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

OMG 21

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?

The tanning mom Patricia Krentcil?? Really?? Are they THAT desperate for a cast that they offered a dancing position to a woman who's skin is in the process of turning to leather?

If I was Farrah, I would turn it down and wait for a better offer.

Don't you dare put the tanning mom or the "Teen Mom" on the show. 


Ellen Propp

Would love to watch and see her get the boot. She was one of the rudest girls on teen mom.

Sidney Ruff

Just say no to the "porn star" teen mom, and the tanning mom .  You can definitely do better than that!


Debby Heinz

If I remember correctly you shared on your page that she is pregnant. How can she do both.

Making a porno film is hardly an "honest living".
