In case you may have missed ABC's big news, maybe because you have a life or were at work, and your a DWTS fan. Live on ABC TV Wenesday morning exclusively on New York City's Times Square. Dancing with the Stars hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet on "Good Morning America,"revealed the entire 2013 cast confirming the buzz officially that finally unveiled all the new celebrities''. Who're all ready to be expertly choreographed, bedazzled in costume, and be place in heated competition. All on Season 17 of "Dancing With the Stars," along with 12 new celebrities will be hopefully ready to take to the dance floor live in 2 weeks.
The big hoopla besides the fact that the show has to cram it's goods in a 2 hour single night, is that there's actually stars on the show, except for Disney series cast member, Corbin Bleu from High School Musical, for that tween demo that aren't even watch DWTS anyway. Oh yeah one lost cause geeky after school scientist Bill Nye, who is best known as "The TV Science Guy.
The big announcement for the over 50 fans of DWTS is that "Rhoda" 70's CBS TV star comedian actress, Valerie Harper also former "Mary Tyler Moore Show" who's age 74, was named to compete for the mirror ball when Dancing with the Stars returns Sept. 16 on ABC. Valerie Harper announced in March that she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. But because of treatment , according to a recent MRI she is close to remission and shows signs of hope, That's why Ms. Harper's apparently anxious to wear her dancing shoes again, says DWTS Executive Producer Conrad Green.
“She’s loves to dance and is very much about doing special meaningfull things. It’s about getting back to her passion,one thing is certain, her positivity is incredible” She danced on Broadway 50 years ago, and loves to dance. She wants to do, living life to the fullest,” he says.“Seeing this as an opportunity to say to people who have a devastating illness that you can get up there and enjoy life, embrace it, and make the most of it".
Other actual celebs are former "The Voice" social media commentator. Christina Milan, actress Elizabeth Berkley of the 80's "Saved by the Bell" fame and that forgotten, 90's stripper movie "Showgirls"...sadly a precursor the same month to Demi Moore's "Striptease". Elizabeth Berkley's being accused of being a ringer because of her dance arts training, but maybe those added over 40 odd years on Liz since those 80's movies will keep things fair.
Brant Daugherty of "Pretty Little Liars, comedian Bill Engvall, of Blue Collar TV, and "Glee" star Amber Riley. Also TV personality Jack Osbourne, reality star and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi,former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson.
"King of Queens" star Leah Remini, who didn't bother catching a flight on time for The GMA appearance in NYC, and seemed almost silent and Prozacted up. Keeping pro partner Tony Dovolani with her back in LA, to hold her head up during her Skype interview. Will round out the dynamic lineup as they lace up their dancing shoes this season.
6 DWTS dance veterans are back, Cheryl Burke, Mark Ballas, Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani and Val Chmerkovskiy and pro champs Derek Hough and more.

Week 3: Amber Riley of Glee, with Derek Hough, why? In a starved state big Amber will pass out during a lift, crushing to death poor Derek.

Week 9: Leah Remini of King of Queens, with Tony Dovolani...why? Being a creature of habbit she fights with Tony on camera over everything like a TV wife.
Week 10: Christina Milian,with Mark Ballas, why? Brooke Burke knocks The Voice's Christina out, when out of a force of habbit, she steals the mike from Brooke during an interview.
Week 11: Elizabeth Berkley, with Val Chmerkovskiy...why? Elizabeth's totally nude body is accidently bedazzled in gold, instead of spray tanned and Val is so aroused he forgets the dance moves, except for one, that can't be shown on TV.
Week 12: The winner is Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus, why? Valerie didn't moan or glory hound, she took time to learn the weekly routines extremely well! Fans of the Stars will vote for them, probably at the end. Especially if Valerie is a strong dancer, she’s got a strong chance of winning the show.
