The highly anticipated announcement from ABC regarding the new Dancing With the Stars cast happened earlier today. We have listed the cast out below, and by all accounts this may be the most entertaining cast yet. As usual, there is quite a selection of stars, misfits, has-beens, athletes and tabloid stars. Now, without further ado, here is your season 13 cast.
David Arquette: Comedian and former husband of Courtney Cox
Chaz Bono: Only child of legends Sonny Bono and Cher. The first transgendered contestant ever.
Nancy Grace: Former criminal prosecutor who has her own show on HLN.
Ricki Lake: Former talk show host who will try to launch a new talk show next year.
Rob Kardashian: Surprisingly enough, the only Kardashian you may not be familiar with. He is the brother of Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian.
Ron Artest: Laker’s basketball player who has had his share of troubles.
Chynna Phillips: Former singer in the group Wilson-Phillips.
Kristin Cavallari: Former star of MTV’s reality series Laguna Beach and The Hills occasionally appears on TV shows but is mostly dedicated to her charity work.
Carson Kressley: Star of the former hit “Queer Eye For the Straight Guy.”
J.R. Martinez: The “All My Children” actor who suffered burns over 40% of his body when he was deployed in Iraq. He is now a motivational speaker.
Hope Solo: The sexy goalie of the United States female soccer team.
Elisabetta Canalis: George Clooney’s ex, but the gorgeous model-actress is a famous TV and film personality in her native Italy.
This cast is pretty eclectic and should definitely be entertaining. Keep your eyes peeled for the start date.
