The show always used the term 'Stars' loosely



Tbdnewton083007 All you Dancing With the Stars fanatics (you know who you are) have no doubt already set up betting pools on the contestants for next season, but for the rest of us the field announced Wednesday is a bit of a surprise.

Billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, welterweight boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Las Vegas headliner Wayne Newton (pictured) are among the 12 celebrities who will compete when the show returns to ABC Sept. 24, the AP reports.

The other hopefuls are “Scary Spice” Melanie Brown; Sabrina Bryan of Disney Channel’s Cheetah Girls; Indy 500 champ Helio Castroneves; Beverly Hills 90210’s Jennie Garth; model-actress Josie Maran; All My Children’s Cameron Mathison; singer Marie Osmond; model Albert Reed; and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman herself, Jane Seymour. We’d give anything to see them go up against Emmitt Smith.
