It looks like Bachelorette Emily Maynard might be extending her 15 minutes eons of fame as Radar is reporting that she’s already signed on to be a contestant for the next season of Dancing with the Stars.

According to one of those infamous “sources close to the situation,” Maynard signed up for DWTS when she agreed to try her luck at love on The Bachelorette after failing to do so when picked by Bachelor Brad Womack.

“When she signed her contract to be on The Bachelorette, ABC also had her sign on to commit to doing Dancing with the Stars. She loves being in the limelight.”

The source went on to emphasize what they perceive to be Emily’s need for fame.

“Emily told me the real reason she wants to do the show is to help get herself her own talk show. She’s terrified of losing her fame. She loves being famous and has wanted it her entire life.”

Time will bear out if this report is accurate but it does make sense. It would also complete the perfect ABC reality love circle for Maynard. It would be kind of like a Disney (ABC’s parent company) ending if Emily took home the Mirrorball Trophy and found love in the arms of one of those shirtless, hunky dancer dudes.
