Queen Latifah Set To Join “Dancing With The Stars”

Queen Latifah is taking her dancing feet to next season’s “Dancing With The Stars”. According to TMZ, the contract is being finalized. Most believe that the show is for D-list celebrities but I don’t feel that way.

When Queen Latifah hits the stage I’m quite sure she’s going to bring the flavor. The show’s next season will also include Rob Kardashian, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, and maybe, just may Snooki.

Will you be watching this season??


And The Winner Is: Hines Ward & Kym Johnson Win “Dancing With The Stars”

This season on “Dancing With The Stars” the mirror ball trophy was awarded to Hines Ward and Kym Johnson. The two looked absolutely elated about their win, Kym says,

“Oh my gosh, it’s just incredible. I feel so proud of Hines

And although Hines says he was skeptical about his dance moves during the competition can now pridefully know he has what it takes,

“I’ve got every episode and I’m going to go home and play it and re-play it,” he said. “It’s just phenomenal. I didn’t want to let Kym down all season because I really wanted her to win her second mirror ball trophy. I hope I represented well and held up my end of the bargain.”

Well he sure did and I think they deserved it. Congrats to both of them.

Wendy Williams Gets Voted Off "Dancing With The Stars"

The inevitable has come and TV show host and gossiper extraordinaire Wendy Williams has been kicked off “Dancing With The Stars”. Wendy and her partner Tony Dovolani came in last on the last episode and from watching from their the first night the lack of rhythm and it factor from Wendy was definitely missing. Everyone expected that big personality she has to be relayed over into her dancing but in the end she failed to deliver.

She recently tweeted a big of her foot injury which looked well like this,

Pure hot mess right?! Wendy thanked the judges for the opportunity and teaching her how to dance and said,

“Despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can’t even do the running man,”

And I believe her, well farewell Wendy!

Chris Brown Has A Great Performance On "Dancing With The Stars"

Chris Brown had an awesome performance on “Dancing With The Stars”. After taking the number one spot with his album F.A.M.E. and literally working his way back up from the bottom there is no doubt that Chris is a great performer. From the dancing to the wardrobe, you wanted to see it. I was pulled in and dancing right along when I watched the performance.

But everybody will not feel the way I do as the hosts Tom Bergeron and Cheryl Burke of the show are honest with their feelings and said the following regarding Chris,

“I did tell the producers it may be to their advantage to not have me interview him,” Bergeron told Ryan Seacrest, while Burke added, “As a victim of domestic violence, I don’t agree with him coming on the show, but it’s out of my control.”

Video: Romeo and Wendy Williams Make "Dancing With the Stars" Debut

Last night was the premiere of Season 12 “Dancing With the Stars” and the whole world was watching. The two contestants I looked most forward to seeing were Romeo Miller (son of Master P) and talk show host Wendy Williams (How you doin’). I was interested to see if Romeo could beat his father’s record for lowest scores on the show EVER…and he did. The judges noted the great chemistry he has with his partner Chelsea and say that he has tons of potential. I have to agree. He was lookin’ real sexy in those dancing pants.

Wendy Williams also made her debut with the cha-cha and did an alright job. She needs to get over her timidness (who knew?) and get better footwork. Her song choice was perfect; “I’m Every Woman”….because that’s a whole lot of woman. I love her partner, Tony; he’s adorable. Check the debuts of both Romeo and Wendy below:

New "Dancing with the Stars" Cast Revealed!

I love this show and by the looks of the cast, it’s sure to be an exciting one!!! Check out the cast descriptions courtesy of MTV:

Chris Jericho
Jericho, born Christopher Irvine, is very well known to the world of professional wrestling fans. The 40-year-old was the first undisputed champion of the WWE in December 2001 (he beat Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Rock) but put his career on hold recently to focus more on his other passion project, performing as lead singer of heavy-metal band Fozzy.

Romeo
Although originally signed up to strut his stuff on season two, Romeo was replaced at the last minute by his equally famous poppa, Master P (whose turn on “DWTS” has been touted by many critics and followers as one of the worst in the show’s history; his Paso Doble holds the record for the lowest score ever). With the bar set slightly lower than average, the 21-year-old rapper, who once played college basketball for USC, likely hopes to make it farther than his father.

