One of my favorite reality shows, and I don’t like reality shows, is Dancing with the Stars. I think it is a well planned show. Sometimes I don’t agree with the judges decisions, but who does? I think it’s great entertainment and I love to watch stars that have never danced actually come in and surprise everyone. Well now that the show is entering it’s 800th season, it’s time for the “All-Stars” version complete with one fan voted extra.

I think there has only been one season that I didn’t really watch but I’m not sure how great this all-star season is going to be. We’ve seen all these dancers and although they were all great I’m not sure there will be many surprises.

We know most of them can dance already and are really good. I like to see the show take someone who is totally out of their element, show them some moves and see if they can pull it off. That’s what makes the show fun to watch.

Many of these “all-star’s” are part of the Dancing with the Stars Troupe that travels and performs live in Las-Vegas.  They know the choreography and are now professionals in many ways.

So who is going to be part of the all-star cast?

Kirstie Alley, Pamela Anderson, Helio Castroneves, Joey Fatone, Shawn Johnson, Drew Lachey, Gilles Marini, Kelly Monaco, Apolo Anton Ohno, Bristol Palin, Melissa Rycroft and Emmitt Smith. Then there will be one extra “fan/viewer voted”  favorite chosen from Sabrina Bryan, Carson Kressley or Kyle Massey.

The only question now is who will the pro’s be?  Those won’t be known until August 13th.  I hope that Val Chmerkovskiy will return, after meeting him at our Women’s Night Out event I am a big fan!!

Fans can vote for their favorite 13th dancer on the ABC website.  Voting will continue now through August 24th.  The viewer favorite winner will then announced August 27th.  With the new season airing September 24th.

I’ll be cheering for Helio Catroneves, who are you going to be cheering for?
