DWTS Season 13 cast Announced
Nancy Grace - The former prosecutor has
made a name for herself as the host of her own
talk show on HLN. Grace covers the world of
current affairs, in a no-nonsense, take-no-
prisoners approach that often draws criticism
for her snap judgment and pointed opinions.
Ricki Lake - Longtime fans will always
remember Lake from her big-screen debut as
Tracy Turnblad in the 1988 movie "Hairspray."
Later in life, Lake made a name for herself with
her daytime talk show, which ended it's 11-year
run in 2004 but is reportedly returning to TV in
Chynna Phillips- Phillips has long been
in the public eye and is perhaps best known as
being part of popular '90s trio Wilson Phillips.
The daughter of the Mamas & the Papas' band
members John and Michelle Phillips has dabbled
in singing and acting over the years and has been
married to Billy Baldwin (brother to Alec and
Stephen) since 1995.
Hope Solo- Solo joins the ranks of many
professional athletes-turned-dancers on "DWTS."
The pro soccer star helped the U.S. Women's team
bring home the gold medal at the '08 summer
Olympics and is currently a goalkeeper for the
Magic Jack soccer club.
Kristin Cavallari- The MTV star stirred up
trouble first on "Laguna Beach" and then took
over for Lauren Conrad on the final season of
"The Hills." The newly single Cavallari will surely
take full advantage of the show's skimpy costumes
and no doubt gain the attention of a new beau.
Elisabetta Canalis - Canalis is best known
for her highly publicized 2 yr romance with one
of America's favorite "Sexiest Men Alive," George
Clooney. Since their split last summer, the Italian
beauty has appeared in film and TV shows and
hosted the Italian version of "Total Request Live,"
as well as the singing contest Sanremo Music
Rob Kardashian- "Keeping Up With the
Kardashians" might shine the brightest spotlight
on the Kardashian sisters, but little brother Rob
is often there as the voice of reason amid the
family drama. The reality star could have a leg
up on the competition, getting tips from sister
Kim, who competed on season seven, or maybe
Sabrina Bryan, the Cheetah Girls bandmate of
Rob's ex Adrienne Bailon, who competed on
season five. Or maybe he should just keep it
in the family.
Chaz Bono- Bono is the only child of
superstars Cher and the late Sonny Bono.
Despite living in the shadow of famous parents,
Chaz, who was born Chastity, is a writer, actor
and musician, and is well-known in the LGBT
community for being a transgender advocate.
David Arquette - While Arquette is
known for memorable roles in film and
television, particularly as dopey policeman
Dewey Cox in the "Scream" franchise, the
wrestler made headlines last year when he
and Courteney Cox, his wife of nearly 11 yrs,
announced their separation. Arquette checked
himself into rehab for issues with alcohol. He is
in recovery and has reportedly been sober since.
Ron Artest - Or should we say Metta
World Peace? The outspoken Lakers player
and rapper, who is currently trying to change
his name to that Ochocinco-esque alias, made
headlines years ago for an on-court brawl but
is now known as a quirkily lovable personality.
We'll see what antics he has up his sleeve on
the dance floor.
J.R. Martinez - This surefire fan favorite
is an actor, motivational speaker and retired
soldier who suffered burns over 40 percent of
his body when his Humvee hit a landmine in Iraq.
Martinez turned the harrowing experience into an
inspirational tale for other burn victims and now
has a role on ABC's "All My Children."
Carson Kressley - This fashion guru got
his celebrity start as one of the "Fab Five" on
Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy."
Kressley has an eye for how to make people
look good and frequently appears on TV talk
shows to offer his expert opinions on fashion.
Kressley currently hosts his own show "Carson
Nation" on Oprah Winfrey's OWN.
