ABC revealed the cast of the upcoming season 17 of Dancing With The Stars this morning and they’re taking it back to their roots of reality tv stars, 90′s icons and NFL pros. One of the biggert names in the cast, surprisingly is Snooki – who not too long ago had her first child, Lorenzo and just a year later seems to be in the best shape of her life.
Snooki won’t be the first former Jersey Shore castmember to join the ABC dancing show – Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino competed on season 11. Another castmember that we revealed last week is Valerie Harper, who is currently in remission from terminal brain cancer. Sources say Valerie is practicing the same schedule as the rest of the contestants and not requiring any special treatment.
Other stars casted seem to have extensive dance backgrounds such as Corbin Bleu from High School Musical, Elizabeth Berkley who worked the pole in Showgirls, Christina Milian and Amber Riley from Glee.
