Dancing with the Stars 2007

Paul McCartney’s estranged wife, activist Heather Mills (above), is one of the contestants on next edition of Dancing with the Stars (which debuts on ABC on March 19th.) Mills, who lost part of one of her legs in a motorcycle accident, will try to put her increasingly messy divorce proceedings with Sir Paul (who apparently never heard the term “pre-nup”) on the back burner while she learns to do the tango and the other dances. Dancing producers say that she will be judged exactly the same as the other contestants despite her artificial limb.

The other contestants are:

Muhammad Ali’s daughter, boxer Laila Ali

Country singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus

Former NBA star Clyde Drexler

Actor and former 'N Sync member Joey Fatone

Miss USA 2004 Shandi Finnessey

Former Entertainment Tonight co-host Leeza Gibbons

Olympic gold medal winning ice skater Apolo Ohno

Actor Vincent Pastore (who is, perhaps to his chagrin, best known as “Big Pussy” from The Sopranos)

Model Paulina Porizkova

And Beverly Hills 90210 actor Ian Ziering

Interesting line-up.
I hope one of the first songs played will be Kanye West's "Gold Digger"

Ian and Cheryl get my vote! They always look fantastic and give every dance their 100%. Ian is not a professional dancer like Joey Fatone, or a professional athlete like Apolo or Laila, so he comes to the show at a disadvantage to them. But yet he stays up with them in talent. A week ago he received six straight "9s" from the judges, so he definitely has the potential to win. I hope he surprises everyone by giving us his best performances in the next two weeks and capturing the trophy. If you like Ian and Cheryl, please do your part to vote for them on Monday -- vote 4 times for each phone number and 4 times online. Also, Ian has really cool videos on his websites at and and there you can sign up to receive his fun email blasts.
