Dorothy's in the new cast!
I may actually have to vote this season!!
Oooh--but can she match Kristi (won) and outdo Evan (came in second)? There's a lot of pressure to perform for Olympic champion figure skaters on DWTS!
As long as she outlasts Andy Dick, I'll be happy.
Your lips to God's ears.
Damn it, now I HAVE to watch.....
She is partnered with fan favorite Tristan. Sounds like a great pairing to me!
Between Aly Raisman and Dorothy Hamill, I probably have to watch this season. It'll be a first for me!
I've been skipping this show lately but will now watch to cheer on Dorothy, Kellie, Aly & Wynona! Go Girls!
If Dorothy is on DWTS, I may actually watch the show this year.
I WILL watch and VOTE, for sure. Dorothy is THE Olympic Icon of my lifetime!!!
I don't think Dorothy will match Kristie or Evan's results, but I'll be voting for her! I can't wait to see her walrz, I'm sure she'll be elegant.
When will this stoopid show commence? Now I'll have to watch.
I think the mature ladies always have issues with the fast dances and also the sexier Latin dances. Dorothy is not as flexible as she used to be anymore and she has arithris, so she could be hampered by those. Still, very exciting to see her on tv again. She's always a class act.
Monday, March 18 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on ABC.
I wish she could have been partnered with Tony. Tristan is too young.
Considering how well Tristan did with Nancy Grace, I'd say Dorothy is in good hands (and feet).
OMG, I am so excited by this! and Zendaya (from Disney dance show) will thrill my 14yo. I can't wait! Aly should be really good too! And I like DL Hughley and Wynonna and Andy Dick and Jacoby. I can't turn away!
Terrible show, great line-up ... I shake my fist at you as I tune in.
I'll watch for Dorothy's sake and vote for her. This type of show might actually improve the artistic expression of someone like Aly Raisman imo.
I've never watched this show, but have seen excerpts on youtube of Kelly Osbourne's dazzling first performance to "Trouble", as well as Marie Osmond's fabulous 1940's Andrews Sisters routine.
And now I'm going to add Dorothy Hamill as well, can't wait!
I watched it when Shawn Johnson was on, although I voted for Gilles Marini and felt he was robbed in the end. I watched it again when Evan was on. I'll watch and will be rooting for Dorothy. I'm also curious to see how someone like Aly Raisman with her poor form and no grace that I can see comes along (if she lasts). Johnson was quite a surprize for me. She got better as she went along. She was clean in her gymnastics but I never saw anything that I could call graceful or artistic. Just robotic.
Two from Baltimore. If they would've made it three by adding John Waters, think of the ratings!
If anyone didn't see Kristi on DWTS, go to You Tube and watch some of her performances--especially "The Jive" and "Winning Free Style." She was WQW. I just rewatched them. I haven't watched the show since Evan was on, but of course I'll watch Dorothy.
I read recently from a past interview that she has a permanent shoulder injury from when a book case fell on her shoulder when she was moving. As a result she said she no longer lifts things above her head or carries heavy objects like luggage. I wonder how this will limit the dance movements she can make. I had decided not to watch the show anymore, but guess I will, at least, until Dorothy leaves.
Well, I would think if she can't rotate her arm UP, it would limit some things like New Yorkers and some open work in Smooth, though she shouldn't really be doing any heavy lifting. I'd be more concerned if she's got arthritis in her hips and knees--they take a lot of wear and tear.

I love Dorothy's wrists, her hands, much less her feet. She is elegant, the whole package.
Who's this Dorothy Hamill person??
Looking forward to Dancing Dot!

Dorothy Hamill returned to waltz in last night's finale with Kristi Yamaguchi (is there a video?) - photos: http://www.icenetwork.com/photos/gallery.jsp?content_id=48278372
Article published before the finale with quotes by Gracie Gold and Adam Rippon: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20130515&content_id=47605656&vkey=ice_news
Rippon was invited by Aly Raisman and brought Doug Razzano, Derrick Delmore, and Amy Evidente (one of Nagasu's coaches) with him to the show a few weeks ago: http://instagram.com/p/YtPV0-JCfT/
Yep, those who stuck with this DWTS season posted about that nice surprise re Dorothy and Kristi, in the DWTS thread in OTBT.
Thanks for the info on skating stars in the DWTS audience last night and during other recent shows.
Yay, I found a video from last night's show! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iOmClef_gM

They were wonderful!
It was a very touching and enjoyable surprise!!
Thanks so much for this video. Seeing Dorothy and Kristi together actually gave me chills.
Dorothy and Kristi both seem like lovely, gracious women and are terrific ambassadors for the sport. It's great to see the respect they have for one another!
