'Star' Search for 'Dancing'

Still in Limbo

7/26/2008 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ that the casting for the next season of "Dancing With The Stars" is far from complete. Producers still are scrambling on specifics and contestants.

Taking a page from Jerry Springer, the producers are trying to create some major drama, possibly by pairing exes up against each other or people who have had some sort of turbulent relationship.

Talks with Kim Kardashian, Warren Sapp, Lance Bass and "Brady Bunch" mama Florence Henderson have been confirmed. Another younger Brady also may be on board. Paging Chris Knight!

We're also told the show wants to have a contestant who has beat a disease or currently is battling a disease to be the emotional kicker this year. Heartwarming!

The formal cast announcement is scheduled for late August.

I think Sara Ramirez from Grey's Anatomy would be a great contestant on Dancing with the Stars....So if there is anyone reading this that is involved with the show then please consider giving Sara a chance because I think she would kick everyone's ass on the show even Kim Kardashian.

Why is Jennifer Gray a contestant? She was a professional dancer, pretty obvious..not fair at all? the others have NO CHANCE at all - the only way anyone else would win- is popularity votes...it's clear she's the best dancer...who decided on Jennifer Gray- ruined the whole season, watching a pro against all the inexperienced ones..
