'Dancing with the Stars'

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.

I would love to see some of my stars on Days of our Lives
dance such as Beau, Hope and Maggie. they are such good actors and actresses, I feel they need to be known to the public that don't know them or watch the show. even Stephano would be great. Thanks Fern

I thought ABC employees couldnot participate. Did the rules change? Sherri Shepherd is on the "VIEW".

Well I think there is a little sneaky thing going on behind closed doors.Some where in my heart I thought Sherry Shepard was being way to postive about things.If you back and listen to a couple of her conversations to the media look into her eyes and you can see the distrust. Why do people have to always think they need to up everyone. Come on Sherry why do you have to spoil things for everyone.This is just for plain entertainment.Why can't you just be real like the others.Your mouth is always going and you look so guilty and came out with a bang that looked like I' been dancing for weeks. I will not be voting for you at all.You are guilting of cheating.People look at her and how she took over many conversations to the media. Being the teacher that I am I can tell when someone is lying and or cheating.How disappointing you are and the season hasn't even begun.Shame on you for thinking you had to cheat. What kind of message are you sending to your son and husband?There will no votes from me this season. Sorry,I don't for cheaters.
