With all of the crap going on in the world, I look forward to fun news and announcements. So, the cast announcement for the next season of “Dancing With The Stars” (DWTS) had my full attention this morning.
I had not even heard any rumors for this season’s cast, so I was on the edge of my couch, grasping my cell phone ready to Tweet and blog all about it. When actor/singer Jack Wagner was announced and semi-graced the stage (his trip was of course accidental), I jumped out of my seat and nearly spilled my coffee.
Every season I look forward to there being at least one of my former crushes from childhood/teenhood (past examples are Joey McIntyre, Joey Lawrence, Donny Osmond, Ralph Macchio) to grace the dance floor. So I was not disappointed to see soap icon Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones from “General Hospital” and some other soaps including “Melrose Place” … basically, he is secret agent Frisco Jones to me!) step out on the stage.
So now the questions arise … Will he sing “All I Need” or another one of his songs from the 1980s? Am I the only one who remembers his songs? The chance of him singing on the DWTS stage is unlikely, but hopefully he will at least dance to something related to his songs, Frisco, or “General Hospital.”
And Kristina Wagner, if you are reading this, us die-hard Frisco and Felicia fans would love to see you in the audience. I know he is your ex-husband and all (they were married in real life, too), but seeing you support him would give fans that long-awaited Frisco and Felicia reunion. We’ll take what we can get. And if ex-fiancee and “Melrose Place” co-star Heather Locklear shows up, we could have a soap-themed love triangle right in the audience!
Here is the full cast of season 14 of DWTS, along with their professional dance partners (whom frankly, I believe are more famous than some of the “celebrities.”) …
- Jack Wagner will dance with pro Anna Trebunskaya
- Sherri Shepherd with pro Val Chmerkovskiy
