Rachel Lindsay “Dancing With The Stars” Claims NOT True
Rachel Lindsay is not competing on the new season of “Dancing with the Stars,” nor is she already in talks for future seasons. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.
“Rachel Lindsay Heading To ‘DWTS’ After Being Named Next ‘Bachelorette’?” asks the perennial clueless HollywoodLife. The misinformed webloid announces in its story, “Lucky Rachel Lindsay! Not only is she going to be searching for love as the next Bachelorette, she could be getting to put some hot moves on a pro dancer!” It’s specifically alleged Lindsay will be “on the hunt for a Mirrorball trophy! The Dallas attorney is going to be following in the footsteps of many other Bachelor and Bachelorette stars by competing on an upcoming season of ‘Dancing with the Stars.'”
Giving a suspiciously broad window of time, a so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Within the next two seasons of ‘DWTS,’ producers with the show and ABC are trying to lock down what season she will do. They want to take advantage of all the positive press they expect from it all, but are just weighing the pros and cons of doing it early or not.”
“One of the decisions to make the announcement for her being on ‘The Bachelorette’ was because if they put her on this season of ‘DWTS’ it wouldn’t seem super random,” the outlet’s alleged tipster further claims. Says the site, “Rachel starts filming her search for love in a couple of weeks so ABC better make a decision quick. ”
Uh, not so fast. Gossip Cop has exclusively learned that HollywoodLies’ speculative story is completely off-base. Lindsay will absolutely NOT be on the new spring season of “Dancing with the Stars,” as it’s not “physically possible,” we’re told, given that the shooting schedule conflicts with production on “The Bachelorette.” We’ve confirmed, “She was just named the bachelorette. No one’s even mentioned any of this… They’re focusing on her search for love, not her being on the dance floor.”
And, we’re also told, “The next [fall] season isn’t being thought of yet, either, right now. If and when that happens, it’s going to be a long time before that decision is made.” In fact, all of the premature allegations from HollywoodLife can be summed up in one word: “Ridiculous.”
