DWTS - Coming Monday, September 22!

The new line-up has been announced for Dancing with the Stars (or Dwarf Stars, as I call them since Pluto was demoted to dwarf planet). Here is the list but the best news is that Maks is back!!



• Toni Braxton and season one DWTS champ Alec Mazo
• Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer
• Ted McGinley and Inna Brayer
• Cloris Leachman and Corky Ballas
• Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson
• Rocco DiSpirito and Karina Smirnoff
• Kim Kardashian and reigning DWTS champ Mark Ballas
• Maurice Green and two-time DWTS champ Cheryl Burke
• Misty May-Treanor and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
• Susan Lucci and Tony Dovolani
• Jeffrey Ross and Edyta Sliwinska
• Cody Linley two-time DWTS champ Julianne Hough
• Brooke Burke and Derek Hough

For more information about the dwarf stars and commentaries that echo what I think, check out Jim's post here.

There are some new dancers this time and some who haven't been there for a while. I dout that Edyta will get to stay long because she's dancing with comedian Jeffrey Ross. I'm glad Corky Ballas, Mark's father, is partnered with Cloris Leachman, who will be a hoot. Toni Braxton and Alec Mazo (Edyta's husband) will look good together. Married couple Jonathan Roberts and Anna Trebynskya aren't returning this season, I notice. From what I hear, the pros make more money in dance competitions than they do on this show. It depends on how long they stay on. I hope they are getting better deals now that they have their own fans, too. Possibly the publicity helps them branch out to other things, but they are already well-known in the dance world. Besides, how well would the celebrities do without them?

This cast isn't bowling me over - though I do love Cloris Leachman who at 82 is the oldest to compete and I am guessing will make a go of it.

I only hope Cheeryl and Julianne last long for purely selfish (oogling) reasons.

Thanks, Andie! :-)

I know what you mean, Chris, but I'm usually surprised by someone and hope that happens this time. I'm not carried away with any of these that much. I hope Cheryl and Julianne stay, too. I like them both. Of course, I want to see Maks stick around for my similar selfish reasons. So I hope they entertain us.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy...Love Cloris. She was on a roast the other night ( bob Saget)and they hit her hard with age jokes. She was not only a good sport but with her turn she reamed them new orifices everywhere. She was tops!
