The Dancing With The Stars Season 21 premiere aired on ABC, and one familiar face was noticeably absent from the dance floor – pro dancer Kym Johnson.
Kym Johnson performed on several seasons of Dancing With The Stars until she fell in love with her partner and began dating Shark Tank millionaire Robert Herjavec during Season 20.
When news first broke that she would not be dancing on this season of ABC’s show – rumors began erupting on the Internet that she might be pregnant with her boyfriend Robert’s baby and that was why she wasn’t dancing, and had opted to take a judge position in Australia instead.
But, there is also another rumor floating around that Kym Johnson might have been axed by ABC!
It is a bit suspicious that Kym was not asked back to the show as soon as she finally confirmed she and Robert were indeed in a relationship?
What do you guys think, did ABC drop Kym Johnson because of her relationship with Robert Herjavec?
Word among Kym Johnson’s former DWTS co-stars is that ABC was unimpressed that she really began dating her celeb partner Robert Herjavec, and because of their relationship she wasn’t invited back for the next season.
Obviously the network encourages flirting among the couples, it boosts ratings and creates some buzz and press for the show.
She started ballroom dancing at the age of 13, and placed second at the in 1998.
She retired from professional ballroom dancing in 2001, but didn't stop dancing at all.
A black bodycon dress however is a must-have, even if all you do is save it for when you’re feeling super body confident.
