Timing is everything in life, and it remains to be seen if the timing of this news puts Kym Johnson out of the pro picture for Dancing With the Stars Season 16.
 
The gorgeous Aussie pro was just named as part of the 2013 cast of The Celebrity Apprentice Australia. According to The Australian, the 14 contestants were given their first challenge on Wednesday, January 30, and the series will air down in Oz after Easter.

Meanwhile, DWTS Season 16 premieres Monday, March 18 on ABC. The cast should be revealed just a couple of weeks from now in February, which is also when the couples will start rehearsing. It’s hard to see how Kym could manage both, but we’re not clear on the schedules. Maybe she has something figured out with the DWTS brass. Or maybe she’s sitting out this season. A season without Kym would definitely disappoint us (the two-time champ has been on every season except Season 10, since starting with the show on Season 3), but we’d be cheering her to win Apprentice.

What do you think? It sounds like Kym is off having a great adventure, but will you miss her if it means she can’t be with us this spring?
