HOLLYWOOD, CA - "Bachelorette" star Emily Maynard will be making her way back to ABC, according to reports, but this time she won't be looking for her soul mate.
Maynard will be dancing her way back to the television screen on the next season of "Dancing With The Stars," Radar Online reports .
The reality TV star reportedly signed the contract months ago in an effort to keep herself in the spotlight.
Maynard told reporters that she wanted to stay on TV in order to work her way up to her very own talk show.
"Dancing With The Stars" takes place in California, unlike "The Bachelorette" which went to North Carolina for the filming of Maynard's season.
The grandparents of Maynard's daughter reportedly worry that Maynard's budding television career isn't in the best interest of the little girl.
Radar Online reports that Maynard has been considering moving to California, worrying family that her daughter will be too far away from them.
Either way, there's no doubt that Maynard will be staying in the spotlight for at least a little while.
Access Hollywood reports that the 16th season of "Dancing With The Stars" begins March 18, 2013.
