    Yes, Priscilla is one of the contestants in the upcoming March group. I know this isn't nice but her plastic surgery had to be done by Joan Rivers
    MD. It's been about a year since I saw her on TV but I hope nature has
    taken "the edge" off her teenage appearance.

    I'm not sure who the others are (even after seeing pictures and names).
    There's an NFL guy, a retired ice skater female, a magician ??. Guess we will have an interesting new group to root for...or against...LOL. DDD

    The women are: Priscilla Presley, Kristi Yamaguchi, Marlee Matlin, Monica Seles, Shannon Elizabeth, Marissa Jaret Winokur

    The men are: Adam Carolla, Steve Guttenberg, Penn Jillette, Mario and Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor, Cristian De La Fuente.

    Here's one review of the cast:

    Adam Carolla - The TV and radio personality once paired with Jimmy Kimmel and Dr. Drew Pinsky will now reportedly be paired with Julianne Hough. She's the two-time returning champ, and he's . . . Adam Carolla. This should be interesting.
    Cristin de la Fuente - The Chilean actor hopes to match fellow South American Hélio Castroneves' accomplishments.
    Shannon Elizabeth - The "American Pie" actress is also an accomplished poker player. Can she dance?
    Steve Guttenberg - The "Police Academy" star has been MIA for, say, the entire lifetime of Julianne Hough.
    Mario - The R&B singer was in the dance movie "Step Up." He must have some skills.
    Marlee Matlin - The Oscar winner for "Children of a Lesser God" will be the show's first deaf contestant. Not sure how this will work, but Matlin has showed she can do pretty much anything.
    Penn Jillette - You know him as the more talkative, and much larger, half of the famous illusionist team Penn & Teller. At 6-foot-6, he may be at a disadvantage. Remember 6-7 Clyde Drexler?
    Priscilla Presley - As Jane Seymour, 57, proved, age is nothing but a number. Presley is 62.
    Monica Seles - As the holder of nine grand slam singles titles, she's, obviously, already a champion.
    Jason Taylor - The NFL Man of the Year hasn't won a Super Bowl, but he could be a dancing champion.
    Marissa Jaret Winokur - She won a Tony Award for her role as Tracy Turnblad in "Hairspray." Lots of dancing in that. Could be an advantage.
    Kristi Yamaguchi - The Bay Area native and Olympic gold medalist has shown grace and skills on the ice, but how will she do on the dancing floor?

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to this season as well. The girls may watch with me too:D

    As far as Pricilla Presley and her facial work...I agree...when I saw her, I didn't think it looked very flattering.

    Well, I was hoping that Hairspray girl was the one from the movie *pout*...but I think she might still be the one I root for. I looked at her website and she looks alot like the one in the movie, and has that curvy Sabrina figure.

    tinamarie, I just looked at that website. Wow, she looks great. I remember when she first came out and did the Broadway play. She was quite a B-I-G girl. No so much anymore. She looks really different.

    Penn frrom Penn and Teller....Bafaw!!!!

    Steve Gutenberg....didn't Leno or one of the late night hosts do a spoof on him (with him being a part of it) on how he's had no career, recently. It was pretty funny.

    Kathy, sad that Maks isn't coming back, but I think he's tired of getting so close and just not making it. Poor baby! I'm sure he will be doing a lot of choreography on the show and will be making several appearances.....Not to worry, Kathy, I'm sure you'll get to see that bare naked, chizled chest again!

    Let us please share a moment of silence for Kathy's pain.

    I'm so sorry, Kathy...

    Thanks, Suz. With the board support I'll get through this somehow.

    :doctor: I may need medications, though.
