Queen Latifah Thought She 'Was Too Big Of A Star' For 'DWTS,' Says Source! Are YOU Disappointed?

Queen Latifah was originally slated to be competing on season 13 of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ so what happened? HollywoodLife.com has the inside scoop!

We’re guessing Rob Kardashian, David Arquette, Elisabetta Canalis and the rest of the season 13 cast of Dancing with the Stars are all competing because they think it will help their images and their careers. However, an insider tells HollywoodLife.com Queen Latifah, 41, felt the exact opposite way about the popular ABC reality show.

“She thought it would be a career downturn,” an insider tells us about why the 41-year-old comedian didn’t end up signing on. “She didn’t believe she needs it, even though she is a fan of the show.”

Perhaps that’s true. As a performer, the Queen has won an astonishing two Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Golden Globe AND a Grammy Award, in addition to being nominated for an Emmy and an Academy Award, to name a few. She’s done just fine without having to strut her stuff on a prime time competition show.

That said, Queen Latifah is such a fun entertainer, we would have loved to have watched spin her way on the dance floor and if we were betting folks, probably would have put our money on her to win the Mirror Ball Trophy!

How do YOU feel about the new DWTS cast? Sound off below!
