Rob Kardashian may be gearing up for a comeback!
The elusive Kardashian is allegedly in talks of returning to Dancing With the Stars as a way to not only return to the spotlight, but also combat his troublesome weight gain in recent years.

A source tells Radar Online the 28-year-old is considering a "one-night-only" appearance on the show.
“Rob’s been given an open invitation to visit the show, and producers even dangled the prospect of serious hang time with Rumer Willis and Charlotte McKinney,” the source explains. (It's unsure if the deal is still on the table for next season, considering the Season 20 finale airs tonight.)

The former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star — who finished in second place when he competed on the show’s 13th season in 2011 — “hasn’t ruled it out” because “the happiest anyone ever saw this kid was when he was dancing every day.”
The source alleges he’s holding out for a $50,000 payday for the gig, but that’s not the only thing stopping him right now.

“Rob will only go on the show if he drops some weight first,” the source claims.
“He’s not a tall guy so when he puts on 10 pounds it looks like 20. He’s back on the diet and has already lost several pounds.”
