We all know the Kardashians love them some Dancing With The Stars! Several of the famegrubbing family members have shimmied into their sequins to shake their bootys. Well, the latest Kardashian associate to get considered for the show is none other than poor whipped Bruce Jenner!
Oh, Bruce – imagine doing something besides playing with helicopters without Kris Jenner breathing down your neck whilst she prostitutes your daughters for a measly 10%! I swear she even forced Bruce to get that “facelift”!
Yes, unfortunately Bruce is the latest name to be thrown out as a possible contender for the show. I personally think he would be fun on the show – at least as far as Kardashians go!
Apparently, despite the looming deadline to announce the new cast, the producers haven’t filled the fourteen celebrity spots yet! According to HollywoodLife, DWTS producers think Bruce would be a great option. Or they realize Bruce has nothing else going on and would be available last minute!
Bruce hasn’t decided if he’ll sign on yet. He’s likely waiting for Kris to give the ok!
In other casting news, The Huffington Post is reporting that NY Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was bragging of turning down a DWTS offer while backstage at the Grammy’s!
And singer Ryan Tedder was overheard telling people that Chariot singer Gavin McGraw will be joining the cast this season! Gavin or his rep hasn’t confirmed or denied an interest in the show, but I guess we’ll find out on February 28th when the official lineup is announced.
Everyone’s favorite Bachelor Pad villainess Vienna Girardi is speaking out about her relationship with ex-boyfriend and Bachelor Pad pad partner, Kasey Kahl! And Vienna is now accusing the Kasey “Guard And Protect Your Heart” Kahl of abuse!
Speaking to Reality Weekly, Vienna describes the fear she felt in her past relationship, which she describes as “hell” and explains why she had to leave Kasey! “I went through hell with him, with his drinking and his anger,” she reveals. “I had enough, I couldn’t take it anymore.”
Vienna’s fear was so acute it led her to break up with Kasey in November, move out of their Beverly Hills apartment, and literally flee to Florida. “I had to get away from it,” she explains.
Vienna’s first experience with Made-For-TV love was scarcely better. After winning The Bachelorand becoming engaged to Jake Pavelka, Vienna had a similar experience; claiming Jake’s temper and his controlling behavior forced her to end the engagement and move out.
While dating Kasey, Vienna says she was subjected to constant emotional abuse and although he never hit her with closed fists, he got physical in other ways. “He kicked me off the couch one night with his foot,” she recalls. “I have voice recordings of Kasey when he has called me drunk and mad, yelling he is going to f–k a girl – while we were dating,” Vienna insists.
Vienna claims Kasey often promised to change; to stop drinking, but he never did. “He got drunk every day,” she alleges. “Kasey claims to never remember anything he does when he’s drunk. And that is a big problem because he never thinks he has done anything wrong.”
Kasey was recently arrested in his hometown of Fresno, CA after getting into a bar brawl. He allegedly punched a woman in the face, giving her a bloody nose. Kasey was arrested with several friends; no charges were filed and the police let him go. Vienna alleges the woman Kasey supposedly hit is suing him because of the assault.
The couple attempted to work through their issues on the new Vh1 show, Relationship Rehab, where Kasey admitted he had a problem with drinking – but nothing got resolved. Vienna remained afraid of his temper: “I was so scared,” she admits and the couple broke up.
Vienna describes their break up as difficult and said Kasey took it hard. “Kasey wasn’t ready to break up,” Vienna explains, adding that she wanted to go in a different direction in her life, which further angered him. “I wanted to buy a house, move to Florida, and open a clothing store. Kasey got really mad about that.”
Ultimately, Vienna decided she had to leave, but remained silent until now, because she was afraid to tell anyone. And it has nothing at all to do with promoting her newest reality show?
“I was so afraid to tell people about how he treated me because I was scared no one would ever believe me after what happened with Jake,” Vienna admits. “So I just picked up and left LA. I came home to Florida and started my life again.”
Vienna is hopeful that Kasey will realize the error of his ways and stop drinking once and for all. “Maybe he will learn,” Vienna says. “Sadly, he is a good guy when he’s not drinking.” Kasey has yet to comment on these allegations, but I’m sure he will in the next day or two!
Just a side note – I sincerely hope claiming domestic abuse is not going to be the new way wannabe celebrities seek attention from the media. Why don’t they stick to making sex tapes like the good old days. Domestic violence is an incredibly serious issue and should not be taken lightly. I hope all these women speaking out about alleged abuse are being truthful AND attempting to use their platform to help victims with fewer resources.
TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS ON VIENNA’S TRAUMATIC RELATIONSHIP WITH KASEY?
Southern, blonde beauty Emily Maynard will reprise her role as the sweet-natured, single mom looking for love on next season’s The Bachelorette. The twenty-six-year old won her season of the Bachelor and became engaged to two-time loser Brad Womack. The couple who promised to be together forever broke up shortly after filming citing Brad’s temper, along with his commitment issues, and Emily’s difficulty handling what she saw on the show.
