Ugh. Two of my favorite Dancing with the Stars pros have revealed that they will not be participating in the upcoming season. I mean, my interest level wasn't that great to begin with… but still… now it's nearly non-existent.
According to TMZ, Maksim Chmerkovskiydecided not to dance this season, to pursue other projects, and broke the news to producers a few days ago. I imagine they're still crying in their Cherrios. Oh wait… that's just me.
Then, when asked about the upcoming season, Chelsie Hightowerlet it slip that she, too, will not be dancing. These people clearly want to make Dancing with the Stars as uncomfortable as possible for me. Will Emily Maynard be the cherry on top of my misery sundae?
Meanwhile, dance troupe member Sharna Burgesstweeted that she has graduated to pro. Good for her, but she's no Chelsie.
You have to love what constitutes a star these days…especially in the eyes of ABC execs when they are casting Dancing with the Stars. You can't really blame them though…whenLindsay Lohan turns down the show, it may be time to call it quits.
As always, rumors are swirling about who may foxtrotting across the ballroom. Some of the names being tossed around are more believable than others, and some would be pure television gold if the gossip proves to be true. Likewise, the speculation is often more exciting than the dancing itself. ABC's Bachelorette darling Emily Maynard's name has been thrown into the mix, as well as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon. How amazing would that be?
It's no secret that Dancing with the Stars proVal Chmerkovskiy and General Hospital star Kelly Monaco shared an undeniable chemistry on the Dancing with the Stars dance floor. What has remained a secret, however, is whether or not the All Stars pair have put that chemistry to good use off the dance floor. I hope so, because they are hot, hot, hot together.
Honestly, I find it slightly amusing that Val and Kelly's chemistry continues to be a hot topic. I mean, I've continued to stalk follow them, as I'm a fan of the Chmerkovskiy brothers, but I didn't think many others would be interested this long after the season finale. Nevertheless, speculation surrounding Val and Kelly's relationship status persists, with the latest report claiming that they're now officially an item.
When the IRS freezes your bank accounts because you owe them thousands of dollars and the rest of the industry has labeled you as unhireable, you jump at any legitimate offer that comes your way, unless you'reLindsay Lohan.
The troubled starlet was offered one of the biggest Dancing with the Stars salaries – $550,000 – to compete in the upcoming season, but she turned it down, says TMZ! Lindsay has reportedly said that she refuses to do reality TV, thinking she's too talented to stoop to those levels of desperation just yet.
Dancing with the StarsAll Stars was a bore for fans and a disappointment for ABC. And, after seeing a dip in DWTS' viewer numbers (11-16 million for all stars compared to the previous season's 13-18 million), ABC has decided the show has seen its day we want to see less good dancers and more train wrecks. Oh joy!
It's that time of year again. You know what I mean… The time of year when the annual Dancing With The Stars casting speculation resumes in earnest.
We thought we'd help ABC out a bit by dropping some hints about which reality stars we absolutely need (ok want, but semantics, right?) to see strap on a shiny sequined leotard, drop the magical ten pounds, and prance their way into public humiliation whileDerek Houghgyrates them into a sequined disco ball statue.
