Warren Sapp may be on Dancing with the Stars

In a Q&A with Warren Sapp, the recently retired NFL player, the St. Petersburg Times stumbles into some reality TV news: Sapp has been asked to appear on Dancing with The Stars 7.

In the interview, he said, “I might do that Dancing With the Stars. … it’s something that sort of came out of nowhere. But I enjoy the idea of training for something else. My whole life has been football. I could hang out in L.A. for a few weeks. My daughter would love it. There’s nothing wrong with my smile. I don’t think I speak Ebonics. I think I will (do the show).”

Perhaps because the new season is still a few months off, there hasn’t been much news about who might appear, beyond Paula Abdul’s expression of interest.
