As always, take this news with a grain of salt being this source hasn’t been known to be reliable in the past. Also note that in a previous posting, we reported Dolly saying “are you insane?” to the idea of dancing on Dancing With The Stars when they have asked her before. Anyway, here is a rumor from Hollywood Life about Dolly Parton dancing on the show. They say she is close to signing and guess who she wants as a partner? Mark Ballas!! They also are reporting Gavin DeGraw close to signing….
Dolly Parton, please report to the dance floor! A Dancing with the Stars insider reveals to HollywoodLife.com that after Billy Ray Cyrus turned down a spot on the show’s 14th season, he suggested producers check with Dolly — and she’s close to signing on the dotted line! “Dolly has sung on the show in the past, and laid a great impression on the dancers and producers,” our source tells us exclusively. “Discussions have started … and her request is to dance with Mark Ballas!”
Another singer with the Mirrorball Trophy in his sights is Gavin DeGraw! Our source confirms that Gavin has verbally committed to doing the show — as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter – but still has to sign an official contract. He has a few dates left on his current tour, but we’re told they wouldn’t interfere with the show’s hectic filming schedule.
I really hope the rumor is true about Dolly! She’d be amazing!!! A total “A-lister” too in my opinion! Thoughts?
