“Dancing With The Stars” season 21 will premiere on September 14 at 8pm on ABC!

Bindi Irwin Is The First Celebrity Contestant Announced For Dancing With The Stars Season 21

Bindi-Irwin

(PCM) 17-year old Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, is the first celebrity contestant revealed for the upcoming season 21 of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” which will premiere on September 14 at 8pm ET.

Irwin says that she is incredibly excited to participate on the show and feels that it will be a “truly unbelievable new experience”. Prior to heading to Los Angeles for show preparations,  Irwin spent a month in her homeland of Australia following in her father’s footsteps studying crocodiles to see where they go and what they get up to. She and her family take an annual trip to the Steve Irwin preserve for these types of research projects. Irwin, along with her mother Terri and brother Robert live on the property of the Australia Zoo, however they will all relocate to Los Angeles temporarily for Irwin to compete in the series.

Irwin revealed to People Magazine, “The contrast will be huge. I’m a little scared but we will see what happens”.  She goes on to say this is completely different than anything she has ever done in her life as she is “used to wrangling crocodiles”.  She admits to having “no dance experience at all”.

Recently, the cast of “Dancing With The Stars” pros has been revealed, however it has not yet been announced which pro will be paired with Irwin for the upcoming season.

Dancing With The Stars Head Judge Len Goodman Not Returning For New Season

Len-Goodman

(PCM) Sadly, the news has been revealed that long-time Dancing With The Stars head judge Len Goodman will not be returning for the show’s upcoming new season. Producer Rob Wade released the following statement in regards to Goodman’s departure saying “Len will not be returning as a judge this season on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ due to his schedule as a judge on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ in the UK and the birth of his new grandson,” Wade said. “He still might be involved in the season at some capacity, but we will have to wait and see. We are planning on having great guest judges for some shows to join Bruno (Tonioli), Carrie Ann (Inaba) and Julianne (Hough), and I’m sure we will see Len in the ballroom again soon.”

As predicted, fans of the series have not been happy about the news, but Goodman did mention back in December that the show’s 20th season would most likely be his last as he was looking to get back on with normal life. Goodman has been jet-setting from Los Angeles to London when both of his shows were filming, so we can imagine that he would be incredibly exhausted.

There has been no official word about Goodman’s replacement for the upcoming 21st season that will begin on September 14 on ABC.  It has been revealed, however, that Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, and Karina Smirnoff will be among the pro dancers returning in the upcoming season.

Kermit The Frog And Miss Piggy Announce Their Separation Via Social Media

Piggy-Kermit

(PCM) Say it isn’t so! Beloved characters on The Muppets, Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy, have announced their separation via social media. The news of the couple’s break-up just happens to coincide with the upcoming premiere of the all new series “The Muppets” set to air on ABC this fall.

The pair have released a joint statement which states “We will continue to work together on television (‘The Muppets’ Tuesday 8/7 c this fall on ABC) and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe. However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al.”

Both Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy each released individual statements on Twitter which can be seen below:

As if the news of their separation wasn’t enough, Kermit took things a step further with a Twitter conversation between himself and actress Emmy Rossum in which the pair appeared to have some kind of romantic entanglement.  Kermit let’s her down easy and reveals that he is currently dating a woman named Denise who works in ABC publicity. 

Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy have been linked together for over 40 years and their split certainly comes as a major surprise.  The pair are currently doing press together for the “The Muppets” and appear to be having no problem continuing to work together in that capacity. The new Muppets show will be a behind-the-scenes mockumentary that deals with the professional and personal lives of the various Muppet characters. Wonder if any of this separation drama will unfold on screen? Guess we will just have to tune in to find out!
