La Toya Jackson has signed on as Access Hollywood’s guest correspondent covering the ninth season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” starting tonight, Wednesday, September 23, 2009.
“After having such a traumatic summer and respectfully declining an invitation to be a contestant on ABC’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ due to the circumstances, I am pleased to accept this invitation from Access Hollywood to be their special guest correspondent and I look forward to it,” said Jackson.
During the current season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” Jackson will be on hand to interview the contestants, capture behind-the-scenes moments and provide insight for the viewers from her perspective as an experienced performer.
“We are excited to be able to show America how funny, clever and engaging La Toya is,” says Access Hollywood Executive Producer Rob Silverstein. “She is the perfect fit for Access Hollywood and will bring a knowledgeable perspective to the show.”
La Toya Jackson is busy continuing Michael Jackson’s lifetime of work with charitable causes and organizations and hopes to continue to inspire his fans to give back.
Access Hollywood is distributed by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. Rob K. Silverstein is the executive producer.
