Emma Slater even joked on ‘GMA’ when asked about the new mandate. She said, “It’s going to be bliss — I mean it’s going to be terrible. It’s (Dancing With The Stars) going to be so different because we can’t actually interact and even prep with each other, which is something completely different, but we’re doing everything we can to keep safe. There’s going to be a lot of FaceTiming.”
