    Hahahahaha. Ok. This is ‘effing embarassing with these z-listers.

    When this cast list reads: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Liam Neeson, Viggo Mortensen, Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Will Smith, Sigourney Weaver, Tom Cruise, Samuel L. Jackson, Kirsten Dunst & Kate Beckinsale…THEN they can it Dancing w/ the “Stars”!

    With an exception of few, this isn’t a list worth watching the show for. Bristol Palin?? “The Situation”?? Those aren’t stars! Bring on Elijah Wood, Bruce Willis, Ellen Degeneres.. THOSE are stars!

    And since when the hell is Bristol Palin a “star”?
    Oh that’s right, because she got knocked up and no one dared to call her on the irony. My mistake.

    rofl Bristol tries so hard not to be demed as a whore when in reality she is.

    LMAO!

    LOL! This is hilarious coming from a girl best known for being a teenage mother. I guess she’s playing to her mother’s base of support- the Christian right.

    SNOOZE!!!!

  • ricochet

    With this list are they trying to fail? And BP? She’s a bigger disaster than BP!

  • mimi

    Rick Fox is too tall for Cheryl Burke. He should’ve been paired with Edyta who quit. Karina and the Situation are a good match, but can he dance? But I love this show, even though the producers are stupid. They better go to Edyta on their hands and knees and beg her to come back.

  • mailey

    oh snap, jennifer grey.
    she’s going to bring her dirty dancing chops – watch out.
