Spicer was reported to be in meetings with executives from various news networks like ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox News recently, and celebrity dancing show “Dancing with the Stars” reportedly tried to court the former press secretary.

He reportedly turned down the offer for the celebrity dancing competition, with a source close to him saying that he will be too busy in the fall to compete on the show.

“He isn’t a good dancer,” the source added.
