Dancing With The Stars Cast Announced


At this point, I think I get more excited about the cast announcement each season for Dancing With The Stars than the actual show. This time I am also interested to see the new pros and who they are because a lot of favorites will not be returning which will shake up the voting. Obviously Andy Dick (photographed above passed out at a stranger's house) being given any kind of television show is noteworthy. The fact that he and Lisa Vanderpump are going to be castmates is a train wreck waiting to happen. I think Lisa will actually be the first to go if Any does not overdose and if Wynona Judd actually commits to practicing. The winner will be either Victor Ortiz, Aly Raisman or Dorothy Hamill.

No Maks!!!!!! :(

But I'm irrationally excited for Lisa Vanderpump!!! Now that Maks won't be on, I can use all my votes for Lisa! Squee!!!

GemTwist said...

I'd only watch if they made them all live together.

greenmountaingal said...

I can't get into this show. I've tried, but I think it's too long and boring after a while. That being said, I want Ms Vanderpump to win simply because she's fabulous.

Mitchellaneous said...

Not really fair that Zendaya is on a dance show. The most annoying current Disney Channel show (and that's saying a lot), but she is already a dancer.

rejectedcarebear said...

I will watch because of Andy Dick! I shared this on Ents facebook page earlier but Andy licked my face once. He was a freaking mess when I met him and this was 5 years ago.

Ashlea said...

Carebear I was just thinking the same thing!! He is going to be so outrageous I can't wait. He licked your face? Were you up to date on your booster shots? Lol jk

Me said...

well, at least i've heard of most of the "stars". the disney girl IS a dancer. that's what her show is about. i think one of the other kids from that show was on before.

interesting time for wynonna to go on a show. would thin she'd be bus with her husband's recovery and rehab.

fancyscreenname said...

Andy should only dance as Britney Aguliera......

What FUN.....

:-D

Christopher Cruz said...

Andy Dick? Passed out at a strangers' house? Never!!!

rejectedcarebear said...

@ashlea I was in college when this happened so I did have insurance and was up to date :)

libby said...

Pickler works HARD, and their DWTS crowd is going to EAT UP her charm. Seriously. She's good on tv. VERY smart move by her and the show!

Ha!- love the Andy Dick as Christina bit! I don't watch this show but will check out Lisa's moves only because I love her. If she's terrible I won't watch again. I feel old, I only know 5 people on that list :(

LottaColada said...

How long before Andy Dick gets kicked off for inappropriate behavior? He's going to scare the shit out of his poor partner.

O'Really said...

I don't watch this show either but I absolutely love So You Think You Can Dance. As far as having a dancer on there, they've done it before with Nicole Scherzinger. Completely unfair to the other contestants.

Susan said...

Andy Dick seems like such a tortured soul.

I am stunned that Lisa Vanderpump is doing this. This show is such hard work, which is why any Olympian or professional athlete has an edge, IMO. Jasper Jax. OMG. I don't know which show I've been on hiatus from longer: DWTS or GH.

I probably won't watch. I can't devote three hours over two days per week to a show. It's just too much. Plus, Mad Men is coming back. Praise the lord.

I can't believe Maks never won DWTS.

Amber said...

Andy Dick...man, they know how to suck me in, don't they?

@Susan - I love GH.

EmEyeKay said...

I cannot believe my darling Lisa would do DWTS. I feel let down.

Kerlypet said...

Yay for Jacoby!

figgy said...

I went to college with Andy Dick (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). Apparently he was pretty cool and a lot of fun back then, and I've have been sad to watch what he's gone through since.

He was in a play with a friend of mine, and they were stuck at a remote storage facility with a bunch of costumes waiting to be picked up. Andy kept wrapping a boa around his neck and flouncing around, crying "I'm LIZA, damn it!" Yeah, he was funny once upon a time.

JoElla said...

Figgy he was funny back in the day. I still hold out hope for him.

Della said...

They need to change the name to Dancing with the Has Beens. None of these people make me want to watch. I will be deleting my DVR timer.

Audrey said...

I never watch the show, but love that Dorothy Hamill is on! Who DIDN'T have her haircut in the 70's?

Aly said...

Dorothy Hamill is 5 years younger than Kirstie Alley and Jane Seymour, who both did fairly well, and she's in much, much better shape due to the skating exhibitions and certainly more dedicatde and experienced with a tough training regimen.

libby said...

Oh yeah, I had a Dorothy Hamill. SO wanted to be her. I loved how her hair spun into like a hair-sphere, when she twirled really fast (can't name the move, sorry).

SueRH said...

I love Lisa Vanderpump, I will definitely be voting! :)

Renoblondee said...

Interesting cast. I'll be watching!

mikey said...

I am a dance addict; it doesn't matter to me who is on the show, I'll watch it. I am intrigued by Dorothy Hamill, Kellie, Wynonna and Andy Dick. This could turn out to be a very interesting season!

Sugar said...

I love this stupid show and I'm THRILLED that our delicate English Rose will be dancing! She seems made for the slow dances so I'm looking forward to a jive or quickstep from her! Andy dick will be excellent tv as will Pick Pickler!

