On Monday, On-Air On-Soaps and other mainstream and soap outlets originally posted an online sourced report that had General Hospital fan favorite Emma Samms (Holly) joining notables such as Olympians Laura Hernandez and Ryan Lochte, Taxi’s Marilu Henner, former Texas governor Rick Perry, as well as 80′s rap star Vanilla Ice as one of the celebrity contestants on season 23 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
Although everyone was unconfirmed until the official announcement on Tuesday morning on Good Morning America, suddenly last evening there were mixed reports that Samms was actually not in the cast. Then when the announcement came early AM New York City time, Samms was not revealed to be a part of the ballroom dance competition.
While no one seems to have any idea as to how this now “rumor” got started, Samms herself took to her Twitter account to qualify it and say to her followers: “So sorry to disappoint re
#DWTS Not entirely sure how that rumour started! It wouldn’t have worked anyway, but perhaps next time?”
Many GH and Emma’s longtime fans took to Twitter this morning very disappointed that this was indeed false. Meaning for another season no current or former soap opera star that will be representing the genre.
So, what do you think of Emma’s tweet and clarification? Do you wish she has been hitting the dance floor? Would you like to see her compete in a future season of DWTS? Comment below!
