OMG — Is Hillary Clinton joining the Season 24 cast of Dancing With the Stars?!
According to Us Weekly, the 69-year-old Democratic presidential nominee was asked to appear on the hit show’s upcoming season but, “She said no.” What a bummer!
Former First Lady Michelle Obama was also reportedly contacted about joining DWTS for Season 24 but turned down the opportunity too.

Had Michelle, 53, and Hillary agreed to appear on the reality show — which premiered back in June 2005! — they wouldn’t have been the first political figures on the series. Former Governor of Texas Rick Perry previously starred on the show’s 23rd season in September 2012. He and his pro partner, Emma Slater, were voted off in the competition’s third week, finishing in 12th place.
Rumors have been swirling for weeks about the series’ upcoming cast. Though the full lineup won’t be officially announced until Wednesday, March 1, stars including Nancy Kerrigan, Simone Biles, Mr. T, and Nick Viall are all thought to be joining the show.
“[There are also] a couple of movie stars who are showing interest,” a DWTS source revealed. “They’re just trying to put together a good cast.”

Though we don’t yet know the confirmed Season 24 DWTS cast, we have heard two of the program’s most popular pro dancers, Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, are definitely returning to the show!
The engaged couple recently welcomed their first child together, son Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy, on Jan. 4. “It’s been some time, I’m definitely a little bit nervous, but I’m very excited to get back. I’ve definitely missed the dance floor,” Peta, 30, told Good Morning America.
“[The] only difficult part about coming back on the show this time [is] because it will just take time away from being with [Shai], but like I said I just want to make her coming back and winning as difficult as possible,” Maks joked of facing off against his soon-to-be wife. Too cute!
