    Hmm.


    OMG! You all know how much I love Maks and this show but - I WILL NOT WATCH IF THAT BEYOTCH IS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really think it would be a BIG mistake for them to bring her on. She is an ugly and vile person and most of the Bachelor viewers hated her. Big mistake - big big mistake!!!!

    Good grief, not Melissa Rycroft 2.0! Just when I thought we would finally have a reality-free DWTS. I do not like Sherri Shepherd, but at least she has the creditials of a successful comedian and actress. If this turns out to be fact, I will be watching with remote in hand and sympathy for whichever pro would be her partner.

    I had read the Courtney article yesterday and thought NO WAY! She was "the woman America loved to hate" per Chris Harrison. Melissa was a little different because she got her widdle heart broken on TV, people felt sorry for her/pitied her. Courtney was portrayed as a manipulative, scheming mean girl. She'd last one week. People who don't watch the Bachelor couldn't care less who she is, Bachelor fans (except a few) wouldn't be voting for her.

    Kara, is Dimitry tall enough? Or another guy in the troupe? If they really were to cast her, which I doubt, they could find someone.

    Personally, I think that Courtney is being used by the ABC publicity machine. People will be watching the premiere episode to find out whether she is on or not.
    Well, here's the latest: Courtney will not be joining the show. So stay tuned!

    What bothers me is 'you have to tune in on the 19th' comments coming from her and ABC. Why not just deny it upfront and say 'hey, guess what, we announced out cast weeks ago'. What's funny about Dmitry is that he claimed he was supposed to take part this season, but his partner wound up dropping out. In the past, celebs come and go before anything's official, and usually they get a pro lined up for them. So if they wanted Dmitry back bad enough, why not just partner him with someone else? There was speculation that TPTB planned on having Courtney or one of the other bachelor girls on the show, and that they backed out due to the publicity of the show (if Courtney is as bad as I've read, I guess even bad publicity was too much for her). Also, I think there's a difference between "love to hate" and just plain hate. It seems the sentiment about Courtney falls into the latter. Dmitry is one of the tallest, if not the tallest, male pros, so I think he could partner Courtney. The troupe is all on the shorter side, so I don't think any of them would work. There seems to be very little buzz about this season; this so-called "cheating" controversy about Sherri and Val in the days leading up to the premiere is the best they can do. Maybe they'll just let the Courtney rumor run and pretend she's being added, then have Tom drop some other bombshell that isn't quite as controversial or noteworthy.

    ^^^ The original story came from TMZ ... that DWTS was in negotiations with her. Her FB comment came after the TMZ story ran.

    And apparently, her FB page has been confirmed as hers. So, who knows.

    Whether you like her or not, I don't think many people would argue that Melissa has much of anything in common with Courtney, beyond that awful show. Although I liked Melissa (and was happy to see Tony go so far in the competition), I understand that a lot of people found her perkiness irritating. Courtney is just a straight up bitch with a bland personality.

    I'd be perfectly happy to see Sherri replaced (she annoys the hell out of me), but I definitely don't want to even think that they could replace her with Courtney. If she does end up as a last minute add-on, I can't imagine that she'll last long - maybe a week or two. There are other attractive women to satisfy the voters and they all have better personalities.

    Hi. But is it her FB page, there are 5 on there. ( or there were) they all have photos .For all we know, it could be ABC themselves that has that page, the one that says wait and see.
    Ben had three or four, and only one was right, the Constantine was following But most people went to the very BIG page with lots of people. So its easy to be fooled on there

    If Sherri did something wrong, and its a big IF then she should own it.

    There was a twitter siting with photo of Courtney walking on a city street with Ben yesterday. IF she were lined up for this season of DWTS she would have been in rehearsal and not strolling down a street.
