Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown (aka Scary Spice) and former Beverly Hills 90210-er Tori Spelling are both rumored to be interested in participating in the next season of Dancing with the Stars.

Julianne Hough fans, prepare to open your wallets — she’s working on a country album. Her single, "Will You Dance With Me," is currently available on iTunes.

Season 1 Dance-Off winner John O’Hurley and his partner, Charlotte Jorgensen, will release an instructional DVD set — "Learn to Dance with John and Charlotte" — on July 31.

If you’ve got an extra $45 laying around, you can get a Maksim Chmerkovskiy calendar or beach towel (shipping and handling are extra). Or if you’d prefer a more hands-on experience, Maks will be teaching a Latin dance workshop at his New Jersey studio on June 28.

Likewise, Tony Dovolani will be teaching two workshops at the Fred Astaire Chicago North Studio in Buffalo Grove, IL on June 12. Tony & Elena Grinenko are the special performers at the Chicago Open on June 10.
