Bristol Palin Joins Dancing With the Stars Cast?

The next season of Dancing With the Stars looks like it is going to continue the tradition of having the weirdest reality show cast on television. Not only will the next season allegedly feature such weirdoes as drunken David Hasselhoff and crazy Jersey fiend The Situation, we’ll also be forced to watch former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin‘s daughter hit the dance floor.

That’s right; it looks like Bristol Palin may be desperately clinging to her 15 minutes of fame on the new season of Dancing With the Stars. This is almost as bad a casting decision, in our opinion, as signing on Kate Gosselin last time around. Although, frankly, it’s difficult to believe anyone could suck as badly as Gosselin did.

Along with David Hasselhoff, The Situation and Bristol Pain, other rumored Dancing With the Stars cast members include Audrina Patridge and Brandy. While Kirstie Alley was also rumored to be signed on for the next season, E! Online says that bit of gossip is not true. As for ABC, a rep says the network does not comment on casting rumors.

The official Dancing With the Stars cast will be announced Monday, Aug. 30 on ABC during Bachelor Pad.

Jersey Shore Cast Fired by MTV?

The current cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore reality show may be standing in the unemployment line unless they agree to the terms of a new contract deal from the network. The Jersey Shore cast could be fired by MTV if they aren’t willing to take what the network is offering – far less than what they reportedly want.

The eight cast members of MTV’s Jersey Shore reportedly rejected an offer of $5,000 an episode and a $10,000 signing bonus for the second season of the show. MTV is allegedly not pleased with the group decision to play the network for more money. The network has reportedly upped their offer to $10,000 an episode, but that’s as far as they are willing to go.

According to, MTV is telling the Jersey Shore cast if they don’t agree to the new deal, they’ll be replaced with new cast members. MTV reportedly has mega-loads of audition tapes from hopeful Jersey Shore lovers wanting to appear on the show. So far, the Jersey Shore cast has reportedly not responded to the new offer.

The season finale of Jersey Shore, starring such questionable characters as Snooki, Pauly D and The Situation, drew almost 4 million viewers. The down and dirty reality show is a huge hit for the network, which probably prompted the cast members in their attempt to play hardball with MTV over money.

MTV has reportedly stated that any cast member who decides to accept the deal can stay, but they are ready to bring in replacements for anyone who doesn’t take the deal. We’re thinking the Jersey Shore cast should probably take the offer. It’s not like most of them are going to have anyone else willing to pay them to act like assholes for a living.
