'DWTS' brings back Kirstie Alley, Bristol Palin

ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" is giving prior contenders another shot at winning the Mirror Ball Trophy in the series' first ever "All-Stars" season.

As expected, it was announced Friday that prior contestants Pamela Anderson, Melissa Rycroft and Joey Fatone are among those returning, and - what do you know - so is Bristol Palin.

Her mother did tell New York Magazine's Vulture that the family takes part in reality TV because it's part of their "family's mantra," to "live life vibrantly," but Bristol's cautioned that reality TV isn't their bread and butter.

As TV Guide and others pointed out on Twitter, Palin said at the TCAs, "I don't think [reality TV] is our family business."

Family business or not, she'll be putting on her dancing shoes when "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" premieres Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET.

ABC threw a few champions into the current cast of 12 for the upcoming "All-Stars" season, and is (trying to?) up the ante by having viewers vote on a 13th celebrity to compete. Starting Friday, fans can cast their vote for either Kyle Massey, Carson Kressley or Sabrina Bryan to return to the dance floor as the "Viewer's Choice."

ABC.com's taking votes now through Friday, August 24 at 12 p.m. PT, and the winner of the "Viewer's Choice" title will be revealed during "Good Morning America" on August 27.

Until then, here's the rest of the cast:

Kirstie Alley; Pamela Anderson; Helio Castroneves; Joey Fatone; Shawn Johnson; Drew Lachey; Gilles Marini; Kelly Monaco; Apolo Anton Ohno; Palin; Melissa Rycroft; and Emmitt Smith.

What do you think of the "All-Stars" cast, and who will you be voting in as "Viewer's Choice"?

    I thought I'd give the show one more chance, even with Bristol Palin, Pamela Anderson and Kirstie Alley. However, Monday night wasn't all tht bad. What was "really bad" was elimination night (Tuesday),..wasting time interviewing each contestant as to why they chose to appear on the show "plus" the horrible band's (ranting, stoming, raving) just absolutely ruined everything. This was the lowest point I've ever seen on DWTS. That's the end for me.

    Can someone remind me why Bristol Palin is a "Celebrity"? Oh yeah.... pregnant at 17 with a "famous" mother who is dumber than a bag of hammers. Not interest in either of them, the show or the rest of the cast. This show has jumped the shark, a looooooong time ago.

    Some of those are a little disappointing. Shawn and Melissa were both technically good dancers but just not that fun to watch. Bristol was neither good nor fun to watch. Pam and Kristie were fun but not mirror-ball good.
    I could wish they had picked a whole cast of finalists – not winners, but second or third place. They were all good dancers and it would give them a second shot at that mirror ball that they so narrowly missed.

      Let's run down the list:

      Shawn Johnson - chubby little gold medalist; cute
      Pam Anderson - dirty little pig, not even born in America, get her out
      Kirstie Alley - fat has been, 'nough said
      Melissa R whatever - never been, 'nough said

      If you want to insult them, they're all ewwwww!

    Kirstie does deserve to come back she did well and lost weight, the other one has no dancing talent and I heard gained weight, meaning she didn't work hard enough, but that is what that family does pay me and I will do as little as I can to earn it.

    DWTS is now the bad habit to be dropped. Bristol Palin returning is more about the deal brokered between ABC/Disney (so don't be surprised if Disney creates a show just for her) and the cable network that is running her soon-to-be-but-not-soon-enough "Life's a Tripp"...which leads into why I won't vote to bring back Kyle (professional legal reasons): remember the reality show that was to star the Massey brothers and Bristol? Well...the Massey brothers were cut out at the last minute (but really -who didn't see that coming? This was NOT Disney) and now they are suing the producers of the show. If I were Kyle's manager, I wouldn't want him near Palin in that environment -let her go to Vegas and PAY to see him perform in the DWTS show .

    How can Bristol dare say that reality TV is not her family's business -like her mother, she's gotten used to biting the hand that feeds her.

    I don't mind Bristol coming back but I hate controversial stars. I'm glad there are no Osmonds...THAT would be the deal breaker. I wouldn't watch if Donny or Marie were on.

    I just wish they'd have picked someone else. Luckily, they've changed the scoring so that the mobs of fans don't pick who wins each week.

    Yes. I'm a lame. I still watch the show...but...at the end, it's usually very good. Can't wait to see Kirstie Alley.

    Why couldn't they have brought back Mel B? Or did they pick by the star the person danced with originally?

    Bristol Palin is no star.

    ABC sees an appeal in there somewhere ... but they seem to be ignoring the number of people willing to click away just to avoid having to see Palin. So attract 5, lose 20. The math doesn't work.

    DWTS has jumped the shark. Welcome to your lowest ratings ever. I realize that Bristol is an inspiration to teenage girls in the U.S. – "Get pregnant, get famous, get rich." But still, watching a guernsey cow clop across the stage, and knowing the votes came from political web site campaigns, isn't reason enough to nauseate millions of viewers.

