I feel the madness rising ... DWTS Rumors

There is a rumor that Pamela Anderson is on Dancing With The Stars this season, and that she is being paired up with Maksim. The rumor, of course, comes from Maksim who I was pretty sure was going to take a season off this time around.

A few other announcements that have come out over the past couple of days:

  • Jonothan Roberts will not be back to compete this season. He says he may be on some of the performance shows.
  • Lacey Schwimmer will not be back. Aww shucks and darn. (Mrs. Angrybell will do a little happy dance to celebrate this I think).
  • It looks like Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, Edyta Sliwinska, Mark Ballas, and Chelsie Hightower will be back.
  • Tony Dovolani and Anna Trebuskya look like they are on board for this season, but they aren't saying directly that they are yet.
  • Louis Van Amstel said he was going to be back, then reversed it with a cryptic message. So he might be in, and he might not be. I guess it all depends on the height of the celebrity that they find for the show.
  • Samantha Harris is no more, alas alack. It looks like Melissa Ryecroft will be taking her place. I'm not sure I can handle that much perky. I hope Tom Bergeron can.
  • There will be at least, if the reports are correct, one new professional: Damian Whitehood. He has been on Broadway, but that's all I know of him so far.
The interesting rumor is that Cheryl Burke has been trying to get Olympic champion Evan Lysacek to come on the show as a contestant. Which does Lysacek want more, a shiny mirror-ball trophy or a medal at the World Figure Skating Championships in Torino?

Another rumored contestant for this season is Greg Louganis.

According to reports, there will only be 12 couples this season. This is probably a good thing, since the cast size was getting out of control. The question is, who will be the final professional that they bring in.
