Professional dancer Cheryl Burke could be moving from one ABC competition series to another, if you believe one report. However, another denies that there is any truth to it.
Radar Online sparked rumors on Tuesday that the Dancing with the Stars pro is going to be the next star of The Bachelorette.
"Cheryl has been in talks with producers to be the next Bachelorette and they think she’d be a really good choice," a source that claimed to be close to the show told the site.
“She has a huge fan base, she’s great on television and they definitely think people would want to watch her find true love on TV,” the source added. “Cheryl would be a fun person to have as the Bachelorette, and she was excited when they approached her to be on the show.”
However, E! News’ sources tell fans that there is no truth to the report. One source says that ABC and Burke are discussing doing another reality series together and that they did mention The Bachelorette briefly. However, there are no discussions between her and the network about specifically trading in the dancing shoes for a rose.
“Never gonna happen! Never!” the source told E!, adding that Burke is the one that wants to join The Bachelorette.
Another source explained to E! that ABC prefers going with “real people” for The Bachelor and Bachelorette shows, rather than a celebrity from another series.
Burke has been a professional dancer on DWTS since the series began. This season, she is dancing with former football star Emmitt Smith.
The last season of The Bachelorette saw Emily Maynard pick Jef Holm. However, that relationship ended and Maynard has already reportedly moved on.
