'Dancing with the Stars'

3 Celeb Contestants REVEALED

Including Heather Locklear's Ex

TMZ has learned the secret identities of THREE new celebrity contestants on the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars" -- most interesting ... Heather Locklear's ex and "Melrose Place" actor Jack Wagner.   You'll recall Jack and Heather got into an epic fight in December that triggered a 911 call.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ, Sherri Shepherd from "The View" will also be competing in the upcoming season ... which kicks off next month.

As for the third -- that would be "Little House on the Prairie" star Melissa Gilbert, who was rumored to be on last season ... but that deal fell through.

We shot Melissa on her way into practice today at an L.A. dance studio (below) -- she was pretty tight-lipped.

This cast has GOT to be better than last season's. TOTALLY love Melissa Gilbert!!!! Can't stand Sherry Shepard. I know who I want to be voted off already. Got to get my email addresses already then and squeeze her out. Excited to see who else is on the cast list.
I hope to high heaven that there is not going to be a cast overloaded with gays and IT's.

They should all be ashamed to be associated with the show of a racist Ompa Lompa

What will the View do without Sherri? Maybe they will be taken off the air, one can only hope.

Melissa Gilbert is a HUGE btch in real life. This might be interesting, but so far, this cast sounds like one big fail.
