Ariana Madix is using her new-found super fame to expand her brand … apparently joining “Dancing with the Stars” in Sept., according to a new report.
“ABC is in late stage conversations with [Madix] to be a contestant to join ‘DWTS’ this fall” … a show insider told Page 6.
It’s a bit complicated, since “Vanderpump Rules” is on Bravo — owned by NBC — and ‘DWTS’ is on ABC, but these things get worked out all the time.
It’s an interesting move …. ‘DWTS’ won’t air until September, and the highly-anticipated reunion ‘VPR’ show will air months before. But ABC clearly thinks the Scandavol has legs.
Ariana has reached the status of a heroine, at least among her fellow cast. This is a huge opportunity for her … going from bartender to, as she hopes, actress. ‘DWTS’ could be a gateway to her goal as she’s also set to appear in a Lifetime movie.
