Dancing with the Stars Cast Revealed

Dancing with the Stars Cast Revealed

Grab those dancing shoes because the cast for the next edition of Dancing with the Stars was announced this morning.  Are you ready…here we go?

Heather Mills – Paul McCartney’s ex wife has turned into quite the publicity whore.  She’ll tell you that it’s to raise awareness of those with disabilities, but she’s lying.  She likes the spotlight.

Billy Ray Cyrus – The man can line dance, but can he waltz?  The country singer turned actor will put it all on the line this season.

Joey Fatone – An unfair advantage?  I mean, Joey has been dancing for years with the best of the best.  Anyone that has been taught by Wade Robson better take the crown.  Joey, you better represent.  Any chance JT will show up in the audience to support Joey?  Not a chance in hell. Lance and Chris Kilpatrick? Definitely.

Check out the rest of the cast after the jump! 

Leeza Gibbons – Snore.  The talk show host doesn’t excite me in the least.  I can’t imagine that she’s going to be any good.  She does have nice legs…that’s something.

Laila Ali – This personal trainer is Mohammed Ali’s offspring, so at least we know she’ll bring some guts and glory to the competition.  But can this boxer work it out in the mini dress and heels?  Hmmm.

Vincent Pastore – Here’s our joke contestant.  Come on, you really think a guy from The Sopranos has what it takes to be dancing with a seasoned ballroom dancer? The guy had a heart attack last yearm so we’ll be lucky if he makes it out of rehersal alive.

Apolo Anton Ohno – The Olympic gold medalist is fast on the ice, but does he have the footwork without his skates.  I’m intrigued to see what this guy can do.  He kind of irks me a bit, but he might turn out to be ok.

Paulina Porizkova –  Is the chick that married the lead singer of The Cars? Why can’t I place her.  She’s a former supermodel so let’s assume she has the grace to pull off the pretty dances.  Will she be the lady to beat?

Shandi Finnessey – A former Miss USA (2004).  Well here comes the pretty.  But come on, she’s a Miss USA.  She’ll probably be booted in the second round when they find her porn tape.

…and saving the best for last….DRUMROLL PLEASE

Ian Ziering – Steve Sanders in the house y’all.  I don’t care if he stands there and doesn’t move a muscle while his partner dances all around him…Ian Ziering is getting my vote – every week!!  Dude, he’s an original ’09er. And are you ready for this?  Steve Sanders is 42 years old.  Damn I feel old.  I hope he wins so they can have the victory party at the Peach Pit After Dakr.

    Okay, I will admit that I love this show. I was a closet lover the first season, but came out after that. I have been waiting for this announcement for weeks now, and I have to say that this list is a huge disappointment (with the possible exception of Ian Ziering). There was a lot of talent and personality last season (tell me you weren’t surprised by Jerry Springer??), and all I can say to this list of “stars” (and I use the term loosely) is… ehh. Hopefully they will surprise me. And, for the record, Heather Mills is skanky. I hope she gets voted off the first week. What exacly qualifies her to be on tv? She can say that this is to show that people with disabilities can do anything, but I don’t buy it for a minute. She is a publicity whore.

    God, I used to LOVE Steve Sanders. Oh 90210, how I mourn your loss.

    doesnt Heather Mills only have one leg?

    She’s gonna get sympathy votes.

    you really made me giggle out loud with that last comment about Ian Ziering + the peach pit 🙂

    I think Heather Mills is doing this to garner “good” publicity after this debacle with Paul. Joey should be fun to watch.

    It’s funny that I am commenting, because I have only watched two episodes of this show ever … but I have friends + family who talked about it all the time 🙂

    I had the *hugest* crush on Apollo when the Olympics were in my home town, so I’ll probably tune in for that.

    I was really into the show the first season. It was my summer dance show (which has now been replaced by So you think you can dance?) and after that I haven’t really been much into it, though my parents are obsessed with it. Maybe it’s because I know Max, and hate him and prefer not to watch him every week … also it’s on at times during other shows. I do love watching the dancing though … as a semi-latin dancer myself.
    Anyway, the cast has been improving season and after season, which is great, because the only person that I knew in season 1 was the guy from Seinfeld. I’m glad it’s a hit. Maybe I’ll watch this season– I do love Ian.

    Don’t feel bad about Ian being 42, he was close to 30 when 90210 started… I remember they were kind of hush-hush about it. It is scary that he’s over 40, though… lol
