    DWTS pairs announced

    Here they are:

    Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani

    Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya

    Kirstie Alley and Maksim Cherkovskiy

    Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff

    Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel

    Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas

    Romeo and Chelsie Hightower

    Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer

    Hines Ward and Kym Johnson

    Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke

    Petra Nemcova and Dimitry Chaplin


    Poor Max, lucky Kendra and Petra, and once again Tony gets a lady over 40 while Mark gets the teenybopper.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I look forward to them.
    I only hope that Petra has sufficient "name recognition" and dances well enough to stay in the competition.
    She's dealt with the challenges of the last several years with such grace that I would love for her to succeed here.

    I think Petra Nemcova is a contemporary name -- unlike Paulina Porizkova or unknown like Josie Maran. I think people especially know her because of the tragic story of how she lost her boyfriend in the tsunami.

    There are only 4-5 "stars" that I even recognize.

    Oh, since you said this I now know who Nemcova is, but I would never have remembered her name. Unless they bring up the tsunami every episode, I don't think people will get it.



    I would be interested in seeing Ralph Macchio, Sugar Ray Keonard and Kirstie Alley, but there are too many no-names to make me wanna watch this season.

    oh, I know they'll bring it up every episode - I was just commenting that in this case, people will need the reminders (unlike the former Mrs Paul McCartney)

    Maybe this is a chance for Anna Trebunskaya to win. Sugar Ray Leonard should be a good dancer. Just hoping

    Me too. Sorry, Maks, but I can't abide Kirstie Alley. Maybe you'll get to leave early and get on back to filming the Ukrainian Bachelor.

    This is DWTS. For sure, it will be detailed in the first show and probably mentioned liberally after that. "Oh, I broke my pelvis in the tsunami and cannot do that move." "This song reminds me of my dead fiance."

    All they have to do is pull quotes from this article.

    Kirstie has a pet name for Maks.

    All her tweets refer to him as "Boo"

    Anyone know how ABC/DWTS picks the partner for the star? Do they just pull names out of hat

    They take the best person and assign them to Derek, and then take the worst and stick them with Tony. The rest is based on height, personality etc.

    Pictures of the couples

    Petra looks kind of stiff in her pose. Potential Uh-Oh for Dmitry.

    Ralph Macchio is kinda hot, .

    Wendy Williams ... Um...


    I think Chelsea Kane has some dancing ability judging from the picture; She and Mark will be among the frontrunners.

    Catherwood looks cute, but his pose doesn't convince me that he can move. He reminds me of Mark Warner.

    I've been racking my brain trying to figure out who Chelsea Kane is and I realize that she used to go by Staub. I know way too much about Disney channel people. Damn my love of Phineas & Ferb!

    I must be living under a rock, since I don't know who most of these "celebrities" are.
