Dancing with the Stars announces its first contenstant — and it's a RHOA star
We know one person who's ready for the next season of Dancing with the Stars.
According to Us Weekly, one contestant on the upcoming 22nd season of DWTS has already been confirmed by multiple sources: The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Fields.
Fields is no stranger to the spotlight; before appearing on RHOA this season, she was already known for her roles on sitcoms The Facts of Life and Living Single in the '80s and '90s. RHOA is her first foray into reality TV and she's been bringing the drama, repeatedly clashing with castmate Kenya Moore. Maybe her mean girl side will make her a tough competitor for the mirror ball trophy.
Rumors also say that Fuller House's Jodie Sweetin will be competing on Season 22, though there's no confirmation of that yet. The full list of contestants won't be revealed until Tuesday, March 8, during a live unveiling on Good Morning America.
Regardless of which celebrities will make the cast this season, we already know of some big changes coming to DWTS. Legendary dancer Julianne Hough, who won the mirror ball twice and has been on the judges' panel for the last three seasons, won't be returning this time around. Len Goodman, who bowed out for Season 21, will be returning to the panel.
