ABC's "Dancing" All-Stars Discuss Return to the Stage
The fall television season is almost upon us and Entertainment Tonight is giving fans a sneak peek of the "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" cast.
A new featurette shows several cast members talking about their return to the stage and spotlight.
French Actor Gilles Marini told his dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd, "I wanna be your soldier. No matter what you need from me, I'll be there."
Legendary running back Emmitt Smith had initial reservations about returning to the competition, but explained, "I started thinking about what people would say? Why didn't E Smith come back? Was he scared of the competition?"
Meanwhile, blonde bombshell Pamela Anderson offered a more playful reason for her return to spandex. "I just wanted to do it. I like to be put in uncomfortable positions...literally. I mean like...in this case, I meant."
Surprisingly enough, five out of the twelve contestants have been paired with their original partners, including Melissa Rycroft, who will yet again give her best shot at winning the mirror ball trophy with her season eight pro Tony Dovolani.
Just six weeks away from season 15 kicking off, Rycroft seemed pretty pumped about the fact that she'll get to return to the dance floor with Dovolani, tweeting, "Secret's out ;-). I'm a happy girl! Going to be a great season!"
Bristol Palin, Sabrina Bryan, Kelly Monaco, Shawn Johnson, Joey Fatone, Helio Castroneves, Drew Lachey, Apolo Anton Ono, and Kirstie Alley will round out the season fifteen cast, which premieres September 24th on ABC.
