t suffer at all, I just like being dramatic sometimes. 😉

Did anyone else notice the wording of the tweet that Courtney posted yesterday about the cast announcement??  “Season 28 of DancingABC is here and we’re revealing all the new stars and the new cast live on GMA next Wednesday.” All new stars AND a new cast?? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Now, granted, Courtney and I did spend half an hour texting last night debating whether the GMA tweeter is just an idiot (probably) or if there is something more nefarious about (who the hell knows?).  But why else do you tweet about new stars AND a new cast?? What the actual f@#k?

Okay, now that I’ve scared the bejesus out of 50% of our audience, let’s talk about who’s not likely to be back – maybe ever. In any capacity. Julianne Hough, for one. She’s now loyal to NBC and on AGT a couple nights a week. Derek?? Has a producing deal with NBC and says with a great deal of certainty (while literally standing 4 feet from me – and I was sitting. Imagine that. 🙂 ) that he will be back on World of Dance in 2020. He might be back for the last season of DWTS…but I wouldn’t hold my breath. I only say these things because invariably I see people in the comments and on twitter putting him in their pro wish list or predictions. Just stop already. I will be STUNNED if he appears on DWTS this or any other season. I do think that Hannah and Derek would make a beautiful dancing pair – oh yes. But even if he were back I don’t think we would see it. Ah well. Maks?? No idea and he’s not that great of a source on his own stuff – he tends to change his mind and/or use his leverage. But I believe he’s indicated that he won’t be back. Mark? VERY doubtful. Why would he? And then there’s the rest….We don’t know a lot yet, because I don’t think they know a lot yet. Read more..

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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 27 – PRO WATCH!!!

After what seems like FOREVER since we’ve had a true, full-length season (not sure about you, but All-Athletes barely felt like a blip on our radar, and Juniors doesn’t quite feel real yet since it’s not airing until October), the fall pre-season is finally upon us 🙂

First, time to do a bit of “pro roll call”: Lindsay, Witney, Emma, Jenna, Cheryl, Hayley, Artem, Gleb, Keo, Sasha, Alan, & Brandon are all serving as mentors on DWTS Junior, which tends to increase their odds of being pros on the fall season, from where I sit (since there’s going to be a good deal of cross-promotion between DWTS/DWTS Jr.); Val is now a judge on DWTS Junior, which makes me wonder if his days as a regular pro are over; Sharna was curiously absent from the list of pros involved in Juniors, and seems to have thrown herself headlong into other ventures, which for me puts her role as a pro in question; and we haven’t really seen Peta or Maks involved in DWTS since their fairly unremarkable run as pros last fall. Keep in mind – fall season typically has (13) couples, and with this fall season being only nine weeks long (as opposed to the standard 10 or 11 weeks) due to the Primetime Emmy’s on Sept. 17, we may end up seeing fewer couples than that. If you are one of the ones hoping to see Hayley and/or Brandon get a shot at being a pro, just know that it means one of the older pros (perhaps Peta, Sharna, Val, or Maks) has to sit this one out. There is not an unlimited number of pro spots, unfortunately.

As for the “old guard” – pros from the days of yore that may or may not pop in for season-long encore run – with the exception of Cheryl, I don’t think we’ll being seeing the return of any alums. Derek is a hard “no”, due to his involvement with World of Dance; and with Mark’s new Broadway gig (and the fact that he seemed pretty done with DWTS when asked about it recently) I doubt we see him back, either. Kym, Edyta, & Anna all have young kids; and  Lacey, like Mark, seems to be pretty done with DWTS, too. Karina and Tony seem to be keeping busy with judging and other events, but might be willing to return if asked – I just don’t see them getting asked, unfortunately. It’s now been two years since we last saw Allison as a pro, so barring extraordinary circumstances, I’d say she’s out; and unless someone (foolishly) requests Louis as a partner, I think he’ll have plenty of time to bitterly shade the current pros on Twitter 😉

So where does that leave us? I will say I’d be genuinely SHOCKED if Lindsay, Witney, Emma, Jenna, Cheryl, Artem, Gleb, Keo, & Alan didn’t get pro spots; I think Sasha is probably going to get a spot, but there always seems to be that degree of uncertainty due to his height (which is dumb, since he is the same height as Mark, and they always managed to find partners for Mark).  I think the remaining 2-3 spots (depending on the number of couples this fall, and how many female/male celebs they get) could go to any combination of Hayley, Sharna, Peta, Val, Maks, and Brandon, depending on whether the Chmerkovskiy faction and/or Sharna opts to return as pros or not.

