Where do disgraced celebrities go to prove their contrition and win back the hearts of Americans? Dancing With the Stars, of course. So it's no shocker that Page Six is reporting that DWTS wants locker room talker Billy Bush for their spring lineup.
Sources tell the publication, "It comes in March. That’s far enough away. Everybody goes on to do the apology tour. It’s ironic there is Ryan Lochte on, who he started this controversy with when he started with Today." They could even consider changing the show's name to Dancing With the Dishonored. Well, that's maybe not as catchy.
Bush will likely lose his job at NBC's Today, due to a breach of the "morality clause" of his contract caused by his failure to make NBC top executives aware of the 2005 Access Hollywood tape featuring his and Donald Trump's lewd conversation. Sources say it's just a "matter of time" before his firing is announced.
A different source told Page Six, Bush's "likability factor has always been off anyway as a lot of viewers find him annoying." So he's going to have do a pretty major overhaul of his entire persona for him to change any minds. Sounds easy enough (lol). And DWTS is as good a place to start as any.
