The network won’t comment on any details until they’ve made their official group announcement, but we’re starting to get a pretty good of how the season will look.
And it’s looking pretty good.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino
Per usual, all parties involved are keeping mum on the matter, but the current season of “The Jersey Shore” has created something of a perfect storm of Situation-related publicity. So in addition to the fact that multiple outlets claim his involvement is a go, it just sort of makes sense.
File this one under ‘things that make perfect sense.’ US reports that the recently roasted “Baywatch” star is a go for “DWTS.” The series could certainly do worse, and this is just the kind of attention the showman craves. He might even be sort of great.
As we reported, the ink is dry on Audrina Patridge’s contract. The lucky lady who holds the honor of appearing in more episodes of “The Hills” than anyone else will indeed dance in the upcoming season — but will her soft spokenness register with the older-skewing audience? We’re already having trouble hearing her.
In other seasons, Brandy’s rumored inclusion might have garnered more headlines, but she’s up against some stiff competition in the celebrity department. The latest update has her still in negotiations, but it seems like a safe bet.
No, this is not a mistake, and the “Cheers” star is not actually going out for “Dance Your Ass Off.” In Touch reports Alley will be one of the names called during the announcement. And though it seems like the perfect move for her, we’ll remain cautiously skeptical until we actually see her twirling on the dance floor.
They can’t all be exciting folks. Radar reports that Bolton has been in negotiations for months and will likely sign before the week is out. May we be the first to predict he becomes romantically involved with his partner?
No self-respecting “DWTS” cast works without a slightly loony senior gal, and since Betty White is too busy and Cloris Leachman has already done it, Mama Brady seems like an ideal choice. Star reports she’s already signed on.
Star also has “Dirty Dancing” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” Jennifer Grey joining the cast, which seems odd, considering the entire world has already watched her learn how to dance once before. Let the ‘Nobody puts baby in a corner’ jokes begin.
Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez
ABC likes to keep things in the family, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the happy “Bachelorette” couple were included in the new cast — but it may not be in the cards. Multiple outlets have them out of the running.
So what do you think — is there anyone in particular you’d like to see rounding out the cast if these end up panning out?
