She's continuing a (somewhat) family tradition. According to E! News, Amber Rose will be joining Dancing with the Stars for the upcoming 23rd season. There has been confirmation from multiple sources that the talk show host/model/actress/author/activist is the latest star to sign up for the reality competition and will compete for the Mirrorball Trophy.

ABC does not comment on casting decisions, whether they are true or not, but the full lineup will come in an announcement on Good Morning American on August 30.

It was previously reported that there are other celebs in talk for this season that run the gamut of the entertainment industry - and sometimes stretch the meaning of the word "star." They include reigning Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and former Wizards of Waverly Place and The Fosters star Jake T. Austin.

There were reports that Olympian Simone Biles would be joining the cast, but she has made it clear that she probably won't be able to do it thanks to her gymnastics obligations and the Kellogg's Tour.

"I would love to do Dancing with the Stars, but so far we have a three-month tour after this Olympics," Simone said at the P&G Family Home in Rio. "I'm not sure if I'll have time."

However, fans of the gymnast shouldn't give up hope. She thinks that the show will be a great way to wind down after winning four golds and a bronze in the Rio Olympics.

"I would really love to do it in the spring if that's possible," she added. Many other gymnasts have competed, including teammate Aly Raisman, Shawn Johnson, who won season eight, and fellow All-Around champion Nastia Liukin.

Dancing with the Stars season 23 premieres Monday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
