'Dancing with the Stars' Lineup Announced

ABC’s Good Morning America announced the lineup for the upcoming seventh season of Dancing with the Stars Monday morning, and here’s how it breaks down: four actors, three athletes, two singers, one chef, one comedian, one model/TV host and one…Kim Kardashian.

Among the more recognizable names set for the hit reality competition series, which premieres Sept. 22, are Emmy winner Susan Lucci, former ‘N Sync member Lance Bass, and Grammy winner Toni Braxton, who has made headlines in recent months due to undisclosed health problems and trips to the hospital.

Braxton won’t be the only celeb facing questions about her fitness to foxtrot, however: Kardashian, star of the E! reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, was hospitalized briefly on Sunday after cutting her foot on a glass table. But she was quick to tell GMA on Monday that she “will be fine” and “able to dance.” Aw, shucks!

The three athletes who will take to the dance floor are Misty May-Treanor, who will be less than a month removed from taking home gold at the Beijing Olympics, recently retired NFL player Warren Sapp, following in the footsteps of fellow football player Jason Taylor on last season’s DWTS, and world-record-holding runner Maurice Greene.

Rounding out the ‘stars’ are renowned chef Rocco DiSpirito, former host of Rock Star host Brooke Burke, Hannah Montana’s Cody Linley, former Married with Children star Ted McGinley (Jefferson!), and Cloris Leachman and Jeffrey Ross, both of whom are fresh off the Roast of Bob Saget--and taking some shots at each other.

Figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi won last season’s title.
