Dancing with the Stars (otherwise known as Dancing with…wait, who? REALLY?) has confirmed the cast for the upcoming season. Square Eyes already brought you a post bemoaning (or praising) the leaked contestants, being babymama Bristol Palin, sax man Michael Bolton, former baller Rick Fox, comedienne Margaret Cho, actress Jennifer ‘Baby’ Grey, Jersey Shore’s Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, pop singer/killer car crash causer Brandy, and one Mr. David Hasselhoff (no introduction needed). Just announced additions to the cast include The Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson (the obligatory older woman), Disney child actor Kyle Massey (everyone over twelve, say it with me now: who?), retired Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner (obligatory football player), and, last but not least, Audrina Patridge, late of that seminal television program The Hills. Wow. Maybe the ‘Stars’ in the title now refers to the professional ballroom dancers these people will partner.
My question is, when will a Real Housewife of [Wherever] be on the show? Or a Kardashian sister? So many untapped resources, and DwtS goes for the likes of Bristol Palin, Michael Bolton and Kyle Massey? I mean, The Situation must’ve lowered his salary requirements to go on the show, so surely ABC can afford a housewife or two. The Real Housewives of New York are so steamed about the cast of Jersey Shore getting $30k an episode (!!) that they won’t commit to a fourth season unless their salaries are raised. Currently, each wife makes about $4k per episode (same as the real New Jersey housewives), and, according to a source close to the women, “they have little choice but to pimp themselves out with side gigs to bump up their earnings.” There were eighteen episodes in Season 3—that’s a total of $72k before taxes. And aren’t these women supposed to be the idle rich? Why do they care what they get paid? OH RIGHT—because they’re not rich. They’re just upper middle class poseurs. Meanwhile, the Jersey Shore kids are laughing all the way to the bank, and the Real Housewives of New Jersey are beating the stuffing out of each other, and host Andy Cohen, on their reunion show.

Ok, ok, I promise: no more housewives stuff! Starting Thursday: Project Runway talk! Don’t make Tim Gunn angry!
