Cody Simpson is the latest star to be rumored to be in talks to join the 18th season of Dancing With The Stars.

Earlier this week, E! News reported that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes and former Full House star Candace Cameron-Bure had signed on to appear on the upcoming installment, and on Feb. 27, E! News reports that Cody, too, will be a part of the show.

Since Cody has so many young fans, his presence seems to make sense. After all, producers just booted Brooke Burke-Charvet for Erin Andrews because they wanted to cash in on Erin’s younger following.

If Cody does join, and NeNe joins as well, there could be a lot of Real Housewives stars in the audience. For the last several months, Cody has been dating GiGi Hadid, the daughter of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster. So, with all the Beverly Hills support, and the Atlanta support for NeNe, there’s sure to be a house full of housewives.

However, with no official word from the network until later this week, Cody's stint on the show remains unconfirmed.

The full cast will be announced on Tuesday, Mar. 4 on Good Morning America, and the series will premiere on Monday, Mar. 17 on ABC.
