'Dancing With the Stars': Two weeks until Season 7
You've probably been distracted lately -- by political conventions, hurricanes and another O.J. trial starting up -- to take in the real news: namely, that "Dancing With the Stars" kicks off Season 7 two weeks from today.
Now that you've absorbed this news, you're probably beside yourself with excitement, and how are you possibly going to wait two whole weeks? Well, here are some tidbits of "DWTS" news to tide you over:
-- "DWTS" pro Tony Dovolani (paired last season with semifinalist Marissa Jaret Winokur) and his wife just had twins.
-- Cloris Leachman was turned down twice for the show because of her age. And now that age (82) is being shouted from the mountaintops in "DWTS" news releases!
-- One of the new pros on the show is rumored to be ostracized by fellow dancers because she's been paired with the early favorite, Lance Bass.
