Dancing With The Stars To Cast Farrah Abraham For Season 17?

August 22, 2013 01:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Here we go again, folks! Season 17 of Dancing With The Stars is a few weeks away, and we’ve already heard a few names that could possibly be joining the cast for the new season. One that you may not have expected to hear, however, is Teen Mom turned porn star Farrah Abraham. Rumor has it the controversial reality star may indeed be part of the cast this season.

We’ve certainly seen our share of controversial contestants on Dancing With The Stars in the past, such as Bristol Palin and Chaz Bono, so do we really need another? Unfortunately, we all know that controversy brings ratings, and it looks like Dancing With The Stars may be looking for a controversial contestant for the upcoming season. Rumor now has it that the controversial contestant this season may just be Farrah Abraham. Ick.

In fact, one show insider told The Hollywood Reporter recently: “So far, they are awaiting confirmations from John Stamos, former baseball player Jason Varitek, Paula Deen, Backdoor Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil, a WWE Superstar, Bella Thorne and Seth MacFarlane! They are hoping for confirmations soon, but it’s coming down to the last minute. None of these people are definites, but they have been asked and it’s in their hand.”

Okay, so technically, if you add the “tanning mom,” that makes two controversial contestants.

For those who are not familiar with her, Farrah Abraham was a star on MTV’s Teen Mom series, who made headlines earlier this year when she sold a sex tape that she made with porn star James Deen.

The new cast is set to be announced on September 4 on GMA. The new season kicks off on September 16.

    If Farrah Abraham is signed as a contestant on DWTS I will not watch a single episode. They are getting desperate for contestants if they are looking to sign a former teen mom turned porn star. What the hell are they thinking? Controversial I can totally agree with but disgusting is another issue completely. I hope they reconsider…

    I thought it was disgusting when they chose Bristol Palin as a make believe star and then kept making excuses about why she danced so poorly. Everyone thought she was just a joke–kind of the same with Kirstie Alley — and then they invited them back for another season and called them All Stars. Sometimes you wonder why these people who have no athleticism or dancing musicality wouldn’t be embarrassed/humiliated by going onto this talent show–and the only answer is that they have more greed than common sense.
