Oops—looks like Dancing With the Stars will remain star-less yet again.

Yesterday, reports surfaced that Queen Latifah would be competing on the upcoming season of ABC reality show. But today, a rep for the star told US Weekly that the rumors are untrue. Another insider said that "there were never any talks" between the star and ABC about DWTS, though Latifah "likes the show."


Color us relieved. Reports say that Jersey Shore "smush-smush" advocate Snooki, forgotten-family-member Rob Kardashian and Saved By the Bell alum Tiffani Thiessen are in talks to join the show this season. No offense to them—well, maybe a little—but are they really company fit for a Queen? We say no.
