Dancing With The Stars

The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.

There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star, The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.

Above is this season’s Kate Gosselin Bristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.

Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”

As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.

And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.

The favorites to win at the moment? Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy according to Las Vegas odds.

Following the Monday night announcement of the dull cast of Dancing With The Stars, ABC is now revealing the professional/celebrity pairings!

The most talked about “star” this season is Jersey Shore break out star The Situation, who will be paired off with pro dancer Karina Smirnoff.

This marks Karina’s return to the show since her last appearance on season 9. Also returning this season is Karina’s ex-fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy who is paired up with Singer/Actress Brandy.

And while the 11th season doesn’t premiere until Sept. 20, Bristol Palin is already bringing the lols as she tells PEOPLE magazine she will be wearing modest outfits on the show. “I think I will be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that’s who I am,” said Bristol. Allrighty then.

Below is the full list of the celebrities and their partners.

  • Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower
  • Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel
  • Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke
  • Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough
  • David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnso
  • Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas
  • Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas
  • Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani
  • Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff
  • Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya

TELL US – WHO DO YOU PREDICT WILL BE GOING HOME FIRST?

After weeks of speculation, the ABC network finally unveiled the new cast of Dancing With The Stars last night.

The big reveal, done press conference style, was however a tad uneventful as the names of 11 of the 12 cast members had already leaked thanks to multiple media outlets. The only star who’s name was not leaked? Turned out to be Disney actor Kyle Massey. Kyle starred on Disney’s hit show That’s So Raven, which might or might not be one of the best shows in Disney’s history.

And despite the rumors she started herself on twitter, Teresa Giudice is not a part of the cast. No Bravo reality star is a part of the cast, though we still think throwing a housewife into the mix would have been genius.

So the official DWTS 11 cast includes Brandy; Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey; Comedian Margaret Cho; The Hills alum Audrina Patridge; Florence Henderson; Bristol Palin, Michael Bolton; Jersey Shore‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino; David Hasselhoff; NBA champion Rick Fox; NFL quarterback Kurt Warner; & Disney star Kyle Massey.

ABC will officially reveal the professional partners of the stars tomorrow. It is rumored that Karina Smirnoff will be partnered up with The Situation, while Florence Henderson will be partnered with Corky Ballas.

Bristol Palin appeared on GMA today with her partner Mark Ballas (let the romance rumors begin!) “I just wanted to do it because it’s so fun,” she told UsWeekly at a DWTS press conference Monday night. “It’s positive and it’s a good competition. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and have a good time.”

As for her famous mom Sarah Palin, Bristol reveals she is very supportive. “She’s always been my No. 1 fan,” said Bristol, 19. “Of course, she’ll be down here [cheering me on].”

A new episode of the Bachelor Pad airs tonight during which the 13 remaining contestants continue to vie for the $250,000 prize.

On the Bachelor Pad tonight, an emotionally-bruising competition will bring plenty of tears when the contestants have to answer some pretty controversial questions about their fellow contestants.

Questions on the survey will include “Who is the sexiest person?”, “Who is the most promiscuous?”, “Who is going to win?”, “Who is the craziest,” “Who is the smartest?”, “Who is the biggest liar?”, “Who is the most beautiful?” and “Who is the most disliked?” Another couple will be eliminated tonight.

Also airing tonight is the long awaited official announcement from ABC regarding the new cast of Dancing With The Stars.

Though we’re still hours away from the official unveiling of the cast, several media outlets have confirmed the following “stars” will be on the upcoming season – Bristol Palin, Michael Bolton, Rick Fox, Jennifer Grey, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Margaret Cho, David Hasselhoff, Audrina Patridge, Brandy, Florence Henderson, and Kurt Warner.

With the eleven names that have leaked out already, it seems we’re in for only one or two surprises tonight.

Levi JohnstonBristol Palin

Buckle up folks, it seems we have us an all new Jon Gosselin/Kate Gosselin 2.0.

Just a day after E! Online broke the news of Bristol Palin joining the cast of Dancing With The Stars, Bristol’s baby daddy/2x former fiance/Playgirl model Levi Johnston is now adding his own 2 cents to the news.

Levi, 20, appeared on CBS’ “The Early Show” this morning and spoke about Bristol and his mayoral race. Yes, he’s planning to run for mayor in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

See, Bristol, 19, has criticized Levi for being obsessed with fame in the past, even citing that as the reason she ended their second engagement. So upon hearing the news that Bristol will be a contestant on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars,” Levi stated, “I don’t think I’m any more obsessed with making a career out of this than she is.”

He added, “Obviously she’s doing Dancing with the Stars. I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with any of it. I’m just taking it as it comes.” Bristol has also previously appeared on an episode of ABC’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”

Popeater is also reporting today that a source close to Bristol tells them she “is excited and scared and hopes she gets Maksim Chmerkovskiy as her partner.”

