Robin Quivers rejected Dancing with the Stars

Howard Stern’s radio sidekick Robin Quivers has revealed that she turned down the chance to join Dancing with the Stars.

Quivers told Stern this week that Dancing with the Stars producers asked her to compete on the reality series in the past, but she has refused their offers “three times now”.

The radio host said that the travel required would be too demanding because Stern’s radio show is broadcast from New York, while Dancing with the Stars tapes in LA.

Producers were apparently so anxious to sign her that they even offered her a private jet to shuttle her between both coasts.

“They said they would get me there; I said, ‘No you won’t’,” Quivers commented.

The star has served as Stern’s newswoman and co-host for more than 30 years and has also published the best-selling book Quivers: A Life.

Beth Stern won't be "Dancing with the Stars"

The stars for Season 9 were announced by Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron on Good Morning America.

Perhaps even more surprising than the sheer number of “stars” competing in this seasons’ competition (there are SIXTEEN “celebrity” dancers), were the names NOT included on the list of D-list stars, including Beth Ostrosky, better known to fans as Mrs. Howard Stern.

Beth joining Dancing with the Stars?

While fans of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars wait with bated breath for the announcement of the “celebrities” scheduled to cut a rug for the upcoming ninth season, gossip speculators are going wild trying to predict what B-listers will take the dance floor this time around. With names like Sherri Shepherd, LaToya Jackson and Paula Abdul being bandied about as possibilities, those with their finger on the pulse of the celebrity buzz scene may be overlooking one very attractive prospect: Mrs. Howard Stern.

Howard Stern has said that his wife/model/entertainment correspondent/animal activist/trophy “Beth O” will be traveling to Los Angeles next month to participate in a televised reality show in some capacity, but the King of All Media is keeping quiet on the details. Although Howard Stern has stated that Beth O is scheduled to be gone on her mysterious Hollywood mission for “about a month” (probably not long enough to be on Dancing with the Stars) some fans see the statement as the weakest of subterfuge.

Beth O’s imminent departure has been a hot topic on The Howard Stern Show, with many of Howard Stern’s cast members projecting that their leader will enter a cranky tailspin while his queen is away. The Sterns are fans of Dancing with the Stars, and Howard Stern regularly discusses the reality show on-air.