As of right now (11-Aug, 7ish PM EST) we don’t have a date for the pro announcement or cast announcement, but source seems to think that the cast announcement for Juniors will occur around the same time as the one for the regular season…perhaps one massive GMA event???

UPDATE, 8/28, 9:11 AM EST: So apparently GMA is announcing the pros today, without much previous fanfare.  Big deal being made about Jenna & Val’s engagement, so I guess we know who’s gonna be the ones getting promoted this season. On a happier note – looks like Brandon is getting a shot as a pro after a really strong showing as a mentor on DWTS Junior. Cheryl’s also back, which makes me think Hayley’s chances at a pro spot just got slimmer. Only 8 pros have been announced so far…

Update 2: Full list posted at No big surprises here – but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious to see how Val’s stint as a Juniors judge changes the dynamic between he and the other pros on the regular season. I’d say this is more than likely the full list – we’ve got our 13 pros.  So I better not hear any “but maybe there’s a surprise 14th couple!!!” chatter…

Update #3, 8/30/18, 3:54 PM EST: So let’s talk troupe.  Source is fairly certain that all three girls will be back – makes sense, since Hayley served as a Juniors mentor over the summer, and Morgan was working a lot with the Junior troupe. It also looks like Artur will be back, as he was looking on Facebook for an apartment to sublet in LA as of last Friday 😛 It looks like there’s going to be at least (1) new guy, though…any guesses on who?

Dancing With The Stars Wants Julianne Hough Back, Changes Next Season

Hey All! Be sure to read Cathy’s fan blog over at Pure Derek Hough. At a Question and Answer session at the “Move Live On Tour” Broadway show, Derek Hough mentions how Dancing With The Stars wants Julianne back for next season. There will also “be changes”. Derek also mentioned that he didn’t know if he’d be back.

Then he went on to say that they want Julianne back, there will be changes next season, and that he doesn’t know yet.

This would be so cool. I hope they can get Julianne (as well as Derek) back to dance as she is on fire in this tour to say the least according to all our reports. She’d be a great judge again too. Though note that Julianne has also mentioned going back to making movies when the tour ends. So, it’s anyone’s guess for what could happen?

More at Pure Derek Hough including other fun blogs, new interviews, and more.

TV Columnist Asked If Chelsie Hightower Will Be Returning To Dancing With The Stars As A Regular Pro

Columnist Matt Webb Mitovich of TV Line was recently asked by a fan if he knew if pro Chelsie Hightower would be returning as a pro on Dancing With The Stars Season 17. Below you can read how he replied. Note how Matt really isn’t telling us anything new being many of the pros are under contract and anything can happen in leaving them on or off of the show (such as what happened with Chelsie, Anna, and Maks last season), but, it generates a little excitement reading over this and speculating never the less.

If anyone can find the answer to this question, I’m sure it is you, Matt: Is there any chance that we will see Chelsie Hightower return as a pro on Dancing With the Stars? –Lindsey

I perhaps have not watched an episode of DWTS since Kelly Monaco’s Season 1, but I’m game to take this one on. I am told that since Chelsie is still under contract with the ABC series (and last season popped up in some of the “pro dances”), there is at least the possibility she will be part of the Season 17 cast — though we won’t know for sure until late August.

What do you think and while we’re on the subject, what partner did you enjoy Chelsie dancing with the most?

I liked Chelsie dancing with Roshon Fegan the most!! Just as long as Sharna and Karina are dancing, I’ll be happy for whoever else is picked to dance including Chelsie. One more thing: I’d rather see Chelsie dance versus Cheryl ANY DAY.