Speaking to PEOPLE, Emily discusses her decision to return to television to find a man and admits it’s a little intimidating! “It really hasn’t hit me, what I’ve signed on to do,” she reveals. “I’m scared to death.”
Emily surprised fans when she agreed to do the show, since she initially turned down ABC’s requests. Ashley Hebert was famously cast in her place, much to the dismay of some of the guys. Emily says she she “genuinely” meant it when she told producers she had no interest. “At the time I was dealing with a breakup,” which factored into her decision to decline the opportunity. “I feel like the biggest hypocrite because I said that and now I’m doing it.”
What changed her mind? “I know it can work.” That’s what they all say… “I fell in love the first time and no, we didn’t end up getting married, but in the end just falling in love, for me, is a success,” Emily shares. Well, at least she still believes in finding fame love.
One of the biggest reasons Emily finally agreed to sign onto the show, besides the obvious of wanting to get married, is that ABC agreed to film in her hometown of Charlotte, NC so she can be near her six-year-old daughter, Ricki.
“She’s not going to be involved in a lot of filming and certainly not meeting the guys,” Emily says of Ricki’s participation. “But she’s really excited to go on vacation with Mommy.” Does that mean Emily’s season will include the typical jet-setting adventures? Wow! Good for Emily that she’s not willing to leave her child for two months.
Another reason Emily agreed to participate in the show is her difficulty meeting decent men. “My schedule is very different than a normal single guy’s schedule. I can’t go out every night of the week,” she explains. “They just kind of fizz out before they ever have a chance to become anything. I have to take things slowly because I have a daughter, so that makes it really hard.”
With ABC willing to make so many sacrifices on Emily’s behalf she claims she couldn’t say no! “I would be crazy to pass it up.”
And speaking of guys that were pretty bummed about last season’s Bachelorette, the infamous Bentley Williams may be making a return to vie for the heart of the woman he wanted to woo all along! When asked if she would give Bentley a chance, Emily believes everyone deserves a second (or third) chance! “He would really have to show remorse,” she admits. “But one thing I have learned is to never say never.” How much do you want to be he’ll be back with bells on?
IS EMILY CRAY FOR WANTING TO GIVE BENTLEY A SECOND CHANCE? ARE YOU SURPRISED SHE AGREED TO DO THE SHOW?
Everybody’s favorite game of will they or won’t they, speculating who will dance is soon coming to an end! The new Dancing With The Stars lineup will be announced February 28th according to ABC.
The celebrity cast for Season 14 will be unveiled on Good Morning America! Then the newbies will strap on their sequins and get to fox trottin to prepare for the March season premiere! Producers are apparently hoping for failed Presidential candidates Michelle Bachman or Herman Cain, along withJWoww, Tim Tebow, and Paula Dean to join the show!
For all y’all wondering just who will make the cut, rumors are also circulating that Giuliana Rancic has been approached by producers!
“Producers have reached out to see if Giuliana would like to be a part of the show,” a set insider tells HollywoodLife. “They love the triumph over tragedy element that she would bring.”
The star of Giuliana & Bill has been battling breast cancer and recently underwent surgery for a double mastectomy. Giuliana is recovering well with the help of her supportive husband Bill Rancic and I think she would be a fantastic candidate for the show, provided she is well enough to compete and feels ready for the challenge.
Giuliana certainly is an inspiration and would provide for a compelling storyline. I guess we’ll find out February 28th!
Dancing With The Stars returns Monday, March 19 at 8 PM EST on ABC.

WHO IS YOUR DREAM DWTS CAST MEMBER? IS GIULIANA A GOOD CHOICE FOR THE CAST?
ABC’s press release reads: “Emily Maynard, the beautiful, sweet, young mom who captured America’s and Brad Womack’s heart on the 15th season of ‘The Bachelor’, finally thought she had her happy ending. She accepted Brad’s proposal and was looking forward to walking down the aisle. Unfortunately her relationship with Brad ended, along with her dream of moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, and starting a family. But Emily is ready for her luck to change and to bring her the love she so richly deserves.”
Following her break up with Brad Womack last year, the former Bachelor winner had always remained adamant that she did not want to do the show. Her change of heart reportedly came when for the first time in Bachelorette history, ABC decided to have the guys film in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, rather than in Los Angeles, in order to remain close to her 6-year-old daughter Ricki.
“Bentley is Emily’s type and she knows the show well enough to expect producers to bring him back,” says an Emily pal. “It would be good for ABC, but she’s not sure how good it would be for her!” Bentley is her type???
Production on Emily’s season is expected to begin filming in March, with her season set to air late spring on ABC.

TELL US – NOW THAT IT’S OFFICIAL, DID ABC MAKE A GOOD CHOICE? WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE BENTLEY RETURN? YOU KNOW, SOLELY FOR DRAMA PURPOSES?
