Sean Spicer Turned Down 'Dancing With the Stars,' Source Says
By Jennifer Drysdale
Sean Spicer won't be dancing anytime soon.
The former White House Press Secretary was offered a spot on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars, but declined, a source tells ET, noting that "There’s a lot of opportunities for him right now including network TV gigs."
ET has learned that Spicer recently signed with powerhouse lawyer Bob Barnett, who is representing him for numerous projects including TV deals. Barnett represents top TV news personalities such as NBC’s Brian Williams, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and Fox News’ Neil Cavuto.
ET has reached out to DWTS for comment.
While DWTS builds its cast of celebrities for season 25, pro Peta Murgatroyd recently told ET that she's not sure if she'll return to the show.
“To be honest, we don't know yet,” she said of herself and her dancer hubby, Maks Chmerkovskiy returning. “We're sort of waiting to hear things, waiting to see what our schedules are gonna be like, so, yeah, I mean stayed tuned.”
