Dancing With The Stars Cast Revealed on 2/26 plus Casting Rumors!

ABC has announced that the Dancing with the Stars 16 cast will be revealed on February 26 during Good Morning America. The “stars” professional partners will also be revealed at that time.

The reality competition will feature 12 “celebrities” who are all DWTS newbies. After last season’s All-Star cycle garnered disappointing ratings, down’t expect your favorite celebs to return to the dance floor any time soon.

In the meantime, USA Today is reporting a few rumors. Maybe joining the DWTS 16 cast:

  • Deena Cortese – Well, she’s been lobbying for it. That doesn’t mean much.  With the MTV show kaput, she needs a job, stat.
  • The Daily News is reporting Victor Ortiz will be in the cast.
  • The News is also reporting that ABC wants Emily Maynard (The Bachelor), Kourtney Kardashian (Ewww), and Mama June (Honey Boo Boo. Ugh.)

Actress, and professional train wreck, Lyndsey Lohan reportedly turned an offer down, but there are reports that her mother Dina is ready to put on her dancing shoes. Please Jeebus. Nooooo….

Are you excited for the next season of DWTS?

By the way. I’M STILL LOOKING FOR A REGULAR LIVE BLOGGER! Please let me know if you are interested. The new season begins on March 18.

    I know none of these people.  The ratings will never improve if they can’t find an actual star.  I mostly watch for the pros now.

    Honey Boo Boo’s mom…..oh dear.

    In my opinion, the reason the ratings have taken a hit lately is because DWTS is ignoring their core audience, which skews older.  These people don’t wallow in trash reality TV or MTV.  They need to find stars with more broad appeal and name recognition, who can dance, even if just a little.  Stop trying to stock the ballroom with 15 minutes of fame train wrecks and go after those with some class.

  • quickjessie

    Omg.  Maybe I should watch as with “stars” like this it should be the last season. 

    Honey Boo Boo?  Really?  Since I only see this sorry excuse for a show in commercials, correct me if I”m wrong but isn’t her mother morbidly obese?  Does ABC think the ratings will go up if they kill a “star” in rehearsals?

    And it seems like the rest of the supposed stars are famous for being famous reality show rejects, or being born into a fame-whore family, or related to an ex-star, and then we have the one guy I”ve never heard of. 

    Yes, brilliant casting, ABC.  Please proceed.

    Seriously.  Honey Boo Boo’s mom?  *shakes head*

    Honey Boo Boo’s mom could use the exercise.  Maybe it will be a jump start to a healthier lifestyle for her and her family.

  • Miss Chaos

    June BOO BOO lost a lot of weight didnt she?  I hope this would help her loose more.

    “Are you excited for the next season of DWTS?”

    Nope, not with those cast members. lol Any Kardashian would be enough to repel me, but Honey Boo Boo’s mom too? Yikes! It sounds like they are scraping the bottom of the barrel to get people to appear on this show.

  • IrisandLilies

    After the way the judges/the powers that be manipulated the results last season, I have absolutely no intention of watching the show this season. 

  • Larc

    Sounds as if they may have already tapped out most decent contestants who are willing to be on the show.  Getting down to the dregs now.  It boggles the mind to think who may be dancing if DWTS is still on in another couple of years.

  • Larc

    June BOO BOO lost a lot of weight didnt she?

    I think so.  Looks as if she may have dwindled down to between 300 and 350 now.  ;)

    Yes, Go Mama June!

    Sounds like a terrible season. I hope there will be better reveals than that non-sense. 

  • Linda Howard

    I’m with you – these are not “stars” – I don’t know who any of them are.

  • HopeForMusic

    I haven’t heard of any of them either.  If Honey Boo Boo’s mother is on, this will be my first season not to watch at least some of it.  The second hand embarassment would be just too much.  I just can’t wrap my head around people like that. 

     Also, if that is the type of stars they are casting, there will be zero possibility of anyone with any self respect appearing ever again.

  • breakdown

    The rumors don’t sound very promising. :(

  • ReneeinCA

    Probably time for Julianne Hough to return as a celebrity, since with her film credits she is now more famous than anyone but the Kardashian…

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    I do miss Julianne, but she wouldn’t return unless she is paired with a real star!  DWTS use to be don’t miss TV, but their best seasons are behind them!

  • Miz

    The ones I know of are ‘do not want’ and the ones I don’t are ?????? If these rumors are correct then it sounds like it will be a terrible show.

    It looks like the show has decided to cut it’s feel good roots and go totally tabloid.  While this may mean higher ratings for a bit, it will kill their chances to get a real star (or star past their prime) in the future.
