Throughout the years, we've seen handfuls of interesting characters on Dancing With the Stars. We had our doubts when Kim Kardashian stepped on stage what feels like ages ago. And oh man, remember the circus surrounding Metta World Peace! With season 16 right around the corner, it looks like ABC may have found their next brilliant shining star in Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's mama June. Yup, rumors are swirling that the mother hen of the Boo Boos (as I love to call them) may have snagged herself a spot on the next season. Mama June on DWTS?! Can you even believe it?
And although we won't really know if she's made the cut until they announce the cast on Good Morning America on Monday, March 18 -- I'm just gonna say this: Casting mama June on DWTS would be one of the best decisions ABC ever made. At the very least, better than their decision to cast Sean Lowe as The Bachelor.
June. Is. Hilarious. There's really no other way to sum up her crazy antics. I can only imagine the train wreck that would occur when producers put her in a blinged out dancing costume and ask her to dance the foxtrot alongside a much more experienced dancing pro. And oh gosh! Can you imagine her taking feedback? And talking to Brooke Burke backstage?
Even better: Imagine how she could interact with the other A-listers (or D-listers) picked for the cast? I can just see it now -- she and DWTS hopeful Kourtney Kardashian talking over the different approaches they have to parenting.
The best part of this big rumor, though? Thinking about June's family sitting front and center in the audience. Alana just sitting there, hooting and hollering, munching on pork rinds. That alone would make the entire season worth watching, for me at least.
Do you think mama June would be a good pick for season 16 of DWTS? Who do you want to see shake things up?
