“Dancing with the Stars” is planning a star-studded return to the ballroom. 

I’m calling it star-studded because this is one of the first seasons’s where I know most of the “celebrity contestants.”

On Wednesday, the beloved dance competition announced who would be competing in season 29 premiering on September 14 on ABC. 

Here’s who we’ve got: 

  • Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean (he has to dance to a BSB song, it’s only right)
  • Tiger King star Carole Baskin (Can she dance to the TikTok “Savage” remake titled “Carole Baskin”?
  • Selling Sunset‘s Chrishell Stause (Maybe we’ll hear more about her split from This Is Us actor Justin Hartley)
  • former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe ( she said this was a dream come true)
  • former NFL player Vernon Davis
  • Jesse Metcalfe
  • Monica – the head coach from Netflix’s Cheer (anyone think she’s got this in the bag?)
  • Anne Heche (Should her partner be Chicago PD’s Voight?)
  • Skai Jackson
  • One Day at a Time actress Justina Machado
  • The Real host Jeannie Mai
  • Grammy Award-winning rapper Nelly (It’s getting hot in hurrr)
  • Catfish host Nev Schulman (hopefully, his dance partner doesn’t catfish him)
  • NBA superstar Charles Oakley
  • Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir

The pro-partner pairings will be announced during the premiere but they include Artem Chigvintsev, Sharna Burgess, Peta Murgatroyd, Val Chmerkovskiy, Cheryl Burke, Keo Motsepe, Jenna Johnson, Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong, Sasha Farber, Pasha Pashkov, Emma Slater and Gleb Savchenko.

With COVID-protocol in place, there likely won’t be an audience cheering everyone on, but that’s why you have to be watching from home.

Plus, Tyra Banks takes over hosting duties, and you’ll want to see her smize!

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7

Chicago Med Lemons and Lemonade

Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!

Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season. 

Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.

DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX. 

DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly. 

She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.

It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.

Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.

I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”

Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.

Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew. 

The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.

All three Chicago shows were renewed for three additional seasons back in 2020 — Chicago Fire through season 11, Chicago PD through season 10, and Chicago Med through season 8.

The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school. 

We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
