Dancing with the Stars Rumor Mill: Lance Bass and American Idol's Kellie Pickler May Be Kickin' Up Their Heels

Around this time of year, the internet rumors start flowing about the next season of Dancing with the Stars. At the moment, the two questions circulating through cyberland center around whether the show will feature (yet another) former boy-bander and a contestant from a competing reality show.

Several outlets have reported that Lance Bass will follow his former 'nsync bandmate Joey Fatone onto the dance floor. The gossip has ABC pondering whether or not to pair the openly gay Bass with a man or a woman. While it's an interesting question, as far as I'm concerned the only fair thing, despite his sexuality, would be to pair him with a woman. Otherwise, there would be no way to compare him to the other male/female couples on the show. I mean...would he be expected to lead or follow??

The other rumor making the rounds (this time courtesy of OK magazine), is that former American Idol contestant Kellie Pickler will be kickin' up her "red high heels." Pickler has actually established a bit of a name for herself in the field of country music, with a few hit singles and album sales exceeding 600K. Does she need the show? Well, she didn't need Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader, and she didn't seem to mind making a fool of herself on that one! (Watch video here)

What do you think of these latest names? Will either make you tune in? Or tune out?
