Dancing with the Stars

The list is out! We finally know who will be on next season’s Dancing with the Stars. I’m sure this excites no one, except me. Well my aerobics instructor is probably pumped about the list being released…. she’s really into this show.
Here’s the list….

• Melanie "Mel B" Brown, 32, Spice Girls ("Scary Spice") singer (pro partner: Maksim Chmerkovskiy)
• Sabrina Bryan, 22, actress/singer (The Cheetah Girls) (pro partner: Mark Ballas)
• Helio Castroneves, 32, racecar driver (pro partner: Julianne Hough)
• Mark Cuban, 48, businessman (owner of NBA's Dallas Mavericks) (pro partner: Kym Johnson)
• Jennie Garth, 35, actress (Beverly Hills, 90210) (pro partner: Derek Hough, older brother of Julianne Hough)
• Josie Maran, 29, supermodel (pro partner Alec Mazo)
• Cameron Mathison, 38, actor (All My Children) (pro partner: Edyta Sliwinska
• Floyd Mayweather, Jr., 30, boxer (pro partner: Karina Smirnoff)
• Wayne Newton, 65, singer (pro partner: Cheryl Burke)
• Marie Osmond, 47, singer/doll designer (pro partner: Jonathan Roberts)
• Albert Reed, 22, supermodel (pro partner: Anna Trebunskaya)
• Jane Seymour, 56, actress (pro partner: Tony Dovolani)

I was skimming the list and the first name caught my eye. Scary Spice is going to be on Dancing with the Stars? Isn’t this going to be a HUGE conflict with her Spice Girls Reunion Tour? How is she going to tour with the other Spice Girls if she has to rehearse for tons of hours? I’m planning to attend the SG Reunion Tour, but I’m not shelling out the money if Scary Spice isn’t going to be there. I mean it won’t be the same without her. Ok, I will shell out the money even if she isn’t there. Also, didn’t Scary Spice, I refuse to call her Melanie or Mel B, recently have a baby? Who is going to take care of that baby?

The second name that caught my eye was Mark Cuban. What has this man not done? He’s done it all. He owns an NBA team, he owns…well I don’t know what else he owns but he owns the Mavericks. I wonder if he’s single?

I also noticed we have a Cheetah Girl on this season. If you do not know, The Cheetah Girls were popular on The Disney Channel before High School Musical was born. After HSM took over Disney Channel and the world, The Cheetah girls were pushed to the backseat or The Disney Channel 3. I’m not for sure which girl this is, I only saw The Cheetah Girls once. I wish it was Raven, now she’s funny!

Oh and how can we forget Wayne Newton? I’m going to be honest…I thought he was dead. When I saw him on the list I was like, well I guess he’s alive and kicking. Good for Wayne! Proving to American that the he can still move.

I'm not even going to comment on Marie Osmond. I'm now taking bets for how many times we have to see her brother sitting in the audience!

i've never watched the show before, but with wayne newton joing the cast how can one resist? the only thing better would be if robert goulet stepped down from his golden throne in vegas to do a number.

I thought this was the stupidest idea for a show when I first heard it, but I got into it during the end of the season two years ago and REALLY got into it last year (I started taping it).

I for one am very, very thrilled to see that Scary Spice will be joining the Dancing with the Stars cast. I have never watched the show but being the HUGE Spice Girls fan that I am, I will probably become an avid watcher. I am a bit concerned about the conflict with the reunion tour.

I'm going for Kelly Taylor! I think a Kelly Taylor/Wayne Newton smackdown in the finals would be sensational. Even though I've only watched part of the show like twice.
