Every time I bring up the subject, Ben reminds me that, "Dancing With The Stars" is "dead to him!" The year that Bristol Palin was a cast member was the year he stopped caring. He is so touchy!

The 18th season of the show premieres on March 24th with the following cast:

Billy Dee Williams & Emma Slater
Candace Cameron Bure & Mark Ballas
Charlie White & Sharna Burgess
Cody Simpson & Witney Carson
Danica McKellar & Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Diana Nyad & Henry Byalikov
Drew Carey & Cheryl Burke
James Maslow & Peta Murgatroyd
Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
NeNe Leakes & Tony Dovolani
Sean Avery & Karina Smirnoff
Amy Purdy & Derek Hough

I have to say, I'm kind of excited about some of the "stars" this time. I mean we have our Gold Medal Ice Dancing champs Charlie White & Meryl Davis, just back from the Sochi Olympics, comedian & "Price Is Right" host, Drew Carey, Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) from "The Wonder Years". . .okay, maybe excited was too strong a word.

But you never know, it might be interesting. It is always fun watching the pros and since I have now seen Derek Hough and Cheryl Burke in person that might give me some new perspective. Or perhaps, Redbox and I will strengthen our relationship on Monday nights.
