Terra Jole gave birth to a baby boy on August 1st, but it looks like she won't on maternity leave much longer.
Sources tell Entertainment Tonight that the Little Women: LA star has officially signed on for season 23 of Dancing With The Stars, which returns September 12th at 8 p.m. on ABC.
New moms are usually told to stay away from exercise for six weeks after giving birth (longer for C-sections), and rehearsals for the upcoming season are most definitely under way.
Jole's doctor may have given her the green light, because there's a mirror ball involved and her this kind of a project could do wonders for her career. Health scmealth, am I right?
According to ET, a sneak peek at Little Women: LA's mid-season episode shows a pregnant Jole belly dancing with friends. Producers might try to edit that as a link to her participation on DWTS.
Jole, 36, and her husband, Joe Gnoffo are also parents to daughter, Penelope, 1. Jole hasn't made a comment about the rumor, since participants are sworn to secrecy until the big reveal, which usually happens on Good Morning America.
Other participants who reportedly signed on for season 23 are Amber Rose, Ryan Lochte, former Disney star Jake T. Austin and General Hospital's Emma Samms.
I'm psyched to see Rose as part of the line-up. She'll add a little spice to what is otherwise considered kind of a goody two-shoes run. And of course, there's Lochte.
Though the network doesn't officially comment on casting rumors, it has confirmed the return of professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who hasn't been on the show since 2014.
Other pros who are part of this next season are Maksim's younger brother Val, Sharna Burgess, Lindsay Arnold, Gleb Savchenko., Allison Holker, Sasha Farber, Emma Slater, Witney Carson, and Artem Chigvintsev.
