Is Giuliana Rancic Joining the Cast of 'Dancing with the Stars'?

Now that the official Dancing with the Stars cast announcement is only four days away, speculation is in high gear about who's making the cut for the top-rated reality competition's newest season.

One name that has popped up as a producers' pick is E! News' very own Giuliana Rancic, whom ABC would reportedly love to have on board.

Rancic certainly has the lithe figure for lifts and the style to pull off those glittery costumes, but what does the E! News and Fashion Police co-host have to say about this rumor?

"Yes, I've been approached for the new season," Rancic confirms.

But unfortunately, the 37-year-old entertainment anchor -- who has spent the past six months dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment -- says being on the show isn't in the cards for her this season.

"I've been a big fan of the show for years," she adds. "But sadly, my schedule at the moment would never allow for the grueling rehearsal commitment."

It's no surprise that Rancic can't fit the show into her busy schedule. She not only co-hosts the two E! shows, but she also works the red carpet at major premieres and awards shows, and stars on the Style Network's Giuliana & Bill.

But obviously she's not ruling it out completely: "Who knows, maybe Bill and I can be on the show together one day and go toe-to-toe for the trophy."
