Dancing With The Stars

The 11th season of the hit series Dancing With The Stars is set to premiere tonight on ABC!

So what can we expect during the 2-hour premiere? TMZ is reporting that the most shocking performance will come from teen mom Bristol Palin and her partner Mark Ballas, as the two will dance the Cha Cha Cha to “Mama Told Me (Not to Come).” Bristol will reportedly rip off some “tear-away clothes” during the performance.

It gets even better as TMZ also confirms Bristol’s mom Sarah Palin will be in the audience tonight. Sources tell TMZ security has been heightened at CBS Television City in LA, the place where DWTS is broadcast.

In other DWTS news, Brandy and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy are said to be the ones to beat, while The Situation is at the biggest disadvantage, as his competitors were able to get in two extra weeks of practice, while he was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore.

DWTS 11 premieres tonight at 8/7c on ABC.

Jersey Shore GQ Makeover

The fellas of Jersey Shore get unguidofied in the latest issue of GQ.

Since the Jersey Shore guys take a lot of pride in their GTL rituals aka Gym Tan Laundry, the folks at GQ decided to address the gym “situation” by providing them with some simplified sportswear.

Above is a after shot following the makeover for Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Vinny Guadagnino. The guys also did a Q & A with GQ, excerpts below -

GQ: What about using personal trainers? Yes or no?
Vinny: I used to be a trainer, and 90 percent of the people who use trainers are women and old people. But it can be good—I used to train other trainers sometimes.
DJ Pauly D: Sometimes I look at the trainers at the gym, and I look better than them. I’m not gonna take advice from somebody who doesn’t look better than me, bro. Mike, I don’t really have a six-pack. Should I be crying in my beer about it?
The Situation: Nah. Be confident in what you got.

GQ: What’s the best body-related compliment you’ve gotten from a girl?
Vinny: I’m not that big next to these guys, but—
Ronnie: It’s more about the mind-body connection with Vinny.
The Situation: It’s more about the pushin’.

Following the Monday night announcement of the dull cast of Dancing With The Stars, ABC is now revealing the professional/celebrity pairings!

The most talked about “star” this season is Jersey Shore break out star The Situation, who will be paired off with pro dancer Karina Smirnoff.

This marks Karina’s return to the show since her last appearance on season 9. Also returning this season is Karina’s ex-fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy who is paired up with Singer/Actress Brandy.

And while the 11th season doesn’t premiere until Sept. 20, Bristol Palin is already bringing the lols as she tells PEOPLE magazine she will be wearing modest outfits on the show. “I think I will be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that’s who I am,” said Bristol. Allrighty then.

Below is the full list of the celebrities and their partners.

  • Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower
  • Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel
  • Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke
  • Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough
  • David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnso
  • Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas
  • Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas
  • Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani
  • Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff
  • Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya

TELL US – WHO DO YOU PREDICT WILL BE GOING HOME FIRST?

After weeks of speculation, the ABC network finally unveiled the new cast of Dancing With The Stars last night.

The big reveal, done press conference style, was however a tad uneventful as the names of 11 of the 12 cast members had already leaked thanks to multiple media outlets. The only star who’s name was not leaked? Turned out to be Disney actor Kyle Massey. Kyle starred on Disney’s hit show That’s So Raven, which might or might not be one of the best shows in Disney’s history.

And despite the rumors she started herself on twitter, Teresa Giudice is not a part of the cast. No Bravo reality star is a part of the cast, though we still think throwing a housewife into the mix would have been genius.

So the official DWTS 11 cast includes Brandy; Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey; Comedian Margaret Cho; The Hills alum Audrina Patridge; Florence Henderson; Bristol Palin, Michael Bolton; Jersey Shore‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino; David Hasselhoff; NBA champion Rick Fox; NFL quarterback Kurt Warner; & Disney star Kyle Massey.

ABC will officially reveal the professional partners of the stars tomorrow. It is rumored that Karina Smirnoff will be partnered up with The Situation, while Florence Henderson will be partnered with Corky Ballas.

Bristol Palin appeared on GMA today with her partner Mark Ballas (let the romance rumors begin!) “I just wanted to do it because it’s so fun,” she told UsWeekly at a DWTS press conference Monday night. “It’s positive and it’s a good competition. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and have a good time.”

