The woman who is the architect behind the “Dancing With The Stars” cast and many more, Deena Katz, called into “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Friday to hear Ellen K‘s pitch for why she should be on “Dancing With The Stars.”

“I have heard all the way from Europe that Ellen K. wanted to be on the show,” said Deena. “I was on vacation last week and I was bombarded there.”

Ellen states her case, “Because I’m the biggest fan of the show that you will ever meet. I have pledged any money that I will make to help Ryan’s Foundation. Building radio stations for kids in hospitals and he is trying to blanket the country with them. So, that these kids who can’t leave the hospital can learn radio and broadcast to each other.”

“How do I say no now? Those poor little kids in the hospital. Who would you want to dance with?” Deena asks.

“I want to dance with Derek, everyone wants to dance with Derek, oh and Louis, I like them both! I didn’t know if Derek was back or not,” says Ellen.

“Derek will be back. Derek just took the one season off and Derek will be back and ready to go in the fall,” Deena says. “Regis Philbin has already put dibs on him if he ever comes on. Regis has said that if he ever comes on the show he wants to dance with Derek.”

Derek Hough took some time off and has been busy filming the dance movie “Cobu 3D” in New York and Toronto.

Ryan asked “What does your board look like right now?”

“My board is looking okay. I feel like I have all the time in the world and that I really don’t. So, I always think that I have about another week where I can pretend like I can do this casually and after the 4th of July is when I will start making offers and start figuring out exactly what I’m doing. We go back on the air September 19th,” Deena replies.

“That’s my birthday!” exclaims Ellen.

Maybe Ellen will be getting a “Dancing With the Stars” present for her birthday!
