Before the official announcement is read this Sunday, the cast of "Dancing with the Stars" season 8, has been leaked partly. Allegedly, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, Denise Richards, will shake her body in competition with "Jackass" star Steve-O and country singer Jewel Kilcher.
Reporting Denise's casting scoop was Life & Style Weekly that claims the actress has been prepping herself by losing a few pounds and toning it up. "She's super excited and has lost a few pounds to tone up and get in shape," an insider told the magazine. "She's ready and thinks she can go all the way!"
OK! Weekly meanwhile, spilled on Steve-O's participation. "Steve-O is taking his dancing very seriously," a source told OK!. "He's committed to leading a healthy, wholesome life, and that includes mastering the classic moves of dance!" In December 2008, Steve had reportedly given his verbal agreement to participate in the show but ABC had not responded.
Jewel's stint was thrown out by In Touch which quoted a source, "Jewel is so excited about being on the show. She loves to dance. She's thrilled because of what the show has done for past contestants' bodies."
The final and official line-up will be announced on Sunday, February 8 during an "All Night Name Drop" event that kicks off at 8/7c. As further promotion, one of the cast will appear on "Good Morning America" on Monday, February 9 and another one will visit "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" the next day. The show itself will premiere Monday, March 9, at 8/7c.
