'Dancing With the Stars'

Cast Revealed!

1/22/2007 2:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has exclusively learned the names of several celebs set to do the cha cha cha on the new season of "Dancing With the Stars."

Dancing With the Stars
Country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus (that's "Hannah Montana's" dad for you tweeners), former "90210" star Ian Ziering and Muhammad Ali's daughter Laila Ali will join former *NSYNC member Joey Fatone in trying to wrestle Emmitt Smith's Season 3 crown.

Despite earlier reports, one star who will not be shaking her royal groove thang is the original Fergie, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. Fergie's fellow countrywomen, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, were set to join the cast but have since backed out.

A rep for "Dancing" had no comment, saying "We can't confirm any castings at this point."

"Dancing With the Stars"
premieres March 19.

Evidently you hold some interest in the show or you wouldn't have anything to complain about or are you just one of those people looking for something to whine about? I'm sure that DWTS isn't the only channel you get on your tv so stop the whining and watch something else. Geeze if you could get paid for the complaining and whining you might be rich and famous too!! Is that it? Are you mad because you weren't famous enough to be invited to the show? awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

I just read that Heather Mills is also going to be appearing. Is there anyone else out there that thinks this is really wrong? I believe she is trying to get public sympathy and put Paul in a bad light. Anyone else agree?

The only problem I have with this line-up is Heather Mills. Not because she has one leg (which I can't understand how she can do it - but obviously she thinks she can) but because I belive she might be using this to get publicity since everyone seems to be on Paul's side of this divorce. She's getting nothing but bad publicity and is she going to use this to get sympathy votes?

What a mistake putting Heather Mills on the show. I sure don't want to see her in my living room after she has been putting the screws to Paul McCartney. I grew up with Paul, I trust Paul. She's just another piece of trash.

I fail to see why this show which in the past has been so wonderful and entertaining would lower its standards to include Ms. Mills. She would be playing the role of spoiler to the other contestants - the sympathy vote for
a handicaped person is unfair to say the least. It is also unfair to the dancer/
partner selected for her. I think the show should re-consider this decision and
get her off before it begins.
If she were to get past the first round how could the judges be fair in their apprasial of her abilities.

Oh my gosh, Heather (famous for marrying Paul) Hopefully she will be the first to go or I will not watch. Sorry, but she is a gold digger, and is taking advantage of Paul, she married, had his child, and is now waiting for her pot of gold. Shame on her, she is on Dancing with the Stars only because she married Paul.

Heather Mills?!?!?!?! WTF????
How is SHE a "star"? What the heck was ABC thinking/smoking? They really are scraping the bottom of the barrel when they have to get someone who has never acted (porn films don't count), sang, played sports, etc. She's a nobody.
I will not watch it on account of that b**ch, and urge a boycott.

They should never get a country music star. He tons of votes no matter how bad he dances. Also, he is a Disney star, he is Hannah Montana's dad on Disney. So, I think he will be in there a long time no matter how good or bad he is.

I am thrilled that Apolo Anton Ohno will be on DWTS this season. Not only is he a great dancer but he is a super young man who has presented the best of the US (at the Olympics and other events) when so much of the world has turned its back on us. Apolo will always have my vote!

Is Heather Mills (McCartney) REALLY in your line-up? She is so unpopular with the world, after disgracing Sir Paul I don't think she should be cast. It's like when Monica Lewinsky was scheduled to represent Jenny Craig (till they thought better of it.) Totally inappropriate.
