Season 17 of Dancing With The Stars is just a few short weeks away, and the casting rumors have already for the new season. Now, we’ve learned that Country music star, Jo Dee Messina may be joining the season 17 cast!
The casting rumors for the new season are well underway, with such names as John Stamos, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abbey Lee Miller, Jason Varitek, and Eddie Fox on the list of possibilities. But now, another name has been added to the list – Jo Dee Messina!
The Country singer actually revealed the news herself, as she took to her Facebook page recently and posted: “Well, got in from touring this week. It’s the longest I’ve been away from my Mom in months. As soon as we got in I headed to the airport to fly to L.A. I had a meeting with the folks at ABC and Dancing With The Stars. I’m hoping to get on there for the fall season. (fingers crossed) The folks out there were so nice. I really enjoyed meeting with them.”
While none of the rumors have been confirmed, it looks like Messina may actually get a shot at the mirror ball trophy, if the negotiations and meeting went well.
The new cast is set to be officially announced on September 4 on GMA. The new season kicks off on September 16.
