Lance Bass rumored to be on Dancing with the Stars 7, may have a male partner

The cast of Dancing with the Stars 7 may include former ‘NSync member, and former Reichen Lehmkuhl boyfriend, Lance Bass.

The New York Daily News’ Rush and Molloy report–citing only an “an insider”– that “Lance Bass is locked and loaded for the next season.” He has most recently shown up on Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List on Bravo.

They throw in a rumor that Lance’s sexual orientation will somehow affect his dancing, or more specifically, who he dances with: “network execs are already fretting over whether or not to pair the openly gay pop star with a male or female dance partner,” they report.
