ABC has announced that a year after her appearance on the show's February 2005 finale, Dancing with the Stars 2 participant Stacy Keibler will waltz her way back into primetime with nine guest starring appearances on two ABC television series.
The one-time Baltimore Ravens cheerleader and World Wrestling Entertainment wrestler will appear in seven episodes of What About Brian beginning Monday, February 5 at 10PM ET/PT. Keibler will play Stephanie, a fledging model/actress who moves into an apartment downstairs from Brian O'Hara, played by Barry Wilson. Flirtation ensues between the blonde bombshell and title character of the ABC drama series, causing problems between Brain and his current girlfriend.
Keibler will also appear on ABC's George Lopez sitcom, where she'll play the young, beautiful and not-so-smart fiancee of Vic, played by Emiliano Dmez. She is scheduled to appear in an episode airing Wednesday, January 31 at 8PM ET/PT, as well as a second episode on Wednesday, February 21 at 8PM ET/PT.
Although she had been deemed the competition's pre-season favorite and averaged the highest judges scores throughout the season, Keibler finished third on last winter's second Dancing with the Stars edition. After the show ended, Keibler signed a talent deal with Touchstone Television, the ABC sister company that co-produces What About Brian. Keibler was recently named one of People magazine's "Most Beautiful People," ranked fifth on Maxim magazine's 2006 "Hot 100" list and also received a Style Icon Award from Us Weekly magazine. She is scheduled to appear in the upcoming film The Comebacks, which is currently in post production.
