Keep in mind that the sources for this information are WAY less than reliable. LOL. First up, from the UK, Pippa Middleton is apparently dying to be on DWTS with Derek as a partner. From The Hollywood Gossip:
As for Pippa’s boogying ambitions, the guard claims Kate’s younger sister desperately wants to appear on Dancing With the Stars, but her dream has repeatedly been shut down.
“She wants her sister’s fame, that’s for sure. I heard she’s desperate to be on Dancing with the Stars but the palace asked her to back off. They felt it would sully the image of her sister.
“Well, I tell you she did not care! She supposedly contacted Derek Hough somehow and he’s a big fan of the idea.”
We’ve also posted on Pippa a number of times, since she’s on Mark’s wish list of celebrity partners. Sorry Mark. Next up, Amanda Bynes is supposedly in the running for this season of DWTS and she wants Derek or Mark. Oy veh. From Hollywood Life:
In keeping with the good news, our sources tell us that Amanda is in the running to star on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars — that is, if she remains healthy enough to compete. “They want her! If she does it, she wants to dance with Derek [Hough], 30, or Mark [Ballas], 29,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She is in very, very loose discussions and absolutely nothing has been set in stone but as long as she is mentally stable, she is basically a lock for the next season.”
Take all of this with a huge grain of salt as neither outlet has a stellar track record when it comes to DWTS. 😉
ETA: Vogue here. According to Amanda’s Attorney via Access Hollywood, she’s decided to return to college instead of doing Dancing With The Stars. Adding: Keep in mind though that the Access Hollywood article is 2 months old. You never know…anything could happen to change one’s mind in that time?
Amanda’s attorney also took the time to shoot down a TV project rumor surrounding his client.
“Amanda isn’t going to be on ‘Dancing with the Stars,'” Esquibias said.
“She’d like to return to college,” he explained, adding that Amanda has not matriculated anywhere yet.
