Despite speculation that a star or two of the Bravo series might have been joining the Dancing with the Stars cast, it seems like ABC could care less.
Bethenny Frankel, Teresa Giudice, and Kim Richards have all vied for the what they see as a coveted spot on the reality competition show, but all three failed miserably.
Skinnygirl Beth campaigned HARD in 2009, going to the show to sit in the front row and everything! But nope, execs just weren't having it. It was a big oh well for Frankel, but she's bounced back since, making some AWESOME Sangria.
Teresa and Kim both tried hard too, with rumors of strenuous training in hopes of manifesting their dreams into reality.
But again, nope. So why not?
One insider claims:
Season after season the housewives pitch themselves to grace the dance floor and season after season the show says thanks but no thanks. Initially everyone assumed the Housewives had been asked but Bravo had not allowed them to do a show on another network. But now it is clear Bravo would love its franchise to get exposed to 20 million viewers. However, they are just not welcome at the dance.
Ahh well, ladies. You'll always have your recording contracts, fragrance lines, workout videos, pinot gris, clothing stores, cook books, speaking tours, and a hell of a lot of jewelry.
We'll think you'll be juuuuust fine!
