They’re competitors on Dancing With the Stars, but Kirstie Alley is rooting for pro dancer Cheryl Burke to be the next Bachelorette!
“If Cheryl Burke isn't the Bachelorette this season, I'm never watching again!!” Kirstie tweeted on Nov. 13.
Just the night before, Cheryl told Life & Style, “I did meet with [The Bachelorette] execs; we'll see what happens in the future....If they offer it to me, I’d love to do it. Definitely. I know it sounds crazy.”
The 28-year-old has been on DWTS for 14 seasons – “I’ve been on this show for almost a decade!” she marvels. But now she wants to focus on her personal life.
“I make wrong choices; I dated a couple of guys over the summer, and they turned out bad,” she continues. “If someone were to make the choice for me.… hopefully they’d be one special person in the group.”
Another DWTS contestant, Melissa Rycroft – a Bachelor star herself – also thinks the dancing queen is the perfect candidate.
“[Cheryl] would be phenomenal in this role,” Melissa gushes. “Those boys will have to go through a very intensive interview process!"
