Jennie Garth to Boogie Down on Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments
Jennie Garth Don't look now, but Dancing with the Stars has apparently become the publicity platform of choice for former Beverly Hills 90210 stars looking to revitalize their careers.

After Ian Ziering finished fourth with professional partner Cheryl Burke during the show recently concluded fourth season, it was reported that Tori Spelling - his fellow former 90210 star and current co-star of Oxygen's Tori & Dean: Inn Love - was in discussions with producers to appear on the show's Fall 2007 installment.

Now Ziering has spilled the beans that he talked another fellow former 90210 star, Jennie Garth, into two-stepping on Dancing with the Stars, In Touch Weekly reported in its June 18 issue.

"We texted each other back and forth," Ziering told In Touch about his conversations with Garth, who unlike most of the rest of her former 90210 co-stars, found four more seasons of regular television work on The WB's What I Like About You sitcom after 90210 ended its 10-year run in 2000.

"She had a lot of trepidation at first," Ziering told In Touch. "And as an actor, it's scary because there is no second take. If you screw up, it's out there for everyone to see."

Garth's publicist Nicole Nassar confirmed In Touch's report to Access Hollywood on Wednesday. "It's official [Garth will be doing the show next season]," she said.