In other DWTS related news, more names continue to leak out before the official Monday announcement from ABC. E! News is reporting today that Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson, Singer Michael Bolton, former NBA Player Rick Fox, and Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey have all been added to the cast.

The above stars join the previously confirmed Brandy, The Situation, Audrina Patridge, and David Hasselhoff.

E! also confirms the following stars will not be a part of the upcoming season – Kirstie Alley, Landon Donovan, Troy Aikman, or anyone for the Bachelor(ette) franchise.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE DWTS CAST SO FAR?

And just like that, it seems Dancing With The Stars has found a way to top their last season casting of Kate Gosselin.

E! Online is breaking the news today and confirming that Bristol Palin, daughter of former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, has joined the cast of DWTS.

E! adds that this will be the second time the 19-year-old has appeared on an ABC show, as she also guest starred last month on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Also confirmed for the new season of DWTS are David Hasselhoff, Audrina Patridge, The Situation and Brandy.

Likely not appearing on this season are Kirstie Alley, and Bachelorette stars Ali & Roberto, “unless there are a few last-minute switcheroos,” says E!.

A rep for ABC had the following to say regarding the news: “We don’t comment on casting rumors. The real Dancing With the Stars cast will be revealed Monday, Aug. 30, live on ABC during Bachelor Pad.”

With less than a week until the season 11 cast of Dancing With The Stars is officially unveiled, the cast rumors continue to spread like wildfire.

So let’s break down who is in and who is out -

Confirmed – Multiple media outlets have confirmed the following “stars” have signed on do to the show. Jersey Shore’s The Situation is a done deal according to Ok magazine and other media outlets.

The Hills star Audrina Patridge and R&B singer Brandy have also signed the dotted line according to Perez Hilton.

Likely In – Not confirmed but likely in are retired NFL player Kurt Warner, Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and her fiancé, Roberto Martinez, who according to E! Online and OK magazine, have yet to finalize their deal. Also heavily rumored to be in? Soccer player Landon Donovan and Michael Bolton.

Long Shots – There are also rumblings that the show wants Jon Gosselin, you know, following the media blitz his ex-wife Kate Gosselin brought to the show last season. Bravo Housewife Teresa Giudice also seems to be a long shot, as there have been no reports about her joining the show since her tweets about doing the show in late July. Though we do think adding a Bravo housewife to the show would be genius, maybe just not Teresa.

Other long shots include David Hasselhoff, Lindsay Lohan, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

TELL US – WHICH OF THESE STARS DO YOU WANT TO SEE ON DWTS? WHICH BRAVO HOUSEWIFE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON THE SHOW?

UPDATE - UsWeekly is now reporting that David Hasselhoff has signed on for the 11th season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. The mag also states Bachelorette Ali and her fiance Roberto are likely out.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Erin Andrews

Though they never discussed their romantic relationship in public, numerous media outlets confirmed ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy began dating after being paired up on Dancing With The Stars.

It however seems the couple, pictured above on July 14th at the 2010 ESPY awards show, might be dunzo. A new report by the sports blog TerezOwens.com says the two fan favorites are currently broken up on a break.

According to the site, Erin and Maks “were dating during the show, but felt they would give it a real shot once all the hoopla subsided and the show ended..They gave it a whirl and things were going very well..like most couples they got into fights from time to time..but one fight in particular changed the relationship forever.”

The reported big blowout occurred after the couple attended the ESPY awards together. A source tells the site, “Erin and Maks have decided to take a break for now and see if they can patch things up down the road..The romance did fizzle a little bit after the show ended and the promotional tours stopped..They weren’t forced to spend time together and it became more of a distraction to be fully committed..”

The two reportedly remain close friends but with Erin, 32, being very busy with work (she was promoted at ESPN and is now a contributor for GMA) and Maksim, 30, working more than ever, things have cooled off between the two.

Another telling sign? The pair used to tweet to each other on twitter constantly, but only one twitter exchange since their reported July 14 blow up.

Maks tweeted to Erin on July 26th – “Good luck tomorrow @ErinAndrews……..”

Erin replied the next day – “thx maks.”

The good luck tweet was regarding Erin’s visit to Capital Hill, as she went to speak with lawmakers, wanting tougher laws implemented for stalking.

As we have previously reported, the new cast of DWTS will be announced Aug 30 on ABC’s The Bachelor Pad. Teresa Giudice, The Situation, and Ali Fedotowsky are a few rumored to be joining the show.

UPDATE – Erin confirms in a new interview with Gainesville magazine , done after the ESPY awards, that she isn’t dating anyone.
