*The rumored cast for season 11 of “Dancing with the Stars” was made official Monday night.
Singer-actress Brandy and former NBA star-turned-actor Rick Fox will join “Cory in the House” star Kyle Massey, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol and “Jersey Shore’s” Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino for ABC’s forthcoming ballroom dance-off, due to premiere Sept. 20.
Also confirmed: crooner Michael Bolton, “Dirty Dancing” actress Jennifer Grey, “Brady Bunch” mom Florence Henderson, former “Baywatch” actor David Hasselhoff, comedian Margaret Cho, retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and “The Hills” star Audrina Patridge.
Bristol Palin, 19, said she hoped her mother, the former Alaska governor and U.S. vice presidential candidate, would be on hand to watch her pair up with a professional dancer on the ballroom floor and compete against other celebrity/dancer couples.
“She’s excited for me. She knows this is going to be hard work,” Palin said as the lineup for the show was unveiled last night at the end of ABC’s “Bachelor Pad.”
