Is she or isn't she? Sources connected to "DWTS" say Queen Latifah will join season 13, but her rep denies the reports.

Hate to break the news to you, "Dancing With the Stars" fans, but all of the cheering over reports that rapper/actress Queen Latifah may join season 13 of the competition may have been for naught.

Her rep told our pals at Us Weekly over the weekend that "Queen Latifah will not appear on 'Dancing With the Stars.' "

Sources connected to the ballroom bash told TMZ on Friday that the performer was going to compete in the upcoming season, but an insider told Us Weekly this weekend that "there were never any talks" between the Queen and the show.

As to who will compete in season 13, Rob Kardashian and "Jersey Shore's" Snooki have yet to deny their rumored participation. Let's keep our fingers crossed that Queen Latfiah's rep's statement is just to keep the show's fans guessing at who'll be among the celebs to go dancing. The cast will be revealed on ABC during "Bachelor Pad" on Aug. 29.

Speaking of the cast reveal, join me and my fellow "Dancing With the Stars" writer Ree Hines for a chat about the celebs who will be competing on Aug. 30 at 12:30 p.m. ET. Sign up for a reminder!
