Troy Aikman

I'm Doing

'Dancing with the Stars'

7/29/2010 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Following in the rhinestone capezios of his former Dallas Cowboys teammate Emmitt Smith -- legendary QB Troy Aikman told us last night that he's officially on board for the next season of "Dancing with the Stars."

Troy was leaving Red O restaurant in L.A. when he broke the news.

It's pretty unusual for a celeb to spill the beans before ABC makes its official announcement ... so if he was being serious, there might be some hell to pay down the line.

Calls to ABC have not yet been returned.

UPDATE: Apparently, Troy was kidding ... and posted the following message on his Twitter page -- "I will not be on DWTS ... interferes with American Idol auditions."

So he's this year's patsy, huh? He'll hang around for 5 weeks, just because he's Troy. After that, the real dancers will take center stage.

So are Teresa Guidice from Real Housewives and Denise Richards judging by their tweets. Suspiciously, Denise has since erased her tweets about her trainer coming over to get her in shape for DWTS, and Teresa says she is still deciding, but asking if people will vote for her and asking who she should ask to be paired with.

i was never a cowboys fan, was always a huge 49ers fan. so i'd much rather see steve young or joe montana dancing than this tool. but then again, i've never seen DWTS not even once so i prob wouldn't even watch then!

Well, he'll probably make more females tune in and draw higher ratings than his boy, "Emmitt Smiff".....

In response to 2tellthetruth, why would he need to get involved with a Kardashian?? He's white!! Unless you're talking about Kourtney. The ones with the big booties only mess with da bruthas....
