Are "Dancing" Execs Turning Tricks?

8/28/2007 12:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forget the CIA or FBI, the most heavily-guarded list in the country belongs to ... ABC?!
Dancing with the Stars
After TMZ published the names of the latest cast
of "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday, we've learned that furious ABC brass called a meeting to address the leak with members of the show's crew. TMZ strikes again!

Well placed on-set sources tell us that execs, fearing someone would leak the cast to TMZ, gave the show's staff and crew names that may or may not be 100% accurate. For the love of Valerie Plame!

While the official announcement will be made tomorrow, counterterrorist spies have confirmed to TMZ that Marie Osmond will appear on the new season. Sleep well, America!

If they really wanted an audience they should have picked more well known "stars". Who the hell are some of these people?????

Now that they have released the "actual" list of "stars" and I use the term loosely, it's really not any better then the "faux" list supposedly leaked!!! Personally, I don't get this list at all - while having watched all of the previous seasons, am not sure this one will keep my attention!! Only thing that I can think of that justifies this so-called list of celebrities is that so far every season has been about popularity, not actual dance talent - and perhaps the powers that be are trying to make it about the actual dancing this year. Whatever - it's a very BORING list of contestants -

TMZ is SO full of themselves..!! First, they run a "scoop" headline "TOP SECRET Dancing Stars REVEALED..." Now, today, it's ".... May have been a trick, false leak.."
Good reporting job, TMZ - You've become the FOX NOISE of the entertainment news business...!! Aren't even embarrassed to run your mistaken "reporting" as a "news" headline the next day....!!!! HOW PATHETIC...!!!!! & WHO CARES...??!!!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Marie Osmond that's going to be sweet. She'll get my vote for sure. I also like Mark Cuban & Wayne Newton.

I'm sorry but Tori Spelling is not only the homeliest actress in Hollywood but she can't act either! She wouldn't be where she is today (home-wrecking tramp) if it wasn't for her Daddy.

DW - The senator's story was posted yesterday....when it was actually current and relevant. Yes, it still applies today, but it was posted yesterday. And besides that not EVERY story has to be business/political/current events. A lot fo them are, but not all and whether we like it or not television entertainment is a HUGE industry and is going to be reported as well.

As a note about the new dancers....I knew at least a couple of them were fakes from the beginning because if you know anything about some of these people and their schedules it's impossible for a couple of them to be doing the show right now.

You know what? I think "Dancing with the Stars" is certainly much more "uplifting" and refreshing to watch instead of the news with................."who killed who, and fires and tornadoes and floods and hurricanes who is dying of cancer and all sorts of depressing things! To watch something "light" and happy, no matter who the participants are is a much happier feeling !

Shar - just an FYI - believe Donny Osmond is waaaaaaaay past "pushing" 40ish!!! Still cute tho!!! The only thing that would've saved this year's DWTS would've been to have BOTH Donny and Marie on the show!! Otherwise the lineup is like "WHO????"

I wish it was gonna be both Marie & Donny Osmond................ In fact I wish ABC would do a Dancing With the Stars featuring ALL big name 70's Artists. They could have both Donny & Marie, David & Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garret, Cher ETC
