A “Duck Dynasty” star might be coming to prime-time TV this fall.
Sadie Robertson, daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson, is reportedly slated to appear on the 19th season of “Dancing With the Stars.”
Contestants on the celebrity dance competition won’t be officially announced and confirmed by ABC until September 4, but US Weekly reported that an unnamed source exclusively told the outlet that 17-year-old Sadie Robertson is a confirmed contender.
The claim is particularly interesting considering that Korie Robertson expressed her daughter’s interest in “Dancing With the Stars” during an interview with US Weekly back in May.
“I think that our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it,” Korie Robertson said. ”Sadie I think wants to maybe be on a talk show and she wants to be on ‘Dancing with the Stars’!”
According to UPI, other prospective contestants include actress Janel Parrish, athlete Lolo Jones and actor Antonio Sabato Jr.
Sadie Robertson’s potential casting on “Dancing With the Stars” comes amid reports of lower ratings for A&E’s “Duck Dynasty.” The slump follows contentious comments about sin and homosexuality made by family patriarch Phil Robertson.
