'Dancing With the Stars' Season 13 Cast Includes Kristen Cavallari and David Arquette
Well, it looks like when Snooki said that the rumors weren't true and she wouldn't be joining "Dancing with the Stars," she was telling the truth. The official season 13 cast has been announced, and the pint-sized guidette isn't on the list.
But we were right on some of the other calls we reported, including the rumors that Ron Artest and Rob Kardashian would be joining. Sure enough, the LA Laker (whose wife Kimsha is on "Basketball Wives") and the brother of Kim, Khloe and Kumquat will be toe-tapping on the boards.
The rest of the men include "Scream" star and sometimes Coutrney Cox beau David Arquette, "Queer Eye" alum Carson Kressley, "All My Children" star and Iraq war veteran J.R. Martinez, and Chaz Bono, the child of Sonny and Cher who made headlines for his transgender change from female to male.
On the women's side, "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills" alum Kristin Cavallari is one of the bigger names, along with TV host Ricki Lake and anchorwoman Nancy Grace, who covered the Casey Anthony case very closely. They will also be joined by Chynna Phillips, soccer player Hope Solo (I hope she's related to Han) and George Clooney's ex Elisabetta Canalis.
It's perhaps not the most star-studded lineup.
In fact, you might consider it to be a pretty lame collection of contestants. But there are definitely some interesting personalities here: Martinez has an incredible backstory, as he struck a land mine in Iraq and was trapped in his Humvee. He suffered severe burns that have taken three years and 32 surgeries to repair.
And of course Bono's story is a fascinating one as well, having gone through such a huge life change.
You'll be able to catch the all-new lineup in the season 13 premiere, which airs on September 19th at 8pm.
