Dancing With The Stars

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.

TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED THIS RELATIONSHIP HAS FIZZLED?

Dancing with the Stars will be unveiling its season 11 cast later this month.

ABC announced this weekend that the all new cast will be revealed on August 30, during an episode of their upcoming reality series Bachelor Pad.

As for the casting rumors, we reported last week that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino are said to be in talks to appear on the new season. Since then, there have been numerous reports stating that Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky will be appearing on the show.

RadarOnline also reported days ago that current headline maker/Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva is in “secret negotiations” to join the cast.

The new season of DWTS is set to premiere on Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

TELL US: WHO WOULD YOU RATHER SEE ON THE SHOW? TERESA, THE SITUATION OR ALI?


While the new season of Dancing With The Stars doesn’t debut until September 20th, the casting rumors and speculations have already began.

Coming off its most popular season ever, it seems DWTS might be ready to take things up a notch with a Jersey cast invasion.

First TMZ confirmed yesterday that Jersey Shore breakout star The Situation is in secret negotiations to star on the upcoming season. According to TMZ, nothing’s official yet but sources close to the MTV reality star state the deadline for negotiations is Monday, so we should know by then whether or not he will be appearing on the show.

Which brings us to Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. The 37-year-old Bravo reality star, who might or might not be channeling a modern day cave woman in the above photo, made some interesting tweets yesterday.

“I am thinking about doing “Dancing with the Stars” though. What do you guys think? xx

Yes, I’m seriously thinking ab it as long as my kids come w me.

WOW, I did not expect the huge positive response from everyone about being on #DWTS ! Thank you! You’d all vote for me, right?

The costumes are definitely “me” right? Who should I make them give me as a partner? @MaksimC is the hottest, no? And he’s fiesty like me! #DWTS”

Those were the tweets made by Teresa on her twitter page. Oddly enough, no news outlet has confirmed that Teresa is indeed in talks to appear on the show.

However her appearance on the show is not far fetched considering she is one of the most popular Bravo housewives at the moment, albeit for all the wrong reasons, plus Kate Gosselin appeared on the show last season, leading to a noticeable increase in the show’s ratings. It would only make sense for ABC to want to cast someone similar to replace Kate, a reality star the public loves to hate aka Teresa Giudice. And while Teresa doesn’t have eight children, it can’t hurt that she has a plus 4.

And in case you’re wondering, the “stars” get paid to do the show, and Teresa would get a paycheck if she decided to do it. Kate Gosselin received a reported $500, 000 for her time on the show, though Teresa will likely not receive close to that amount. A DWTS rep also did not deny the casting rumors only telling Zap2it that casting is still ongoing in preparation for the new season.

Teresa, who is also likely trying to distract the public from her upcoming humiliating public auction, also took the time to take some shots at Danielle Staub and Bethennny Frankel.

When asked by a fan if she would be back for another season of RHONJ, Teresa replied: “Not sure. It’s not really fun filming with a felon… :(” Interesting that Teresa and her hubby Joe are currently being accused of perjury.

And when it comes to Bethenny, and the claims that Teresa copied her by also having ‘Skinny’ in her book title, Teresa responded: “When “Skinny Italian” went to press, @Bethenny ‘s only book was called “Naturally Thin.” They’re both great books, but totally different…”

She then added, “PS- I love love LOVE @kimbarnouin & @Bethenny so no fake Twitter feuds… (even tho I’m sure B’s sad my book outsold hers in 1/2 the time).”

And those folks are the words of a woman who’s kids’ crib, beds, TVs, toys are about to be auctioned off in less than a month.

Despite their numerous denials and non-denials, it seems Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are dating after all!

The former Dancing With The Stars dancing partners were first seen sneaking in a kiss weeks ago during a birthday party for professional dancer Derek Hough, and then the NYPost caught the two dirty dancing just lask week in New York City.

The latest is now a FOX News article which confirms the duo are dating but taking things slow.  “Erin is back to work for ESPN, but she and Maks are still finding plenty of time to meet up any chance they get. They really do have a connection and bond. It’s a relationship – their chemistry is perfect,” the source said, saying both are “silly and sexy at the same time.”

The source continues, “Erin isn’t looking to tie Maks down, but they are not ready to call it quits after spending so much time together doing the show. They are super close and are always making plans to see each other.”

So what’s next for the sexy couple? Well the two will be attending the Country Music Awards June 9th in Nashville.  They will be presenting an award together.

Days after being crowned the winner of Dancing With The Stars, the same question continues to come up – Was Nicole Scherzinger too good to be on the show?

One person who believes the answer to that is yes is none other than her fellow DWTS cast-mate Niecy Nash.  “I like to see the growth,” says the comedian to PEOPLE. “Nicole today is who she was when she got here — she was a great dancer and she still is.”

Nicole, who beat out Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek and ESPN reporter Erin Andrews, was the favorite from day one, and many fans, including Niecy, feel the show is quickly losing sight of its original premise, which was to take celebrities out of their comfort zone and onto the ballroom floor.

“There were moments you couldn’t tell her from the pro dancers,” says Niecy of Nicole, who received high praises from the judges, even being called the best dancer the show has ever seen by Carie Ann.

Dancing With the Stars is something that resonates with me when the contestants have a journey. I was such a big fan of Kelly Osbourne last year because she had the most transformation,” continues Niecy. “I cheer for the people who have evolved. To me, that’s what the competition should be.”
