The Official Dancing with the Stars 8 Cast

Dancing with the Stars

The official lineup for was announced tonight during ABC’s Sunday lineup.

And while tabloids have leaked erroneous names over the past few years, it appears they’ve rounded up better sources this time around. It also turns out that Donny Osmond wasn’t lying when he said he was lying about competing. (Get that?)

For the show’s eighth installment, we’ll once again start off with an uneven 13 contestants. (This meant a Week 1 double-elimination last fall.) We’ll also see the series’ youngest performer to date. (Even younger than Season 7’s Cody Linley.) You can check out the full list of names after the jump.

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?

The Latest Dancing with the Stars Rumors

Denise RichardsTy Murray and Jewel

Since our last report two weeks ago, the latest Dancing with the Stars rumors have been dished out a rapid pace. And we still have another two weeks to go until the final cast is announced!

According to TMZ, Toni Braxton will be one of the competitors hitting the floor this fall. If the buzz is true, this decision would be very interesting considering the singer’s recent issues. Braxton was forced to cancel her Las Vegas show back in May citing health reasons. (While the specific problem was not revealed, Toni has been treated for hypertension and pericarditis in the past.)

How to Look Good Naked

(You can view TV Envy’s Summer Television Programming Schedule here.)


MONDAY (7/21)
  • High School Musical: Get in the Picture (ABC, 8pm): Monday premiere. “The East Coast auditions progress to the semifinal and final rounds.” If I can be guaranteed shed tears, I just might be interested in watching this.
  • Take Home Nanny (TLC, 8pm):  Series premiere. “Emma helps a mom with two demanding daughters and a workaholic husband.”  Emma’s other job? Manufacturing fake IDs.
  • Wanna Bet? (ABC, 9pm):  Series premiere. “Celebrities wager on ordinary people’s abilities to perform wild stunts. Tom Green, Sherri Shepherd, George Takei and Harland Williams are the judges in the opener.” If Tom Green had placed a bet on Drew Barrymore’s latest relationship, I’m sure he would have made a ton.
  • Date My Ex: Jo & Slade (Bravo, 10pm):  Series premiere. “Jo De La Rosa, of The Real Housewives of Orange County, begins her quest to find a love match by sizing up her various suitors. Helping her weed out the contestants: ex-flame Slade Smiley.” At this point, anyone not named Slade Smiley would be an upgrade.

(You can view TV Envy’s Summer Television Programming Schedule here.)


MONDAY (6/2)
  • Instant Star (The N, 8pm EST): Season premiere. “Jude distracts herself with work on her third album in an attempt to avoid choosing between Jamie and Tommy.” Someone who chooses to work because of men? That’s unheard of!
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  “Eleven of the bachelors find themselves backstage at Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, where they show off their ‘Ellen’ boxer shorts.” Okay, I’m confused. Who exactly are they trying to impress?
  • Legally Blonde the Musical: The Search for Elle Woods (MTV, 10pm): Series premiere. I do hope these girls realize there’s no at the end of this tunnel.
  • The Mole (ABC, 10pm): Series return. “The fifth season kicks off with one of the contestants ends up stranded alone on a deserted beach.” WARNING: Fake idol useless on this show.

Ben on Lost

(You can view TV Envy’s Summer Television Programming Schedule here.)


MONDAY (5/26)
  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “A tree climber tries to rise above a SWAT officer.” If tree boy gets a chance at the wall, his opponent will have no choice but to gas him.
  • Flavor of Love 3 (VH1, 9pm):  “The cast of Season 3 reunites.” I often wonder what a sober Brigitte Nielsen thinks about this.
  • Denise Richards: It’s Complicated (E!, 10pm):  “Denise goes on a blind date with a so-called regular guy.” When you’re getting alimony and child support from your celebrity ex, you can afford to go out with “regular guys”.
  • Living Lohan (E!, 10:30):  The title of the tonight’s premiere is “Mommy Will Fix It.” I hope she’s referring to Ali’s hair.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, Video,

The same man who helped create is now responsible for another stellar production.  At the end of this month, Ryan Seacrest and E! will introduce their latest gem: Denise Richards: It’s Complicated.

Here is how the cable network describes the former Bond girl’s project:

“Opening up her life for the first time Denise Richards lays it all on the line. Follow the high-profile star as she navigates Hollywood, romance and motherhood after a tumultuous year in the tabloids.”

Now who’s going to follow me as I try to navigate this contrived mess?  (Note to Seacrest:  Stick to hosting.)

Complicated premieres May 26 right before the debut of Living Lohan.
