DWTS 13

The official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 13 have now been released!

Above is the first glimpse of Chaz Bono, the first transgendered contestant on the show, in his dancing costume alongside partner Lacey Schwimmer. As we reported, the casting of Chaz, 42, has proven to be a rather controversial one for ABC with some fans voicing their disapproval.

Below are more photos of the remaining “stars” which includes David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Carson Kressley and their dancing partners!

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting today that Rob Kardashian has been slacking off when it comes to practicing his dance moves. Rob’s partner Cheryl Burke is reportedly “fed up” with him as he refuses to practice for more than 2 hours with her. Other contestants are putting in over 5 hours a day.

Cheryl now feels this shows Rob’s lack of interest in doing the show. And while he’s busy not practicing, Rob is reportedly bragging to his older sister Kimmie Kardashian that he will top her DWTS performance by making it past week 3. Good luck with that one Robbie!

Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on Sep. 19 at 8/7c.

DWTS 13 Cast

ABC has officially revealed the Dancing With The Stars season 13 pairings!

The revelation was made this morning on Good Morning America. One of the biggest surprises is the addition of Val Chmerkovskiy to the cast! Val is the younger brother of DWTS hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy. And despite the speculation that we might be getting the first same-sex couple this season, openly gay style guru Carson Kressley is paired up with a female partner.

Returning this season is three-time champ Derek Hough after taking a break last season. Derek is paired up with Ricki Lake.

Below are the full pairings for DWTS Season 13 -

  • Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus
  • Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • David Arquette and Kym Johnson
  • Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas
  • Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke
  • Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy

Meanwhile this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, who is arguably the biggest casting surprise this year, is speaking out on doing the show.

In a new interview, Nancy reveals she thought she was dreaming when she got the call from DWTS. “I feel like Cinderella that got invited to the ball. I don’t know how to dance,” Nancy, 51, states. “I don’t know what I’m going to wear, but I know I have been invited.”

Nancy adds, “I want to have fun. Ever since my fiance was killed in ’79, my whole life has been about putting bad guys away, going to law school, making law review, trying cases, representing crime victims – and this is such a departure, to get to dress up in crazy outfits and dance. Are you kidding me?!” Nancy also states she is NOT counting on Casey Anthony’s vote!

The new season of DWTS premieres Sep. 19 on ABC.

The new cast of Dancing with the Stars season 13 has been unveiled!

Following weeks of speculation, ABC officially announced the 12 latest “stars” who will be vying for the mirror ball trophy. While reports stated the network was working hard this season to get A-list celebs, it appears they fell rather short of that goal. The biggest name on the list is arguably actor David Arquette.

Other big names include this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, Cher’s transgendered son Chaz Bono, Ricki Lake, and soccer player Hope Solo.

The biggest surprise might be the addition of fashion guru Carson Kressley, who is mostly known for his role on Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The casting of Carson is quickly fueling speculation that DWTS might have its first same sex couple this season!

And unfortunately for Housewives fans, RHOBH star Kim Richards did not make the cut. It was reported days ago that Kim was on the short list to get added to the cast. Kim tweeted late yesterday, “Sadly I’m not on #DWTS this season! That would have been so fun, good luck to everyone on it! It will be an amazing journey:) goodnight all!”

The complete list of “stars” below:

David Arquette, actor
Ron Artest, NBA player
Chaz Bono, LGBT activist (son of Sonny Bono and Cher)
Elisabetta Canalis, former girlfriend of George Clooney
Kristin Cavallari, reality TV star
Nancy Grace, TV talk-show host
Rob Kardashian, reality TV star
Carson Kressley, reality TV star
Ricki Lake, actress
J.R. Martinez, war veteran and actor
Chynna Phillips, singer
Hope Solo, soccer player

The new season premieres September 19 on ABC at 8/7c.

Could Kim Richards be getting ready to put on her dancing heels? According to a new report, that answer is a strong maybe!

Celebuzz is reporting the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is in talks to join the new season of Dancing With The Stars! In fact a source close to the ABC show reveals that Kim has been practicing her moves.

