Ralph Macchio Not Doing DWTS All-Stars: “I Hear It’s Finalists”
Wax Ralph Macchio off your list for Dancing With the Stars All-Stars. Ralph and Karina Smirnoff just missed making the top three on DWTS Season 12 and that may be the thing that keeps the Karate Kid away from fall’s Season 15.
"I think that cast is set already," Ralph told USA Today on Monday, when they asked if he would be doing All-Stars. "I hear it's finalists.”
"I never campaigned," he noted, unlike some other stars. "I would have been flattered if they came to me, but I think it happened at the right time." Ralph has a new docu-series called American Gypsies premiering on National Geographic.
We’re sorry to hear Ralph won’t be on the official cast list, which will be revealed Friday, July 27. But if he’s right about DWTS only going with finalists, that would mean Sabrina Bryan, Maria Menounos, Carson Kressley and (*yay*) Kate Gosselin are all out of the running. Would they really do that, when there’s been so much interest in Sabrina and Carson, especially? That said, if they do stick with finalists, that would open the door to celebs including open campaigner Joey Lawrence, the other finalist named Joey — Joey Fatone — plus fan favorite Gilles Marini and … uh … Bristol Palin.
Assuming Ralph is correct, which finalists (top three) would you like to see return? Weigh in onour Facebook page.
