Although the full list of names will be revealed Friday, some of the dancing couples for the next season of “Dancing With the Stars” have been revealed.
“Entourage” star Debi Mazar will be paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who has danced with everyone from Denise Richards to Spice Girl Mel B in the past, “Access Hollywood” reports. Donny Osmond is rumored to be paired with Kym Johnson. The pair have reportedly already started rehearsing together. Johnson has danced with David Alan Grier, Mark Cuban and Joey Fatone on previous seasons.
Ashley Hamilton’s dad, actor George Hamilton, revealed that his son will be dancing with Edyta Sliwinska, whom George danced with when he competed on the show. The final dance partnership that has been revealed is the pairing of swimmer Natalie Coughlin and dancer Alec Mazo.
“I want to compete on ’DWTS’ ’cause I love competition. I love learning new things, so it’s going to be really good,” Carter told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I don’t know any ballroom steps, nothing like that, so it’s a whole new kind of thing for me.”
Meanwhile, Osbourne revealed that she’ll be using the show as an opportunity to get fit. She told Ryan Seacrest on his morning radio show, “My body is going to get sick and be toned … I mean this from the bottom of my heart: I don’t care if I win. I’m not doing this to try and prove that I’m better than someone else at something, I’m doing it because it scares me.”
