PureDWTS Season 27 Cast Rumors & Watchout/POLL: Do You Think We’ll See Omarosa on DWTS This Season?

I’ve had more than a few people on Twitter asking about this one, and it’s almost become the elephant in the room of season 27: will we see The Apprentice/Celebrity Big Brother star and former Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the White House under Trump, Omarosa Manigault Newman (née Stallworth) on DWTS this season? Hollywood Life is claiming she’s the one “they want more than anyone else” this season:

Casting is still being finalized for season 27 of Dancing With The Stars, and HollywoodLife is hearing EXCLUSIVELY that Omarosa is a hot ticket. “Omarosa is the one person they want next season more than anyone else,” an insider tells us. “They have already reached out and are hoping to make a deal with her to join the show for this upcoming season. It’s not official, but the offer is 100% there for her to join.” As always, ABC does not comment on casting rumors, but promised an announcement will be coming closer to the Sept. 24 premiere.

Bear in mind, Hollywood Life is generally NOT a reliable source for DWTS – they tend to go fishing in our comments section a lot, and just parrot what other outlets say (further down the article, they mention cast rumors for this season being Mama June and Scottie Pippen – both of whose kids are current on DWTS Junior – and Brie Bella and Jonathan Scott, who are siblings of people who were on the show last fall…*eye roll*). But I’m not sure they’re entirely wrong about Omarosa…

…then again, Omarosa is what I would call a “gimme”: the exact type of celeb DWTS loves to go after, and is likely to say “yes” if asked.  She’s currently in the news for her tell-all book about her time in the White House, and she finished in 5th place on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year (where she was in a cast with five former DWTS contestants).  She’s a bit of a no-brainer and a foregone conclusion, I think. The only place I could find where Omarosa said she’d do the show is the video below, from 9 years ago – but she had a pretty quick and emphatic response when asked what reality shows she’d like to do:

So given all that info, you’d think she’d be a definite for this season, right? But for some reason, I am not entirely convinced we’re going to see her. Part of me thinks that Omarosa might alienate some of DWTS’ core demographic – namely, conservatives that support the President. Part of me thinks that she isn’t particularly well-liked, and may be an early out anyway.  I’m not quite sure how to verbalize it, but I’m just not sure this rumor’s actually going to end up coming to fruition. Just a gut feeling saying “maybe not, Court”. But if we do see her, for the love of all things good & holy, PUH-LEASE don’t dump her on Keo…
