‘Dancing with the Stars’ 2011: is George Clooney ex Elisabetta Canalis in cast?

Could this happen?

There’s a rather fascinating new rumor out there when it comes to “Dancing with the Stars” season 13, and this time it involves someone who was perceived to be Hollywood royalty just a matter of months ago.

According to new reports, Italian model / actress Elisabetta Canalis — best known for her recent relationship to notorious bachelor George Clooney — will be one of the new celebrities dancing to win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy. This same report claims that “Jersey Shore” star Snooki and Queen Latifah have not signed on to do the show, despite a number of reports out in the press claiming otherwise.

Strangely, there is one other interesting connection between “Dancing” and Clooney that does not even include Canalis — the actor’s rumored new girlfriend in Stacy Keibler was on the second season of the show, and many to this day believe that she was robbed of a top-two finish.

Although she may not be particularly well-known in the United States outside of her relationship with Clooney, do you think Elisabetta is a good fit for the show? Other rumored names at the moment for the season include Chynna Phillips, Rob Kardashian, and Tiffani Thiessen.
