The new cast of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars includes a boxer, a football player, a wrestler and a “karate kid.” KIRSTIE ALLEY, talk show host WENDY WILLIAMS and reality TV star KENDRA WILKINSON will be joined by boxer SUGAR RAY LEONARD, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver HINES WARD, pro wrestler CHRIS JERICHO, Karate Kid star RALPH MACCHIO and four other celebrities on the dance floor this spring.

The cast was announced Monday night during a special press conference that aired during The Bachelor. The stars’ respective pro partners were not revealed.  (ABC)

The 12th season of Dancing with the Stars will begin March 21st, with the first results show scheduled for March 29th. Here is the full roster of contestants:

* Sugar Ray Leonard, boxer
* Chelsea Kane, Disney star
* Romeo, entertainer and son of rapper/former DWTS contestant Master P
* Ralph Macchio, star of the original Karate Kid
* Petra Nemcova, model
* Kendra Wilkinson, reality TV star
* Hines Ward, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver
* Mike Catherwood, co-host of radio program Loveline
* Wendy Williams, talk show host
* Chris Jericho, pro wrestler/rock star
* Kirstie Alley, actress

During the live announcement, it seemed like they were really counting on Kristie Alley for some comedy but she really didn’t come through with the goods.   I think she got one quote out that was note worthy.  Also I was freaked out by Ralph Macchio, he looked like he had a hair piece, and has not done a thing of note since Karate Kid.  I mean that is his only credit!  Very strange.   DP
