Scott Disick has had a rough few months since splitting from longtime girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian in July, but it seems things are finally looking up. According to reports, the father of three has been offered a new TV gig.
Scott, 32, may be making the jump from E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” to ABC’s hit competition series “Dancing With the Stars.” TMZ claims the reality star, who has struggled with his sobriety for many years, has been invited to join the cast. Although starring on the show is something he is said to have shown an interest in in the past, Scott is reportedly seeking at least $500,000 for testing out his dancing chops. According to TMZ, “DWTS” has a strict policy of paying all contestants the same amount. Despite these claims, it has been reported that Scott was guaranteed $125,000 to do the show with an additional $345,000 for making it to the finals.
Scott isn’t the only one rumored to be joining the Season 22 cast. Just days after being released from house arrest, “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice was said to be considering appearing on “DWTS.” Those rumors were quickly shut down in a report from Page Six on Feb. 8. A source told the publication Teresa had been “offered a six-figure sum” for competing on the show. Despite the major payout, she reportedly decided it wasn’t the right time to take on such a job. The source added that she planned to use her time after prison to focus on “her family and being there for her children.”
Jodie Sweetin, a star of Netflix’s upcoming “Full House” reboot “Fuller House,” was also thought to be considering “DWTS.” Despite many rumors swirling about her involvement in the series, she told fans she would not be taking to the ballroom. On Feb. 4 Sweetin tweeted that the rumors began after brothers Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy, two of the professional dancers on “DWTS,” made guest appearances on “Fuller House,” which will be released on Feb. 26.
Omg! So many rumors flying around! We had Maks and Val on an episode of #FullerHouse and now everyone is saying I'm on DWTS! :) I AM a fan!
