When embroiled in a scandal for selling off access to your husband, there is really only one thing you can do: Go on reality TV. But not just any show. No. Survivor is too sweaty, Celebrity Apprentice is too Donald Trumpy, and The Hills only leads to unnecessary plastic surgeries.
But Dancing with the Stars…now there is a program that can revitalize an image. Just look at Kate Gosselin! All she did was stomp around and make faces like she had to go to the bathroom and all of a sudden she’s all over the newspapers and tabs and TV pulling in the mommy crowd (or at least some of the mommy crowd).
It would be perfect for Fergie, Dutchess of York. Or, at least that’s what she thinks. She clearly desperately needs the money. Could it happen?
The last season just ended last night, but casting has no doubt started. I am pulling for Betty White to make it on, but they’ll need more than her for ratings gold. Fergie’s super willing and I believe some modicum of notoriety and a whole lot of ambition is all it takes.
“I’d quite like to go on `Dancing with the Stars,’” Fergie tells “Inside Edition” in an interview that is scheduled to air Thursday. “I’d like them to teach me the tango.”
Wonder what her daughters princesses Beatrice, 18, and Eugenie, 16, and even the Queen of England think about this? It seems so un-royal. But so does hawking of your personal connections for cash so, you know, whatever.
