Season 9 Cast Revealed! Anyone shocked???
Aug 17 2009, 5:25 AM EDT | Post edited: Aug 17 2009, 5:25 AM EDT
So many people were claiming Lou Ferrigno & Vera Wang would be on it for sure, but they're not!

Anyone like the cast? Reply with your opinion!

Yeah, there were several surprises. I have to be honest that about 1/3 of the "stars" on the list I have never heard of. Wasn't Danny Gokey supposed to be a strong possibility as well? And what is with a Former House Majority Leader?????? Since I don't know alot of the stars, I'll have to wait to see how they do dancing to give my full opinion.

This is the only show in the world that you would see an Osmond (God forbid) and an Osborne on the same show. lol

What do you think of the cast BrandonE?

Really interesting how Lou Ferrigno and Vera Wang ended up not happening. They seemed like sure things.

Tom DeLay.... Just, wow. Other than that, it didn't seem too shocking, even though a lot of the names hadn't come up before.

How about Melissa Joan Hart? She'd been lobbying to get onto the show for years, then said in an interview this year that she didn't want to be on anymore. Throwing everyone off the scent, I guess.

It's going to be an exciting season! And 4 new dances are going to be used!

Tom said that Mya did some dancing in her music videos, so maybe that gives her an advantage, same with Aaron Carter, so I think those 2 are going to be the ones to watch. Still interesting though.

I had not realized that she had wanted to be on the show before, but I am looking forward to seeing her dance.

I am totally shocked by Tom Delay. Remember where I am living - Texas! He is out of the Senate because of changing voting borders, so he would win every 6 years. He cheated to do that. He is not a popular man in Texas. Personally I figure he will cheat again. I can't stand him. He is as low as Chaney maybe lower. He is the embarrassment of Texas. 1  out of 1 found this valuable.

6. The Truth about Tom DeLay with a twist!
Aug 17 2009, 9:54 PM EDT | Post edited: Aug 17 2009, 9:54 PM EDT
Some may be surprised that Tom DeLay will be doing the two-step this season on Dancing with the Stars. Not us. DeLay has demonstrated quite a bit of fancy footwork over the years avoiding jail time. Here are some of the DeLay’s political moves that Dancing With the Stars audiences may not be familiar with:

Cha Cha Cha Ching – DeLay laundered at least $190,000 in corporate funds through the Republican National Committee to spend on Texas Republican House cronies like State Rep. Dwayne Bohac (R-138). (Source: Austin American-Statesman, September 1, 2008)

Tango and Cash – DeLay paid his wife Christine and daughter Dani Ferro $350,000 from his various campaign accounts.(Source: The Houston Chronicle, May 10, 2007)

Hammer Hustle – DeLay convinced imprisoned lobbyist Jack Abramoff to pay for a golf trip to Europe. (Source: Fort Worth Star-Telegram, April 26, 2007)

Backroom Jitterbug – DeLay convened Energy Lobbyists to help write energy legislation that “would allow the costs of deregulation of electricity to be passed on to their customers.” In exchange, DeLay received tens of thousands of dollars in donations from the lobbyists.(Source: Texas Monthly, May 2006)

Redistricting Rumba – DeLay forced through a mid-decade Texas congressional redistricting plan that robbed our state of nearly 100 years of seniority and three powerful committee chairmanships, leaving Texas with arguably the weakest large state Congressional delegation in the country.(Source: Austin American-Statesman June 28, 2007)

Beltway Boogie – After he was indicted and faced the possibility of losing re-election in a safe Republican seat, DeLay cowardly abandoned his constituents and fled the State of Texas for the suburbs of Washington, D.C. (Source: Fort Worth Star-Telegram, August 20, 2006)

The great State of Texas has survived Tom DeLay and will thrive over the long-term. For DeLay himself, it’s not so certain.

Wow Marti, that's a lot!


Does anyone think Genya Mazo will appear as a pro this season? Maybe some brotherly competition against him and Alec?

OMG First_Marti... how could they have picked this guy????? This is one vote he will never get.

Brandon, do you think that Genya would be allowed on the show after he lost the pro competition? But maybe there might be a possibility since they have to come up with 16 professionals. I think it would be fun to see some brotherly competition.

Possibly. They've got tons of pro competition, so it is a chance. Do you find this valuable?

It would be fun to watch. I bet he does show up because there are so many dancers. (excluding Tom DeLay - we really hate him down here!) Maybe Clores Leachman will come back and be his instructor and partner. I am sure she would trip him several times.

"Maks's brother is a pro also, I wonder if he will be one of the new professional dancers."
When the stars were announced and the interviewers talked about Tom's show, he said actually Maksim Chenovas (can't spell it without looking it up) show. Did anyone hear that. I am beginning to think that he and Tony pay for the show. I know that Alec started it and he might still be involved. But I thought it was an interesting comment.

In other words more appropriate - it sounded like Maks produces the show, and bank rolls it. Do you find this valuable?

so i found out alec got partnered with natalie and i'm really glad for him, especially because i was afraid he would get partnered with another model. since natalie's an olympic athlete, i think they'll be staying for awhile. as for edyta, i'm so disappointed she got partnered with ashley because she's never really gotten a younger guy (than her), and it's not like ashley has a fan base. i was hoping she'd get aaron carter.

k, continuing my thoughts, this sounds odd, but before the celebrities were announced, i had a feeling alec would get partnered with a swimmer. isn't that so weird?

as for cheryl, poor thing. gilles was so amazing last season, and now she's got some "criminal". funny how dmitry's gotten another singer (he was originally supposed to dance with jewel).

what other dancers do you think we'll return? ashly delgrosso (i know she just gave birth not too long ago but she said something in an earlier article about wanting to lose the baby fat, kind of like how tia carrere did)? and is it true jesse de soto is coming back?

my best wishes to tony, chelsie, and jonathan for their partners. mark and derek already won, let's have a different pro emerge victorious!

Now I've been thinking about who will go far, and I think Louie Vito will do pretty good...

Chelsie is an amzing professional, look how good she made Ty Murray! None of us thought he would last that long, and he did! Now that she's got Louie Vito, they just might do better. He's younger, so he has the ability to move (lol), and he's an athlete!
