ABC has released the lineup of competitors for this fall’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and it’s the most eclectic collection of celebrities to date, including former House majority leader Tom DeLay, supermodel Kathy Ireland, singer Macy Gray, and four professional athletes (athletes traditionally do well on the show): Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin, Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin, former MMA champion Chuck Liddell, and snowboarder Louie Vito. The full list is available here.
As always, I plan to cheer for the attractive women without actually watching the show. This year, that will include model Joanna Krupa and — to lesser extents — Ireland and Coughlin. Kathy Ireland’s obviously past her prime, but I like that she’s outspoken about being pro-life. I’m not pro-life myself, but I like girls that are. They tend to view condoms as a sin.
