As the current season of "The Bachelor" nears its end, ABC announced the celebrity lineup for the new season of "Dancing With the Stars," which launches with a two-hou preem March 21. Sugarray

Here who's set to participate: Kirstie Alley, Hines Ward, Chris Jericho, Wendy Williams, Ralph Macchio, Romeo, Mike Catherwood, Sugar Ray Leonard, Kendra Wilkinson and Chelsea Kane.

I'm not going to make judgments on the reason each member of this eclectic group have decided to test their hoofing skills with the entire country watching, but the only name that makes me sad here is ex-boxing champ Leonard. I'll always remember him for his remarkable bouts with the likes of Thomas Hearns and Marvelous Marvin Hagler, not what he does on a primetime reality show.
