Taylor Armstrong, Regis Philbin to Go Dancing With the Stars?

by at . Comments

With ratings down last season, Dancing With the Stars is under the gun from ABC to live up to its name and land a buzz-worthy crop of contenders this spring.

J.R. Martinez, last season's winner, proved enormously popular - once he was cast on it. He was probably one of the least-known celebrities prior to the show.

ABC reportedly wants to change that and is willing to bust out big bucks to bag big names and generate serious buzz next go-around. One rumored target:

"We would love to have the drama and emotion that Taylor Armstrong would bring to the show," said an insider, adding that they are also looking to balance that out.

"The lovability that Regis Philbin has given audiences for decades" makes the retired talk show host a perfect fit, as does “ABC's wonderful relationship with Regis."

In the last few weeks and months since the show has ended, the reality competition reached out to Kendall and Kylie Jenner and various Republican candidates.

Michele Bachmann on Dancing With the Stars? Now that'd be something. She's got a lot more free time after quitting the presidential rate too. Just saying!
