'DWTS' Rep Says Taryn Manning Never Turned Them Down, Reveals the Opposite Happened

Taryn Manning made a claim this week that she’s been asked to be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars and now the show’s rep is responding.

The 41-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress was promoting the gita robot and said in a video, “I’ve been asked to be on Dancing With the Stars many times. I have this weird phobia that [competing on the show] means you’re a has-been, and I never want to believe that’s the case.”

A rep for the show told Page Six that this is not true.

Taryn claims she’s been asked to join the cast ‘many times,’ however, we have never asked Taryn to be part of the show,” the rep said. “Her representation attempted to pitch her to us a while back and we kindly passed. So her claim that she was asked to join DWTS once, never mind many times, is completely false.”

The rep added, “Her thoughts that the contestants consist of ‘has-beens’ seems to be her own projection onto talent that we have asked to cast.”

Britney I know you’re strong af and have your own brain and thought process. To me you look happy and like you’re having a blast! Keep up the happy posts and your faith in Jesus Christ,” Taryn said.

She added, “How about instead of #freebritney we say #GodIsWatchingOverBritney. How about let’s give this wonderful woman the dignity she deserves and earned ✝️ Until you know the facts stop speculating and perpetuating the father of lies. We all know she’s under a type of control that’s unfair and things will be fixed. Have faith. Wish her well! Send good vibes of no fear! Please!”

“Response to media: First off, my apologies to Britney. I had no media agenda. Never was I seeking attention, nor press via Britney. The reason why I posted was because many fans of her contact me daily BEGGING me to do something. I used to not respond,” she wrote.

“Then, I started to ask for proof of these allegations they presented. Finally, I posted because it was eating away at me for months. What if there is something wrong? I wanted my post to be about the forgotten ones, hence the sentiment. I did not expect the amount of hate in my inbox though, and I don’t need it in my life, people can be cruel. I like Britney, we had a blast at that time, and I want her happy like any decent human would want for another. The Christian in me sees the Christian in her. You are so very loved ✝️,” she went on to write.
