We have Senator John McCain to thank for keeping his wife Cindy off the eighth season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
The former GOP candidate for president was a guest on Larry King Live Thursday night, and he told the talk show host that although they talked about it, Cindy McCain will not be a contestant on the ballroom dance-centered series.
“Well, we discussed it. But we decided it just was not a good idea,” says McCain, who pointed out that his beer heiress wife has undergone knee replacement surgery.
“It would have been very challenging. But I’m proud of her work and charity around the world, Operation Smile, a number of other organizations — humanitarian efforts that she’s involved in and is continuing to be involved in.”
