Since the method has been applied to Israel's version, Carrie Ann Inaba feels that America which is much more accepting towards same sex couples would have no problem.

After the Israel version of "Dancing with the Stars" paired two women in the competition, the U.S. version is inspired to do the same. The support comes from judge Carrie Ann Inaba as well as one of the most famous openly gay celebrities out there, Portia de Rossi.

When asked whether same-sex couple would materialize, Carrie told People, "I would love it. I fully support that and I think America is ready for that. Our country is much more accepting of same sex couples and it would be great for the show to reflect that."

The first celebrity that came to the bosses' mind is Ellen DeGeneres' wife. Ryan Seacrest talked to Portia on his radio show and said, "They're planning to feature a same-sex couple. You're at the top of the list." Portia was startled and replied, "Goodness, you really do break news." But she is taking it into consideration. "I'm not gonna pass, let me think about it," she told Ryan. "I used to be a ballet dancer, it's not completely a pass. You never know."

Carrie herself is pro the idea of having Portia although she has no knowledge whether it can come true or not. "I don't cast the show," she said, "but I think it would be great and I'd show up in my rainbow colors and fully support it."

Rather being gay is right or wrong is not for us to judge. But having a same sex couple on the show just wold hurt the shows ratings is my personal opinion. Its just not a normal thing for some of us to watch, and some lifelong viewers may not be accepting to this.

The show is going downhill. It is a Popularity show and now it wants to put gays on. Nothing against gays, but who wants to watch that????

I have watched every episode, but I wouldn't watch this. Looks like Idol will get its ratings back.

This will most definetly hurt the show. It has been the number one show to watch, but if this happens it won't be good.

It has been said that DWTS is watch by lots of conservatives (hence the Palin crap). I wonder how they'll react to this one!

This show is becoming more and more stupid. I thought it was bad in the US with Palin fiasco, but this Israeli version is just as silly.

Absolutely NOT! If DWTS goes through with this insanity many viewers will most definitely be turned off and the show's popularity will plumit! Why does Hollywood insist on craming the gay agenda down our throats. This is sick. You can count me over and out...

No Carrie Ann, America is not ready for a same-sex couple on DWTS. Those same Americans that prefer Bristol to Brandy will watch something else rather than watch Hollywood display its values - values that are contrary to their own.
