“It would have been very challenging,” he said. “But I’m proud of her work and charity around the world, Operation Smile, a number of other organizations — humanitarian efforts that she’s involved in and is continuing to be involved in.”
AccessHollywood.com had previously confirmed that producers for “Dancing With the Stars” had approach Cindy about joining the cast for the show’s upcoming season last week.
