Sarah Palin may have blown off the Dancing with the Stars Season 11 premiere, but plenty of other people showed up. In addition to the usual relatives of cast members, several members of the DWTS family were in the audience, in addition to some other bold-faced names.
We spotted Season 10 runner-up Evan Lysacek and his good friend, designer Vera Wang, along with fellow Season 10 dancers Niecy Nash, Jake Pavelka (sitting next to his new girlfriend Heather?), Aiden Turner, and Buzz Aldrin with his wife Lois.
We also spotted Chelsie Hightower's Season 9 partner Louie Vito, Season 1 runner-up John O'Hurley, Rick Fox's girlfriend, actress Eliza Dushku, David Hasselhoff's daughter/actress Hayley Hasselhoff, and the biggest name in the room was probably actress Jamie Lee Curtis,who turned the show down.
On Tuesday's DWTS Results Show, ABC plugged its new show Better with You by featuring stars JoAnna Garcia and Jennifer Finnigan.
