When the cast of Dancing With the Stars Season 17 is announced on Good Morning America next month, don’t be surprised to hear Farrah Abraham’s name called along with John Stamos, Bella Thorne and Seth MacFarlane. That’s right: The “Backdoor Teen Mom” was reportedly asked to do the Farrah Flamenco on the celebrity competition show!
“So far, they are awaiting confirmations from John Stamos, former baseball player Jason Varitek, Paula Deen, Backdoor Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil, a WWE Superstar, Bella Thorne and Seth MacFarlane!” a production source revealed to Hollywood Life. “They are hoping for confirmations soon, but it’s coming down to the last minute. None of these people are definites, but they have been asked and it’s in their hands.”
When we first heard the reports, we thought there was surely a misunderstanding. Did someone get in wrong and mix up the papers when casting Pole Dancing With the Stars?
But, nope! It’s the actual, real deal ABC DWTS the source is talking about… And if it’s true, we can’t imagine the headline-hungry Farrah turning it down!
If the report turns out to be untrue, or if the deal falls through for whatever reason (For example, if Farrah demands that her dance performances be presented as personal videos that were accidentally leaked), Teen Mom fans can still get their dance competition fix thanks to Farrah’s co-star Maci Bookout, who is competing in Chattanooga’s Dare to Dance competition on September 14, which benefits The Kidney Foundation of the Greater Chattanooga Area.

In Farrah’s case, participating in DWTS would be an undeniable step in the right direction — at least in terms of her career. And, it may be wishful thinking, but the competition and intense training might do wonders for toning down Farrah’s teeny-tiny entitlement issue. There’s no crying in ballroom dance!
Would you like to see Farrah on DWTS? (Schadenfreude is a valid reason to say yes.)
