September 12th is just around the corner, and it will be "the day" for me! Okay, I'm vain enough to absolutely LOVE Dancing with the Stars on ABC. The last season was just spectacular. Here's the story from the Chicago Suntimes and I can hardly wait:
More celebs put on their 'Dancing' shoes

We know Tucker Carlson can spin the words of a politician, and Emmitt Smith can shuffle past a blocker, and Jerry Springer can hustle a two-timing cross-dresser.
But can they dance?
America will find out next month when they join eight other B- and C-listers on the new season of "Dancing With the Stars," the hit ABC competition that pairs ballroom pros with uncertain celebs.
Testing their twinkle-toes during the third season, starting Sept. 12 on WLS-Channel 7, will be:
Jerry Springer: Chicago-based host of the notorious daytime talk show keeping the world apprised of lowbrow behavior.
Mario Lopez: Former star of "Saved by the Bell" and "The Bold and the Beautiful."
Emmitt Smith: The Dallas Cowboys great who holds the NFL's all-time rushing record.
Willa Ford: A flash-in-the-pan pop princess and former Playboy model.
Vivica A. Fox: An actress seen in "Kill Bill" and "Independence Day."
Harry Hamlin: The "L.A. Law" actor married to last spring's "Dancing With the Stars"
competitor Lisa Rinna.
Sara Evans: A country singer known for the hits "Suds in the Bucket" and "A Real Fine Place to Start."
Joe Lawrence: Back when he was "Joey," a teen heartthrob and co-star of "Blossom."
Monique Coleman: An actress from the Disney Channel sensation "High School Musical."
Tucker Carlson: The conservative journalist and pundit, formerly of CNN, now on MSNBC.
Shanna Moakler: Star of MTV's "Meet the Barkers," chronicling her doomed marriage to rocker Travis Barker.
Just called a lady who is very special to me, and she said that "Sara Evans is fabulous!"
Never heard her, or her music, but I'll be anxiously awaiting her "dancing" debut.
I've been having "DWTTS" withdrawals all summer, so now I can get my "fix."
