Dancing With the Stars is set to premiere its tenth season onÂ ABC in a few short weeks and everyone is dying to know what celebrities will be hitting the dance floor. We’ve got the scoop on the latest dancing rumors that involve a Baywatch babe, a couple Olympians, and Topanga!!!
The tenth season ofÂ ABC‘sÂ Dancing With the Stars is returning on March 22nd with a new slew of celebrities (and has-beens) hitting the dance floor.Â The new cast will be announced on March 1st during the season finale ofÂ The Bachelor, but that hasn’t stopped rumors from flying about who fans can expect to see donning their dancing shoes.
According to the rumors, the most obvious shoo-in for a spot on the upcoming season ofÂ Dancing With the Stars is blonde bombshell and former Baywatch star, Pamela Anderson. A show insider reports that “Pam is thrilled and so is the show.” There seems to be some truth to this rumor since dance pro and DWTS regular,Â Maksim ChmerkovskiyÂ confirmed to InTouch that Anderson is on board.
Pamela Anderson isn’t the only former TV star reportedly in talks to star onÂ Dancing With the Stars. Apparently, Full House and ER star, John Stamos, and Boys Meets World star, Danielle Fishel are also being considered. Can fans really expect to see Uncle Jesse and Topanga strutting their stuff this season? If dancer Karina Smirnoff has her way, Stamos will definitely be a part of the cast. She recently told People thatÂ ”I am a workaholic and think he needs to dance with me. I love 12 to 14 hour days of dancing, and I want to do it with John. He could be a great dancer.”Â As for Fishel, she reportedly went straight to theÂ Dancing With the Stars producers to lobby for a spot on the show.Â ”I’ve told them really straight forwardly that I really want to do the show,” she said.
Other rumored cast members includeÂ Jon & Kate plus 8 star, Kate Gosselin who said she’d like to go onÂ Dancing With the Stars “because I cannot dance,” adding “I want to laugh at myself. It would be a sad sight.” Hip hop dancer, former Mr. Britney Spears, and contestant onÂ VH1‘s Celebrity Fit Club, Kevin Federline has also expressed interest in doing the show, although producers allegedly think he has too much professional experience.
Two Olympians have recently expressed interest in being a part ofÂ Dancing With the Stars: Diver Greg Louganis and Figure Skater Evan Lysacek. Louganis told People,Â ”I want to be on Dancing With the Stars. It would be such a blast.” Lysacek recently tweeted his interest to dancerÂ Cheryl Burke saying, “I would love to do the show. I’m a big fan!!!!”
And last but not least comes perhaps the greatest casting rumor of all: Dirty Dancing star, Jennifer Grey! The New York Post reports that Grey is in quiet talks with the show’s producers. Aside from the late Patrick Swayze himself, I can’t think of a single celebrity I’d rather see on theÂ Dancing With the Stars stage. I just hope the other contestants are ready to fight Grey for the crown because nobody puts Baby in a corner!
