Courtney Robertson may be remaining part of ABC's Monday night programming even though The Bachelor's season finale aired this week.

The Bachelor bachelorette -- who got engaged to Bachelor Ben Flajnik during Monday night's broadcast of the ABC reality dating show's sixteenth-season finale -- may be joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars' upcoming season as a last-minute addition, People reported Wednesday.

Robertson is "in talks with Dancing with the Stars producers" even though the ballroom dancing competition's fourteenth season will take over The Bachelor's timeslot and premiere live Monday, March 19 at 8PM ET/PT -- giving her only a few days to rehearse, according to People.

ABC declined to comment on whether Robertson may be appearing on Dancing with the Stars when contacted by People.

"We do not comment on casting rumors. You'll have to tune in Monday and see," a show publicist said.

Robertson would not be the first former The Bachelor bachelorette to compete on Dancing with the Stars on short notice.

In 2009, Melissa Rycroft -- who got engaged to thirteenth-season The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick during his final Rose Ceremony but was later dumped on-air in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney --  joined Dancing with the Stars' eighth season as a last-minute injury replacement for Nancy O'Dell.

A former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, Rycroft made it all the way to Dancing with the Stars' eighth-season finale, where she finished in third place behind Gilles Marini and winner Shawn Johnson.
