Dance Fever!

Visions of bronzed skin, sequins, disco balls, and the Paso Doble whirl in my head! The countdown starts to the premiere of DWTS Season 7! ABC officially announced the list of celebs, so here's my comments on this season's contestants:

Lance Bass: Although many might think he's at a distinct advantage in the contest what with all his experience with choreographed dancing with *NSYNC, I happen to know from my "Bye Bye Bye" days that Lance was definitely the weakest dancer, despite the fact that he turned out to be gay.

Toni Braxton: I always get her mixed up with Vivica A. Fox, who has actually already been on DWTS, so I can't really give any insight here. She has been on Broadway, which indicates an inclination for dancing.

Brooke Burke: Her career is basically based on looking hot in mini-skirts and being able to read a teleprompter--any success from her would be a surprise. Although she is paired with Derek Hough, a cutie-patootie with a bit of an attitude with the judges--love him!

Rocco DiSpirito: A chef...hmmm, again, would be a shocker if he has performing or dance skills. Paired with diva Karina Smirnoff.

Maurice Greene: World's Fastest Man with two-time winner Cheryl Burke--could be great like Emmitt Smith or Jason Taylor, could be terrible like Clyde Drexler!

Kim Kardashian: I'm doubting discipline ranks very highly on this dark-haired Paris Hilton's list, so I'm gonna give her an early-ouster predictor, even though she's paired with last year's winner (along with Kristi Yamaguchi--Whoo!), Mark Ballas.

Cloris Leachman: I'm predicting plenty of sassy spunk from this seasoned lady--Did you guys see her in Spanglish? Hilarious! PLUS, she's paired with Mark's daddio, series newcomer Corky Ballas! Corky and Cloris! Love it!

Cody Linley: You don't know that name, and you may or may not have heard of his under-the-radar, but very subtle-humored show, Hannah Montana. He's 18, and Julianne Hough, always touted as being the youngest pro on the show, will now be the younger member of her team for the first time on the show.

Susan Lucci: Erica Kane on the dance floor! Sounds like drama. She has apparently done cabarets across the country, according to the ABC website--all I gotta say about that is...yikes. Tony Dovolani is her partner.

Misty May-Treanor: Ohhhhhhh Maksim! For his comeback season, he's paired with a high-level female athlete! I'm hoping this goes more Laila Ali than Monica Selles.

Okay, I'm getting tired, and I've never even heard of the other three guys: TV star Ted McGinley, comedian Jeffrey Ross, and pro football player Warren Sapp.

I seriously doubt anyone is reading this far, except for maybe my sister, who is almost as hardcore as me about DWTS. Hi, Sis! Until Sept. 22!

Hey Kim!
I officially read all the way to the bottom! Sounds like a good year of Dancing with the Stars! I might actually try to watch it this year. I'll be anxious to see how Cody Linley turns out. He's a bit clumsy on TV. LOL