Gayeld said...

@greenmountaingal. DVR the show and then just ff'ed to the dance sequences. It's a much better show that way. *g*

@Susan. It's been longer since I watched GH. *g* The ruined Brenda, Lucy left (and lost Kevin's baby. *pout*,) they ruined Carly (who really belongs with Jason.) Don't even get me started on Luke & Laura.

And yes, I had a Dorothy Hamill, my freshman year of high school.

stigs84 said...

I'm surprised they cast Lisa Vanderpump, I thought I read somewhere that ABC would never cast a real housewife because Bravo is owned by NBC and because they don't consider the housewives to be big enough stars

auntliddy said...

Talk about D list? More like Z list! What a calvelcade of losers!!

katydid said...

Susan, I heard the Mad Men theme on an ad on AMC and got all giddy the other day. Cannot wait!!!

ethorne said...

I've never watched DWTS, now I might have to bc of my dahling Lisa. And Andy Dick!

Do you think Ashley Judd will be in the audience?

Turkish Taffy said...

I might actually watch this mess for once because I want to see Aly Raisman's parents in the audience doing their moves. STICKIT!!!

car54 said...

I might watch--they lost me on the all stars season but I like the Pickle, Wynona, and Dorothy....Can't believe Lisa would do this....she's going all out to be not just a housewife and famous.

Sherry said...

eThorne, no WAY will Ashley cheer on anyone but herself!

And yes! I had the Dorothy Hamill haircut when I was a teen. It was glorious..

I am sure Andy will scare the hell out of his partner but you cannot practice drunk and this may save him. Wonder what made him commit to it.

Jazzy said...

Now I have to watch so that I can vote for Lisa Vanderpump. I love how Lisa got DWTS and Kyle got the budget diving show. I'm sure she'll be in the audience next to Brandi, seething with a smile next to her greasy husband.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

I'm another one who had the Dorothy Hamill wedge haircut as a teenager...unfortunately, I found out that it doesn't work so well on naturally curly hair. *sigh* Live and learn, I suppose... (Did anyone else used to get Long & Silky or Short & Sassay Clairol conditioners back in the day? I think Dorothy may have been helping peddle the latter, but I'm not 100% sure.)

prolixe said...

Wow, Andy Dick looks like Ferris's teacher!

I love Ben Stein.

Sugar said...

Nailed it, Jazzy!

Susan said...

Do any other GH afficionados find it CRAZY that ABC changed the time of the show?!? I'm on the bitter bus about that. It's supposed to be 3 p.m., damn it. I just hope it doesn't get canceled. I know soaps are so 1982. Now if Antonio Sabato Jr. of Jagger fame was cast on DWTS, this would be must-see DVRing for moi. LOL.

Melissa Gorga is probably PISSED that Lisa is the first housewife to get this gig. And somewhere, Teresa is cackling that she shot straight to Celebrity Apprentice. I feel like CA is a hotter show than DWTS, but I could be way off on that. I know at one point DWTS had huge ratings.

califblondy said...

Lisa is getting my votes. I can't wait to see Ken and Jiggy in the audience.

discoflux said...

The best part is going to be hearing Lisa's snide comments about everyone.

The second best part will be watching everyone trying to figure out what the hell to do with Andy Dick.

Susan said...

Andy Dick is hilarious in Old School. But I'm a sucker for a Vince Vaughn film, formulaic as they are.

Lisa and Andy Dick would probably make for great TV.

Agent**It said...

EmEyeKay, I wonder if she'll wear only pink tones. Ken and Giggy?? in the audience will be worth a look.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I haven't watched this show in many seasons, but I think Kellie, Andy and Lisa will make for great television.

Mango said...

...Andy Dick (photographed above passed out at a stranger's house)...

There are paving stones and bricks in the photo. That couch looks as if it's been dumped by a curb, all ready for garbage truck pick up.

KaySea said...

The 12th cast member who probably won't be announced for another 1-2 weeks is Sean Lowe, the current Bachelor ... paired with Peta Murgatroyd. I think they'll go pretty far ... Sean is in excellent shape and I adore Peta.

dragon said...

Only Here for Andy DicK!

nudibelle said...

hope lisa doesnt break a hip or something

Agent**It said...

That pix reminds me of RDJ. Only RDJ was butt naked when neighbors found him zonked out on their couch.

Mooshki said...

Hey, I thought Lisa looked pretty good on that pole! And we know she's good at spinning circles. I think this will be the first season I actually watch, just for her! (Give me SYTYCD any damned day!)

E Gee Be said...

I heard that bachelor scoop on twitter today! And ethorne, I think you may be on to something with the whole "Ashley in the audience" idea. Great way for her to show how loving and accessible she is, not nearly the nasty piece of work we have read about...
I am all in just so I can say that Andy Dick licked my girl Rej's face when she was in college! And for my Lisa, I even watched her restaurant show (somehow left that off the "your turn"), just for glimpse into her pink, flowered-swing life.
