Kathy Griffin Won't Be Dancing With the Stars

at . Comments

Give Dancing With the Stars credit: the show is living up to its pledge to find edgier celebrities for next season.

Just one problem: the celebries don't wanna dance.

Kathy Griffin, for example, was approached to be a contestant. But the reality TV star and comedian turned the show down.

"I have a hard offer for Dancing with the Stars," she said, citing the reason why she won't be appearing: "I can't even touch my toes!"

Sorry, Dancing with the Stars fans: you won't be enjoying this sight in the fall.

Similarly, a spokesperson for former U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle said the series did not land this casting coup.

"There was contact [made]" and "there was interest in having him be on the show," but at the end of the day the Indianapolis native said noe. Er, no. "I can tell you that he is not doing the show," said the rep.
