"Dancing With the Stars" announced its new celebrity line-up on Monday, with some of television’s best-known names from classic shows of the 1970s and 1980s signing up, according to an announcement from ABC Entertainment.
Florence Henderson, who played Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch" during its run from 1969-1974, will be showing off her dancing skills, while David Hasselhoff of "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch" fame will also be competing on the show. The remaining 10 contestants are best-selling recording artists Michael Bolton and Brandy; comedian Margaret Cho; former L.A. Lakers forward Rick Fox; "Dirty Dancing" star Jennifer Grey; "Cory in the House" star Kyle Massey; Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin; "The Hills" star Audrina Patridge; "Jersey Shore" cast member Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino; and former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner, the network says.
According to the New York Times, Bristol Palin was asked during a question-and-answer session following the release of ABC’s announcement what her mother thinks about her joining the show.
“She’s excited for me. She knows that this is going to be hard work but she’s excited," Palin said. Asked if Sarah Palin would visit the show, Bristol answered, "Hopefully."
