Welcome back, Dancing with the Stars fans!  Lots of news and excitement building both for news and for the show to return.



  1. “Property Brothers’” real-estate expert Drew Scott & pro/reigning Mirrorball champ Emma Slater (won with NFL star Rashad Jennings last season): Confirmed to you earlier this week.  Reminder: Emma just finished the Hot Summer Nights tour two weeks ago, so I don’t see how she could have had much time with him yet.
  2. Singer/Actor Nick Lachey & pro Peta Murgatroyd: Confirmed to you earlier this week.
  3. Vanessa (Minillo) Lachey & pro Maks Chmerkovskiy: Confirmed to you earlier this week.
  4. WWE Wrestler Nikki Bella & pro Artem Chigvintsev: Confirmed to you last week.
  5. Actor/Singer/Dancer Jordan Fisher (Disney & “Hamilton”) & pro Lindsay Arnold.
  6. Former NBA champ/ former Knick’s Coach Derek Fisher, who might end up with pro Sharna Burgess.
  7. Former Paralympic Swimmer Victoria Arlen & pro Val Chmerkovskiy.
  8. Actor Frankie Munizare (formerly ‘Malcom’ on “Malcolm in the Middle”) & pro Witney Carson.
  9. Violinist Lindsey Stirling (& which male pro?)

While certain pros are very competitive, it’s all in fun, family and friendship.  Mark Ballas says it’s really just about doing their best for their Dancing with the Stars celeb partners—their job, after all.


  1. Disney Star Actor Cameron Boyce.
  2. Businesswoman Barbara Concoran, longtime investor on “Shark Tank.” “Sharks” Mark Cuban (first) and Robert Herjavec preceded her.
  3. Singer Bobby Brown (husband of deceased songstress Whitney Houston). Supposedly, he was in, but late in the game he suddenly left the lineup.

IN OTHER DANCE NEWS:  Pros Jenna Johnson and Allison Holker are still in the running to win SYTYCD.  When Jenna returns to Dancing with the Stars, she’ll be in the troupe.  Allison will not be an active pro this season unless another female pro ends up having to bow out.

MORE NEWS with the full Dancing with the Stars cast reveal on GMA Wednesday, September 6—and maybe before then with snippets.  See you again very soon!
