In an interview with Closer Weekly, Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran opens up about adding Dancing With the Stars to her busy schedule — and reveals she has a limited dance background.
Barbara, 68, knows she has her work cut out for her. “I signed up for hip-hop dancing on my 60th birthday,” she reveals of her limited dance background. “I went to three classes, showed the room how not to do it, and I never went back.”
Luckily, she’s secured backing from an experienced dancing partner, pro Keo Motsepe. “Keo’s the man,” she tells Closer, “the angel that believes in me!”
The motivated mogul promises to give it her all as she tangos her way from the boardroom to the ballroom. “I have a business to run, I’ve invested in 42 Shark Tank businesses, and I have an 11-year-old to raise. Yeah, I’ve got a lot on my plate,” she admits, “but everything waits if you get focused.”
“I’m shoving it all to the side and wishing it luck for the moment, except for my kids,” Barbara confides to Closer. “I need a shrink, but instead I’m going dancing with Keo!”
