The Latest Dancing with the Stars 8 Casting Rumors


Later this weekend, viewers of ABC’s Sunday night programming will be the first to learn the network’s biggest casting secret. That’s when the lineup for Dancing with the Stars 8 will finally be announced.

Despite some erroneous (and a few accurate) rumors over the past few years, the tabloids haven’t stopped speculating over the highly-anticipated lineups. Although Kim Kardashian, Lance Bass and Toni Braxton were correctly guessed last season, Paula Abdul Ty Murray were not.

So far, we’ve already heard Donny Osmond announce, then deny, that he would be competing this March. We’ve also learned that Cindy McCain was interested but that Kevin Federline wasn’t. Who else is reportedly in the wings?

Jewel:  Weirdly enough, the singer was also rumored to be on the previous list as well. Let’s see if she and/or her cowboy hubby make the cut this time around.

Denise Richards: She, too, was supposedly in contention for Season 7. Would the DWTS’ producers really resort to their previous backup lists?

Steve-O: Several sites claim the Jackass star will make a fool of himself in another format. Let’s hope he sticks to nailing his routines rather than his neighbor’s walls.

Lawrence Taylor: Ashton Kutcher recently hinted on his Twitter feed that the NFL Hall of Famer may be the season’s requisite football star. Maybe he knows something we don’t.

Dancing with the Stars 8 officially premieres Monday, March 9 @ 8:00.
