While official announcements will probably be released in the upcoming weeks, rumors have been swirling as to which "stars" will be participating in the two celebrity based reality shows. Just a reminder, all of this is speculation and many of these people may not end up doing the shows.
The "Dancing with the Stars 7" cast will be revealed on Monday and some of the names being tossed around include N*SYNC member Lance Bass, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Kim Kardashian, singer Toni Braxton, rodeo star and Jewel's husband Ty Murray, "The Brady Bunch" mom Florence Henderson and original Batman Adam West who, at 79, would be the oldest participant ever. Former Miami Dolphin Dan Marino was approached, but he declined.
As for the second season of "Celebrity Apprentice", that show doesn't debut until January but filming is scheduled to start September 21st. Former NBA Star Dennis Rodman, Playboy Playmate Brande Roderick and comedian Joan Rivers are all heavily rumored to be on the show.
Many of these names are not new to the reality TV universe. Kim Kardashian has her own reality TV show, Ty Murray hosts "Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge", Florence Henderson was on "The Surreal Life", Dennis Rodman won "Celebrity Mole", Joan Rivers has been on the U.K.'s "Big Brother" and Brande Roderick's entire career has basically consisted of reality TV, with appearances on "Fear Factor" and "The Surreal Life" to name a few. Remember, these are just rumors and I will have the official casts as soon as they are released
