ABC renames it ‘Dancing With the Train-Wreck Stars’

Dancing-with-the-stars-logo
Having slurped a taste of ratings success with reality/tabloid star Kate Gosselin last time out, ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” is going whole-hog with its cheesiest (and most obnoxious) cast yet.

And by the way, I think that’s a good thing. I’m kind of appalled at myself for saying this, but I’m looking forward to a train-wreck cast that includes Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, David Hasselhoff and Bristol Palin.

Seriously, this cast just drips tabloidy goodness. And these are the kind of folks we wanna see falling on their asses and making giant fools of themselves on national TV. (And seriously, for murdering good music taste in the late 1980s/early 1990s, Michael Bolton has got it coming.) WELL DONE, ABC.

The full lineup: Michael Bolton, Brandy, Margaret Cho, Rick Fox, Jennifer Grey, David Hasselhoff, Florence Henderson, Kyle Massey, Bristol Palin, Audrina Patridge, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Kurt Warner.