Kim, aunt to Paris Hilton, has been reportedly rehearsing her moves in the studio and could be in the lineup when the cast is announced next Monday. It has been reported that ABC usually overcasts for the show just in case one of their major stars doesn’t sign on or one drops at the last minute. So it appears Kim, alongside Evelyn Lozada and others are on the short list to join the show.

Meanwhile, the latest issue of UsWeekly is reporting that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice was begging producers of the show to cast her. Wowzers.

“She begged producers,” says an insider. “But the show wants real celebrities.” Uh not exactly sure Rob Kardashian qualifies as a “real celebrity.”

Teresa tweeted her disappointment a week ago after a fan told her she should be on the show. “Would [love] to but they don’t want ‘Housewives’ this season. But Playmates are OK?” wrote Teresa.

While the new cast won’t be officially unveiled until August 29 during ABC’s Bachelor Pad, the following celebs have been confirmed to have signed on: Kristin Cavallari, Chaz Bono (Cher’s transgendered son), Rob Kardashian, and according to new reports David Arquette.

Officially out are Snooki, Queen Latifah and Mike Tyson.

According to a new report, The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari has signed on to appear on Dancing With The Stars!

Perez Hilton confirms Kirstin, who recently made headlines after being dumped by her NFL fiance Jay Cutler, will join the likes of Rob Kardashian and other rumored “stars” such as Chynna Phillips and Tiffani Thiessen on the upcoming season.

Kristin follows in the dance steps of fellow ‘The Hills’ alum Audrina Patridge, who appeared on an earlier season of the ABC hit show.

Meanwhile, days after TMZ reported Snooki and Queen Latifah had signed on for the show, Snooki aka Nicole Polizzi is now denying the story a la Queen Latifah’s earlier denial. Snooki tweeted Tuesday, “I love watching Dancing with the Stars but I am not apart of the cast ! Sorry Tweedos.”

A new report by the HollywoodLife however states this might be a negotiation ploy by the Snooks. Apparently she is still in talks to do the show but is holding out for more money.

“They are still trying to make the deal with Snooki,” dishes a source. “She was verbally in, but has yet to sign anything. She has been very concerned with the schedule and what she will be paid.”

ABC is reportedly in a rush to finalize the cast as soon as possible as the cast is being announced Aug. 29 during the Bachelor Pad. “The producers are confident that she will still join the show, but if she continues to hold out, they have people that will fill her spot. They always overcast the show,” adds the insider.

TELL US – YOU EXCITED TO WATCH KRISTIN ON DANCING WITH THE STARS?

A week after he was reported to be in talks to join Dancing With The Stars, TMZ is now confirming Rob Kardashian is officially signed on!

Multiple sources confirm to TMZ that Rob, 24, is officially on board despite concerns about the DWTS schedule conflicting with his older sister Kim Kardashian‘s big mediawhore wedding in August.

Rob has reportedly signed the dotted line for the new season which will premiere September 19. Rob won’t be the first Kardashian to compete on the show as Kimmie made it all the way to week 3 back in 2008.

Oddly enough, TMZ reported last week that the DWTS producers were working hard this season to get some real A-listers on the show, even changing their policy to a no minimum rehearsal requirement.

And it appears Jersey Shore’s Snooki might be a no go despite the report that she was also negotiating to appear on the show. Her manager issued a non-denial denial to the Rumor Fix simply stating “Not true” when asked about the DWTS rumors.

As for Rob, no word yet on what exactly makes him a “star.”

It’s that time again folks! As we near the 13th season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, the casting rumors have began!

According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, being considered for the upcoming season are reality stars Snooki and Rob Kardashian, alongside talented celebrity/singer/actress Christina Milian.

Sources reveal that Jersey Shore star Snooki, 23, is in talks to do the show! In addition to the Snooks, Kim Kardashian’s little brother Rob, 24, is also in discussions with the network. “Rob is such a low-key guy, so it would be interesting to see if he’d come out of his shell,” Kris Jenner a source says. Rob would be following in the footsteps of his sister Kimmie who did the show back in 2008 and was voted off during week 3.

As for R&B singer Christina, 29, a source says, “She’s a possibility!” Also a possibility? Boxer Mike Tyson, 45, “is being considered,” according to a second insider. Ai ya ya. Should be an interesting season!

The new season of DWTS is set to premiere September 19 on ABC.
