LaToya Jackson is back in the news. She made headlines this summer when she declared her brother Michael had been murdered; now, she's looking to dance her way into prime time. Jackson says she's been invited to compete on season nine of "Dancing With The Stars," following in the illustrious shoeprints of Shawn Johnson, Brooke Burke, and Kristi Yamaguchi... not to mention such luminaries as Kim Kardashian, Marie Osmond, and Steve-O. "She has been invited and she loves the show!" says her publicist, adding that no deal has been made. All ABC will say is that the season nine DWTS cast will be unveiled on Good Morning America next Monday, August 17.
How about it, DWTS fans - do you want to see LaToya strutting her stuff next season? And who else should get a shot at dancing his or her way to the title?
