Bristol PalinSilly me. I thought that Dancing With the Stars was about professional dancers getting teamed up with stars. But going by this next season's rumored cast, I'm thinking the name Dancing With Fame Whores is more appropriate. The latest contestant revealed? Bristol Palin!

Okay, now pick your jaw up off the floor. If you think about it, is it really all that surprising? The teen mom has been using her "circumstances" to be a quasi-celebrity, being paid to show up at events, landing acting gigs, etc. Now she'll just be doing it in a glittery dress.

Other casted "stars" include The Hills' Audrina Patridge and Jersey Shore's The Situation (please, please let him fist-pump in his dance routines). Needless to say, I think it'll be an interesting season.

What do you think about these cast members?
