Let’s Check Out The New Dancing With the Stars Cast!

Did you see that exclamation mark at the end of that headline? It’s because I’m incredibly excited about this spring’s cast of Dancing With the Stars.  I’m not even being sarcastic, I’m totally, definitely going to watch it.  Let me break down the cast and tell you why.

First of all, Kirstie Allie is there, and she’s obviously the big star, which is a little sad.  Do you remember when she actually worked and didn’t just talk about her weight all the time?  I don’t, I’m too young, but I imagine that would have been a lovely time. Another notable is Ralph Macchio.  He was in The Karate Kid. There’s also our beloved Kendra Wilkinson, who is most well known for her sex tapes, I believe.  Are you guys psyched yet?

The bulk of the cast consists of people that I’ve never heard of/don’t care about:  wrestler Chris Jericho, boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, rapper/actor Romeo Miller, model Petra Nemcova, actress Chelsea Kane, football player Hines Ward, and talk show host Wendy Williams.

Finally, there’s the reason I’m going to watch this season of Dancing With the Stars religiously:  Mike Catherwood.  Also known as Psycho Mike, he’s a DJ from L.A.’s KROQ station, and he also co-hosts Loveline with Dr. Drew five nights a week. And you guys, he’s a wonderful, beautiful man.  Here’s a video where he and Dr. Drew preciously discuss cooking with semen, and here’s a video of him powering through the Cinnamon Challenge.  That dude’s going to be waltzing around on my television every week starting on March 21st, and I’m so pumped about it.

So what are your thoughts?  Are you going to watch this season?  Do you have any predictions about the competition? Are you in love with Mike Catherwood yet?  Let me know in the comments.

  • Once upon a time Kirstie Alley was the funniest woman on television and she was smoking hot to boot. Part of me will always have a fondness for her.

  • Oh, Emily. Your posts always make my day. I have no idea what you’re talking about, but your snarky upbeatiness makes me giggle.

  • Emily…. You have way too much time on your hands, I think you ought to go out & get your meat cut

  • I think this season of dancing with the stars was so interesting all the way down to the stars who were chosen to dance this time around. They should have had Beyonce, Jessica Ferguson, and/or Rihanna perform just to have something a little more upbeat.
