While the cast won’t be officially announced until August 29, the dance card is apparently starting to fill up. TMZ.com is reporting that “Jersey Shore‘s Snooki, Queen Latifah and Tiffani Thiessen (‘White Collar’) are going to compete in the next season of “Dancing With the Stars.” They’ll allegedly join Rob Kardashian, whom TMZ had previously said would be in the new cast. There’s still no confirmation of anyone from the network end yet, however.
One more question that always pops up around this time of year: What about Derek’s sister,Julianne Hough – wills he be back? Don’t count on it. She is working on the movie “Rock of Ages,” and she has a starring role in a remake of “Footloose,” which will be in theaters in October.
