New “DWTS” Cast Announced
With the new season of “Dancing With the Stars” right around the corner (premieres September 20th on ABC), people have been anxiously awaiting the full cast list. Little by little we’ve been hearing about certain “celebrities” signing on (aka Bristol Palin, Audrina Patridge…seriously?), but now we’ve got it all.
I have to say, I’m not impressed at all. Considering the bombshells we had last season (Nicole Scherzinger, Evan Lysacek, Shannon Doherty, Chad Ochocinco, or even Kate Gosselin), these names seem kind of anticlimactic. I guess Michael Bolton’s kind of funny…and it’d be nice to see Brandy again, I suppose. And Florence Henderson just for nostalgia purposes. Kurt Warner and Rick Fox are just the staple athletes who are there so that stereotypical women with stereotypical boyfriends/husbands can be like, “Look, honey, someone for you to watch, too! Oh and he’s so cute!”
But quite honestly, I don’t even recognize a lot of these names. I know the name Margaret Cho because Perez Hilton likes her so much, but I don’t know what she does. Or Kyle Massey? I had to look him up on Wikipedia.
Who is excited about David Hasselhoff? Excited to see him fall over on the stage, maybe, from being too inebriated. (Too soon?)
In all honesty, I hope Jennifer Grey wins. She’s the one with experience (Dirty Dancing, etc.) so she’s got that unfair advantage that seems to help a lot of the winners (Drew Lachey, Nicole Scherzinger, etc.), but I’m okay with it this time. Really, DWTS? Really? Could you *get* a more unlikable cast (for the most part)?
Will you be tuning in?
