Dancing With the Stars 2013: Lisa Vanderpump, Andy Dick, D.L. Hughley Join Cast: Report
The Dancing With the Stars Season 16 rumors are coming fast and furious now, since we have less than 24 hours to wait to hear the official cast list. RadarOnline has a new report echoing some of the cast members we've heard before, including American Idol's Kellie Pickler, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, boxer Victor Ortiz, and Bachelor Sean Lowe. (NFL star Jacoby Jones has already been confirmed by ABC.) But they added some names we hadn't heard yet, including Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsstar Lisa Vanderpump (mother of Giggy The Pom!) and two comedians, Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley. Comedians have a history of not dancing well on DWTS, so this would fit with The Powers That Be's hint about casting some "bad" dancers. Then again, they also have an Olympian on the list so who knows what the casting theory is. According to @DWTSGossip, Andy may be paired with a new pro (meaning Sharna Burgess or Lindsay Arnold) with Lisa getting the other new pro, Gleb Savchenko.
What do you think about these new names? Take them with a grain of salt at this point, but — if true — would they make you encouraged or discouraged about the spring 2013 season?
