Monica to be on Dancing with the Stars?

Dancing with the Stars: Season 6 Rumors

While we have less than a month to wait for the new Dancing with the Stars lineup, we have nothing better to do with our time than to speculate who will be part of that big announcement. At one point, Tori Spelling’s name was being thrown around but her pregnancy will keep her sidelined this season. Too bad for Dancing with the Stars, which apparently was looking to have a Beverly Hills 90210 cast member every season. There’s always Luke Perry! This month, TV Guide and In Touch Weekly reported possible season 6 contestants. Here are the rumored cast members from several different sources.

TV Guide reported in their most recent issue that Cheryl Ladd and Monica Seles are possible celebrities to compete on Dancing with the Stars. Ladd is most famous for being Farrah Fawcett’s replacement on Charlie’s Angels in 1977. More recently, she appears on the NBC show Las Vegas, playing Jillian Deline, wife of Ed Deline, played by James Caan.

Keeping with the tradition that several current and former pro athletes are part of the show, Monica Seles’ name has been thrown into the ring. Seles was once the number one tennis player in the world. She was the youngest winner of the French Open, at the age of 16. At the height of her career, she was attacked on the court by a spectator. She has had some success since but has never managed to capture the success that she once had.

In Touch Weekly reported this month that Kristy McNichol was also being considered for Dancing with the Stars season 6. An inside source told the magazine that McNichol fit the demographic of people who watch the show and also, brings along the nostalgia factor with her as part of the package. McNichol is a two-time Emmy Award winner for her work on the shows Family and Empty Nest in the 1970s and 1980s.

Other names that have been thrown out there include Florence Henderson of The Brady Bunch, Chyna, the former WWE wrestler and current resident on Celebrity Rehab, and Brooke Hogan, the Hulk’s daughter.
