New 'DWTS' Casting Rumor All but Confirmed by Co-Host Brooke Burke (VIDEO)

Ugh. Waiting until September 4 to hear who will be part of the Dancing With the Stars season 17 cast is really starting to get tough! I guess it's fun to have a little mystery involved so we're surprised when the announcement finally comes -- but it would be nice to have a few hints beforehand, right?

Well, we may have a little bit of extra insight after listening to DWTS co-host Brooke Burke's comments about casting rumors that are floating around. She may have given away one name we haven't yet heard pop up as a possibility. (At least I haven't heard it.)


Brooke sat down to chat with KTLA, and while she indicated that she doesn't know who is and is not on the cast list just yet -- her reactions to a few potential contestants were pretty interesting.

First of all, she's just as excited and surprised about either (or both?) John Stamos and Jamie Lee Curtis possibly taking a spin around the dance floor. Earlier this week, HuffPo's Megan Griffo tweeted out something about a yogurt spokesperson being the new DWTS star -- which is how both of their names entered the picture. As of now, neither one of them is confirmed to be part of the cast, but it's definitely a possibility.

But then the KTLA dude asked her about Abby Lee Miller from Dance Moms, and she started smiling and said, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, could be."

Check it out.

Um, way to let the cat out of the bag, Brooke. Abby has to be a cast member; otherwise, she probably would've said something more along the lines of, "I don't know, I guess it's possible?"

And there you have it. She's pumped but not sure about Stamos and Jamie Lee -- but it looks like Abby is probably a safe bet. Hmm. Wonder who her partner will be? And who else will make the cut?

September 4 can't get here soon enough.

Do you think Abby Lee Miller is a good addition to the DWTS cast?