Kendra Wilkinson
The decidedly un-shy, already established reality TV star Wilkinson is no stranger to performing or baring all in front of audiences. Wilkinson, who got her start as a Playboy model, ventured into television as a part of E!’s “The Girls Next Door” before slightly tempering her party-girl ways to settle down with NFL player Hank Baskett, their domestic bliss being the subject of her current show, “Kendra: Bunny Next Door.”

Kirstie Alley
Before she was the subject of her own reality show, “Kirstie Alley’s Big Life,” first on A&E and now Lifetime, and a Jenny Craig spokeswoman, Alley was known to several generations of TV watchers and filmgoers for her memorable turns on TV shows “Cheers” and “Veronica’s Closet” and movies like “Look Who’s Talking.” The outspoken celeb is a longtime “DWTS” fan, whose entertaining and varied tweets have been featured frequently in our Twitterwood column on MTV Movies Blog.

Wendy Williams
The self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” made a name for herself as a radio DJ then became a best-selling author and currently hosts her own syndicated daytime talk show called “The Wendy Williams Show.”Williams has a knack for asking uncomfortable questions during celebrity interviews and will certainly be a force to be reckoned with on the dance floor. Her talk show is reportedly scheduled to go on hiatus while she competes on the show.

Chelsea Kane
As has been the custom over the course of the past few seasons, the “DWTS” team has welcomed another Disney star into their midst, Chelsea Kane (formerly known as Chelsea Staub, Kane legally changed her professional name back in December). The 22-year-old was a regular on Disney’s “JONAS,” starring the Jonas Brothers, and currently lends her voice to the character Bea on the animated series “Fish Hooks.”

Sugar Ray Leonard
Leonard, a former professional boxer, follows in the footsteps of a slew of former professional athletes who have danced before him. While athletes have been formidable competitors in “DWTS” seasons past, the boxers haven’t fared quite as well. The 54-year-old’s illustrious career includes winning world titles in five weight divisions, including the welterweight champion of the world, as well as being the first boxer to earn more than $100 million in total purse winnings. Here’s hoping Leonard’s footwork is more like that of Laila Ali than Evander Holyfield and Floyd Mayweather.

Ralph Macchio
Although he’s had a few memorable parts on TV shows like “Entourage” and “Ugly Betty,” for a lot of people, Macchio will always and forever be the original “Karate Kid.” Sure, Jaden Smith karate-chopped his way to box-office success with his turn in 2010’s remake, but Macchio kicked his way into the hearts of teenage girls everywhere with 1984’s “The Karate Kid” and subsequent sequels.

Hines Ward
They’re certainly not skimping on the athletes this season! Ward joins the cast as one of three professional athletes competing for the famed discoball trophy. The onetime Super Bowl MVP currently plays wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers and was born in Seoul, South Korea. In September of last year, President Barack Obama appointed him a member of the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

Petra Nemcova
This Czechoslovakian beauty is a supermodel with a big heart. The 31-year-old was one of hundreds of thousands of people caught in the devastating South Asian tsunami in 2004, which killed 250,000 people in 14 countries, including Nemcova’s boyfriend at the time, Simon Atlee. When Nemcova visited the site of the tsunami several months later, she was unsatisfied with the structure of how charitable donations benefit those living in states of emergency, so she created the Happy Hearts Fund to help children in post-disaster areas in eight countries: Haiti, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Hurricane Katrina-affected areas of the United States.

Mike Catherwood
While most TV watchers are familiar with Dr. Drew from his various VH1 shows, his “Loveline” radio partner, Mike Catherwood, might not be as well-known. Catherwood, also known as Psycho Mike, has co-hosted the syndicated radio show for a year now, following Adam Carolla’s exit back in 2005. The muscly radio host — who also works on Los Angeles’ “Kevin & Bean Show” — recently made a memorable appearance filling in for Regis Philbin on “Live With Regis & Kelly.” We’ll see if his smooth-talking skills and time in the gym translate to a successful “DWTS” run.

Wendy Williams Joins "Dancing With The Stars"

Wendy Williams has confirmed that she will be joining season 12 of “Dancing With The Stars”. It is said that Wendy will be putting her show on hiatus for the time being and sashaying across the stage to show what she’s working with. At 5’11 she will need a partner that measures up. Wendy is always talking about who was on the show and what she thought of their performance. Sometimes her ratings are good and other times not so much, but now the shoe is on the other foot.

Do we think Wendy will do a good job on “Dancing With The Stars”? Time will tell.
