Jenny McCarthy Turned Down DWTS Because They Cast D-Listers (Like George Clooney’s Girlfriend)
Last time we checked, Jenny McCarthy wasn’t exactly A-list, but she says the main reason she keeps turning downDancing With the Stars is because they aim high and cast low.
"They ask me every year, and I just can't do it," Jenny toldThe Hollywood Reporter. "I tell them why: You guys keep saying every year you're going to get A-List people and then it's the girl that was with George Clooney... They better talk the walk or walk the talk — whatever that saying is."
It’s safe to say everyone from the producers to the viewers would love to see bigger celebs on DWTS but it will probably take one A-lister bending to start the trend. For a minute there it looked like getting Kirstie Alley on Season 12 might open some doors — the ratings were sky high — but then after a summer of A-list promises, Season 13 went back to the usual crop of B-to-D-listers. However, J.R. Martinez would probably be considered on the D-list this past summer and now he’s on the verge of A-list just from DWTS publicity alone. Keep it in mind, Jenny McCarthy celebs!