As for her famous mom Sarah Palin, Bristol reveals she is very supportive. “She’s always been my No. 1 fan,” said Bristol, 19. “Of course, she’ll be down here [cheering me on].”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE NEW CAST OF DWTS? BETTER THAN LAST SEASON?

While Bravo has reportedly invited all of the Real Housewives of New York City, excluding Jennifer Gilbert, back for a 4th season, it seems the housewives are a bit reluctant to sign the dotted line.

The NYPost is reporting that ladies are banding together, refusing to sign a new contract with the network unless they get more money. Jersey Shore money to be exact.

See, the Post states the ladies are earning a mere $4,000 per episode for their show, while MTV reality star Snooki earns $30,000 per episode on the Jersey Shore hit show.

They’ve got a lot more to say,” Jill Zarin a source close to the Housewives tells the Post, adding that the ladies “have little choice but to pimp themselves out with side gigs to bump up their earnings.”

“It’s a full-time job without the full-time pay,” a second source says. “That’s why a reality star with any sense does a book line or jewelry line to support being on the show.”

Well let’s examine things to see if the NYC ladies really deserve more money. The show averaged 2 million viewers per episode last season, while the Jersey Shore’s current season is averaging 5 million viewers. So simple calculation shows that solely based on the ratings, the ladies should be earning at least $12,000 per episode. Oddly enough, the Jersey Shore cast and the Real Housewives of NYC cast have about the same number of cast members.

Also, it is likely that Bethenny Frankel is not involved in this negotiation process with the other housewives. With the success of her spin off show, there’s a good chance her negotiations is being done solo and she will likely earn more money than her co-stars if and when she returns to the show. For example, TMZ reported Jersey Shore’s The Situation is earning $60,00o per episode on the show, way more than all of his other co-stars.

Levi JohnstonBristol Palin

Buckle up folks, it seems we have us an all new Jon Gosselin/Kate Gosselin 2.0.

Just a day after E! Online broke the news of Bristol Palin joining the cast of Dancing With The Stars, Bristol’s baby daddy/2x former fiance/Playgirl model Levi Johnston is now adding his own 2 cents to the news.

Levi, 20, appeared on CBS’ “The Early Show” this morning and spoke about Bristol and his mayoral race. Yes, he’s planning to run for mayor in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

See, Bristol, 19, has criticized Levi for being obsessed with fame in the past, even citing that as the reason she ended their second engagement. So upon hearing the news that Bristol will be a contestant on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars,” Levi stated, “I don’t think I’m any more obsessed with making a career out of this than she is.”

He added, “Obviously she’s doing Dancing with the Stars. I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with any of it. I’m just taking it as it comes.” Bristol has also previously appeared on an episode of ABC’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”

Popeater is also reporting today that a source close to Bristol tells them she “is excited and scared and hopes she gets Maksim Chmerkovskiy as her partner.”

In other DWTS related news, more names continue to leak out before the official Monday announcement from ABC. E! News is reporting today that Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson, Singer Michael Bolton, former NBA Player Rick Fox, and Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey have all been added to the cast.

The above stars join the previously confirmed Brandy, The Situation, Audrina Patridge, and David Hasselhoff.

E! also confirms the following stars will not be a part of the upcoming season – Kirstie Alley, Landon Donovan, Troy Aikman, or anyone for the Bachelor(ette) franchise.

And just like that, it seems Dancing With The Stars has found a way to top their last season casting of Kate Gosselin.

E! Online is breaking the news today and confirming that Bristol Palin, daughter of former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, has joined the cast of DWTS.

E! adds that this will be the second time the 19-year-old has appeared on an ABC show, as she also guest starred last month on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Also confirmed for the new season of DWTS are David Hasselhoff, Audrina Patridge, The Situation and Brandy.

Likely not appearing on this season are Kirstie Alley, and Bachelorette stars Ali & Roberto, “unless there are a few last-minute switcheroos,” says E!.

A rep for ABC had the following to say regarding the news: “We don’t comment on casting rumors. The real Dancing With the Stars cast will be revealed Monday, Aug. 30, live on ABC during Bachelor Pad.”

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.
