Wendy to Join 'Dancing With the Stars' Cast

That's what her publicist Page Six says:
Vivacious talk-show giant Wendy Williams will try her two-step as a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars," Page Six has learned. "The Wendy Williams Show" will go on hiatus while she participates next month. Ample-cleavaged Williams -- who would no doubt look great in the show's trademark sparkly outfits -- has been critical of other contestants on the dance competition, especially wooden Kate Gosselin, who she said "dances awkward and horrible." But towering at 5 feet, 11 inches without heels and with even bigger hair, Williams will need a powerful partner to whirl and twirl her. Her rep told us, "We have no confirmation on that." A rep for Williams' show said, "Production hasn't added any last-minute or unplanned hiatus days to the schedule."
We're a little shocked by this, primarily because Wendy has admitted that she can't and doesn't dance because she has no rhythm (plus, she's said on the radio several years ago that if she were invited to do DWTS, she would say no because she doesn't want the "exposure") so it would be interesting to see her tackle DWTS without looking "awkward and horrible." Clearly, she doesn't intend to win, because, according to this report, her talk show is only going on hiatus for one month. (A full of DWTS is usually 10 weeks.) BTW: The cast will be announced Feb. 28 and the 12th season of DWTS premiers March 21.

UPDATE, Feb. 28: Wendy is in. Her partner will be Tony Dovolani. She joins the cast of washed-up "celebrities" like the "dumbest person on TV" Kendra Wilkinson. Also dancing are: former boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, model Petra Nemcova; former actor Ralph Macchio; former actress, Kirstie Alley; Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward; professional wrestler Chris Jericho; "Loveline" radio show co-host Mike Catherwood; Lil' Romeo; and Chelsea Kane of Disney Channel's "Jonas." Wow. The show's producers really scraped the bottom of the barrel for this one. Wendy actually has a shot of winning -- well at least she'll survive a couple eliminations since that's written in her contract and it will be long enough to draw viewers to her fledgling show and increase ratings. Our money is on Kendra to win the mirror ball trophy, though. That bitch knows how to dance!
