Naked Dancing With the Stars: Chad Ochocinco Can Dream, Can't He?

We all know the wardrobe on Dancing With the Stars can get pretty revealing.

But Chad Ochocinco wants to take things to a whole other level.

Forget going shirtless à la Gilles Marini and Derek Hough...

"He wants to do a full-on see-through outfit," says Cheryl Burke, the football star's DWTS partner. "He'd have to wear a cup, at least—a rhinestone one."

Or not.

"I may want that to hang out, too," Ochocinco says.

We certainly wouldn't put it past him to go as risqué as censors will let him.

Burke laughs, "He's a character. You never know what you're going to get. It's like going to get ice cream. There are so many flavors."

In one of the rare moments of seriousness during our chat, Ochocinco says he has a newfound respect for ballroom dancing. "I thought it would be easy," he admits. "Watching it on TV, I thought, How hard could it be?" But now I know the time and the work it takes to perfect this craft is extremely hard."

His Cincinnati Bengals teammates are supporting him, as is his coach. "His thing is how much this will help me on the field," Ochocinco explains. "I'm going to be a lot more limber and, of course, I'll be a lot stronger."

And he'll probably be getting into more trouble once he returns to the field. "I'm thinking of dancing with the refs," he says. "I already have it planned. As soon as he raises his hand I'm going to get right in frame with him and then just start dancing with him."

Touchdown tango, anyone?

In other Dancing dish, Jake Pavelka's Bachelor girlfriend Vienna Girardi is stuffing the ballot box with her many votes. "I called 11 times," she told us at Perez Hilton's birthday party.

At the same bash, Louis Van Amstel said his partner Niecy Nash makes it hard to rehearse sometimes—but in a good way. "It's too much fun," he said. "I almost have to leave the room because I'm snorting laughing."
