It's that time of year again.
Dancing with the Stars has unveiled the cast for its twelfth season, and the reaction?
DWTS has become known for its ability to give us a diverse line-up of celebrities--albeit from the D-List.
This season it looks like even the D-List refused to return their calls.
Oh sure, we still have the playmate (Kendra Wilkinson), the sports legend (Sugar Ray Leonard), the 80's child star (Ralph Macchio), and the fallen actor/actress (Kirstie Alley), but the rest of the group doesn't seem poised to guarantee big ratings.
A random dj, a model, and Romeo?
Where's the octogenarian a la Florence Henderson? Where's the tabloid star a la Bristol Palin or Kate Gosselin? Where are the people I'm supposed to root for???
(Okay, maybe I'm rooting for Ralph Macchio, but don't tell anyone.)
The producers of DWTS seem to forget that there's no assurance that the most interesting contestants will stay on the show very long. They learned that the hard way when David Hasselhoff (or, tv gold) was kicked off early last season.
Let's hope Kirstie Alley knows how to cha cha.
