The newfound feud between Taryn Manning and Dancing With the Stars continues, as Manning now says that DWTS is lying about never asking her to be on the show.
Taryn Manning, the actress from shows like Orange is the New Black, originally said that Dancing With the Stars had approached her to come on the show multiple times but she had always turned them down.
“I’ve been asked to be on Dancing With the Stars many times,” she reportedly said in a recent video, according to Page Six. “I have this weird phobia that [competing on the show] means you’re a has-been, and I never want to believe that’s the case.”
Then, a spokesperson from DWTS reached out to Page Six to say that that was not the case.
“Taryn claims she’s been asked to join the cast ‘many times,’ however, we have never asked Taryn to be part of the show,” the representative told the outlet, adding that the claims Manning had been asked to join the cast multiple times were “completely false.”Manning Says ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Lied About Not Asking Her to be on the Show View this post on Instagram

After the stories about her not being asked to be on the show came out, Manning took to her Instagram stories to refute those claims and posted emails that she says proves she was asked to be on the show.
“My office is casting [DWTS],” one email reads. “We would be thrilled to have Taryn Manning join the cast.” Another email talks of having a meeting about the possibility of Manning being on the show.
However, Page Six reported that a DWTS insider said that the person who sent the email “has never worked for or on behalf of the show in any capacity.” And “there was never an offer on the table.”
During the original comments about the show, Manning added that she believed being on the show means that a celebrity is a “has-been.”Manning Slammed the Show for Casting Choices View this post on Instagram

In the same Instagram stories, the actress took the time to criticize the show for casting choices they’ve made over the years, including casting Tiger King star Carole Baskin in 2020.
“So… side note. Due to the fact that you cast ‘The Tiger Lady’ on your program and me being an animal rights advocate and staunch vegan, I do not agree with any type of known endangered animal abuser in the entertainment circuit,” Manning said. She later said she does like the show and is proud of the celebrities who do go on it.
“I don’t support any type of animal abuse at all and I never will,” Manning added. “I’m a staunch vegan and it’s not because of health. It’s because I don’t torture animals period. I don’t like that they have Carole Baskin on.”
Other celebrities on the show right now include Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, Catfish host Nev Schulman, Jessie star Skai Jackson and Olympic Figure Skater Johnny Weir.
Dancing With the Stars airs at 8 p.m./7 p.m. central on ABC on Monday nights.

In a since-deleted Tweet, former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel slammed Tyra Banks.
Recently, Banks, who is the new host of Dancing With The Stars, allegedly said that she did not want any Real Housewives to be on the show in the future. In response, Frankel fired back at her on Twitter on October 22. Frankel’s tweet read, “Good to know @tyrabanks has clumped me in her no more housewives mandate on @DancingABC. Also good to know-their casting director Deena, who I ❤️ has asked me to be on that show multiple x in the last decade. I’m also no longer a housewife, but nobody is bigger than the game Tyra.”View this post on Instagram

According to Page Six, multiple Real Housewives stars including Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne have starred on the show before. However, with Banks’ new gig, it doesn’t seem like that will be happening again any time soon. According to OK!, Banks is “not a fan” of The Housewives, and a source told the publication that, “the real reason she doesn’t want them on her show is that Bethenny Frankel, NeNe Leakes and Teresa Giudice do not make headlines anymore.”
Banks was the host of the reality show America’s Next Top Model, which ran for 24 seasons.Bethenny Frankel Quickly Clarified Her Comments
I deleted that last post Bc I really like & have a great relationship with Deena Katz from #DWTS. If @tyrabanks wants to come on my podcast, she is welcome anytime as she has built a successful brand on her own in her own way. #justbwithbethenny

After Frankel wrote the tweet to Banks, she promptly deleted it and clarified her comment. Frankel tweeted, “I deleted that last post Bc I really like & have a great relationship with Deena Katz from #DWTS. If @tyrabanks wants to come on my podcast, she is welcome anytime as she has built a successful brand on her own in her own way. #justbwithbethenny.” Recently, Frankel launched her own podcast, called Just B. She has already scored guests like Paris Hilton and Mark Cuban to make appearances.
After Frankel blasted Banks, some fans accused her of being racist. One fan wrote to Frankel, “It feels racist that your attacking a black woman in a position of power for something someone else said she said.” In response, Frankel tweeted again, writing, “Am I a Karen or a racist? I forgot what character assassination label you give me on Thursdays. Send me the schedule.”Tyra Banks Has Responded to the Claims View this post on Instagram

On October 22, Banks’ publicist told Page Six that the claims that Banks did not want any more Real Housewives on Dancing With The Stars weren’t true. “This is 100 percent untrue,” Banks’ publicist, Elana Rose of the Rose Group, told Page Six. “She’s a huge fan of the ‘Housewives’ and everyone knows Tyra is a businesswoman first. As a businesswoman, why would she say anything against the ‘Housewives’? She has nothing to do with casting.”
Rose continued, telling Page Six, “She loves Andy [Cohen], she’s been on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ several times. She’s a huge fan of the Clubhouse.”
Also, not to mention, Eva Marcille, who was the winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 3, appeared in the last few seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
