If you seen all of the names on the new casting list for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars and thought “Who?!?” then you are not alone. There is one name that you will recognize who wanted to do the show, but apparently was not chosen. Emily Maynard, the former Bachelorette, really wanted to appear on the show and dance for the mirror ball trophy:
Emily Maynard is dancing with herself. In the March 11 issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday), multiple sources reveal the former Bachelorette is crushed she wasn’t asked to compete during the sixteenth season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
“She is angry,” an insider says of the 27-year-old single mom, while another source says she “desperately wanted” to participate in the show. (Bachelor alums Melissa Rycroft and Jake Pavelka have each competed on Dancing With the Stars, and Rycroft won the All-Stars season in November 2012 with the help of pro partner Tony Dovolani.)
Maynard “badly” wanted to be back in the spotlight, a pal tells Us. “Who wouldn’t? It looks like fun!”
It definitely might’ve been a better season with Emily on it, don’t you think? The names that were announced were boring — except for our hot Irish prince, Tristan MacManus. Unf.
