‘Dancing with the Stars’ to Bring Back Old Favorites for All-Star Edition
“We can’t talk about the casting yet, but I’d love to see some of the fan favorites from the last seasons come back. We have many from the past 14 seasons,” said ABC president, Paul Lee on a conference call earlier today.
Though Lee was tight-lipped on the cast, one potential ‘Dancing’ all-star wasn’t. During a guest-hosting stint on ‘Live with Kelly!’ season three finalist, Mario Lopez took it upon himself to break the news of the upcoming All-Star season.
“You know what Kelly? They’re doing a ‘Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars’ this next season. They called me to do it,”said Lopez.
Lopez’s admission comes as no surprise, however, as he and partner/then-girlfriend, Karina Smirnoff were favorites during their season. And ABC is hoping fans will want to watch the likes of Lopez, Cloris Leachman and Lil Kim do the cha-cha, once again.
