Sean Spicer is reportedly going from the White House to the main stage and sparkly costumes of Dancing with the Stars. He's currently being courted to be a contestant on the reality competition, according to Page Six.
The soon-to-be-former White House press secretary spent the day in New York City talking with major broadcasters about a new career in TV, where he can share his insider knowledge of Donald Trump.
Sean stepped down from his position on Friday. He was later spotted coming out of high-level meetings at ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox News in Manhattan, according to sources. Some execs “made the full-court press” while others “just kicked the tires," one insider said.
There's speculation that ABC’s Dancing with the Stars is Spicey's next stop. “Can’t wait to see Sean Spicer waltz on Dancing With the Stars," Zach Braff jokingly tweeted after he resigned. According to a TV insider, Zach's joke might actually become a reality! “That has legs,” the source told Page Six.
It wouldn't be the first time someone in politics appeared on the reality show. Gov. Rick Perry was on DWTS after losing to Trump in the GOP primary. He was the second contestant eliminated from the show, so Sean should hope he's better than that.
When asked if we'll be seeing him do the Cha-Cha on TV any time soon, Sean said: “I have no comment.” An ABC rep said, “We don’t comment on casting.”
