'DWTS' Star Chelsie Hightower

At Least REEBOK

Still Loves Me

EXCLUSIVE

0301_chelsea_hightower_article_rebok"Dancing with the Stars" doesn't want Chelsie Hightower this season, but Reebok (and Reebok's money) sure does ... the shoe company's sticking by the dancing pro, despite the fact she was axed from season 16.

Chelsie inked a major endorsement deal with Reebok earlier this year to be the face of its new dancewear line (which launched in Feb). A great choice for Reebok, considering CH's been a staple on "DWTS" since 2009.

TMZ broke the story ... Chelsie was NOT asked to return to ABC's hit show this year -- begging the question, WHAT WILL REEBOK DO NOW????

A rep from Reebok tells TMZ ... "While we believe Chelsie was the perfect choice for the upcoming season [of 'DWTS'], our relationship with her will not change moving forward and we look forward to continuing to work with her.”

Chelsie tells TMZ, "I am just thrilled to be the face of Reebok's new dancewear line ... the line is FABULOUS!"

Who needs sequins and spray tans when you got sneakers -- and $$$?

First of all she's a hooker and second Reebok's weak. Hence, they picked her as spokesho. Adidas crushes Reebok.

I wouldn't take a pair of Reebok's if they were free

Once the contract is up, they'll toss her like an old pair of sneakers.

Reebok doesn't need to do anything. DWTS is tanking, so the smart pros are branching out. She was FIRED season 13 and UNFIRED season 14. They use 11-12 pros per season. They have about twice that total, so some are "axed" (sit out) for a season (not year). Simple math. Another non-breaking non-story from the goons at TMZ.