    Palin says this isn't her family business, but it looks like it's the best they can do. Her current "job" (reality show) bombed big time. Bristol does not have the talent, brains, or the personality to carry a show. Nobody in the family has a real job nor or they educated. Bristol needs to get an education and do something with her life instead of chasing the camera (and, by the way, she is the first to accuse others of being star struck!). Tripp needs to be adopted out to a stable family who will see that he gets an education and has the proper values in life.

      The Palins have done a lot to harm a lot of people. Evidently you don't read. Sarah is the queen of false accusations and twisting the facts. She has been fact-checked many, many times over the last few years. She says what the "thinks" but that it is not necessarily the truth. And please tell me about the educational level of the Palin family. None of them are educated and they do not llike people who are. They call them "elitists." Sarah is the only one who went to college, but it took her six years to get a very, very, easy degree in journalism. Why can't she form a sentence or write with a degree in journalism?? All of her material as governor has written for her and now she hides behind Facebook with a ghost writer. What rock have you been under?

You don't like what's going on in the world? Go campaign for the party of your choice, volunteer, do something nice for someone else, debate honorably and respectfully. How easy to hide behind your computers and attack strangers with such hateful vehemence. Grow up, get a life and make a difference. And we wonder why children are so screwed up… look at all these "adult" role models. Pathetic and unfortunately all too common.

    why must DWTS cast Bristol Palin again???? she's a politician's daughter NOT a celebrity! this is 'Dancing With the Stars" NOT "Dancing With Politician's Daughters/Nobody's"! DWTS needs to get back to casting actual celebs, not casting people like Bristol who's only claim to fame is their association to someone whom the media has splashed all over the media. i don't care whether or not Bristol can dance – i just want DWTS to stop casting nobody's.

    I agree with you Sarabeth. What gets to me is they seem to have brought back people based on reaction to those people by the viewers and the drama it will create. Rather, I would like to see good dancing and improving dancing skills, that is what the show started as. I was hoping for the best of the best of the non winners, now that I would have tuned in for. I will not be watching because I resent dwts trying to manipulate their viewers just to get ratings. Maybe I will come back the next season, I don't know.

    Viewer's choice? I don't know who those people are. And why is Bristol Palin considered a star? She is famous for being a pregnant teenager. At least Paris Hilton made a video of her immoral acts.

      Bristol is a star because she is a republican AND that makes her worth 1,000,000 lazy demonrats, we are so gonna win in Nov. Like we did in 2010 in the house, hahaha, dems = losers. Odumbo = Bad economy,

    I think the choices are mostly okay. There are champions, good dancer and then there's Bristol Palin. I didn't understand her the first time and I don't understand her this one.

      I totally agree "A"! ABC took a great idea and destroyed it by adding Bristol Palin to the cast! DWTS is NOT the place for politics especially during an election cycle. Maybe they didn't notice but the last time they cast Bristol in a political season it started a drastic downhill slide for their ratings. I was so excited for this season, now I will not watch until tea party shill Palin is gone!

      And of course those commenting on Kirstie's weight battle have abs of steel, perfect BMI and do not take any medications from ailments associated with the western lifestyle. Until you walk in an overweight person's shoes, I don't know why you feel free comment on her "addiction". It is her battle, she knows it and does not need more negative comments directed at her.

    DWTS: How could you do this to your loyal fans?? I have been a fan from the start, but I am boycotting the show until Bristol Palin is gone, and I may stop watching completetly. The new format is a terrible disappointment and I'm quite sure it will fail!!

      Let's talk about the "Red Elephant" in the room? Her placement on DWTS has nothing to do with Dancing or Star quality any more now than it did the first time she appeared on the show. It's all about politics and this is the one place it doesn't belong. Boycott the show, Macy's and any other advertiser of the show. Stop giving her and the political party she is associated with free publicity by mentioning her name, she is just tool as her mother was the last election year. Remember the saying;"there is no such thing as bad publicity?" Stop feeding the "Red Elephant" in the ballroom if you must be heard then write the producer's of the show and advertisers and flood their mail rooms with your outrage and promise of a Boycott. The silence will be heard loudly. But if you must tweet or facebook about the subject mention the names of the people whose careers you really want to boost a lot! While when referring to the other young lady, as; "she," "her," or "someone who dances like my beloved Aunt Betty... bless her heart." If someone doesn't know what you're talking about at first.... they'll figure it out!!

    REALLY!!!...Palin, Anderson, Rycroft. Give us a break. Give others a chance, these wanna be's are all washed up. In my opinion, this is not good for the show. Been there done that with these 3. Sucked before will suck again. Ratings may slip if you don't watch out.

    Her mother did tell New York Magazine's Vulture that the family takes part in reality TV because it's part of their "family's mantra," to "live life vibrantly," but Bristol's cautioned that reality TV isn't their bread and butter.
    ----------------------

    LOL! You got that right, Bristol. Your whole family's bread and butter comes from being grifters and hate mongers!

    The only reason "Briskit Palin" and her brain dead mother are coming back is for the $$$. They have become irrelevant and are desperate for more media attention.

    Why not bring back 12 or 13 of past seasons winners; the best of the best? Some of the people named for this season appear to have been picked to boost ratings based on who they are, not their dancing ability.
