Ali Fedotowsky

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.

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.

RadarOnline is reporting that professional mistress Rachel Uchitel was looking to date former Bachelor star Jake Pavelka.

According to the site, Rachel sent one of Jake’s friends an email asking to be set up with the newly-single former pilot. But it seems Jake wasn’t too keen on dating the Celebrity Rehab 4 cast member.

“Jake thinks she’s probably a ‘nice girl’ but isn’t looking to date anytime soon,” the source said. As for what Jake wants in a woman, he jokingly tells UsWeekly he likes “blondes, brunettes, redheads or any combination.”

Jake adds, “I’m just looking for a sweetheart. That’s the biggest thing. I’m looking for a girl that has a really big heart.” Getting into another relationship is however not on Jake’s radar at the moment. “You know what, being single sometimes isn’t a bad thing. It gives you time to worry about you and work on yourself.”


In other news, Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky and fiance Roberto Martinez are still going strong an entire week after their show ended. For those not familiar with the show, a week in Bachelor/Bachelorette couple history is equivalent to about a year month in ‘real life.’

The two have even moved into their new place in San Diego, CA. Ali twitted, “All moved into our place in San Diego- minus the furniture. So excited to decorate our home together”.

And as for their wedding, you know since they are engaged and all, the two are wanting to tie the knot by next summer and are open to doing it on national television.

“We’re definitely open to that idea,” Roberto said. “The money we can save on that, we could use to invest in our lives. You know what? It’d be kind of cool to share that moment.”

Jake Pavelka

Just over a month after his nasty and very public split with fiance Vienna Girardi, it seems Jake Pavelka is quite ready to move on to a new relationship.

“I’m not dating yet. I’m still just taking time for me,” the former Bachelor star told PEOPLE at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Chicago. “I’m definitely doing some ‘me time’ right now.”

And when asked about the current season of the Bachelorette featuring his ex Ali Fedotowsky, Jake had the following to say: “I feel like I know Ali [Fedotowsky] pretty well,” he said. “I think any decision she makes is going to be the right one for her. She could go either way.”

And despite has nasty split with Vienna, Jake has no regrets with doing the show. You grow up so much during that show,” he added. “You’re not the same person when you start that you are when you finish. It’s an incredible experience.”

Kelly Bensimon with Jake Pavelka

In other news, could a romance or friendship be budding between Jake and the Real Housewives of NYC’s nuttiness known as Kelly Bensimon?

The two were photographed running side by side in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Chicago this weekend, and have since been tweeting to each other, leading to dating rumors.

After the race, Kelly made the following tweets after posting a picture of herself with Jake at the marathon –

@LitSnitch #bachelor. Not sure who to believe, not my show to judge. Jake is a good guy. He should be an actor @jakepavelka1

@jakepavelka1 hope to see you and janice this week. Maybe nobu????? Yummmm

@megellisonfloyd @jakepavelka1 don’t judge jake. All reality stars are just having fun with the process. Wear love

Jake also tweeted back the following –

@kikilet Hey! We landed a while ago and sat on the ramp for hour and half! Good luck! And great running w u as well!

@kikilet Nobu! See u there!

Slow news day folks. All very interesting.

The season finale of The Bachelorette aired last night with Ali Fedotowsky choosing Roberto Martinez as her final pick. Above is a picture of the couple taken last night in LA.

Roberto then got on one knee and proposed to an accepting Ali, which seemed like a traditional ending for the ABC hit show. The surprise of the night however came when Ali, 25, told finalist Chris Lambton, a 33-year-old contractor from Cape Cod, Mass., that she was in love with Roberto — just before the two were supposed to go on their final date, definitely a first in the show’s history.

“I’m in love with somebody else. I have to let you go here and not wait until tomorrow. This wasn’t an easy decision. It was really hard. I just didn’t want to put you through tomorrow because I know that’s going to be so hard,” said Ali to Chris.

Roberto, 26, had longed been the front runner of the show from the start, after receiving the first impression rose from Ali. Oddly enough, this is the first time in the show’s history that the person who received the first impression rose came out the winner.

“I love Roberto,” gushed Ali. “I love him. I’ve never ever in my whole life felt this good in a relationship.”

Ali and Roberto also appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show Monday night, during which Ali revealed she and Roberto would like to walk down the aisle “in the spring” of next year.


Chris Lambton

Now that the show is over, the question on everyone’s minds is who will be the next Bachelor? It has been rumored that Ty Brown from this Bachelorette season was being considered, but according to the show insider, Reality Steve, ABC would like Chris Lambton for the upcoming season.

Reality Steve reported yesterday that Chris, 33, has been offered the next Bachelor spot and that he will likely accept. The official announcement will come from ABC any day now.

Bachelorette Finale

This season finale of “The Bachelorette” is set to air tonight, in what ABC is touting as an ending that has never happened in the Bachelorette history.

Ali Fedotowsky is now left with her two finalists, Chris Lambton, a 33-year-old landscaper from Cape Cod, and Roberto Martinez, a 26-year-old insurance agent from Charleston, both of whom will be meeting her family in tonight’s episode. Ali will spend her final date with Roberto jet skiing, swimming and picnicking, while her date with Chris L. is described as emotional and taking a surprising turn.

And for the first time in the past few Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons, the finale results have not been leaked. Even Bachelor show insider RealitySteve.com had admitted he does not know how the show ends this season.

