'Dancing with the Stars'

3 Celeb Contestants REVEALED

Including Heather Locklear's Ex

2/24/2012 3:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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 tired show has run its course. It is now just the last stop for washed-up hasbeens and irritating people in the news.

Why doesn't HARVEY LEVIN do the show himself? I'd like to see him on the dance floor!

shepard has been sucking up to this show for a long time to get on. But I think they should get soap opera rivals pretend or in real life to dance against each other. So many of the age range that watch dwts are soap fans as well and now that they are canceling all the soaps they should be able to get them.

This is still on the air, they will put any thing on if they can make a dime. Who is going to be the d listers this year. Then the dancers think they are big stars. I quit watching this crap when they decided to have punk chris brown on, right after he beat on Rhinana. So much crap on tv now days.

Melissa Gilbert is a HUGE btch in real life. This might be interesting, but so far, this cast sounds like one big fail
How do you know Melissa is a HUGE btch? Do you know her or met her?

I can't see Sherri taking it seriously and best of luck to the costume designers!!
