June Shannon, aka Mama June on TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” recently dropped 115 pounds. Now, will she show off her new body on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars?”

That’s the report from New York Daily News, which lists June as one of the contenders being targeted for the upcoming season of the show. The article cites an insider who says that not only June is being courted, but so are the likes of Kourtney Kardashian, former “Bachelorette” Emily Maynard and boxer Victor Ortiz.

Unfortunately, TLC may have scrapped one of those names already. Executives told The Huffington Post that June’s casting is just an “untrue rumor.” However, surprises have been known to happen.

The new cast of “Dancing With the Stars” will officially be unveiled on Tuesday, Feb. 26 on “Good Morning America.”
