Yesterday, we shared a leaked list of the supposed cast of Dancing with the Stars, season 13. Last night, the real, actual, 100% confirmed cast list was revealed and… it’s mostly the same as the leaked list. With a couple of exceptions.
Farrah Fawcett’s ex, Ryan O’Neal, was rumored to be a DWTS hoofer, but in fact, his dancing shoes will stay in the closet. Instead, Queer Eye’s Carson Kressly and soap star/war veteran J.R. Martinez will compete.
The cast is:
Ricki Lake, 42, actress and talk show host
Ron Artest, 31, NBA star
Kristin Cavallari, 24, former star of Laguna Beach and The Hills
Chynna Phillips, 42, Wilson Phillips singer
David Arquette, 39, actor
Carson Kressley, 41, TV personality and style expert
Nancy Grace, 51, HLN host and legal commentator
J.R. Martinez, 28, Army vet and All My Children star
Hope Solo, U.S. soccer player
Rob Kardashian, 24, Keeping Up With the Kardashians star
Elisabetta Canalis, 32, Italian actress and George Clooney’s ex
Chaz Bono, 42, author and star of Becoming Chaz, son of Cher and Sonny Bono
Historically, athletes usually have a natural leg up (pun intended) on the competition, but somehow we can’t see Ron Artest taking that mirror ball trophy home. Maybe Hope Solo will win. She’s already got the fancy footwork down!
