People.com has a nice little article posted about Ralph Macchio guest starring on Wednesday’s Happily Divorced finale. They also asked him he’d “be reaching for his dancing shoes once more” for the upcoming new All-Stars season on Dancing With The Stars? Below is a take for how he answered back.
“I would be flattered and privileged for them to ask me, and I think that on that day I would take a look,” he says. “I always enjoyed creating and telling stories with dance.”
He’s also “friends for life” with his former ballroom partner, pro Karina Smirnoff, but with all that, when pressed he admits that he’s not “dying to jump back onto the dance floor,” adding, “If I was 25, it would be a little bit easier. It’s a lot tougher to be over 40 and do that show.”
Still, should it happen that he’s selected for a parquet encore, “I said to my wife, ‘I’m gonna have to shave my head, do a little tanning and start throwing that football around if I want to go back,’ ” says Macchio, in reference to past winners Hines Ward, J.R. Martinez and Donald Driver. “At the end of the day … it’s a show.”
Oh, I so hope he does the show if asked again. If he were to say “yes”, please let the judges treat him right this time.
