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? 😉

DWTS Kym Johnson Herjavec Interviewed On Her New Fitness Studio, Richard Simmons, And More

Recently, Dancing With The Stars Kym Johnson started her own Fitness studio in Richard Simmons’ former iconic Beverly Hills fitness studio. Below is more from US Weekly….

Sweatin’ to the Oldies no more! Richard Simmons closed the doors of his iconic Beverly Hills fitness studio, Slimmons, after 42 years this past November, but a new tenant is moving in — and you just might recognize her from TV. Dancing With the Stars pro Kym Herjavec (formerly Kym Johnson, the dancer wed season 20 dance partner, Robert Herjavec, in summer 2016) is taking over the space formerly occupied by Simmons and starting her own fitness empire, starting with a studio called The BOD.

Herjavec, 40, who will dance with another ’80s television icon, Mr. T, in the show’s upcoming 24th season, says she first visited Slimmons “years ago” when she brought her mom, who was visiting from Australia, to take one of the fitness guru’s aerobics classes. “His energy [in the class] was just so infectious,” Herjavec tells Us Weekly. “He just radiated positivity.”

Following in Simmons’ high-energy footsteps, Herjavec says that The BOD will offer “really fun” fitness classes including a barre class taught by a former Rockette, a Broadway fitness class where participants will learn routines set to show tunes and dance workout classes that she’ll teach herself. In another nod to the studio’s former tenant, Herjavec will also lead a weekly class set exclusively to ’80s pop music. The dancer explains that she wants to make exercise fun again. “I designed the classes so they target muscles in your arms and legs — and it’s definitely a workout, you will see results, but it’s a great mixture of cardio that instead of just running on a treadmill for 30 minutes, you’re getting it in by dancing.”

Citing Simmons as a “huge inspiration,” Herjavec says, “I want to continue doing the same thing he did. I’ve got a great group of people already on board who are passionate about fitness and health and being positive and really kind, nice people. I wanted to create a group of instructors and trainers who are kind and caring as well. It’s about being able to come to a place where you feel safe and you feel good about yourself being there.”

Kym Johnson Hangs Up Her Dancing Shoes, But, Hopes To Be On DWTS All Access

Kym Johnson tells ET Online she won’t be dancing on Dancing With The Stars. However, we might see her on DWTS All Access. Below is more including thoughts from Robert who would love to dance again on the show. So cute…

Herjavec, where she said she isn’t returning to the hit ABC show.

“I love the show and I love to still be part of it but, you know, I still want to hang up my dance shoes and what a way to end,” Johnson told ET when asked if she’s appearing on the new season. “It’s like, ‘thank you, Dancing With the Stars.”

However, the fan favorite – who’s also a judge on the Australian version of the show — said she still might be appearing on the DWTS: All Access online show. Johnson started appearing on the DWTS in 2006, and has won the coveted mirror ball trophy twice — in season 9 with Donny Osmond, and season 12 with NFL pro Hines Ward. She sat out season 10 and took a break after season 16, making a return four seasons later, when she was partnered with Herjavec.

Hilariously, it’s actually 53-year-old Herjavec who’s eager to get back into the ballroom. The businessman was paired with Johnson for season 20 — when sparks obviously flew between the two. They ended up finishing in sixth place.

“I am going to go back and dance with somebody else so I can win the mirror ball this time,” he joked about being “distracted.” “I blame you Kym. Yeah, if you weren’t there I would of won.”

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. :-)
