Davy Jones Turned Down ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Davy JonesAs the memories and tributes start to pour in for Davy Jones following news of his death earlier today, so do some interesting stories about the former Monkee — like the one about him turning down the chance to be on Dancing with the Stars just last year.

According to his wife, professional dancer Jessica Pacheco, Jones would’ve won. “The only problem we would have is me letting him lead,” she said.

Jones was very much interested in dancing, just not publicly, thus explaining why we again didn’t see his name on the recently announced list of celebrities participating in the upcoming 14th season of the show. And very sadly, we will never get to see just how good of a dancer he was — or how happy it made him.
