Rumors are flying that poker all-star Phil Hellmuth will be dancing in the next season of Dancing With The Stars. If the rumors are true, Hellmuth could be joining the likes of Marie Osmond, Joey Lawrence, Kelly Osbourne, Bristol Palin, Donny Osmond, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and more.
You may wonder how this rumor got started. Well, looks like Phil Hellmuth started it himself when he sent out a tweet earlier this month that said, “OMG Phil Hellmuth (me!) on Dancing with the Stars!” Outrageous! Might make a fool out of myself on Worldwide Television one more time…”
The Dancing with the Stars page on the ABC website says that they are currently casing for the next season and are asking viewers who they would pick from a variety of categories including singer, athlete, actor, reality star, comedian and model. Maybe Hellmuth tweeted in order to get people to vote for him, or maybe ABC has already cast him. In any case, we won’t know for sure until the lineup for the show’s twelfth season is announced.
I think it would be pretty interesting to see Phil Hellmuth on Dancing with the Stars. He had a cameo appearance in Ludacris’ Sex Room video earlier this year, but he didn’t have the chance to show off any of his dance moves. I’ll look forward to seeing if he knows how to cut it up on the dance floor if these rumors are true.
