NEW YORK – Dancer Witney Carson found out this week that her partner for Season 22 of “Dancing With the Stars” is Super Bowl Champ Von Miller.
“I’ve never had an athlete before and they do really well on the show because athletes are able to kind of focus and they have really great work ethic,” Carson told FOX411. “They know how to perform and that’s kind of unteachable.”
But Vonn isn’t the only man on Carson’s mind — she also has her brand new husband to deal with, Carson McCallister, who she married on New Year’s Day. So will it be weird doing sexy dances now that she’s hitched?
“My husband is really good about it. He’s been supportive through everything,” Carson said. “We actually dated in high school so he’s kind of familiar with how things go, you know, it’s just a job. It’s just work. It’s just like acting. You have to play the part. So if that requires some steamy moves then… as long as I don’t kiss him then we’re good!”
Carson says she’s also looking forward to hanging out with contestant Jodie Sweetin. “I’m a huge fan of ‘Full House’. I love ‘Full House’ so I’m really excited to see Jodie do her thing.”
And Fox News’ own Geraldo Rivera?
“I think he’s going to do great. He’s got such a big personality,” she said. “I can already tell… he seems like just such a nice guy and I’m really excited to see how he does.”
“Dancing with the Stars” starts Season 22 on March 21.
