    Sounds like TPTB tried to get Ann Romney for next season, but she turned them down:

    Report: Ann Romney says no to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ - The TV Column - The Washington Post

    I have nothing against Ann, but I wish they'd refrain from inviting politicos from all stripes.

    I wouldn't mind Ann Romney; I actually like her and tend to find her one of the least offensive political people they could ask. But I just don't want anyone involved with politics on the show-whether it's the politican themselves, a family member, mistress, illegitmate child, whatever. The shows know what it's doing, even though they try and hide it and claim that 'these are people we can relate to and have struggles'. The only thing it relates to is the main demo watching this show in age range. That's not exactly a way to get younger viewers, which I think they need to give up.

    Some other rumors coming out:

    Katherine Webb (the current IT girl)

    Victor Ortiz (Boxer-and no boxer has ever really done well on this show that I can recall, attitude or dance wise)

    Arianna Celeste (Model & UFC ring girl)

    And, since they couldn't get Ann Romney, Teresa Heinz-Kerry is supposedly lobbying to be on the show. If they're desperate for someone in politics, they might just go for her if any of their first choices decline.

    So while TPTB are saying that they are going to still be doing 2 seasons a year, if this line up turns out to be true, they might have to settle for another ratings plunge and one season a year.

    The latest casting news off the net:

    Thank goodness she said no! I would have boycotted the season.

    You & me both!
    They've had a lot of unlikable "stars" on in the past, but this is one who just shouldn't be rewarded for her abominable behavior. Especially at the viewers expense.

    I also wouldn't have minded Ann Romney. I liked her during the election.

    I don't know why she was even considered. The girl is a train-wreck. This show ( sadly) seems to be getting very desperate.I knew Anne Romney wouldnt do it, she has MS and would tire easily

    I'm wondering if they should consider doing shorter seasons with smaller casts. This way they might snag a better class of celebrity, since the amount of time they would need to commit would be shorter.

    It would also make it easier for them to do 2 seasons a year again. And it gives ABC more flexibility with their time slot to try new shows during the off-seasons.

    The only problem with that is that a shorter season won't give the "stars" as much time to become proficient dancers. Watching that is one of the most fun parts about the show.

    They just may be running out of willing contestants. Sooner or later the well will run dry.

    I decided to come up with a cast list that I would enjoy watching next season. None of the "stars" are such A listers that they would be unacheivable. All are fit enough that they might not embarass themselves on the dance floor. No polarizing figures need apply. Here is my list:

    TV Star, Male - Neil Patrick Harris
    TV Star, Female - Emmy Rossum
    Movie Star, Male - Joseph Gordon Levitt
    Movie Star, Female - Cobie Smulders
    Olympic Athlete, Male - Ryan Lochte
    Olympic Athlete, Female - Nasita Luikin
    NFL Player - Barry Sanders
    Supermodel - Kate Upton
    Pop Singer, Male - Enrique Iglesias
    Pop Singer, Female - Jennifer Hudson
    Talk Show Host - Ellen DeGeneres
    Las Vegas Celeb - Terry Fator
    Reality Star - NOBODY
    Disney Kid - NOBODY
    Politico - NOBODY

    This for me would be a fun season to watch.

    Asking Lohan to participate right now is pretty low.

    I would love to see Jessie Tyler Ferguson. I have a crush on him ( and yes, I know he is gay) but he loves dance! he's so good on SYTYCD. If he doesnt dance, he could judge.
