Tony Blair on DWTS?
We’re nearing the end of the latest season of ABC’s "Dancing with the Stars." It’s been weeks since astronaut Buzz Aldrin was eliminated, but the new ‘buzz’ is surrounding next season’s potential contestants. The Washington Times is blogging that the ABC show has offered former British Prime Minister Tony Blair $381,000 to compete next season. Executive producer Conrad Green told the Prime Minister, "Tony, you've done everything you can as Prime Minister, you've done your bit for the Middle East, now come and put some sequins on and have a real life." That’s an interesting way to make a pitch. The show reportedly also reached out to former President Bill Clinton. "I did ask Clinton once; we rang up his office. But sadly, the conversation only lasted as long as it took to say 'Dancing With the' before they hung up," Green commented.
