When I Think Of Dancing, I Think Of Michael Irvin And Chuck Liddell

michael-irvinchuck_liddellBrace yourselves, fans of dreadful reality shows, Michael Irvin and Chuck Liddell have joined the ranks of C-List celebrities who will be competing on next season’s Dancing with the Stars, set to premiere September 21st. Joining Irvin and Liddell from the world of sports will be Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin and professional snowboarder Louie Vito.

Wow. I can hardly contain my excitement. Now I have two more reasons why I never intend to watch this show. What is so compelling about watching a bunch of has-beens seeking any kind of attention they can dance? Not interested. On the other hand, a Running Man with the Stars – now that would be something I would tune in to.

Who else is on the show, you ask? Well, a virtual cavalcade of people that when you read their names, you go, “Huh. So-and-so is still alive? Wow.”

The complete list of contestants includes singers Mya, Macy Gray and Aaron Carter; actresses Ashley Hamilton, Melissa Joan Hart and Debi Mazar; models Joanna Krupa and Kathy Ireland; reality stars Mark Dacascos and Kelly Osbourne; entertainer Donny Osmond; and former Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Batten down the hatches. Tom DeLay and Michael Irvin on the same show? Can you possibly imagine how much coke those two are going to blow through? It will be like Studio 54 in more ways than one, I can guarantee you that much.

I suppose it makes sense for Irvin to appear on Dancing with the Stars. They have already had Emmitt Smiff as a contestant and just think how much money they are going to save solely on wardrobe costs having Irvin on the show. That guy comes in prepared.

Liddell? I’m not too sure about that choice. Although I would love to see him put that Tom Bergeron in some sort of submission hold and wipe that smug smile off that dork’s face.
