Honey Boo Boo mama June Shannon will not be joining the DWTS competition for the next season with Emily Maynard and Kourtney Kardashian.
Apparently, ABC was interested in adding Mama June to the talent show roster, but a rep for TLC, the cable channel that airs the Honey Boo Boo reality series, said that the rumor isn’t true.
Some reports suggest that June will bring some good old-fashioned fun to the “Dancing With The Stars” show. The mother recently lost more than 100 pounds and is enjoying a new look.
“I have lost 115 pounds, but that’s because I’m on the go. We love fried food, but I lost that weight because I’m more active doing things,” she told HuffPost Celebrity.
This isn’t the only rumor of certain stars joining DWTS.
Back in mid-January, TMZ reported that Ann Romney turned down “DWTS.”
“Honchos approached Ann about the gig just after her hubby lost the election and she was ‘very interested.’ You may recall, Ann showed up at last season’s finale and gushed that she was a big, big fan,” TMZ said.
However, Ann ultimately decided against it.
Rumors run wild each year before the new season starts.
The new cast of DWTS will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 26 on ABC’s Good Morning America.
