Fergie (the British one) may be 'Dancing' on ABC

The rumors are heating up that Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has gotten her wish and will bring a little royal(e with cheese) flavor to the upcoming fourth season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. (Asked by PopWatch to confirm the rumors, ABC declined to comment. But if they’re true, my colleague Gary Susman wonders whether the DWTS folks realize that they’ve booked the Princess, not the Pea. Ba-dum-bum!)

Anyhow, even though the DWTS casting directors have done a pretty nifty job to date, I think they could use a little help from PopWatch to avoid any ho-hum choices like Sara Evans, Master P, or Trista Rehn. I’ll get the list rolling, you guys keep on adding in the comments section below.

  • David Duchovny (Fox Mulder doing the fox trot? Foxy!)
  • Jody Watley (After seeing her in concert this summer, let me tell you, Miss Jody Watley could teach some of these kids a thing or two about working a stage.)
  • Andrew Shue (This season’s Mario Lopez? And lest we forget, with his soccer past, Shue also fills the pro-athlete slot.)
  • Tara Reid (Slow clap. Show-mance! Show-mance!)
  • Richard Simmons (Tell me I’m not totally inspired here.)

OK, your turn.

    What are the guys from LFO up to these days? A token former boy-bander never hurts…

  • Magistra

    Mindy Cohn from “The Facts of Life.” Oh, and why not Charlotte Rae and Mackenzie Astin while we’re at it.

  • Jennifer

    Please no Tara Reid!!! That girl has her picture next to “bimbo” in the dictionary.

  • Michael

    Two words: Mark Hammil

  • Crystal

    Any cast member of The West Wing not currently on a television show – Richard Schiff, specifically.
    Ditto any cast member of Angel or Buffy.
    If Duchovny did it I would go into shock, but would watch.
    I think she’s preganant (or shooting Brotherhood), but Annabeth Gish would be great too, but is having dance training a no no??

    Lindsey Buckingham: Something for the Boomers…
    A Wiggle: … and the toddlers.
    Donny Osmond: Some things are just inevitable.
    Cher: Admit it, you’d watch.
    Taylor Hicks: New interactive feature for the show: Dance move or seizure?
    A monkey: Because everything’s better with monkeys.
    A Monkee: See above.
    Roseanne: Might as well get this Apocalypse thing over with.

    Adrian Zmed & Lorna Luft – together again, for the first time!!!

  • Jeff in ventura

    Greg Lougainus – Mario played him on TV
    Don Johnson – Hey, if Harry Hamlin can do it…
    Keisha Knight Pulliman – She’s cute and thin now.
    Alannis Morrisett – Wait, you can’t do that on television!
    Vanessa Williams – Not the Ugly Betty one!
    Candice Cameron – Also cute as a button still.
    Jody Sweetin – Just a fun crack joke…How rude?!
    Lita Ford – Wouldn’t she kind of rock?
    Bruce Jenner – His kids should not get all the press.
    Tony Little – Just cause it would look funny.

    Sara Evans was not a “ho hum” choice! bad call there…she has a loyal fan base.

  • Gary

    Why not Rob and Amber? Let’s help them achieve their goal of reality show dominance.

  • McGee

    Ooh…I would both despise that and not be able to keep from watching. Good call.

  • Jen

    Some good choices listed already. My wish list:
    Donnie Osmond
    Darius Rucker
    Steve Doocy
    Seth Green
    Tom Wopat
    Bruce Jenner
    Candice Cameron
    Charisma Carpenter
    Kim Fields
    Lara Jill Miller
    Chilli (from TLC)

  • Esther

    SF Mayor Gavin Newsom

    I notice that the charming and elegant older contestant for the past three seasons is male (John O’Hurlihy, George Hamilton, Jerry Springer). What about an older female in the same age range?
    My suggestion:
    Marlo Thomas
    Phylicia Rashad (Mrs. Cosby)
    Any of the women from Knots Landing
    Loni Anderson
    Delta Burke, Delta Burke or Dixie Carter
    Kate Mulgrew
    Other suggestions:
    Former Athlete – Mary Lou Retton, Nancy Kerrigan
    If Harry Hamlin can do it, how about Susan Dey or Jimmy Smits or other LA Law Cast members
    Sandra Bernhard
    Melissa Gilbert
    Nicholas Brenan, Anthony Heald or any other Buffy or Angel cast member
    Kevin Bacon – though he’s probably too busy
    I also like the Mark Hamill suggestion.
