A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
To put it mildly, it is tough to be Ryan Lochte these days. Sure, he is a wealthy, Olympic medalist so life can be worse, but he has been through the ringer in the media. Everyone is disappointed in Ryan for lying about getting robbed at gunpoint, so wasn’t surprising that he joined Dancing With the Stars to rehab his tarnished image. Unfortunately for the swimmer, that’s not going well so far, since protesters rushed the stage during the premiere episode.
If anyone needs to be on this show, it’s Ryan Lochte. Undoing his poor reputation, is going to take a lot of effort and I’m not just talking about nailing his routines on the dance floor. This is going to be a rough road ahead if he survives elimination. No matter how you feel about the Olympian, you have to admit that it was probably scary to encounter those protesters.
“This fall, I was planning on being immersed in rehearsals for Singin’ in the Rain on Broadway, but due to successes of the shows currently running, that project has been delayed because there simply isn’t a theater available,” said Derek. “With my fall schedule freeing up I’m excited to say that I’ll be back on Dancing with the Stars for Season 23. It is always great to be back with my DWTS family, coaching, creating, and making lasting memories.”
I never thought Dancing With The Stars would last for so long, but it really is a reality TV staple at this point. It has revived the careers of plenty of celebs and has turned the professional dancers into stars.
Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, and Maks Chmerkovskiy have been around for a long time, and at this point, they are actually more famous than some of the “stars” they are dance with. Not only that, but there has been much gossip about all of them, including rumors of rivalries.
Fan favorite pros Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are all returning to the ballroom this season. About her return, Cheryl said, “I miss my family. It’s been three seasons. It feels like it’s been a decade since I’ve been back on Dancing with the Stars. I am so excited to be able to be back and dance with Ryan and put that spray tan and glitter back on. I’m ready to be back and do what I was born to do.” Check out the complete cast list below and let us know if you plan to watch.
