It’s that time of year ballroom dancing fans for the return of the often hilarious, sometimes exhilirating ABC reality-competition “Dancing with the Stars” on March 19 at 8 p.m. This year’s cast might prove to be off the charts when it comes to unintentional comedy. If you look hard enough you might already see the shiny chunks of gold litered throughout the dance floor.
If you’re taking odds on a winner the early favorites would have to be either boxer Laila Ali, daughter of Mr. “Float like a butterfly, Sting like a Bee” himself, Muhammed Ali, or NBA Hall-of-Famer Clyde “The Glide” Drexler. Why are they the early favorites? Well based upon how ex-athletes Jerry Rice and Emmett Smith did the previous two seasons the early favorites have to be the two athletes in the cast.
The darkhorse could be N’Sync-er Joey Fatone. As for comedy, well, does it get any better than having Paul McCartney’s ex-wife Heather Mills busting a move? Yes, the animal rights and land mine activist (don’t forget fortune stealing activist) has a fake leg. I’m hoping at some point it falls off while doing the Cha-Cha-Cha or a seductive Tango.
Scene: The music stops, the audience doesn’t know how to react. Heather Mills is hobling around trying to pick up her leg as her dance partner continues like nothing happened. Heather Mills ladies and gentleman! The first “Dancing with the Stars” competitor with one leg!
Olympian Apolo Anoton Ono, Steve Sanders, er, I mean, Ian Ziering, Billy Ray Cyrus, Leeza Gibbons and Vincet “Big Pussy” Pastore, and model Paulina Porizkova, and Miss USA 2004 Shandi Finnessey round out the cast.
Wait for it. Wait for it.
Welcome to 90210 bitch!
