    Nickelodeon star JoJo Siwa — who came out as part of the LGBTQ community in January — will make history as the first “Dancing With the Stars” contestant to be matched with a same-sex partner, ABC announced in a social media post promoting the show’s 30th season. “I am so excited to be a part of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ Season 30, and to be dancing with a girl,” Siwa, 18, said in the promo clip. “I think it’s so cool.” Jojo’s partner will be announced during the show’s season premiere. The American series will be following in the footsteps...

    This is next-level fierce: Dancing With the Stars has tapped Tyra Banks to replace Tom Bergeron as host. The announcement comes roughly 36 hours after ABC confirmed the departures of the ABC dance competition’s longtime host Bergeron as well as co-host Erin Andrews. Banks’ reign will begin with Season 29, slated to bow this fall (view ABC’s complete fall lineup here). In a statement, the erstwhile America’s Top Model host said, “I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning. The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances. It’s always transported...
  • Sean Spicer on ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars' is a slap in the face to every American he lied to

    NBC News ^ | By Kurt Bardella, NBC News THINK contributor
    On Wednesday morning, ABC rewarded former White House press secretary Sean Spicer with a spot on the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Making the announcement on ABC’s flagship program, “Good Morning America,” Spicer waved to the live studio audience from behind a prop podium. The dancing competition has long been a popular place for washed up celebrities looking to rehabilitate or pump up their image. But Spicer shouldn’t get that chance — and he certainly doesn’t deserve it. More than halfway into this White House’s train wreck of a tenure, flagrant lying and attacks on the free press...
  • ABC Tries To Recruit Hillary For ‘Dancing With the Stars’

    Hillary Clinton was reportedly asked to compete on the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars.” US Weekly reports: For Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the mirrorball trophy is no consolation prize. In the new issue of Us Weekly, a Dancing With the Stars source reveals producers asked the 69-year-old politician if she would be interested in strutting her stuff on season 24 of the ABC ballroom competition.

    Former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb is moving to New York and may appear in an upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, it emerged today. What should have been a mere 15 minutes of fame after ESPN commentator Brent Musburger momentarily fell in love with her as she watched her quarterback boyfriend play in the BSC Championships, has now turned into what could well be a promising career for the 23-year-old.

    After endless hype and a delayed premiere, Terra Nova's $20 million dollar pilot finally roared into the primetime race last night. Steven Spielberg's gorgeous, CGI series had a decent start, but couldn't beat out Two and a Half Men or Dancing with the Stars. While CBS ruled Monday night and ABC's Dancing with the Stars saw a ratings drop but stayed in second, Fox is calling Terra Nova's third place premiere a win. The action adventure series finally stomped onto screens Monday and managed to lure in around 9 million viewers with the promise of dinosaurs, time travel and family...

    Ok, I gotta admit, this really took me by surprise. I really didn't just fall of the turnip truck and know all too well that bigotry, stupidity and rank ignorance not only still exist in 21st century USA, but fester in every state of the union. But the reaction that ABC got when it announced that Chaz Bono would be among the celebrities on the new "Dancing With the Stars" season had my jaw dropping to the floor. Homophobia itself is ugly and uninformed, of course, but those who spew anti-gay epithets often do so because they believe sexual orientation...

    Former Senate candidate and tea party favorite Christine O’Donnell will not be donning a leotard anytime soon. The Republican announced Monday night that she has declined an invitation to samba with celebrities on “Dancing With the Stars.” The Delaware Republican said in a statement that she finds the ABC show to be “one of the few uplifting TV shows out there.” But she’s choosing instead to finish her book on the 2010 election cycle and her new political action committee

    How long before the cries of “Free Bristol Palin!” begin? Margaret Cho, who briefly co-starred with Palin on this season’s “Dancing With the Stars,” blogged Monday that Bristol only did the show because Sarah Palin forced her to, part of a plan to get Americans to “fall in love with her again” in the runup to the 2012 election.
  • What's with the recent trend of tagging non-relevant articles with palin or sarahpalin?

    What's with the recent trend of tagging articles with palin or sarahpalin that have nothing to do with Sarah Palin? If your article has nothing to do with Palin, please don't tag it as such. It's bad enough that journalists use her name to get hits to their articles or as a cheap source of writing material. We don't need that attitude here too. Just because people want to increase traffic to their posts, doesn't mean they should tag their posted articles with palin or sarahpalin. This just clutters the keyword/tagging system.

    Sarah Palin was not only playing the role of proud mama grizzly last night when she sat in the front row cheering on daughter Bristol Palin in the finale of 'Dancing With The Stars' -- she was also playing casting director, lobbying the show's producers to consider signing up her Tea Party pal Christine O'Donnell for next season. "Sarah is a genius at marketing herself and her message," an insider tells me. "She doesn't care about all the old rules about how political people are meant to behave and act. Sarah believes the best way is to go directly to...

    As America and Michigan prepares to spend time with family and friends over the four-day Thanksgiving holiday, it is more than tragic than during this week leading up to the holiday, there are millions of Americans who are whining and alarmed over the growing Dancing With The Stars’ success of Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin. Instead of thanksgiving there are those who are harboring terror and threats in their hearts against Bristol. With each passing week this good natured and extremely hardworking young woman danced her way into the hearts of Americans, in spite of liberal alarmists who blamed...

    Tonight is the final chance for the three remaining contestants on "Dancing With the Stars" to impress the viewers at home. As we've seen this season in particular, high scores from the judges may be nice. But, it's the viewers who matter because their votes can make an impact. Going into tonight's season finale are Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey & Bristol Palin. Getting to this point wasn't always a smooth trip. There were some tense moments at the production office for "Dancing With the Stars." ABC says a white powder in an envelope was delivered to the office this past...

    I imagine you have already heard that a man in Wisconsin shot his television set when Bristol Palin beat out R&B singer Brandy to achieve the finals of "Dancing With the Stars." I know that in real life he is a troubled human being with a history of bipolar disorder, but I think in the make-believe world of celebrity media, he speaks for all of us. Except, of course, for all those wonderful supporters of Sarah Palin who keep voting Bristol despite her mediocre dancing. I'm sure she's a perfectly appealing 20-year-old, but she can't dance very well, and she...

    In "defiance" of "skepticism" on the part of Dancing with the Stars judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, Sarah Palin's daughter/single mother Bristol Palin is one of three dancers vying for the ultimate DWTS prize. Like Mom, Bristol ‘the pistol' sure has chutzpah. Unintimidated by pop stars or child stars, when asked to be part of the mirror globe trophy competition Bristol left fishing poles behind, packed the Pampers into her 1997 F-150, and drove non-stop from Alaska to L.A. Casting no aspersions on Bristol's competitors, Pistol Palin is the only contestant with zero experience wooing the...

    Allegedly set off by Bristol Palin’s appearance on “Dancing with the Stars,” a rural Black Earth man kept police at bay outside his home for 15 hours Monday and Tuesday before he surrendered to police. Steven N. Cowan, 66, railed at the television as the daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin appeared on the ABC program, his wife told police Monday after she fled from the town of Vermont house, according to a criminal complaint filed in Dane County Circuit Court. Cowan had also been under stress because of a financial situation and was receiving care for...
