Is Sean Spicer’s next move on ‘Dancing with the Stars?’

TV fans are feeling tempted by the prospect of Sean Spicer on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Politico reports that the TV show is courting the former White House press secretary for its upcoming season.

Spicer, who resigned last week following Anthony Scaramucci’s assignment as White House communications director, and has been replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has not announced his next career move.

(Though we’ll miss Melissa McCarthy’s stupendous portrayal of him on “Saturday Night Live,” social media observers already have cast Mario Cantone of “Sex and the City” fame to play Scaramucci — aka “The Mooch” — on “SNL.”)

If Spicer does accept the rumored “Dancing” offer, his appearance on the show would not be unprecedented.

Rick Perry, energy secretary and former governor of Texas, competed last fall, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was on in 2009, and President Donald Trump’s ex-wife Marla Maples joined Season 22 last spring.

Upcoming season 25 premieres Sept. 18.

ABC declined to comment on casting rumors.


Angelina Jolie is on the mend.

In a Vanity Fair spread (written by Evgenia Peretz, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Jessica Diehl) the 42-year-old actress, filmmaker, activist and mother talks about her life, post-divorce from Brad Pitt.

She rejected the notion that the couple’s jet-setting broke the marriage, and said she didn’t want her kids (Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9) to be worried about her, like she was about her mom: “I think it’s very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them.”

She recently moved to a six-bedroom, 10-bathroom, 11,000-square-foot home once owned by Cecil B. DeMille, and, after a long estrangement, she’s been back in touch with her father, Jon Voight.

Jolie mentioned that she has successfully done acupuncture to treat Bell’s palsy, a condition that causes one side of the face to droop as a result nerve damage.

Her current project is an adaptation of “First They Killed My Father,” her friend Loung Ung’s 2000 memoir of the Khmer Rouge genocide, which was filmed in Cambodia (where Maddox was born).
