Now that we know the full 16-member cast of “Dancing with the Stars,” pairings of celebs and professional dancers have begun trickling out. Donny Osmond lucked out with cutie Aussie Kym Johnson, who previously danced with David Allan Grier, Mark Cuban, Warren Sapp and Joey Fatone. The two have already begun rehearsing.
Actress Debi Mazar is paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. I’m not as familiar with him. He previously partnered Denise Richards, Misty May-Treanor and Mel B. of the Spice Girls.
Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin is paired Alec Mazo, who is married to dancer Edyta Sliwinska. Alec has previously danced with Toni Braxton, Paulina Porizkova and Josie Maran. Speaking of Edyta, she is partnering Ashley Hamilton, who is hopefully a better dancer than his father George. Edyta partnered George back in season 2. She has also partnered Lawrence Taylor, Jeffrey Ross and Jason Taylor.
And hey, at least none of the “Dancing with the Stars” professionals have been charged with sexual assault!
