Tyra Banks Is Reportedly Banning ‘Real Housewives’ From ‘DWTS’
Apparently, Tyra Banks is trying to set some ground rules for Dancing With The Stars. Ok Magazine reports that the host is trying to ban any Real Housewives cast members from being on the show.
The word is that casting agents are already looking to book celebrities for their next season. However, Tyra has let it be know that she doesn’t want anyone on the show who is part of the Bravo franchises.
According to sources, “Tyra is the new boss and made it clear that she didn’t want any more Housewives in her ballroom. She thinks the show needs to aim higher and only book the ladies after everyone else has passed. Several ladies from the Bravo franchise have already made it clear that they would love to put on their dancing shoes, but Tyra doesn’t want any of them right now.”
Sources add, “Tyra has never been a fan of the Housewives, but the real reason she doesn’t want them on her show is that Bethenny Frankel, NeNe Leakes, and Teresa Giudice do not make headlines anymore.”
“Tyra wants reality stars like Carole Baskin from Tiger King – not a decade-old franchise that no one talks about anymore. If Tyra thought for one minute that the Housewives would get her show ratings, she would welcome them to the dance floor in a second.”
Dancing With The Stars airs Mondays on ABC.
