Will the third time be the charm? Emily Maynard is reportedly set to compete in next season’s Dancing With the Stars!
Already a two-time reality-show veteran, thanks to her appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Emily is switching it up by changing her search for love into a search for bragging rights to the coveted victory mirror ball. Star magazine reports that her appearance on the dance competition was part of the deal she made with ABC when she agreed to star on Bachelorette.
But this new project will mean some big changes for Emily and her adorable daughter, Ricki.
The network allowed much of the Bachelorette filming to take place in Emily’s hometown of Charlotte, NC, which allowed her and Ricki to maintain a fairly normal schedule. Not so with Dancing, which is L.A.-based. Emily will have to fly out regularly for several months for rehearsal and taping. No word on whether Ricki will come along to cheer on her mom from the green room.
Emily hasn’t officially confirmed the news, but this rumor sounds like it’s on the level. The show has often featured reality stars, including Bristol Palin, Rob Kardashian, Kate Gosselin, and fellow Bachelor alum Melissa Rycroft (who just won the All-Stars edition).
What do you think? Are you psyched to see Emily on the dance floor?
