Dwts Pro Thinks Abdul Should Only Be A Contestant
One of the professional dancers who appears on ABC's Dancing With the Stars has weighed in on ABC Entertainment chief Stephen McPherson's indirect invitation to Paula Abdul to join the show. "I think we're good with our judges," Mark Ballas, who was winning competitor Shawn Johnson's partner last season, told E! News. He also indicated that Abdul ought not to be considered for a role on the show as another professional. "She can't be a professional because she's not a ballroom or a Latin dancer," he said. However, he added, "I think she should be on the show as a competitor" -- that is, another contestant, facing the kind of judging panel she just left.
