Andy Dick is clean and sober and plans to take dancing and this competition seriously. He’s going to have a lot of fun too and just be himself. Note that this isn’t the first time Andy has been asked to do Dancing With The Stars. He had a lot of problems the first time producers asked, but, he’s ready now. More below and at the NY Daily News! I’m loving this guy. I about died laughing when he tripped while walking out on the stage at the GMA cast announcement yesterday. Too funny!
He now claims most of his obscene shenanigans were “things that were probably alcohol-induced, so in that respect [on the show] there’s no alcohol, that’s out!
“Completely sober, if you’re [asking],” he said of his current condition. “Am I going to be showing up on the dance floor with my penis in my hand? That’s not going to be happening.”
The star-studded cast for the sweet 16 season includes two Olympic athletes, gymnast Aly Raisman and ice skater Dorothy Hamill; a current Super Bowl champ, the Baltimore Ravens’ Jacoby Jones; two country music singers, Wynonna Judd and Kellie Pickler; a “Beverly Hills” housewife, Lisa Vanderpump; actress Zendaya Coleman; D.L. Hughley, and daytime actor Ingo Rademacher.
With such an eclectic mix of celebrities in one ballroom, the show is unlikely to run short on drama.
Dick says he was first approached by “Dancing” producers for the show’s initial season in 2004.
“They asked me the very first season and I said no, and please don’t ask me again. It’s not in my wheelhouse, the show’s not going to last,” he recalls. “Sixteen seasons later! Also, I wasn’t in a good place back then. I would never have been able to make it two minutes into the rehearsal. Still, we’ll see what happens this season.”
