HOLLYWOOD—It seems like quite some time since we last talked about the hit reality-competition series “Dancing With the Stars.” The series has been around for quite some time so the fatigue has absolutely set in on the series. The star power has lacked in recent seasons, but I will say the revelation on Wednesday, August 21, really brought out some major star power if you are asking me.
I mean we have supermodel Christie Brinkley America! Yes, you heard me correctly Christie Brinkley will be hitting the dance floor this fall. There is “Dawson’s Creek” alum James Van Der Beek and “Queer-Eye” co-host Karamo Brown. There is NFL superstar Ray Lewis, former NBA star Lamar Odom, country star Lauren Alaina, former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke, we even have Supremes icon Mary Wilson hitting the dance floor.
We have “The Office” star Kate Flannery, “Kenan & Kel” star Kel Mitchell, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and rounding out the cast is “The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown. I can’t believe I am actually saying this: I’m excited for the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars” which I have not been that eager for in many years America. I mean it’s not like we have Brad Pitt or Denzel Washington hitting the dance floor.
In a surprise twist, the pairings for each celeb will NOT be revealed until premiere night. Interesting, so does this mean the celebs will be randomly dancing with pros before knowing who their actual partner is? I’m leaning towards yes, but then again this would be exciting. The newest season of “Dancing with the Stars” premieres on Monday, September 16 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Let’s get dancing.
