“Dancing With The Stars” Contestant Cody Rigsby And His Partner Cheryl Burke Have Tested Positive For COVID
Ever since Hollywood returned to work, there’s been no end to the stories about how everyone is taking safety precautions very seriously and noses have been swabbed a minimum of 10 times a day and everyone is vaccinated and all that. So when Dancing With The Stars returned for their 30th season (and their first with a live audience since pre-COVID times), I would have just naturally assumed that the biggest health risk onset would be accidental lung poisoning from inhaling a mouthful of JoJo Siwa’s glue-soaked hair glitter. But nope, COVID is still very much a threat, which is something that Season 30 contestant Cody Rigsby found out the hard way. Cody tested positive for the virus shortly after his partner Cheryl Burke tested positive.
The entire cast of who will shimmy for attention and a check on the new season of Dancing with the Stars was announced this morning. We already heard that YouTuber JoJo Siwa joined the cast and will be part of the U.S. version’s first same-sex pair. Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Sunisa “Suni” Lee was also named as a contestant, as well as world-renowned collegiate rower Olivia Jade. And today, we learned that also part of the cast is Sporty Spice herself, Melanie Chisholm, from the Spice Girls. Pack it up losers! It’s time to spice up your goddamn lives!
