HOLLYWOOD - Executives at ABC, the network that produces the reality dancing show Dancing With The Stars, have just announced that they have talked to Julian Assange of Wikilieaks and he has agreed to appear as a contestant on next year's edition.
Assange, the editor-in-chief and spokesperson for Wikileaks stressed to the show's executives that he has no dancing experience whatsoever.
Fairfax Atchafalaya, a spokesperson for DWTS replied that it did not matter since neither did Cloris "The Old Gal" Leachman, Kate "Graceless" Gosselin, nor Bristol "The Pistol" Palin.
Atchafalaya added that the new DWTS policy is to steer away from noted celebrities such as David Hasselhoff and Audrina Patridge and concentrate more on non-celebrities who are in the public eye and who can bring in a tremendous volume of viewers such as Kate Gosselin and Bristol Palin.
When asked if the fact that there is an arrest warrant for Assange which has been issued in Sweden will have any bearing on his participation Atchafalaya smiled and said that he certainly hoped so.
He then remarked that the new DWTS policy is to try and enlist contestants who may have been in prison or else who may be going to prison such as Martha Stewart, Paris Hilton, or Lindsay Lohan.
