Sean Spicer - sadly - says 'no' to 'Dancing With the Stars'

Most eyes are now on ex-White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci and the man who quit over his arrival - former press secretary Sean Spicer.

Unfortunately (or fortunately? Honestly, I don't even know anymore), Spicer turned the offer down, saying he's going to have an "overwhelming number of commitments" this fall and he won't have time for reality TV. TMZ's source also added that Spicer is not a very good dancer, which is something we all probably could have assumed. Spicer was spotted near and at various television network offices in NY in July.

Spicer is said to have signed with Barnett as well as Michael O'Connor of Williams & Connolly after taking a round of meetings with news networks like NBC, CBS, and Fox News.

Twitter reacted with disappointment to the news that Spicer would not be appearing on Dancing With The Stars after all.

Last we heard, the ABC network had offered Spicer a chance to take part in the 25 season of its highly-rated show Dancing With The Stars.

Barnett was not able to be reached by Page Six and Spicer did not comment, according to the publication. The George Foster Peabody Awards program is named after American businessman and philanthropist George Peabody and honors the most powerful stories in TV, radio, and online media, according to the official website.

SNL's last season was its most-watched season in 23 years, and some of the most appreciated episodes were those where McCarthy mimicked Spicer and the way he would go into bursts of anger toward reporters.
