Sherri Shepherd read the headlines describing him as a risky choice and “notorious cokehead.” She wanted to know what he thinks about the reaction to his casting.
Andy Dick said that it is true that he has a checkered past, but “now I’m doing great.”
He was approached in the past to be on the show, but he passed because he was not in a good place in his life. In December 2011, Dick performed tap dancing on The View, which may have helped him get the gig.

Sharna Burgess, Andy’s professional dance partner on the show, is helping to choreograph their routines. She said that Andy has had to overcome his fears as he prepared to hit the dance floor.
Andy suggested that Dorothy Hamill is a ringer, “because she basically danced on ice and won gold medals.”
