Laila Ali: My Wedding Guests Expect a Show
The Dancing finalist and her fiancé are under pressure to perform at their nuptials
Dancing with the Stars’ Laila Ali may be ready to give dancing a rest, but she says she might have to pull off one more big performance – at her wedding.
The DWTS third-place finalist said during an appearance with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Wednesday’s The View that she and her fiancé, former NFL star Curtis Conway, are expected to perform a dance at their summer wedding.
“We have to go out there because, you know, our guests are going to be expecting a show. They paid to get in, yes,” Ali, 29, said when asked by co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck whether she planned on doing a “super-sophisticated dance” at her wedding.
“So Curtis is going to be in a little bit of a pressure zone?” asked Hasselbeck.
“Yeah, yeah. But he can handle it, though,” Ali said.
One thing Ali has made clear that she won’t handle is more dance competition. When asked by Rosie O’Donnell whether she’d ever go back for a dance-off with the top DWTS finalists, Ali shook her head and said, “They would have to pay me so much more money.”
