You will never see “stars” from “Real Housewives” on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars”.
"There have been former and current Housewives that have reached out to producers to appear on Dancing With the Stars but the ladies have all been shot down," a source divulged.
"Taylor Armstrong expressed an interest in appearing and she was rejected. Producers of “DWTS” just don't think the ladies are big enough stars to appear on the show.
Of course there are legal issues because Bravo is owned by NBC Universal and Dancing airs on ABC RadarOnline.com reported.
Dueling corporations will likely prevent ANY of the Housewives from ever being offered a slot on the dance-off competition.
But ratings are RATINGS especially where a Melissa Gilbert is still better known than any Housewife.
