My guilty summer pleasure, "Bachelor Pad" and all it's trashy goodness, not to be confused with the lame and predictable "Bachelor" or "Bachelorette", was interrupted for a LIVE announcement of this season's cast of "Dancing with the Stars" (DWTS). First of all, LIVE. Really!?! This announcement had to be LIVE? Reading the names on GMA wouldn't have sufficed. Did America really need to know right now? Secondly, and most importantly, Elisabetta Canalis. Really!?! For all of you unfamiliar with the name, and why would you be familiar, unless of course said person were sleeping with your dream husband. OK, I guess I've revealed my bias, but anyway, despite the fact that Elisabetta's sole claim to fame is being George Clooney's recently dumped girlfriend (yup, past tense, she's the ex, not even the current girlfriend), she is in fact one of the "stars" competing for the mirrorball trophy this season.
This season's remaining cast members are Chaz Bono, Nancy Grace, Ricki Lake, Rob Kardashian, David Arquette, Ron Artest, Kristin Cavallari, J.R. Martinez, Hope Solo, Chyna Phillips, and Carson Kressley.
Oh well, I guess stardom like beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
