Nina Dobrev Asked To Do ‘DWTS’ & Partner With Ex Derek Hough

While we are super sad to see Nina Dobrev leave 'The Vampire Diaries,' we're excited to see what she does next with her career. Now that she has some time, the brunette beauty is thinking about shaking things up on 'DWTS' this fall! Nina Dobrev, 26, is still on good terms with her ex, Derek Hough, 29, and is besties with his sister, Julianne Hough, 26 - who both have gigs on Dancing With The Stars. So what does that mean? You guessed it! Because of her newly open schedule post-TVD, Derek and Julianne are convincing Nina to compete on the show this fall!

Nina Dobrev On ‘Dancing With The Stars’: Actress Asked To Compete With Ex Derek Hough

Props to Nina and Derek for being able to maintain a friendship after breaking up. After reportedly dating for six months in 2013, the couple are ready to get back together — but only on the dance floor. And that’s fine by us!

“Nina has been asked by both Julianne and Derek to join the show,” a source tells EXCLUSIVELY. “And if she does it next season Derek will be her partner. And Nina is really considering it. If she doesn’t have a job by the fall she will do it.”

Should we feel bad that we hope Nina doesn’t have a job come autumn? Because we would seriously love to see her take a stab at the samba. We’re hoping she eventually says yes! A little nudge from gal pal Julianne can’t hurt either, right?

Nina: Ready To Go R-Rated For Exciting New Role

As previously reported, Nina has some other plans for her career besides a stint on DWTS. 

“She knows that she might have to show some skin to get to the next level so if the part is right she will go topless in a heartbeat,” our source says. “She has already accepted the fact that it might be needed to go bare for her next move to get a real juicy role from another actress.”

Ooh, we’re excited already!

“To make a mark Nina wants to get into movies but she is also seeing the power that TV has with shows like True Detective,” the source added. “And she wants to do something serious with a big cast to show that she can handle doing more than just The Vampire Diaries.”

Tell us HollywoodLifers — what do YOU think of all the career changes up ahead for Nina?
