'Dancing With the Stars' 2011: Season 13 Cast Announced

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 29th 2011 9:47PM
'Dancing With the Stars' emcees Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke were on hand Monday night to announce which celebs have signed up to samba on Season 13 of the ABC reality show. The live announcement, which took place during ABC's summer hit 'Bachelor Pad,' brought us several surprises.

Aside from the usual sports stars, soap stars and reality stars, 'DWTS' strayed from the formula a bit. For one, there's nary a Disney starlet in sight. Who's this season's Chelsea Kane? Could former 'Hills' troublemaker Kristin Cavallari have hidden dance talent we never saw? And in a move that could be controversial to some, Cher's son Chaz Bono, who was born a woman, will paso doble with a female 'DWTS' pro during Season 13.

As far as fan favorites go, we've got our money on Iraq war vet and 'All My Children' actor J.R. Martinez on the men's side, and maybe former talk show host Ricki Lake or Wilson Phillips singer Chynna Phillips for the nostalgia vote on the ladies' side.

'Dancing With the Stars' Season 13 premieres Mon., Sept.19 at 8PM ET on ABC.

Meet all of Season 13's cast below, and then tell us who your early favorites are!

Meet some of the lesser-known cast members:
Elisabetta Canalis, actress

I'm going to be sad that the show is going to be over soon. I admire J.R. Martinez. I bet he's a great dancer. I can't wait to watch it.. As for Chazz, let him alone. He was a woman trapped in a man's body. We don't understand it, but it's not his fault. Give him a break.

Dancing with the Starts?

In today’s society everything goes. Our kids are taught that there is not write or wrong. If that were the case, then killing dogs and cats in the street or any kind of animal would be ok. Or even going around raping women would not be a crime and many criminals in jail having been incarcerated for committing any of this crimes should be let go free.

What am I saying? Well do to the fall some human being have gone through many imperfections and there is no one that does good and never sins. As the proverbist said: “Who can said I have made my heart clean I am pure from my sin?” (Prov. 20:9) The Apostle Paul answered: “ As it is written, there is not righteous no, no, one.” (Rom 3:10). There are not just moral imperfections, but also physical imperfections. There are people being born attached to each other, others without legs, etc. But all these are due to the fall of humankind. There is a curse on humankind, the lower animals and on the earth due to man’s disobedience.

Also, there are many people that don’t like the body they were born in and try to make changes to it. However, sin pays wages, and the wages of sin is death. All of us will die from our last physical illness. At the end there will be a redemption of our bodies. Our bodies will be transformed. As it is written: “And many of those that sleep in the dust and in the ashes will be awaken, some to eternal life and others to eternal condemnation.” (Daniel 12:2)

God knew each one of us even when we were formed in our mother’s womb. (Jer. 1:5). Thus, no change that we can do to our bodies would change that fact despite our physical deformities. We can hide from other human beings, but not from God. He is all knowing. Thus, if you are a Christian and have reservations watching the show with your children, watch the show and use it as an opportunity to teach your children about the fall, the curse, and the consequences of the fall. Teach them about the blaming of each other when did that started? No more justifying their behavior by saying that: “The devil made me do it. Or blaming God, saying that: “The woman you gave me, gave me of the fruit and I ate.” Before God, each one is responsible for his own doings. (Gen. 3:11-21)

The father is not going to pay for the sins of the son, or the son for the sins of the father. Each one will give an account to God for himself or herself. (Ezekiel 18:20)

DWTS is now on par with ipecac syrup (used to induce vomiting). Your talent selection team really needs to undergo some serious mental health counseling. Chaz Bono...??? Give me and the rest of the world a break from one individuals life which we really don't want jammed down our throats....no pun intended.
