And before you get all cute, he was one of the original "stars" asked to be on the show. He just had to turn the offer down.
We know, shocking right?
Turns out, Ryan O'Neal was pegged and prepped to be one of the twinkle toes on Dancing with the Stars this season but at the last minute, he bowed out due to injury.
Boy, show hasn't even started and the curse is in full swing!
Anyway, he explained to sources that he had a knee replacement done a few months back that he still hasn't recovered from. After his first rehearsal, he "realized that it wasn't 100 percent yet," so he left the show. However, we're told he hopes to "be able to do the show next season."
Hmm. Wonder who they got to replace him? David Arquette? Rob Kardashian? Nancy Grace?
