Dancing with the Stars‘ effort to recruit more high-profile celebrities for its 13th season this fall hit a roadblock, when high-profile, A-lister and The Monkees star Davy Jones rejected the show’s offer to appear.
During a press conference yesterday for his upcoming December PBS special called “60s Pop Rock: My Music,” Davy Jones said, as part of one of his long, rambling answers, “If I want to go out there and compete … maybe there was a phone call a couple days ago to go on Dancing with the Stars. If they would have called me three years ago, I would have said yes. What am I dancing against, a boxer and a baseball player? Do you know what I mean? I’m a song and dance man, you know.”
I don’t know what that means, really, but I do know that he’s a hilarious character (“I’ve got two hands. I’m a laborer. I fix my own roof.”), prompting me to suggest he should get his own show, and a friend to start soliciting Davy Jones reality show names like this.
