Dancing with The Stars new lineup: Kate Gosselin, Pam Anderson

The new lineup for Dancing With The Stars was announced, and apart from Kate Gosselin (who surely leaked the news ahead of the official list in order to get some more publicity mileage) it’s not half bad. And in “not half bad” I mean that I recognize most of the competitors’ names and am even interested in seeing some of them dance. First up is greasy has-been Pamela Anderson, who will incite the censors with her fabric-challenged outfits while trying to dance her way out of the trailer park. There’s also Bachelor Jake, who made his final choice last night, Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls, gold winning figure skater Evan Lysacek, and ESPN anchor and peeping tom victim, Erin Andrews. Here’s more:

It’s official: Kate Gosselin is headed back to television.

The 34-year-old mother-of-eight will compete on the ninth season of the ABC reality hit, it was announced Monday.

Her competition: Bachelor Jake Pavelka, Pamela Anderson; Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, soap star Aiden Turner, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews, Shannen Doherty, Buzz Aldrin, Niecy Nash, Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger and Olympic skater Evan Lysacek.

Many of you were rolling your eyes at the statements in Kate Gosselin’s Radar Online announcement yesterday. One that was particularly laughable: “the mom of 8 likely will do most of her practicing near her Pennsylvania home because she insists on putting her children first.” You know that the next step for Kate will be posing in a bikini on a magazine cover with “how I lost 15 pounds.” She’s just one step behind Nadya “I’m doing it all for my kids” Suleman.

As I said yesterday, I doubt Kate will be able to bring it anyway. I’m really rooting for Niecy Nash! I love her on Clean House and find her so much fun. I’m also interested in seeing Shannen Doherty after all this time. There are rumors that she’s been gunning for her own reality show to help revive her career, but DWTS will probably do much more for her if she’s able to pull it off with grace and a good attitude.

Looking through photos of the other contestants, I have to say that Chad Ochocinco is one gorgeous man! (The bald African American guy, below.) Aiden Turner isn’t bad, but he looks like one of the “Jersey Shore” cast with that spiky hair.

    Ewww, that picture of Pam scares the living daylight out of me!!

  2. Rianna says:

    I would love to see Shannen win. I love that crazy bitch.

  3. guesty says:

    wish kate was dancing with her possum do instead of that horrible weave…

  4. Lindsay says:

    Never mind I read it wrong.

  5. sarah says:

    I love Aiden Turner. He’s so sexy. Chad Ochocinco is an ass. Shannon is crazy and I love her too. As for the rest, bleh. I’m so sick of seeing Kate Gosselin, it’s not even funny.

  6. nycmom10024 says:

    Aiden Turner was a soap hottie. That is not the best photo is I ever seen of him. He is actually pretty good-looking. Pair that up with his British accent and he is smokin’ (to me!.
    Hope he can dance.

  7. Shelly says:

    Aiden all the way. Pam is just scary these days. And I know people will tune in to see Kate so they can have something to gripe and complain about the next day! LOL

  8. Leek says:

    I can’t stand Kate. I hope Shannen chews her up and spits her out.

  9. lucy2 says:

    I think the term “Stars” gets more lenient with each season.
    I’m rooting for Miss Niecy too! And I’m hoping for some sort of bitch fight between Shannen and Kate.
    Wasn’t Shannen trolling for some reality show to do? Looks like she got her wish. Both she and Pammy were once on hit shows – oh how the mighty have fallen (and in Pam’s case, if they fall face first bounce right back up)

    It always seems a bit unfair when some of the contestants have had dance training already. Is it fair to pit a Pussycat Doll against Buzz Aldrin?

  10. TaylorB says:

    I know they have no chance against a figure skater and a Pussycat Doll, but I am rooting for Niecy and Buzz Aldrin. That being said, I would love to be a fly on the wall in a room with Pam, Kate, and Shannen.

    hahahaha Holy hell! Maybe that can be one of their signature dance ‘moves’ the ‘Pammy Bounce’.

  12. Just a Poster says:

    I will watch anything with Buzz in it.. even suffer through the Train Wreck called Pam.

  13. shel says:

    most of those female celebrities just want to join dancinge with the stars for weight loss purposes!

  14. kelbear says:

    This is one crazy cast of “stars”. Love It! Can’t wait!

  15. Johanna says:

    Yeah, we know who Chad is, as if he was the guy we weren’t supposed to know who he was. Who I don’t know is the guy w/the book & the guy holding his arms up like a boxer.
    I can’t stand Nicole Scherzinger, I hope she gets eliminated first!

  16. Exiled says:

    Buzz’ stitches may pop and then he may trip over his own face…. what?? I’m just sayin!

  17. Johanna says:

    I feel like such a douche! My coworker just told me that was Buzz… as in the second man on the moon. I didn’t even recognize him, he definitely needs no introduction.

  18. Jen says:

    Pam Anderson looks like someone just held up a mirror in front of her and she was horrified that she went out in public looking like that.

    I grew up watching Shannon Doherty, and as crazy as she seems to be, I’m still rooting for her.

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    Niecy Nash cracks me up. Can she dance without the flower in her hair falling out? (I love her!)I clean my house while that show is on, because I don’t want to be like the people she’s berating!

  20. Ron says:

    I want to see Pam and Possum Head in a throwdown on Dancing with the Weeves!

  21. Jackie says:

    Go Niecy and Shannen!!! They are the two I will be rooting for. I don’t think Nicole will have much going for her because of her “dance experience”. They don’t let you use stripper poles in DWTS.

  22. Maritza says:

    According US magazine Kate will be dancing with Tony Dovolani, there goes my hopes that it were Max her partner! Guess they thought there would be to much fighting between them. I bet Max will get either Nicole or Pamela.

  23. Celebitchy says:

    @Sumodo I clean my house watching Clean House too! Those people make me feel bad about clutter and I don’t want to end up like that.

  24. YoYingYouYumYee says:

    I hope they have Sarah Palin on DWTS next season. She’s the best…

  25. Popcorny says:

    I’m, sorry, was there an article that went with that pic of Pam on the front?
    It’s just that it’s so hideous and scary that my eyeballs retreated to my throat and left my shakey fingers to type an pleading SOS (Save Our Sight) to not post that pic again. YIKERS!!!

  26. juiceinla says:

    Everyday Pam looks more and more like Alice Cooper in drag…. is that redundant? IDK.

  27. Judy says:

    Would love to see Shannen slap the $hit outta Kate…might even do a first and phone in a vote for Shannen in that event.

  28. gg says:

    Yeahh, I wanna see miz plastic try and dance with the giant rubber ta-tas.

  29. Judy says:

    LMAO…just went to RadarOnline and there are pics of Kate for her interview with Jimmy Kimmel and who is in the background…her LOVER the bodyguard. Give me a F—— BREAK! This NOBODY needs a bodyguard when famous stars travel freely without one. TLC, you are as big a fraud as Kate is. Won’t be watching anymore.

  30. dovesgate says:

    Pam is just modeling the look on all viewers faces when she performs her first dance. I’m definitely watching this season.
