Dan Quayle and Kathy Griffin Turn Down Dancing with the Stars 2008

TV Guide is reporting that both Dan Quayle and Kathy Griffin turned down chances to be on Dancing with the Stars season 7.

Kathy Griffin said about the offer:

“I have a hard offer for Dancing with the Stars,” raucous redhead and proud D-Lister Kathy Griffin tells TV’s Extra. But when asked if she plans to accept ABC’s invite, she says, “No! I can’t even touch my toes!”

I don’t know about you, but Kathy is known for her whit. I don’t want to see her red head going around the dance floor at all. Thank you Kathy for not accepting the offer.

Similarly, a spokesperson for former U.S. vice president Dan Quayle tells IndyStar.com, “There was contact [made]” and “there was interest in having him be on the show,” but at the end of the day the Indianapolis native said noe. Er, no. “I can tell you that he is not doing the show,” says the rep.

I actually think that it would be quite entertaining to have Dan Quayle on the show. I’m sure he’d be horrible, but sometimes that’s funny and endearing. I read one person commenting on the story that said, “Dan Quayle did enough to ruin the vice presidency. Thank you Dan for not doing the same to the cast of Dancing with the Stars.”

The Dancing with the Stars 2008 cast will be officially revealed the morning of Aug. 25, on ABC’s Good Morning America. There’s got to be somewhere that spoils it. If you find it, let me know.
