From bleep-needing reality-TV brat to fleet-footed fox-trotter. The Princess of Darkness told E! News the idea of dancing on the show "really scared" her. No more than watching daddy bite the head off a bat, though.
Her partner may be looking to avoid some people this season, but the 45-year-old mother of two has been buckling down in the studio to ensure that everything goes smoothly when she and Maks are face to face.
Don't worry! Donny may be on the floor here, but we hear he's doing just fine. And not just people-like-Marie-so-they-vote-for-her-fine. Actually-dancing-really-well fine.
Can Dmitri take Mya there, all the way to the finale? The mono-monikered R&B princess can strut her stuff (see: "Lady Marmalade"), but is she as light on her feet as her birdlike frame suggests?
We know Hamilton has great intestinal fortitude (he was married to Shannen Doherty, after all), but does he have the knee, back and wrist strength to make a good showing onstage? If he makes the finale, his union with DWTS will have lasted almost as long as his first marriage.
The 21-year-old snowboarder is cutting into his training time for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver by participating in this show, but perhaps he'll shred up the floor and score some wicked air doing the quickstep.
This time it's someone else's turn to explain it all as the actress learns the ballroom basics in time for her Dancing With the Stars debut.
Well, this looks like fun! If Lacey could make Steve-O look somewhat respectable, think of what she can do with Iron Chef America's nimble chairman (so long as he doesn't spend all his time showing off). And if on one night they have to dance five numbers, all including bluefin tuna...they're golden.
Here's hoping Karina doesn't have too much on her mind to craft some hot little numbers for the two of them because, word around town is, Nick's little bro isn't half bad. Perhaps it can be Aaron's Party once again, this time featuring a gaudy disco ball...
Gold-medal-winning backstroker that she is, we're thinking Olympian Natalie Coughlin shouldn't have too much trouble summoning the strength to hold that strict dancer's frame.
The former congressman knows all about winning votes (and tap-dancing, according to some), but he's no Gilles Marini, as his two-time champion partner has probably already discovered. But DeLay's a Texas two-stepper at heart, so he may surprise a few people.
Here's hoping the Polish-born beauty has more staying power than fellow models Paulina Porizkova and Josie Maran, first-round castoffs the both of them. Not to mention more staying power than Joanna Krupa, from the recent ABC competition Superstars. Hmmm...
Having a few Super Bowl rings never hurt anyone in this competition—and Irvin's got three. The NFL Hall of Famer is also as new to DWTS as his partner is. Anna became the show's newest pro after viewers voted her in last season. Maybe she can ride a Cowboy all the way to victory.
From the look of things, it seems the UFC champ has everything under control. Here's hoping Anna's informed him that Len Goodman won't think too much of the relaxed, hands-down stance he's known for in the cage.
So long as the former Sports Illustrated model doesn't wipe out on the dance floor the way she did on her surfboard, she should do just fine. But next time, she should not go out and have fun just because Tony tells her to.
