Nikki Bella says she was “not asked” to join “Dancing with the Stars,” despite reports. The wrestler and reality star is denying that she’s already signed on to be part of the season 25 cast this fall. Check out the video below.

On Monday, People reported Bella would be among the celebrities gracing the ballroom in September, along with “Property Brothers” star Drew Scott. E! also said its own sources confirmed she’d be one of the upcoming season’s new stars. But the “Total Divas” star herself is now saying otherwise.

During an appearance on Tuesday’s Fox’s “Good Day New York,” co-anchor Rosanna Scotto said, “Nikki, I gotta ask you. It’s all over the Internet — ‘Dancing with the Stars.” She responded, “I saw that! Look, if I got the opportunity to do ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I would love to do it. I think I have some goods in me.” Pressed for a clear-cut answer on whether she was asked to participate, Bella said point-blank, “Me? No, I have not been asked.”

Would she do it, if producers came knocking? “I think so,” she responded. “I would have to talk to [fiancé] John [Cena] about it.” Sister Brie chimed in that she’d be interested in being a contestant, too, but suggested 2018 would be a better year for them both. Agreed Bella, “I could heal my neck [injury] fully,” while Brie would have more time to recover from having a baby in May.

It’s worth noting that during a “Total Divas” episode that aired in April, Bella was seen talking to her agent about a purported “Dancing with the Stars” offer, and said she had to “pass.” It’s still possible she could end up on the dance floor next month, as there’s still plenty of time for producers to round out the new cast. Is Bella just trying to keep it all under wraps for now? As they say in show business, stay tuned. Season 25 “Dancing with the Stars” is slated to premiere on September 18. See video of Bella’s comments below, starting at the 5-minute mark.

UPDATE: Bella officially joined the “Dancing with the Stars” cast on September 6.
