Sources told Page Six that Madix is expected to compete in the ballroom during DWTS Season 32, with an insider reportedly saying, “ABC is in late stage conversations with [Madix] to be a contestant to join ‘DWTS’ this fall.”
Madix has also reportedly “received all of the approvals and sign-offs from NBC Universal,” which is the parent company of Bravo, where Vanderpump Rules airs. The show has been in the news recently due to Madix’s split from co-star Tom Sandoval after he allegedly cheated on her with their co-star Raquel Leviss.
In addition to appearing on the reality show as a bartender, Madix is also an actress. It was recently reported that she’ll be starring in an upcoming Lifetime movie called Buying Back My Daughter.

The Season 32 Cast Has Yet to Be Announced
Don’t expect to see an official announcement about Madix competing on Dancing with the Stars any time soon. None of the Season 32 celebrities have been announced yet. The cast usually isn’t revealed until much closer to the premiere.
However, we do know that three of last season’s judges will be back for the new season — Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli. Longtime judge Len Goodman announced that he was leaving the show last season.
Additionally, former co-host Tyra Banks will not be returning to the ballroom. Instead, former pro dancer Julianne Hough will be co-hosting the show with Alfonso Ribeiro. The new season is expected to premiere on Disney+ this fall.
