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."

Troy is a possibility (small possibility) for DWTS, but that housewife has to go. How can a person who can hardly manage proper English be on TV in the forum of such a great show as DWTS and to make matters worse request Maksim as her partner....Yeah okay Theresa..and then you woke up.Get with the program, the only show you could ever do is the one you are doing now that is raising money from all the crap you sell to keep yourself and your family afloat. Scrap that thought ASAP.

In response to whoever said Troy was a bad tipper and wanted everyting for free... I completely disagree. I happened to work in a restaurant that he visited frequently. He is always extremely friendly, unassuming and tips just fine as far as I've always heard. He has signed footballs for kids and always stops by to say hello if we see him at events. His wife and family are equally sweet. Just wanted to dispell that statement, because it is not true and Troy is honestly a class act.

It's "Dancing With the STARS". Not "Dancing With the Horse-Faced Douchebags".

I WOULD TAKE AIKMAN BEFORE THE SITUATION, BRISTOL PALIN, AUDRINA PATRIDGE, AND OCTOMOM. LAST SEASON THE HAD REAL STARS FOR THE 1st TIME IN MANY SEASONS. THIS WILL BE THE WORST SEASON EVER! WHAT AN EFFING JOKE. WHERE ARE THE STARS. I SEE NONE AND WILL FINALLY GIVE UP THE SHOW, "DANCING WITH THE UNTALENTED, TACKY, STUPID PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE SOMETHING BUT ARE JUST UNTALENTED IDIOTS" IT'S CALLED STARS, NOT CRAP!!!
