Hold your horses, y’all; Emily Maynard isn’t yet packing her tap shoes for a stint on Dancing With the Stars. While Star Magazine reports Emily is locked in for the next season, an inside source tells us “Emily is not yet confirmed,” but adds that a DWTS tenure is not off the table. Another source — one close to Emily — assures us that the Season 8 Bachelorette is very much interested in the opportunity. “She definitely wants to do the show.”

So, before you get all riled up about what will happen to Ricki if Emily has to spend a significant chunk of time in California, take a deep breath. While it’s entirely possible we will see Em do her best Running Man, nothing is set in stone. And, after today’s report from The New York Post that DWTS might be cutting back to one season per year, Em might have some time to brush up on her foxtrot.
