Dancing with the Stars is the hit reality television program that airs on ABC. The newest season of the show (season 11) is set to premier in September, 2010. I think every fan of the show has speculated about what celebrities might show up in the cast. Speculating about the potential cast members is a fun thing that fans do. If you do a search on the internet for season 11 rumors you’ll find a lot of different names being mentioned as potential cast members. These people seem to fall into a few different categories – athletes, actors, musicians, television personalities, and even professional wrestlers.
Here are some of the more interesting names that have been mentioned in rumors about the cast for the newest season (season 11) of Dancing with the Stars.
Betty White – acting royalty. White has appeared on numerous television shows throughout the years and is currently starring in the situation comedy Hot in Cleveland (airing on TV Land network).
Vienna Girardi – the jilted fiancée of Bachelor Jake Pavelka. Since Pavelka got his 15 minutes of fame, why not Girardi?
Troy Aikman – retired NFL quarterback. Aikman had come out saying he was going to be part of the cast and then took it back, saying he was just kidding. Is he kidding? Who knows.
Ali Fedotowsky – the most recent Bachelorette from the ABC show of the same name. Ali might be too busy planning her wedding to Roberto to show up in the cast however.
Morgan Fairchild – 80’s television actress. Fairchild was a regular on television during the 80’s and appeared on the show Flamingo Road.
Jon Gosselin – ex-wife of Kate Gosselin. Kate showed up in the season 10 cast of Dancing with the STasr (and show up was all she did since dancing was not a strong point). This might be a case of “anything you can do, I can do better” if the rumor is true.
Lee Merriwether – Miss USA 1955 and television’s Catwoman. This multi-talented woman also starred in the 1970’s television series Barnaby Jones.
Oksana Grigorieva – ex-girlfriend of actor Mel Gibson. Grigorieva has been all over the tabloids and tabloid type news shows recently with the release of the audio tapes of her ex that don’t paint him in the best light.
Vera Wang – the superstar fashion designer. Wang is best known for her wedding gown designs, but she also has a line of clothes at Kohl’s. She has also designed costumes for figure skaters in the past (skaters such as Nancy Kerrigan, Michelle Kwan and DWTS season 10 runner up Evan Lysacek).
David Hasselhoff – actor and singer. Hasselhoff is an actor who came to fame in the 1980’s television series Knight Rider, but attained cult status with his role as lifeguard Mitch Buchannon on the syndicated television series Baywatch.
Fans will get to find out the real cast on August 30, 2010 during the ABC show Bachelor Pad. It will be interesting to see what rumors were true, and what ones were just that – rumors.
