The cast of Dancing With the Stars Season 15 will be revealed tomorrow (Friday, July 27), but the New York Daily News claims to know at least 10 of the returning All-Stars. (Rumor has it 11 celebs will be revealed tomorrow with fans having to vote for the final 12th contestant out of three options.)
According to the Daily News, the All-Stars cast will include Drew Lachey (Season 2 winner), Donny Osmond (Season 9 winner), Mel B (Season 5 runner-up), Mario Lopez (Season 3 runner-up), Joey Fatone (Season 4 runner-up), Kyle Massey (Season 11 runner-up), Gilles Marini (Season 8 runner-up), Pamela Anderson (Season 10), Stacy Keibler (Season 2), and Maria Menounos (Season 14).
These stars previous pro partners were, respectively, Cheryl Burke, Kym Johnson, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff, Kym, Lacey Schwimmer, Cheryl, Damian Whitewood, Tony Dovolani, and Derek Hough.
Obviously Kym and Cheryl can't dance with both of their past partners, so if this list is close to accurate that would leave the door open for, say, Chelsie Hightower, Peta Murgatroyd, or Anna Trebunskaya to step in — assuming one of Anna's own partners doesn't also end up on the list. (Evan Lysacek, where are you?!)
Damian danced with Pamela on Season 10 but he hasn't been on the U.S. version of DWTS since then. So maybe one of the newer pros, like Tristan MacManus or Val Chmerkovskiy, would dance with Pamela.
Even if this list is dead on, we’re still probably missing at least one name, plus the options we have to vote for. According to Entertainment Weekly, Carson Kressley may be presented as one of the voting options.
We’ll find out tomorrow if any of these rumors are true. But this cast sounds pretty decent so far, no?
Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
