The Young and the Restless Actress Won’t be Dancing With the Stars
Nia Peeples from CBS’ The Young and the Restless recently confirmed her non-participation on the new season of Dancing with the Stars. Contrary to reports that she was on this season’s list of celebrity competitors, she said that she won’t be appearing on the highly-watched series.
The 45-year-old singer-actress confirmed this through her official website.
“Guess what? It’s a [rumor]! But everyone here in town is hearing the same thing you’re hearing so don’t feel bad,” Nia Peeples said. However, she expressed delight in the thought that CBS had considered her for the reality series.
“The sad thing is I won’t be on [Dancing With the Stars] this season. The good thing is a rumor means they are seriously considering [putting me on the show],” she explained. “Also CBS called my agent in a panic when they heard, complaining that they were just starting to develop my character on [The Young and the Restless] and would be needing more of my time. The other good thing is that I can contractually do it next season.”
Earlier this year, Peeples was cast for the soap opera, The Young and the Restless, where she plays Karen Taylor, Nikkia Newman’s (Melody Thomas Scott) campaign manager. Peeples also appeared in various primetime series before joining the soap, and these shows include Walker, Texas Ranger, Andromeda, Barbershop and Early Edition.
Nia Peeple’s website reported that her latest air dates on The Young and the Restless include September 10, 17, 18, 24.
As Peeples won’t be appearing on Dancing with the Stars, another soap actress will be gracing the dance floor with his moves. All My Children’s Cameron Mathison was cast to appear on the reality dance competition with professional dancer Edyta Sliwinska.
This is not the first time that a daytime actor participated in the competition, as the first season of Dancing with the Stars featured General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco and daytime veteran John O’Hurley. The actors competed with each other and Monaco emerged victorious in the first season of Dancing with the Stars.
