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.”
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.
Maksleft the show in season 18 after a difficult season and amid rumors that he was tired of favoritism on the show. His brother has consistently remained a pro and it is Val Chmerkovskiy whom we have to thank for convincing ‘The Hotness’ to make his comeback, and also for Maks being in the best shape of his life. C’mon Season 23 – get here quick for the shirtless Maks dances!
IsLove & Hip Hop Atlanta'sK. Michelle trading tax liens for bottles..and not the kind her pal–and my eye candy–Ryan Lochte likes to pop?!? Word on the street (and by street, I mean the gossip from a source that "sometimes" tends to "exaggerate") is that the singer and reality star is preggo.
This comes on the news of K. Michelleowing a hefty chunk of change to Uncle Sam to the tune of over $52,000.00. I hope she knows that babies are expensive!
Cosmo: What are we going to see you doing on your new show?
Ryan Lochte: My biggest passion is swimming but it’s a sport that doesn’t really get talked about until the Olympics, unlike baseball, football, and basketball, which are on TV all the time. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do this show. I want people to enjoy the sport as much as I do. My whole family swims! You can pretty much say chlorine runs in our veins.
