The new cast of the first Dancing With The Stars for 2011 (season 12) consists of Wendy Williams, Romeo, Sugar Ray Leonard, Kirstie Alley, Kendra Wilkinson and a motley crew in general, that will probably draw big ratings. See who else made the cut below:
Ralph Macchio, 49 – the star of the original Karate Kid movies
Kirstie Alley, 60 – Fat Actress and Cheers
Petra Nemcova, 31 – a Czech model
Psycho Mike, a.k.a. Michael Catherwood, 31 – a popular DJ for KROQ in Los Angeles
Chelsea Kane, 22 – She’s best known for playing Stella on Disney Channel’s Jonas L.A.
Chris Jericho, 40 – pro wrestler (WWE)
Hines Ward, 34 – NFL Pro Bowler from the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s the third wide receiver to appear on DWTS.
Hopefully there won’t be any shadyness in voting this season a la the Brandy/Bristol Palin scandal. Y’all know Bristol Palin should have gotten the boot over Brandy. But that’s the past. Who do you think is going to be stiff competition this time around? [Via BET’s Stay Tuned]
