Troy Aikman says he was joking when he told TMZ that he would appear on Dancing with the Stars "next year." After his "joke" became news, Aikman tweeted that he would, in fact, not be on DWTS, because it "interferes with American Idol auditions."
It seemed unrealistic and unlikely that Aikman would have appeared on the reality show in September since he is busy as a football analyst with Fox. Aikman's former teammates Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith have previously appeared on DWTS, with Smith winning in 2006.
