According to MSNBC, one of the first people David Arquette called for advise on doing Dancing With The Stars was Howard Stern. Howard encouraged him so people could get to know him better. But, the advise didn’t end there. David also wants Howard to be his backstage coach. LOL Can you imagine? I hope Howard makes an appearance during David and Kym’s rehearsals. Wouldn’t that be funny?
“One of my first calls when I was considering it was to Howard,” the actor told Sirius-XM’s Howard 100 News today. “I asked him, ‘What do you think?’ They asked me last season too, and he said, ‘I think it would be a good opportunity for people to get to know you better,’ and that was one of my deciding factors.”
And Arquette is hoping that the teamwork doesn’t end there.
..”I want him to be my backstage coach,” he said, “to just help me out if he has any pointers, if he thinks I should focus on something, or what I’m doing wrong and sort of be part of the whole competition.”
David also asked his daughter if he should dance on the show. She wanted to talk with her friend Ashley about it first. LOL
Arquette also told E! News’ Ryan Seacrest today that he asked daughter Coco what she thought of daddy doing “Dancing With the Stars.”
“And she said, ‘Initially, my feeling is no, but let me go to school and talk it over with my friend Ashley,'” he said, laughing. “I said, ‘Wait, you can’t talk about it with Ashley, it’s a pretty big secret.'”
“My daughter Coco is a little worried I’ll embarrass her, and I’m sure I will…But ultimately I think she’ll be excited to see me perform and I look forward to when maybe she gets past the embarrassment, maybe she’ll want to learn a few moves with me! I’d love to dance with her and have her be a part of this.”
