DwtS 3 Celebrities Announced

The big day has finally arrived! ABC announced the celebrity contestants for Dancing with the Stars 3 this morning. There were few surprises on the list, due to the many rumors circulated about the cast — all of which happened to be true.

The celebrity cast for DWTS 3:
Emmitt Smith – former Dallas Cowboy
Vivica A. Fox – Kill Bill actress
Harry Hamlin – L.A. Law/Veronica Mars actor
Mario Lopez – Saved by the Bell actor
Shanna Moakler – former Miss USA, Meet the Barkers
Tucker Carlson – conservative pundit
Joey Lawrence – Blossom actor
Jerry Springer – legendary talk show host
Sara Evans – country singer
Willa Ford – pop singer
Monique Coleman – High School Musical actress

I’ll have more DWTS posts later this week, handicapping the contestants and revealing some of their professional partners.

In the meantime, if you’re interested in getting in DWTS shape, ABC is looking for a woman to train with a professional partner, following the same routine as the celebrity contestants. Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, August 16th.
