DWTS 15 – All Star Cast Announcement (Live Blog)

Another season, another cast…oh wait. Another season, with an old cast, of sorts. :-)  I am actually excited – didn’t think it was going to happen.  I imagine the screaming will start shortly, however.

Anyway, tune in here at 10:30 pacific (1:30 eastern time) we’ll be updating as fast as we can and, of course, snarking as hard as we can. We will get snark out of Vogue if it’s the last thing we do. ;-)  Come on, Vogue, you can do it!! :-)  If you want to see the announcement as it happens, I think you need to watch ABC.com

@ABCPublicity says on Twitter (will update if official page is different):

ETA 1:  The general media is reporting this cast – let me know if I made any errors.  They announced early and I was caught off guard. :-)

ETA 2: After a moment to catch my breath…I’m digging this cast, with the huge exception of Bristol.  And many people are going to have new partners, so they better ALL have new partners. If they stack it in Cheryl or Mark’s favor by giving them Gilles and Shawn, respectively?? I’ll be kinda pissed. Give Cheryl Drew since he’s been away for a while and put Mark back with Bristol.  That said…can Shawn or Gilles win against the likes of Helio or Apolo?? I doubt it. Even without Julianne, those are two very likable dudes. 

ETA 3: UPDATE From ABC

ETA 4:  PRO PARTNERSHIPS ANNOUNCED ON GMA AUGUST 13TH
