The weather here in Manhattan may be frigid today but I’m feeling a little hot under my DVF collar thanks to the news that Cody Simpson will be on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars! As I mentioned, CS was keen to land a spot on the dancing competition and the producers have wisely selected him to tip-tap into your living room every week.
Feel free to ignore his GF, Gigi Hadid, I certainly do.
So who else will CS be competing against? Let’s run through the list. There seem to be a few distinct groups: The Hotties, The Hilarious Ones, The Athletes and The Olds:
The Athletes: Olympic figure skaters Meryl Davis and Charlie White, plus double-amputee snowboarder Amy Purdy. Amy sounds intimidating in her bravery and determination, Cody better watch his back! And Meryl and Charlie certainly know how to dance, but only on skates.
The Hotties: Big Time Rush singer James Maslow and of course, Cody. Delightful! I won’t know where to look first!
The Has-Beens: Former hockey player Sean Avery, whom I happen to know quite well (don’t ask). It’s hilariously pathetic that this is where his career has ended up. But Sean won’t be alone in his irrelevance. Full House alum Candace Cameron Bure and the Wonder Years’ Danica McKellar will be there too.
The Olds: Price Is Right host Drew Carey (#whatever), long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad and Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams. Who cares.
And then there’s my personal favorite, Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes. I love love love her. Its embarrassing, I know this. Cody better dance his Aussie little heart out if he wants to win my vote over NeNe’s.
What’s your take on the new lineup? Impressed? Over it? Only tuning in for Cody? Tell, darlings, you know I always do…XOXO.
