This morning, ABC’S GOOD MORNING AMERICA (Holy Network Sinergy Batman!) announced the ‘Stars’ that would be performing in DANCING WITH THE STARS 3, premiering September 12 at 8pm.
The list was made up of the usual bunch of no-name celebrities with a few nostalgic choices thrown into the mix. While I wasn’t surprised to see Joe (don’t call me ‘Joey’) Lawrence and Emmitt (obligatory sports star) Smith on the list, a few of the names did indeed surprise me.
MARIO LOPEZ: Way to throw away any new respectability gained from your appearance on the upcoming fourth season of NIP/TUCK. Although, on the plus side, any SAVED BY THE BELL star worth his share of HOT SUNDAE knows what an amazing dancer AC SLATER was!
VIVICA A. FOX: Has the star of some pretty respectable films (KILL BILL, ID4) and tv shows (ALIAS) really sunk so low? I wasn’t aware FOX’s career was on life support?
TUCKER CARLSON: Huh?
MONIQUE COLEMAN: Who on earth did she play in HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. Do I have to pause the DVD and replay the movie frame by frame to find out? A walk-on in HSM does not a ‘STAR’ make!
