Baldwin Helped Phillips Land A Spot On Dancing
The actor thought a spot on the popular programme might benefit Phillips - so he contacted the TV bosses to sell them on the idea.
Hold On singer Chynna explains, "Billy said, 'Chynna, why aren't you on Dancing With the Stars...? And I was like, 'Alright, well if you can get me on it, I'll do it.' And he made a few phone calls, and the next thing you know, I was on it. and I was like, 'Ah, now I have to do it.'"
And Baldwin adds, "I just thought, from a career perspective... I mean (Chynna's band) Wilson Phillips was the number one female band in history, they passed Diana Ross (and The Supremes). And now, 20 years later, if you're trying to re-brand, re-franchise and make yourself relevant in the entertainment industry again, what better way to do it than in front of 20-some-odd-million people every week?"
