PopEater had reported that the hit show’s producers were keen on Ellen DeGeneres’ wife as one half of the show’s first same-sex dance couple. When she elected not to take part, the idea was reportedly shelved for the time being.
Rumors are also circulating that Todd Palin, Sarah's better half and Bristol's dad, is being pursued to join the competition next season. Hopefully this is not true, as I will not be watching it! No more Palins on Dancing With the Stars!
