Aikman Tweets a Retraction of His ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Claim

Jul 30, 2010  •  Post A Comment

After telling a TMZ reporter he was going to appear on ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars" in the upcoming season, former NFL quarterback Troy Aikman now says he was just kidding, reports the New York Daily News.

Via his Twitter account, Aikman said, "I will not be on ‘DWTS’ … interferes with ‘American Idol’ auditions."

Aikman is also a Fox NFL analyst. A representative for Fox reported that Aikman was just joking around when he made the original claim.

Aikman’s Dallas Cowboys teammate Emmitt Smith won “Dancing With the Stars” in the show’s third season.


  1. iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  3. You are such an amazing writer. Wishing you a strength and peace that surpasses all understanding as you continue to walk the high road … you are amazing, and I honor you for being YOU! You represent grace and dignity … with a smile that melts anyone blessed to be on the receiving end of it. God Bless you Always, Carrie!!!!
