Will Oscar winning actress Renee Zellweger be added to the official roster for those joining the next season of ABC’s hit show Dancing With The Stars?
Reportedly, the head honchos in charge of the show want Renee to be part of an all Academy Award winners season of the show. Snitches close to the situation say that Renee would be “offered mega bucks to do DWTS and compete for the chance of putting the mirror ball trophy next to her Oscar.”
The idea going back and forth within production is an “all Oscar winners series, that would include former Academy Award winners from all eras. Renee, who won the best supporting actress Oscar for Cold Mountain in 20904, is being seen as the lynchpin contestant that would seal the deal for the theme season.”
The source went on to say, “The producers are fixated on Renee, in part because she hasn’t done much dancing at all since Chicago more than ten years ago and there’s this real mystery about her and what she’s up to.”
The source said, “They keep raising the amount of money they are willing to give her in the hopes that she’ll say yes, and the theory is that if they can get her to sign on, then it would attract some other really prominent Oscar winning stars — who wouldn’t normally do reality TV — to fall in step. Now that the rule that stars had to be total dance novices has been broken, it opens the door wide for someone like Renee, who hoofed it in Chicago, to strut her stuff.”
The spy added, “The DWTS masterminds think the idea of having a theme of Oscar winners would be a sure ratings-grabber. And it would be the perfect springtime ABC tie-in because the network already controls the rights to the Academy Awards show.”
