Title: Dancing With The Stars - but who are they?
Post by: Dizzydeni on February 10, 2009, 08:54:47 AM
The line up is out for March, and I would like to know who the hell these people are, hehe!

Belinda Carlisle
Chuck Wicks
David Alan Grier
Denise Richards
Gilles Marini
Jewel Kilcher
LawrenceTaylor
LilKim
Nancy Odell
Shawn Johnson
Steve Wozniak
Ty Murray

Aside from Lawrence Taylor (NY Giants) I could care less about this season.  This will be the first time that if I miss a show, I miss nothing.

I have never been a Dancing With the Stars fan and this season doesn't look like it is going to make me one.  Out of those 12 names I recognize 2 maybe 3 of them. Good luck to the contestants but I won't be watching.

Belinda Carlisle (Lead singer of the Go-Gos)
Chuck Wicks (???)
David Alan Grier  (comedian/actor)
Denise Richards  (actress, Charlie Sheen's ex-wife)
Gilles Marini  (???)
Jewel Kilcher  (Singer)
LawrenceTaylor  (Football player, NY Giants)
LilKim  (Hip-hop singer)
Nancy Odell  (???)
Shawn Johnson  (Olympic gymnist)
Steve Wozniak  (Co-founder of Apple Computers)
Ty Murray  (???)

I couldn't care less to tell you the truth. Which is just fine as I allready have too many shows to watch.

Totally not interested this season.  Although, I don't think I watched last one either (with Chloris Leachman).  If I have another show on during the same timeslot, which I do sometimes (Heroes) I don't watch DWTS.  The last season I watched was the one with Kristi Yamaguchi and Adam Carolla.  That was a good group of people. 

and to answer the ??? in your post Kris...Gilles Marini was apparently in the SATC movie (as Carrie's neighbor?  I've never seen it, just heard that is who he is).  Nancy O'Dell is a host of a hollywood insider type show (think Entertainment Tonight type show).  Chuck Wicks...he is a country singer.  Ty Murray is Jewel's husband and a rodeo athelete.

Gilles Marini exploded onto the scene as Dante, the Casanova living in the beach house next door to Kim Cattrall's Samantha in the Sex and the City movie, a role which has earned him international recognition. Born and raised in France, Gilles joined the French army and was stationed in Paris, where he acted as a fireman for the famous Brigade des Sapeurs Pompiers de Paris. After fulfilling his military duties, Gilles decided to go to the United States to learn English while working as a model. Gilles, who has appeared in series such as Ugly Betty, Dirty Sexy Money, and Criminal Minds, will next be seen as Vanessa Redgrave's husband on FX's Nip/Tuck. Gilles currently resides in California with his wife Carole, son Georges, and daughter Juliana.

The lineup this season is not great but I will still be watching.  It's a great mindless show to watch on the treadmill because of the music and the shape of the dancers.  Anything that keeps me on longer helps!

Update: According to the LA Times, Pro Julianne Hough is coming back (her boyfriend is in the cast) also joining the lineup of Pros this season–Chelsie Hightower from So You Think You Can Dance.

For being on another network, they sure are showing interest in SYTYCD dancers.

Patty which of the mean is Julianna's boyfriend?  Is it the country singer, Chuck Wicks??  I am not happy with the cast, but I will probably watch it anyway.

I heard Julianna's boyfriend was going to be partnered with Julianna. I don't remember his name but how fair is that?

I am not at all impressed with this line up. I know who Lawrence Taylor is and I've heard of Nancy ODell but I have no idea who any of the other people are.
I just hope they can dance.
I'll try watching it but I find it's not as exciting when you're watching a bunch of strangers.

Nancy O'Dell is a host of EXTRA, I think. Sheryl, yes Julianne will be paired with her real boyfriend. Also Max and Katerina Smiroff (spg) are engaged and they will be competing. That should be interesting to watch. I can't stand Denise Ricards and the only one I really think will be funny is David Allen Grier, I like him.

Did they give out the paring yet?  I would love to see what loser Max is dancing with this year.

I don't think I care enough to watch it this season.

I heard that Tony D. is dancing with Nancy O'Dell.

Chuck Wicks is Juliann's boyfriend and they will be partnered together. Also Jewell and her husband will be dancing, not together.

I found the parirings at MJ's Blog site...Her words, not mine...

The list of celebrities dancing in the new season of Dancing of the Stars was revealed on Sunday. Now we know who their pro partners will be:

Ty Murray will be dancing with Chelsie Hightower and will be going head-to-head with his wife Jewel and her partner Dmitry Chaplin. Newly engaged professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy will dance with actress Denise Richards and his fiancé Karina Smirnoff is paired with Steve Wozniak of Apple. Also, country singer Chuck Wicks teams up with girlfriend and two-time “Dancing with the Stars” champ Julianne Hough.

Other dancing couples include: Belinda Carlisle and Jonathan Roberts; David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson; Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas; Lil’ Kim and Derek Hough; Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer; Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska; Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke.

Chelsie Hightower, is a new pro–fresh off last season’s So You Think You Can Dance.  Lacey Schwimmer and Steve-O?  I’m guessing Lacey isn’t counting on lasting very long.  Chuck Weiss pairing up with his girlfriend Julianne Hough seems a little unfair…don’t you think?

I'm just glad that Max is back this year.  It ought to be interesting now that he's engaged to Karina.  I don't think her partner will go bery far, I just have that feeling.

I just read that Nancy O'Dell and Jewell are both out due to injuries. O'Dell will need surgery. Per TMZ
No word yet as to who they will replace them with.  :insanity
