As fans of Dancing with the Stars eagerly await the new list of contestants for next season to be revealed, E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic confirmed that she has been approached to join the cast.
Rancic told E! News that, “Yes, I've been approached for the new season.”
Unfortunately, she was also able to confirm right away that she had to turn the offer down because of her packed schedule. She said that, although she has been a fan of the hit ABC show, “...my schedule at the moment would never allow for the grueling rehearsal commitment.” She left the door open though, for appearing on the show in the future with her husband, Bill. “Who knows, maybe Bill and I can be on the show together one day and go toe-to-toe for the trophy,” she said.
As iVillage notes, it is no surprise that the 37-year-old entertainment journalist cannot find time to compete on the show. Although she has spent the last six months dealing with breast cancer and treatment, hasn’t slowed down. She anchors E! News and Fashion Police, plus covers red carpet events. She and Bill also have their own Style Network reality show called Giuliana & Bill.
The cast for DWTS season 14 is still a well-kept secret and will not be revealed until next week on Good Morning America. Still, there was speculation that Rep. Michelle Bachmann and former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain would join the cast, but they both said no. Meanwhile, dancing instructor Maksim Chmerkovskiy told Entertainment Tonight that he might not be returning to the show. “I didn't get the call yet,” he said.
