Dancing with the Stars season 24

ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 24 stars this morning on Good Morning America. As expected, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi will be competing.

Erika‘s been paired with pro dancer Gleb Savchenko, who previously danced with Erika’s co-star Lisa Vanderpump. Let’s hope Erika fares better than Lisa. Lisa and Gleb were the second couple eliminated based on votes and scores in Season 16 (but the third to go home after Dorothy Hamill withdrew).

Who is Erika‘s competition? Well, she has her work cut out for her, as she’s up against gymnast Simone Biles, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei, Glee (um, hello, dancing!) star Heather Morris, and figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Just to name a few. Check out the full cast list below and let us know if you’ll watch.

Kaitlyn-Bristowe-Nick-Viall-Andi-Dorfman

It seemed all good in the hood when former Bachelorette leads Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman joined their mutual runner-up Nick Viall during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel to promote Nick’s season of The Bachelor. The thought of this made me feel awkward given Kaitlyn and Nick’s history, but also because of Kaitlyn’s rocky history with the Bachelor franchise. Kaitlyn infamously spoiled her own Bachelorette season when she accidentally posted a photo with her in bed with her winner/fiance Shawn Booth. So I was pretty surprised when she was back in the fold promoting The Bachelor. Well, that was short-lived since Kaitlyn ranted on Twitter about Nick getting the opportunity to be on Dancing With the Stars.

The last lead from the franchise to appear on DWTS was Chris Soules and many people credit the demise of his Bachelor engagement with Whitney Bischoff to being on Dancing With the Stars. And many past Bachelor leads have warned their successors from following in their foot steps since the show is rough for a new relationship. So it wasn’t super surprising when the last three series leads did not go on to the ballroom. Well, apparently there’s more to that.

We have seen Erika Jayne working her dance moves all season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in preparation for her music video shoot. Now she is going to put those moves to the test as a cast member on the next season of Dancing With the Stars.

The news isn’t officially official until the celebrity contestants and their dance partners are announced on Good Morning America’s March 1 episode, but it seems to be a go.

Jennifer-Lopez-World-Of-Dance-NeYo-Derek-Hough-Jenna-Dewan

I am a sucker for all things Jennifer Lopez, so I’m interested to see how her new dance reality show ends up being. At the same time, there are a shit ton of dance-focused reality shows on television so I don’t know who’s asking for another one. Nevertheless, I trust JLo and I’ll give World of Dance a chance, especially since Jennifer revealed that Jenna Dewan Tatum, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo will also be a part of the project.

I assume Jennifer will reveal more as the premiere date becomes closer, but the fact that she got some seriously respected dancers on board should be a good sign that this show will actually be worth watching. Or at least I hope so.

This weekend was the Peta Murgatroyd baby shower celebration. Oh, and her hottie husband-and-daddy-to-be Maksim Chmerkovskiy was there, too.

Peta and Maks headed to New Jersey for the weekend and celebrated their upcoming arrival with family and friends in Brooklyn at the McCarren Hotel. Among the guests: Amber Rose, who is dating Dancing with the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy.

Their baby boy is due any day now!

Check out the photos below. They shared some of the photos on instagram and there’s a gallery from the event down at the bottom, too.

Even though Maksim Chmerkovskiy has taken breaks from Dancing With the Stars before, it’s hard to imagine the show without him on a permanent basis, but apparently Maks is so done with the show. Who knows if this is true forever, but he does seem pretty serious this time.

And you know what? It makes sense. He is engaged to Peta Murgatroyd and they are expecting their first child together soon, so it is perfectly valid and actually refreshing that he would want to focus on his family life even though he has a red hot career on such a popular reality TV show.

Terra Jole and Sasha Farber on DWTS

It’s so crazy that Terra Jole threw herself into Dancing With the Stars just a couple weeks after giving birth to her second child. I’m a (relatively) healthy person and I feel like I would die from the rigor of competing on Dancing with the Stars, so I have no idea how a new mom is able to do that so soon. So it’s really not at all surprising that Terra opened up about how strenuous the show is on her body.

Not only is Terra a mother to a newborn, but she is also a little person, so she really has a lot to manage when it comes to competing in such a physical competition. And even with all that, she is still doing very well on show.

DANCING WITH THE STARS - AMBER ROSE - The stars grace the ballroom floor for the first time on live national television with their professional partners during the two-hour season premiere of

I have no idea why people hate on Amber Rose. It’s cool that she’s made a career solely of being herself. I know that’s common these days, but Amber is definitely one of the best at it and I cannot knock her hustle. Plus, she actually has some articulate things to say when it comes to social issues. I know Amber is not an entertainer in the traditional sense, but she is making some major moves and going on a world tour.

No, Amber is not taking her new moves from Dancing With the Stars to do some sort of performing. In fact, Amber is going to do what she does best and just be Amber – which is apparently worth a lot since she is reportedly getting paid $8 million to do this.
