Sean Spicer may have fallen from grace, but he’s landed among the stars.

Since leaving the White House podium, Spicer has struggled to land a gig that sticks. He was ridiculed when he made light of lying to the American people during the Emmys, didn’t land the coveted Fox News role he reportedly wanted, wrote a book that clearly wasn’t fact-checked and gave an inebriated interview during the State of the Union this year.

But the former White House press secretary has found an active pursuit: he’s set to be a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” according to “Good Morning America.” Spicer will play the role of the “star” in the show that pairs B-list (at best) celebrities with professional dancers.

Other celebrities on this season, set to premiere Sept. 26, include Christie Brinkley, Ally Brooke, James Van Der Beek, Ray Lewis, Kate Flannery, Kel Mitchell, Lamar Odom, Karamo Brown, Hannah Brown and Lauren Alaina.

Spicer also has a full-time gig as a reporter for Extra TV, which primarily involves asking people like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about their favorite Oscar nominees. 

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