Fans anticipate the casting drama of Dancing With The Stars almost as much as they anticipate watching the celebs strap on their dancing gear and compete. Well, casting for season 14 is about to begin and already a whole host of names are being thrown around as possible contenders!
HollywoodLife is exclusively reporting that JWoww and Tim Tebow are both topping DWTS’ producers wish list and have already been approached to participate in the show. Eeks – Can you imagine what JWoww would wear to dance in!?
And following the announcement by Food Network’s star Paula Deen yesterday that she has Type II Diabetes, the show producers now want the 64-year-old on the show! “‘DWTS’ suits love good stories,” the source says. “It’s good timing. Paula just confirmed she has diabetes and this could help her a lot.”
The source also reveals that the show is hoping to get some failed presidential hopefuls on board by asking Michelle Bachman and Herman Cain to consider the show. Also, if Rick Perry or Ron Paul leave the presidential race producers are apparently hoping to entice one of them as well. That seems like one politico too many!
In other DWTS news two-time winner Cheryl Burke recently hinted that fans may get their wish for an all-star show! Cheryl taught a dance class in Mountain View, CA over the weekend and participated in a little Q & A session about the show, which was tweeted live by the peeps at Mountain View Patch.
Among some of the juicy tidbits Cheryl revealed, she mentioned that an all-star show could be in the works in time for season 15! Cheryl also talked on-set egos and revealed, “Some male dancers on the show have egos, but I stay out of it.” I wonder whom she could be referring to…
Cheryl also pointed out egos have never been a problem with male celebrities! Cheryl also shared that she takes Len Goodman‘s advice the most seriously because he’s a real ballroom judge.

THOUGHTS ON NEXT SEASON’S CASTING PICKS SO FAR? WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE ON AN ALL-STAR SHOW?!
Kasey Kahl will guard and protect your heart and get arrested doing it! Ok, so actually the former Bachelor Pad star got arrested for Drunk and Disorderly Conduct, but close enough!
TMZ reports that Kasey was arrested Sunday morning in Fresno, CA outside of Club Habanos for being drunk and disorderly while he was hanging out with friends. His mugshot, in which he actually looks nice, is below!
Kasey’s rep explains it was no big deal, “Kasey and his friends were hanging out outside of the club where police officers allegedly thought they were being too loud. Kasey, along with a couple friends, were taken to the police station, but were released a couple hours later. No charges were or have been filed against him.”
“Kasey was extremely respectful and very cooperative with the police officers despite the situation, even having a good laugh because of his model-esque mugshot. The police officers noted that it was the prettiest mugshot they’ve ever seen come into their station.” Well, I’m glad it wasn’t a DUI.
In other Kasey news, the two-time reality show loser at love will be appearing on Vh1′s Relationship Rehab with his ex-girlfriendVienna Girardi. Like people want to watch anymore of these two on television. But I digress, apparently Relationship Rehab is similar to Celebrity Rehab except it deals with well, you know, relationships instead of drugs and alcohol. Also, different? NoDr. Drew — instead viewers get Dr. Jenn Berman.
Apparently, there’s already been the prerequisite insufferable Vienna-Kasey drama because TMZ is reporting Vienna stormed off the set during a therapy session.
So why does Kasey need to appear on the show other than a paycheck and a desire for the spotlight? “I’m just a hopeless romantic cheese ball who wants to be happy.” Oh, dear…

THOUGHTS ON KASEY’S ARREST? IS IT THE PRETTIEST MUGSHOT YOU’VE EVER SEEN? WOULD YOU WATCH RELATIONSHIP REHAB?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO VIEW KASEY’S MUGSHOT!
When asked if he found love on the show, Ben plays coy stating “I obviously can’t tell you that. But I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience. Another cathartic, therapeutic adventure for me.” Hint – He did and is now engaged!
So what is Ben looking for in a potential mate? “It’s important for me to be with someone who’s well-rounded, cultured and flexible,” says Ben, 29. “Not someone who is so used to routine. Because my life is very sporadic. Being in the wine industry, no two days are the same. So those were important qualities that I looked for.”
Ben is also asked if he’s concerned that, you know, pretty much 99% of the show’s relationships end up not working out. “Relationships end whether you’re on a TV show or not. Some haven’t worked out and some have. There are some celebrated relationships on this show,” claims Ben. Good answer!
Ben also assures us that when “all of this is said and done, I just want to go back to my life in Northern California, where most people really don’t know who I am. And I’d prefer it that way.”
As for what we can expect on tonight’s premiere, sensitive New York blogger Jenna has an emotional breakdown over Ben while another contestant Monica — who is reportedly bisexual — shows more interest in a fellow contestant than in Ben! And Brittney tries to snag a first impression rose by bringing her Grandma on to meet Ben.
The Bachelor premieres tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
