Dancing with the Stars fifth-season celebrity champ Helio Castroneves was overheard backstage at the recently held ESPY Awards telling people that Kardashian would be competing as a seventh-season contestant on the ABC reality series, the New York Daily Newsreported Monday.
The 27-year-old socialite currently stars in E!'s Keeping up with the Kardashians reality series, which chronicles the entire Kardashian clan in their everyday life. E! renewedKeeping up with the Kardashians for a third season earlier this month.
An X-rated video featuring Kardashian with her then boyfriend Ray J. hit the Internet early last year, causing her to file an invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against porn production company Vivid Entertainment, which planned to release a DVD of the steamy footage. Kardashian eventually reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with Vivid and the video was taken off the market.
