On the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars,” Audrina Patridge is leaving “The Hills” behind to get her groove on. While it’s still a big secret who she might be dancing with when the show kicks off September 20, when she stopped by to chat with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Tuesday morning (August 31), she couldn’t be convinced to comment on the rumors that she might be dancing with pro Tony Dovolani.
“I can’t tell you who my partner is,” she said, adding that if people think it might be Dovolani because he is tall, she made the case for one of the other dancers as well. “[Maksim Chmerkovskiy is] tall too. There’s some tall guys.” Regarding recent gossip that she’s dating Chmerkovskiy, she said, “Oh my God! It’s just the beginning, and look already!”
Patridge also weighed in on her competition, which includes David Hasselhoff and “Jersey Shore” star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. Who would she prefer as her partner? “The Hoff!”
Seacrest asked Patridge if she knew of fellow contestant Michael Bolton: “I do know who he is. … I’m not that young!
“I’m really excited. I met everybody last night for the first time, and [“Brady Bunch” star] Florence [Henderson] is so funny,” she added.
Partridge said she’s already started rehearsing, and after a photo shoot Tuesday, she will hit the floor again to prep for the big show. But she noted that she doesn’t have a lot of dancing experience. “I’ll go out with my girlfriends and dance,” she said. “When I was a little girl, my mom put me and my sister in ballet, jazz and tap.”
Fellow “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Bristol Palin spoke to “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, revealing that her partner is Mark Ballas. More partners are expected to be announced Wednesday on “GMA.”
