Dancing With the Stars Cast Includes Bristol, the Situation, and the Hoff


The cast for the eleventh season of Dancing With the Stars was officially announced tonight, and the newest group of "celebrities” hoping to score two-page People magazine spreads and precious minutes of Access Hollywood airtime includes the typical mix of reality-TV vets, athletes, and former television/movie stars, many of whom we learned about last week. The ladies: "The Boy Is Mine" crooner Brandy, Dirty Dancing’s Jennifer Grey, comedian Margaret Cho, The Hills vixen Audrina Patridge, The Brady Bunch's Florence Henderson, and the incomparable Bristol Palin. Their male competitors: singer Michael Bolton, recently roasted David Hasselhoff, former NBA star Rick Fox, former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner, 19-year-old Disney Channel star Kyle Massey, and multi-millionaire (and early favorite?) the Situation.
