The president said Sean Spicer’s “future is bright” in a tweet following the press secretary’s abrupt resignation last week. He may be right. Spicer could be headed for the bright lights of a studio, as the television show “Dancing With The Stars” is reportedly courting him, according to Page Six.
The report says Spicer was in New York City on Wednesday, discussing opportunities with “major broadcasters.” He was reportedly seen leaving meetings with ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox News in Manhattan, sources say. Apparently, some networks are very interested, and others are just checking out the possibility of landing Spicer, who has worked closely with the Trump administration for months.
Spicer, 45, may start his television debut on the set of a reality show, however, if one TV insider is correct. According to Page Six, DWTS has been in contact with Spicer.
Spicer wouldn’t be the first political figure to join the cast of DWTS. In 2009, Tom DeLay, the former Republican Party House Majority Leader, joined the cast. He was injured during the competition and was forced to remove himself, but by all accounts he had no shot at the mirror-ball trophy.
Neither did current energy secretary and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry. He was also a contestant, appearing at the end of last year. During his season, Perry formed an unlikely friendship with singer Vanilla Ice, but he fell far short of the end prize, having been eliminated in only the second round.
Hopefully, Spicer would stay a bit longer, if he does decide to join the cast.
Spicer was asked to comment on the offer, and reportedly said: “I have no comment.”
A representative for ABC would not comment on casting. The show typically waits to make casting announcements until they near the premier of each season.
