Dancing With The Stars Season 13 Cast Revealed: Nancy Grace, Hope Solo, Carson Kressley & More!

August 29, 2011

Can you believe this is the 13th season of Dancing With The Stars? Tonight, the cast was revealed for the popular dancing reality show, and this is one of the better groups I’ve seen in a long time! I’m excited, are you?

DWTS Season 13 Cast

Tom Bergeron and the newly married Brooke Burke announced this season’s cast, will they be ready come September 19th when the show debuts? Here is the complete cast list:

J.R. Martinez – Who is this guy, you ask? You probably don’t know who he is unless you watch ABC’s All My Children, like me! Heh heh. Martinez, a real life Army veteran, was cast as Brot Monroe in 2008, whose character was deployed to Iraq and injured while in battle. He suffered burns on his body (as did Martinez in real life) but led his girlfriend, Taylor (played by the amazing Beth Ehlers) to believe that he was dead. Ahh, the world of soaps! In addition to his role on All My Children, he travels the U.S. as a motivational speaker. Okay, right off the bat, he is one of my favorites.

Nancy Grace – Wowee. I don’t know quite what to expect from the former prosecutor turned TV host on the dance floor. Graceful maybe? Ha ha ha. I’m wondering if she’ll be arguing with the judges throughout the season.

Ricki Lake – The talk show host/actress is one of my favorite celebrities, so I will be rooting for her as well. I think she’ll do well…remember Hairspray?

Ron Artest – The Los Angeles Lakers player can thank the lockout for being cast… Nice footwork on the basketball floor, but on the dance floor?

Carson Kressley – Awww, I love me some Carson Kressley! No doubt Mr. Style himself will be looking absolutely fab during the competition, yes?

David Arquette – I think the funnyman may be a surprise hit. He said it himself, “I love to dance and I love to entertain, and there’s no place better to do that than this show.” Might we see his ex, Courtney Cox in the audience cheering him on?

Elisabetta Canalis – Hello…the gorgeous Italian ex of George Clooney will no doubt sizzle on the dance floor. She’ll fill out those skimpy outfits with no problem. Hot hot hot! But will her dancing fizzle?

Chaz Bono – The son of Sonny and Cher and transgender activist will no doubt have a following. How do you think he’ll do?

Kristin Cavallari – The newly single Laguna Beach star will no longer be planning a wedding but instead puttin’ on her dancing shoes. She tweeted, “I can finally confirm…I’m on Dancing With The Stars this season!!! Already having so much fun.”

Rob Kardashian – Ahh, another Kardashian to compete on DWTS. Big sister Kim appeared on Season 7. Will Rob do better?

Chynna Phillips – You can’t think of Wilson Phillips without thinking about memories from 90’s. Will Alec Baldwin make an appearance in the audience to lend support to his sister in law?

Hope Solo – How do you think this beautiful soccer player will do? She tweeted this evening, “Thx everyone 4 your support, I’m excited for this challenge but most importantly to try and raise awareness 4 women’s soccer.”

So readers, do you have any favorites? Who is your guess to take home the coveted disco ball trophy?
