‘Dancing with the Stars’ 2011: Queen Latifah’s rep denies cast rumor

Sad news.

As much fun as it would be to see Queen Latifah hit up the ballroom on this season of “Dancing with the Stars,” it doesn’t appear as though this is going to end up happening, after all.

In a statement (per Us Weekly), the rapper-turned-actor’s representative claims that there were “never any talks” to even bring Latifah on board the show for the fall 2011 season. This marks the third time that we have heard a denial when it comes to casting speculation in the past couple of weeks — spokespeople for both “Jersey Shore” star Snooki and actress Tiffani Thiessen have also claimed speculation surrounding their casting for the show is completely fabricated.

While this may throw some water on our hope of seeing Latifah rock out on the show, don’t rule it out completely just yet — ABC producers could swoop in for a last-ditch effort, and it is theoretically possible that many of these representatives are denying rumors simply to keep things a secret until the cast announcement actually occurs during “Bachelor Pad” on August 29.

Would you be sad if Latifah is not involved?
