Although the producers have to use a few reality fillers, like Kim K’s younger brother Rob Kardashian, TMZ is reporting that some actual celebrities will be competing in the upcoming season. Rapper, actress, and make-up spokesmodel Queen Latifah will be joining the growing cast, as well as Blue Collar’s
Kelly Kapowski Tiffani Thiessen. Thiessen’s rep is, of course, denying this rumor…but isn’t that what they all do?
Also confirmed for the new season and a chance at the disco ball trophy is everyone’s favorite Oompa loompa, Snooki from Jersey Shore. Her rep as well had previously said the pickle lover would be a no-go. No word yet on whether she’ll be dancing in her furry Chewbacca boots or beaten up bunny slippers.
THOUGHTS ON THE CAST SO FAR? WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON NEXT SEASON’S DWTS?
UPDATE - According to a new report by UsWeekly, Queen Latifah is NOT signed on to do the show. A rep for the actress states she is not doing the show while an insider adds that “there were never any talks” between the network and Queen Latifah. Yikes. Did TMZ get it wrong? Only time will tell.
