The final piece of the Dancing With the Stars cast puzzle has been put into place with the show's announcement of its pairings.
Kirstie Alley teaming up with Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a match made in media heaven. He's not known for having patience and she is definitely going to need it. Something tells us these two will be the talk of the ballroom.
Also teaming up on Dancing With the Stars for season 12 will be Wendy Williams with Tony Dovolani and E! star Kendra Wilkinson with Louis van Amstel. Louis van Amstel has a track record of turning decent dancers into beautiful swans. Something told us to watch out for Wilkinson from day one and now we're even more excited.
Also in the mix are Petra Nemcova with Dmitry Chaplin, Ralph Macchio with Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke with Chris Jericho and Disney star Chelsea Kane with Mark Ballas. Will Mark Ballas finally take his trophy back? There is no sign of Derek Hough this season due to his schedule (he's filming a movie), so it could be Ballas' turn.
The rest of the cast includes Romeo and Chelsie Hightower, Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer, Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya and football player Hines Ward and Kym Johnson.