This has of course led to a ton of rumors and speculation about what Ali will do tonight. The most popular one is that Ali will pick no one, which has never happened in the Bachelorette history. The other speculation is that Ali will pick one of the guys, and then propose to the winner.

There are also conflicting media reports, which only leads to more confusion regarding Ali’s final choice. UsWeekly is reporting Ali is engaged to one of her finalists, and is planning her wedding while Star magazine is reporting this week that Ali was seen flirting with NFL Quarterback Matt Leinart, even giving him her phone number.

While we all continue to speculate on the ending, one rumor that has been debunked is the one about the newly single Jake Pavelka coming back next season as the show’s Bachelor. The show’s host Chris Harrison tells E! Online, “No. Never. [Laughs.] That will never happen. Not with me as a host anyway,” when asked about the possibility of Jake returning.

When it comes to tongiht’s ending, Chris says, “People will be surprised. Whether it’s good or not, Ali’s happy with it and she’s sticking by it. It’ll be interesting. I really just want to sit back and watch the fan reactions, what the comments are and how they feel it all played out.”

And as for Ali, well let’s just say she’s not giving anything away, only saying she is happy with her decision.

What is certain is that the finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC, immediately followed by “After the Final Rose.”

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?


The ‘Men Tell All‘ reunion of the Bachelorette is set to air tonight on ABC, during which Ali Fedotowsky will be forced to face all the contestants she eliminated this season.

So what can we expect tonight? This seems to be the big question as the most memorable and most controversial contestants from this season will be absent from tonight’s show.  Three timing douche Justin Rego, and heart-breaker Frank Neuschaefer did not attend the taping.  Also not in attendance are finalists Roberto Martinez and Chris Lambton.  Even the controversial Craig McKinnon was not in attendance.

While Justin did not attend the taping, as he has claimed in the past that the Bachelorette producers gave him a bad edit, his absence did not stop the other guys from bashing him.

“The guy is evil. He wanted to make it to the final three and sabotage everything she wanted to do,” Craig R. tells host Chris Harrison. “I am speaking for each one of you right now that none of us feel we want to continue any ongoing friendship with him.”

Contestant Ty Brown, who is rumored to be in the running to be the next Bachelor, also brings up the fact that Justin received the most votes the very first night when the guys voted him as the one who was there for the wrong reason, saying, “How could 25 guys be wrong?”  Weatherman Jonathan Novack also gets ganged up on tonight, as the guys scold him for not being forthcoming when Craig M. asked who had ratted him out to Ali as “dangerous.”

In other Bachelorette news, PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Kirk DeWindt, who was eliminated by Ali after making it to the final 4, has since moved on.

According to PEOPLE, Kirk is now dating Jessie Sulidis, who competed with Ali for Jake Pavelka’s heart during the former season of the Bachelor.

The two reportedly met during an after party for the July 17th taping of the Men Tell All, during which they exchanged numbers and a kiss.  Kirk is said to be driving to Canada this weekend to visit Jesse and a source tells the mag “he is definitely over Ali!”  Jesse will also be appearing on the upcoming Bachelor Pad.

Bachelor Jake

Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is now weighing in on those is pesky gay rumors swirling around Jake Pavelka.

Ali had the following to say during her appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday: “Just because he wears really nice turtleneck sweaters does not mean he’s gay!” Jake has been the subject of gay rumors since his nasty split with Vienna Girardi last month, after Vienna, 24, told Star magazine he refused to have sex with her for months.

BuzzSugar also did an all new interview with Ali during which she discusses being dumped by Frank Neuschafer, what really happens on those overnight dates, and briefly touches on her final decision.

Excerpts from Ali’s interview is below –

BuzzSugar: Was it difficult to watch this week’s episode with Frank again?
Ali Fedotowsky: I really did get emotional. I’ve been watching the shows and sort of reliving them, so to see myself that down is hard. Watching yourself cry is difficult! It just reaffirmed that I’m so much better off for him leaving. This whole time, I had always said to my producers that I knew Frank would hurt me at same point. He really made me feel insecure throughout the thing, and I said to him, ‘My relationship with you scares me.’ I’m positive that I would not have ended up with Frank in the end, because I wouldn’t have been able to commit to someone who scared me that much.

Buzz: Last night we saw the overnight dates — are they as awkward as they look?
AF: So awkward! I shouldn’t even say awkward, but you don’t know what people are expecting. Because I’m offering a guy an overnight date card, that doesn’t mean we’re going to go in the room and take all of our clothes off and get into bed! Yes, I’m giving him an overnight card, but I am not the type of girl to be with one guy, and then a minute later be with another guy. I would never do that. Ever. It’s not what people think it is. I don’t know that I’m even necessarily ready to sleep next to a guy one night and then another guy the next night.

Buzz: Well, we know Frank is out, but there are conflicting rumors saying that you’re single or that you’re engaged and already planning your wedding! Has it been difficult to keep the real outcome a secret?
AF: I’m good at keeping secrets, so it’s been OK. But it is really hard in the sense that I don’t want to keep in the secret! I just want to be like, ‘You’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re kind of right but wrong.’ I just want everything out there, so I can talk about it and live my life whether I’m a single woman or whether I’m happily engaged.

Buzz: So, I take it you’re happy with your decision?
AF: I’m so happy with my decision. I wouldn’t change anything!
