ABC’s Dancing With the Stars may be the hottest ticket in town for some celebs, but for others It’s a “no” brainer. While the 11th season of Dancing With the Stars features a mix of actors, recording artists, athletes and reality stars- oh, and Bristol Palin- this season’s cast could have looked a little different.
According to The Hollywood Reporter a few really big names turned down the invite to appear on this season’s Dancing With the Stars. So who has better things to do than trip the light fantastic on DWTS?
Mark Zuckerberg. The already-busy billionaire Facebook founder undoubtedly has little time for the intense practice schedule required for DWTS. And he certainly doesn’t need a TV gig to keep his name in the headlines. Besides he’s already got that unflattering portrayal of himself in the flick “The Social Network” to contend with.
Kirstie Alley. While she loves her some reality TV gigs , for some reason funny lady Kirstie Alley turned down this one. She tweeted that she was “too chicken”. I’m bummed Alley didn’t take the DWTS plunge. I don’t see how she could have embarrassed herself- didn’t she already show us it all on Kirstie Alley’s Big Life?
Suzanne Sommers. The former Three’s Company star has not been sitting around idly since her last TV series ended a decade ago. Instead she shifted gears and penned a bunch of self-help and diet books, making the talk show circuit to talk about bioidentical hormone replacement. Perhaps the former Step By Step star thought taking the DWTS gig would be a step back.
Sylvester Stallone. He trained like a maniac for all of those Rocky movies, so why did Stallone throw in the towel and turn down DWTS? Perhaps he was afraid his dance moves would be more comical than his movie Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!
Ann Coulter. The conservative political commentator confirmed to the The O’Reilly Factor that she was indeed offered a spot on DWTS and she actually considered it-for about 30 seconds. She admitted she likes the show, but as for being a contestant she said “It’s not for me”. But look at the bright side, at least we got “The Situation”.
