New Cast for ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Announced
Last night The Bachelor was pre-empted to announce the new cast of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. This will be the 12th season for the show, and as usual the cast is an eclectic mix of athletes, bimbos and has-beens. Meet the new cast:
Ralph Macchio age 49. Macchio was the original Karate Kid and played the title character in three films back in the 1980′s. Ralph still has that baby face that he is known for, but did anyone else notice that it looked like he had waxed off his eyebrows last night?
Kirstie Alley age 60. Alley looks remarkable for her age. Alley starred on television’s Cheers and appeared in the Look Who’s Talking movies. Lately, her professional life has taken a back seat to her ongoing issues with weight gain. I think everyone will be curious to see if Alley sheds pounds during the show.
Petra Nemcova age 31. Nemcova did not appear in person last night, but she is a stunning Czech model who survived the 2004 Tsunami in Thailand. Unfortunately, her fiance was not so luck, and died in disaster. Nemcova has become politically active, and founded the Happy Hearts Fund, an organization that helps children after disasters.
Wendy Williams age 46. Talk show host who is frequently picked on by Joel McHale on The Soup.
Sugar Ray Leonard age 54. Boxer who won titles in multiple weight divisions, and won a gold medal. He appears ageless, and spoke about the spiritual component of the competition. Hmmm.
Psycho Mike age 31. Also known as Michael Catherwood. He co-hosts Loveline Radio with Dr. Drew and is a popular KROQ dee-jay in Los Angeles.
Chelsea Kane age 22. Disney starlet who has appeared on The Wizards of Waverly Place and Jonas.
Romeo age 21. This singer dropped the “Lil’” from his name a while back. He is a rapper and actor. His father is Percy Miller.
Kendra Wilkinson age 25. Former star of The Girls Next Door, playboy playmate, sex tape participant. Now stars in her own reality show on E! called Kendra. Married to NFL star Hank Baskett. Just bringing a little class to the show, you know.
Chris Jericho age 40. Pro WWE wrestler.
Hines Ward age 34. NFL pro from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
So what do you think of the new cast? Any predictions for the new season? The show premieres on March 21 on ABC.
