DWTS Season 12 Cast Rumor – Phil Hellmuth

Well, maybe.  He apparently wanted to be on the show a while ago (he “auditioned”?? Hmmm…) and you know people don’t always get what they want. :-)  Who the hell is he, you ask?  Do the words “World Series of Poker” ring any bells??  They should if you’re a Shannon Elizabeth fan. According to CardPlayer.com:

According to his recent Tweet, Phil Hellmuth may be appearing on the 12th season of the ABC show Dancing with the Stars.

The 46-year-old Hellmuth, who has unsuccessfully auditioned for a spot in the past, wrote: OMG! Phil Hellmuth (me!) on “Dancing with the Stars!” Outrageous! Might make a fool out of myself on Worldwide Television one more time…

Although the cast for the spring season will not be announced until sometime next month, Hellmuth’s Tweet gives hope that he will be selected for the popular show. The date of the season premiere has yet to be determined
