Whoa! They must have really wanted her!

But Gayle King stuck to her guns and turned down the opportunity to compete on ABC's Dancing with the Stars three times!!

When Oprah's BFF was asked why she repeatedly turned down the dancing show, Gayle replied:

"I think it's good to keep my public humiliation to a minimum. I would never want to embarrass my children ever…or myself! I can't dance."

She is a fan of the show though! Who's her favorite dancer on the current season of DWTS?? She says, "I like Jennifer Grey, but I also like that guy Kyle [Massey]. I didn't know him, but he has personality and moves."

We don't think Gayle's dancing would be nearly as bad as her singing! But we still would have loved to see her shake her thang.

Do U think Gayle would be a good contestant on DWTS??

    Why is Okra's diaper changer on this site?



  2. 2

    It would be nice if ABC's Dancing with the Stars ACTUALLY had a Star on the show…



  3. 3

    I'm glad Gayle knows her limitations…Oprah was very vocal towards criticizing her singing….her dancing could be worse.



  4. 4

    Some people know their limits! Smart woman. My eye is on Jennifer Gray and Brandy. And Kyle do bring something to the show. They all do. Gayle should know Kyle is a Disney kid.

    Where you can go along with world trends on ~~(Mygoodbag)~~~.There are so many fashion items you need and all the big brand you love.

  7. 7

    Oprah owns Gayle.



  8. 8

    She should keep classy and keep turning them down…



  9. 9

    DANCING WITH THE STARS IS NOW FOR HAS-BEENS, NEVER WAS-ES, WHORES, AND FRIENDS/EX-WIVES/MISTRESSES OF CELEBRITIES. OH YEAH, AND ALSO FOR LITTLE WHORE DAUGHTERS OF CRAZYTOWN POLITICAL BITCHES. IN ANOTHER YEAR I THINK NANCY PELOSI WILL BE THE OLD LADY ON THE SHOW ONE SEASON.

    She would accept if she could dance with her lesi friend Oprah.

    DWTS If Maks fans want him to win MBT then u better unite and fast. Their DI ranking has been very low last few weeks & its been accurate so far. Why do this to him when he has a great chance to win. He loves all his partners and obviously whatever you think, he and Erin are still friends. DWTS is his JOB. It is possible to like Erin and Brandy and Maks or any combo. But geez support Maks.

    I almost never watch DWTS. However, I did watch it the night Florence Henderson was on there. The woman is NUTS. A 75 year old should not be doing that. She just can't face the fact that she is a senior citizen now. Dr. Weil.com says that 80% of his patients that break their hip die within the first year following the injury. Crazy!



  15. 15

    Is she even a star? Or a FRIEND of a star?

    Re: gorgeous_chik7 – I think she is 'sleeping' with a star.
