Dancing With the StarsThe official lineup for ‘s was announced this morning on .  And despite the ‘leaked’ list you might have heard about this week, here is the correct list as presented by Apolo Ohno, and host Tom Bergeron:

  • Jennie Garth - 90210 alum #12 (if you include Ian Ziering from last season)

  • Jane Seymour - Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman
  • Helio Castroneves - He’s going to drive his partner all over the dance floor.
  • Mark Cuban - If he doesn’t win, he’ll probably just buy the network.

  • Albert Reed - I hear he’s a model as well.  I approve of this one.

‘The View’ To Announce Replacements

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Daytime, Talk Shows, ABC, Rumors,

The ViewFor months now, our view of The View has been constantly changing.  A long roster of guests have helped to help fill the seat once occupied by Star Jones Reynolds.  And occasionally, Whoopi Goldberg has sat in the first seat left cold by Rosie O’Donnell.

The guessing game should end next week when producers are expected to announce permanent replacements.  Frequent seat-warmer Sherri Shepherd is finally expected to move from contract to permanent status.  (As many times as she has spilled her life story to those ladies, I would be incredibly upset if she did not get the gig).  As for the other slot?  That has Whoopi’s name written all over it.  Apparently, this means all rumors of a possible gay counterpart will probably be squashed.

Unfortunately, ABC’s Human Resources Department will only be getting a quick break.  Their job recruitment services will again be on demand soon when goes on her maternity leave.
