Dancing with the Stars Season 16 Hot News and Casting Rumors: Honey Boo Boo's Mama to Join the Show?

Sometimes we forget that Dancing with the Stars is still a thing, but it is, it definitely is, and the show will be announcing its newest cast members live on February 26th. But, while we wait for the official announcement, we thought we’d clue you in to some of the casting rumors we’ve been hearing about recently.

The news comes to us from the New York Daily News via Pure DWTS and, while I believe at least one of the rumors *somewhat* I’m not totally convinced by the other casting rumors, as some of that rumorage includes Honey Boo Boo’s mama and Kourtney Kardashian as potential candidates for the hot dancing reality show. The one rumor we are buying is the potential candidacy of pro boxer Victor Ortiz — and Pure DWTS seems to think the same thing.

According to ABC, “the competition begins with 12 new celebrities who will brave the “DWTS” dance floor for their very first time. Leaving their comfort zones and enduring grueling rehearsals, these new competitors will work to master creative and entertaining performances and world-class choreography, all while receiving critical judgment on the unforgiving ballroom floor and in front of America.”

The other person who’s currently racking up the rumorage to appear on the 16th season of DWTS is Emily Maynard. I could actually see this happening, especially after all the media coverage she’s been hoarding over the past months in the tabloids. Honestly, I doubt she’ll make it onto the show, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw this blondie attempting the Foxtrot in the future. Mama June, Honey Boo Boo’s recently slimmed-down mother, would add some good ol’ fashion down home fun to the program.

What about you? Would you like to see Honey B’s mama make it onto this coming season of the dancing show? Or do you think all these rumors are a bunch of bull crap and we should just wait for the official announcement later this February? Who do you think will make it onto the dancing with the stars cast list?
