'Teen Mom' & 'DWTS' May Soon Have One Star in Common


by Sasha Brown-Worsham

Get ready y'all, some of the biggest news in entertainment history (at least by The Stir standards) is rumored to be happening. It looks like Farrah Abraham of Teen Mom fame is about to shake her fanny to the front of the stage as part of the season 17 cast of Dancing With the Stars. It's crazy. It's wild. I will give you a moment to let it sink in.

We are talking Farrah Abraham. On DWTS, people! This is momentous! She isn't the only one. There is also talk of John Stamos, former baseball player Jason Varitek, Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil, a wrestler, Bella Thorne, and Seth MacFarlane. Quite a cast, if it happens (and lord knows I would love to see MacFarlane).

But still. Farrah. I am not sure what to make of that. I am not shocked. DTWS is notorious for capitalizing on fad celebrities like Bristol Palin among others. She might be good for ratings. Also: This is a step up from porn, right?

But Dancing With the Stars was originally a vehicle for has-been A-listers to get their groove back. Now, it has become ... something else.

Farrah's "fame" is mostly like that of a circus freak. No one is looking at her thinking wow, she is so cool. The people who like her feel that way because she is good looking (which she is), but others watch her just because she is such a train wreck. But let's not forget she is famous because she had a baby as a teenager. She is, perhaps, not THE most stable person in the world.

On the other hand, she is earning an honest living for her daughter by being on this show. And we all know from Bristol's time on the show that DWTS is notoriously good to young, single moms. It's not all bad.

Maybe this will be Farrah's breakthrough. Maybe despite all the doubt and eye rolls most of us have sent her way, she will come out on top and shake it hard and take home the mirror ball. Stranger things have happened. And what better way to actually legitimize her fame? Hell, I will even root for her. That would be a sight to see.

What do you think of Farrah on DWTS?

I had a feeling before opening this that it would be Farrah! I'll watch but I don't know that I'll be rooting for her.

This must be the joke season. The ' we are going to out together the most ridiculous group of people and see it fall apart!' Season

They must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel if they need her. There has to be someone with actual talent they can choose and not a teen mom who makes "back door" videos.

Have not watch DWTS in years that show has been going down hill the last couple of seasons.
