USA Today reports:
“Dancing with the Stars” cast a wide net in its search for Season 28 celebrities revealing a field that ranges from former Trump aide (Sean Spicer) to supermodel (Christie Brinkley) to the latest “Bachelorette” (Hannah Brown).
Spicer, 47, who reportedly turned down a “DWTS” offer shortly after leaving the White House in 2017, is a lightning rod for criticism – and attention – among those who object to how he handled his role as President Trump’s press secretary.
Asked if there is any concern that Spicer, whose presence at the 2017 Emmys blew up Twitter, will turn off some viewers, executive producer Andrew Llinares says he’s not courting controversy, but acknowledges Spicer’s notoriety as a “talked-about name.”
