Cybill Shepherd contemplates Dancing with the Stars

Just consider Marie Osmond; was anybody knocking on her door for work before she fainted in between the waltzes and sambas? Well, according to Cybill Shepherd, the producers of Dancing with the Stars want her to take part in the competition. Whether they want her or she's saying they want her to get some press, Cybill goes on to say that she could consider being a contestant on the uber-popular reality show, but only if she can find the time to devote to rehearsing.

Cybill has been busy acting of late. She's going to appear on PSYCH in July when the show comes back with new episodes, playing Shawn's mother. There's also a feature called Barry Munday. Seemingly, she could make room in her work schedule for Dancing, and she claims she's really good at it and has fielded offers from them, "I love ballroom dancing. I've been offered Dancing with the Stars and I'd love to do it. I'm sure I could do it. It's just a really hard training period and I just haven't had time to devote to that."

I'd love to believe Cybill when she says that she's sure she could do it. But she also believed she could sing and dance when she made At Long Last Love. Remember that movie, her big-budget movie musical with Burt Reynolds? They were not Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire by any stretch of the imagination. And that was 1975, when Cybill was a spry and supple 25 years old. You think she moves better now at 58? Hmm...I don't think so.

So funny, I wrote this thing about America's Got Talent yesterday and then I woke up this moring to read the NY Post and there just happened to be a great article about the show. It is actually one of my favs and I thought I would post the link here so you all could read it. It really makes me want to watch the show tonight.

I hope that her schedule remains jam-packed. She would make the show all about her and her busy schedule.

My wishlist of DWTS combatants includes Jason Alexander of "Seinfeld" fame. He's gracious, funny and self-deprecating, and because of his Broadway background would take it seriously enough to do a good job.

SNL should do a skit with Bill Clinton as a dancing star.

She should go on America's Got Talent instead. It's much less of a commitment. Haha.

Ya know, I usually don't defend Marie Osmond, but while she wasn't starring in any movies when DWTS came along, she wasn't exactly not well-known and not "Working'. Why do you think she stayed with the show for sooo long, we all know it wasn't because of her fabulous dancing. She has always had a HUGE Fan base, people!, And you don't get that by not keeping yourself busy performing.

What about her Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Is she gonna require a porta-john right next to the dance floor or is she gonna wear a diaper? That could get messy.
