National Ledger - Tom Bergeron Talks 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 10
Just a little blurb from Tom. Nothing overly juicy about the season, other than supposedly two people are already cast:
I also hope the producers realize it was more the number of people cast than the overall unknowns in the cast. I think they were counting on too many things of seasons past in terms of break out stars and personalities and others that were shocking eliminations or people who had high expectations that surprisingly fell flat. So hopefully they're not looking for the next Kelly Osbourne in addition to the next Gilles and a ringer that'll have it before the cast is announced. The overall cast, in hindsight, wasn't too bad, just too many. I also hope there's no stunt casting that the producers pass off as people you love to hate and would talk about regardless if they were cast or not and what a controversial and dramatic twist to have them on the show. In addition to all that, a well known cast doesn't always mean a better and more interesting one.Quote:
Tom Bergeron Talks 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 10
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
Dec 22, 2009
Tom Bergeron reveals that although "We haven't gotten a definite pickup," Season 10 of "Dancing With the Stars" has been targeted for a March 22 premiere. The show took a ratings dip in Season 9, which is being attributed to less audience interest in the season's lineup of competitors, including winner Donny Osmond.
So next season's cast of stars will be all the more important. Bergeron tells us he's already aware of a couple of the celebrities who'll be joining the show -- but, of course, his lips are sealed.
He won't even spill the details to friends, he says.
"I remind them that when my wife was pregnant with the first of our two daughters, for six months, I knew she was going to have a girl, but she did not want to know. If I could keep the sex of our child secret from my own wife for six months, then keeping the names of celebrities from friends is a walk in the park."
"DWTS" still came in at No. 1 in total viewership its finale week and is still one of TV's top-rated shows, and Bergeron continues to feel that as a job it offers him "an embarrassment of riches. I just really love the fact that it's a live show, and I get to be on with those three judges and Samantha (Harris), who are all friends."
We caught up with the genial host as he was driving down a Connecticut highway in 28-degree weather, en route to having "Christmas with family. Then we'll do a little bit of traveling. We're a very family-centric family," he says.
Bergeron resumes his "America's Funniest Home Videos" hosting duties in January.
Another rumor per another site, designer Betsy Johnson was asked to do the show but turned it down. I wonder if she, like Vera Wang, wouldn't do it because they wouldn't let her design her own costumes. I hope they get some different backgrounds in for a change, rather than all the actors/former girl-boy banders/Olympians/NFL greats.
MFWalkoff, that picture is giving me nightmares everytime I scroll past it :eek
Good godfrey, you scared the hell out of me with that thing.Quote:

I got so bored with last season that, for the very first time, I stopped watching before the finale. The favorites were so boring and definitely NOT the best dancers, except Mya (people who voted for her were voting on dancing alone and/or her hot hot partner).
Totally want Corey Haim and Feldmen, Kirk Cameron or Candice Cameron, Tracey Gold, Soliel Moon Fry (Punky Brewster), basically anyone from an 80's sitcom or movie. I've been wanting the Coreys on for awhile now. Brian Boitano (ice skater), Debbie Gibson or Tiffany would be cool. Alfanso Ribero. Any of these would be awesome to watch.
Dr. Rey of Dr. 90210 says he wants to become a competitor of Dancing with the Stars.

I' would think that Jennifer Gray would be over qualified with Dirty Dancing, but then that's happened before. PLEASE not Kate Goseling, but I did just see her sub on the View. PLEASE NO!
