The cast of 'Dancing With the Stars' on 'Today'Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb followed the buzz about the new cast of 'Dancing With the Stars' by giving their own rundown on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). They went through each contestant one-by-on, showing their photos and giving commentary on each selection.

Carson Kressley, said Gifford, would provide the laughs for the show. Of former George Clooney girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, Gifford said, "She's gotta do something now, she's not going out with George Clooney anymore." She also said she had known about Nancy Grace's casting in advance, but had to keep it secret.

They were most interested in Chaz Bono, whom Kotb said surprised Cher by not telling her he was going on the show. "I think a lot of things came to Cher as a surprise regarding Chaz," Gifford said, referring to Bono's sex-change operation. "But Chaz is going to have a female partner." Gifford and Kotb thought that would be interesting, but not any more interesting than Grace having a human partner.
