Dancing with the Stars is messing with an 80’s icon! The Dancing with the Stars season 11 cast members have been announced. I kind of got into the show at the end of season 10, so when the show returns (with a two-hour season premiere) on Monday, September 20 at 8pm on ABC I think I’ll be watching.
Jennifer Grey is one of the new cast members for season 11. Sigh. She was in a movie all about dancing (uh, Dirty Dancing) and if she somehow doesn’t do well, it’ll somehow taint the movie. It’s official – nothing is sacred. I’m going to go carry a watermelon somewhere. In the meantime, here’s a rundown of the twelve celebrities (stars) and their professional dance partners.
Michael Bolton (Grammy Award-winning singer) will partner with Chelsie Hightower.
Brandy (actress and singer) will partner with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. (His name is not going to be easy to type ever, huh?)
Margaret Cho (comedienne and actress) with partner with Louis van Amstel.
Rick Fox (an NBC champion who also had a cameo on One Tree Hill once – yes, I saw it) will partner with Cheryl Burke.
Jennifer Grey (film and TV actress) will partner with Derek Hough.
David Hasselhoff (actor, national joke) will partner with Kym Johnson.
Florence Henderson (actress) will partner with Corky Ballas.
Kyle Massey (TV actor) will partner with Lacey Schwimmer.
Bristol Palin (Sarah Palin’s daughter who got pregnant and had all of that drama with her babydaddy – yea, her) will partner with Mark Ballas.
Audrina Patridge (MTV reality actress from The Hills) will partner with Tony Dovolani.
Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino (MTV reality actor from The Jersey Shore) will partner with Karina Smirnoff.
Kurt Warner (former pro-NFL quarterback) will partner with Anna Trebunskaya.
