Dancing with the Stars is coming back for the 17th season.. and we maybe know the potential contestants.
There are a few interesting names floating around, like skinny mama Snooki. Most stars end up dancing off a ton of weight and that’s a bonus to being on the show.. but does Snooki even have any more to lose? She should have done the show back when she was 40 pounds heavier.
Other interesting potentials are Elizabeth Berkley, better known as Jessie from Saved by the Bell or that stripper from Showgirls, Leah Remini, whose life is in danger thanks to publicly denouncing Scientology, Amber Riley from Glee, singer Christina Milian….
Jack Osbourne, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, John Stamos (Uncle Jesse!!!), and Bella Thorne from the Disney show Shake It Up are other stars that are rumored to maybe join the show.
But here is the most interesting rumor- Sources say that 74-year old Valerie Harper from The Mary Tyler Moore Show will be on Dancing with the Stars.
The reason she is such an intriguing choice is because she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and the doctors only gave her three months to live back in March. Obviously, she’s outlived that already but is it really in her best interest to be on such a physically demanding show?
TMZ is reporting that she’s paired up with Tristan MacManus and they have been practicing for two weeks. A source said that she is “surprisingly good,” and “doesn’t need any special assistance, at least so far.”
Paula Deen needs to get back in America’s good graces. She lost a lot ever since being named in a lawsuit for frequently using racial slurs and making some bad judgment calls, like allegedly asking an employee to dress up like Aunt Jemima.
But she’s not willing to dance back in everyone’s heart. She turned down an offer to appear on Dancing with the Stars. Even though the show has helped reignite people’s career in the past, Paula refuses to join the show because she feels like “the dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her.”
And, according to In Touch magazine, Jennifer Lopez is only returning to American Idol because she was rejected by her first choice, The Voice. She wanted to go to the show with the higher ratings- can’t really blame her for that- but The Voice wasn’t interested in her so she worked a deal to return to Idol for a $15mil plus bonuses payday.
That’s the same tactic that everyone woman has used, trying to get back at the ex (Idol) after getting dumped, but it blew it up when she got rejected! I would say ouch but that $15mil prob takes the sting out of it.
And last but not least, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are getting their own reality show! It will be a six-episode series on VH1 called LeAnn and Eddie that will air either later this year or early next year.
Betcha that’s gonna hurt bitter ex-wife Brandi Glanville’s ego… or just give her more to complain about on whatever Housewives show she is on!
Ryan Lochte’s sort of a big deal. He turned down a few shows before settling for his own reality show. He said that he turned down Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelor because he just wanted to do things his way by starring in his own reality show, one that’s going to get him as famous as his idol, Kim Kardashian!
And Ryan knows that people are making fun of him but he’s just chalking that up to haters. He said, “The more known you get in the public eye, the more haters you’re gonna have and that’s a given. But, you know what? All the haters, all the name calling goes through one ear [and] out the other and I don’t mind it. The way I look at it, the more haters I have, it means I’m doing something right.”
His new show ‘What Would Ryan Lochte Do?’ premiered on Sunday with less than impressive numbers. The Kardashians tell-all special aired right before the big debut and drew in 1.5 million viewers but Ryan’s show only got 807k viewers.
I’m sure that stings E!’s pride. Not everyone can be a Kardashian but nice try, Ryan Seacrest. But hey, there’s still a chance for that married Jonas kid… I think.
We can safely say that Selena Gomez is over the troublemaking Justin Bieber. After she met Brad Pitt at the MTV Movie Awards, the gorgeous 20-year-old told Ellen DeGeneres that she was scared after she found out Brad was in the audience watching her. I mean who wouldn’t The man is a GOD! I mean I would totally hide under a table if I was to meet him… and that’s exactly what Selena did!
“Yea, so I was in my dressing room and I had just finished performing. They knocked on my door and they said that Brad Pitt would like to come in and I was like, ‘He can come in.’ I was trying to play cool and be really nice. As soon as he walked out I ran and I hide under the craft service table for like two minutes because I couldn’t believe it was happening.”
Aw how cute! Pitt made Gomez nervous. She even told DeGeneres, “He’s so pretty…”
When DeGeneres asked how she was doing and if she was happy post-Justin Bieber split, she replied, “I am. I met Brad Pitt. I’m great.”
Well, glad she moved on from that awful influence Justin Bieber!
In addition to her interview with Ellen, she also performed her new hit single “Come and Get It” on Dancing with the Stars that was less than stellar. After her MTV Movie Award performance, Gomez received a lot of heat for not having the best vocals, but that didn’t stop her from performing it again. This time she lip-synced the performance…not really making it any better, but it was at least better than her performance at the MTV Movie Awards.
Even if she has great music, maybe she should just stick to acting…or just not performing her songs live.
Bachelor beefcake Sean Lowe might be new to the Dancing with the Stars cast but he’s not new to being on TV. He’s done this before and he knows how to look his best while the cameras are rolling.
Sean has turned into a huge diva on the DWTS. He supposedly pulled a Mariah Carey and asked to be shot from certain angles, acts disrespectful to crew members, and allegedly said, “This show needs me.”
If he’s this demanding on a dancing competition show, imagine what kind of TV hogging groomzilla he will be on his wedding day.
