HOLLYWOOD - The host of Dancing With The Stars, Tom Bergeron has just informed the Hollywood media that he received a text message from Justin Bieber.
Bergeron said that Bieber begged him to please pull some strings so that he can join the cast of the upcoming season of DWTS.
Tom says he texted Justin back and told him that he could easily get him on the show, but he won't.
He then explained that as far as Dancing With The Stars and just about every other show in Tinsel Town is concerned, he (JB) is considered a persona non grata.
Justin texted back that he hasn't shot anyone.
Bergeron responded by saying true but then pointed out that he shot his mouth off and his mouth and his childish actions have shot his music career all to hell.
Tom then suggested that Justin do the right thing and check himself into The Henry & Betty Ford Rehab Clinic as fast as he possibly can.
Meanwhile, Derek "The Dancing Dude" Hough has hinted that he may start dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy's ex-girlfriend, the gorgeously well-endowed Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton.
