Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louisvan Amstel. According to numerous reports, Kendra, 25, is the favorite to win the show.
Meanwhile, 60-year-old actress Kirstie Alley is hoping to use the show as a weight loss vehicle. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” the former Jenny Craig spokesperson told US Magazine this week. “And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work. It’s exciting.”
That should no problem for Kirstie, who is paired with hotness/tough hard-ass teacher Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars will officially kick off on March 21.

Brad eventually kissed Emily after she heavily persuaded him to. In his latest blog for PEOPLE magazine, Brad attempts to explain his side -
“One last thing … I want to explain why I didn’t kiss Emily while sitting on her couch. It’s no secret that I’m brand new to a lot of this. I’ve never dated a woman with a daughter before so I don’t know proper etiquette in that situation. All I know is this, I wanted to kiss Emily every second I was around her, but my very first concern was showing her daughter respect (as well as Emily). I realize it makes me look like a weird and awkward guy around Emily, but that’s anything but the case. Again, my first concern was her daughter.”
According to the rumor mill, talk show host Wendy Williams, 46, and Kendra Wilkinson, 26, are a done deal. While ABC has reportedly been in serious talks with Kristie Alley, 60, and trying to woo NFL Player Brett Favre, 41. Christine O’Donnell, popular tea party candidate, also admitted ABC has invited her to do the show. No word yet on whether Christine accepted.
