DWTS Season 19 Watch Out: Courtney Robertson To Dance?

Courtney Robertson has a new book coming out soon that mentions she was once considering doing Dancing With The Stars when she was engaged to Ben Flajnik. However, she turned the show down since Ben didn’t approve. Below is more from Reality TV World. Kind of makes one wonder on whether she’d still do Dancing With The Stars now since they eventually broke up? Thoughts? Look for Heidi’s thoughts after you read this quote….

I had a secret meeting with the producers of Dancing with the Stars and they wanted me as an alternate, just in case anyone got hurt. The payday was incredible: $125,000 just to show up and $30,000 for every week I made it through. Cha-ching!” Robertson wrote in her upcoming memoir, I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends — Confessions of a Reality Show Villain Courtney Robertson.

“‘They offered it to you?’ he asked incredulously. I noted a tinge of jealousy. I hadn’t even thought about this kind of stuff yet and how it would affect our relationship. I was just excited the opportunity was there.”

“‘If you do it,’ he added coldly, ‘you won’t have a fiance.’”

“I felt like I’d been punched in the gut,” Robertson wrote in an advance copy of the memoir obtained by Reality TV World.

“I can’t believe you’d even bring it up,’ Ben growled, even more pissed off.”

“This was not a good start,” the former bachelorette continued.

“I dropped the conversation and ultimately dropped out of the potential Dancing with the Stars casting, even though we could have bought our first house together with that money. Instead we spent the first three months of our public engagement staying in his frat house of an apartment when I’d visit.”

Heidi: I believe she probably was considered as an alternate at the time – she was a rather controversial “winner” of the Bachelor and got a lot of people talking. But the Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants have a VERY short shelf life and I doubt very much that she would make the cut today – unless her book is a huge best seller. I read a review of it on RealitySteve.com and it sounded kinda interesting, if only to see what kind of crap goes on behind the scenes on that show. Anyway, since she was considered back then only as an alternate, I doubt she would make it even that far today.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

DWTS Season 14 – Courtney Robertson Update

Oy veh. I would have added this to the post that Vogue did previously, but then I decided that I would give it it’s own place. So we can complain some more. :-) DWTSGossip found this little nugget on what is apparently Courtney’s Facebook. I have NOT vetted this or checked it out to see if it’s real and I would appreciate someone debunking this stuff. :-)

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Is Courtney Robinson Going To Appear on Dancing With The Stars Season 14?

I honestly have no idea how to take this news? Could Courtney Robertson of The Bachelor be joining the Dancing With The Stars cast of Season 14 or is this just a guest appearance of some kind? This is nutty. 8O Let’s get Miss Heidi’s thoughts since she watches The Bachelor and be sure to let us know your thoughts as well….

Sources tell PEOPLE that the Ford model – whose antics annoyed her fellow Bachelor contestants – is in talks with Dancing with the Stars producers and that it’s possible she could make an appearance on the March 19 season premiere.

When asked about the rumor, a show rep said simply, “We do not comment on casting rumors. You’ll have to tune in Monday and see.”

If Robertson, 28, were a last-minute addition to this season’s cast, she would only have five days to rehearse. Not that it can’t be done as evidenced by former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft, who was a last-minute addition in season eight when she replaced an injured Nancy O’Dell.

You can read the full article at People.

Heidi: People Magazine is likely full of crap. If she shows up, what would she do? If she dances, who would she dance with?? Dmitry?? He’s the only one tall enough for her that doesn’t have a partner. But the main reason why I think this is bull is because she declined EVERY other media appearance that she wasn’t contracted to do this past week. She and Ben both were supposed to be on Kimmel, GMA and a host of other things and they turned them all down so they could “work on their relationship”. (hahaha…okay, right). So, is DWTS a big enough draw that she would say yes to it?? And I have to say – this better not be true because that would mean TWO double eliminations. But she would likely go first because she’s pretty universally hated. Another reason for her to not do it.
