The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars premieres tonight on ABC as eleven celebrities will step into the ballroom vying for that Mirror Ball trophy.

The celebs this season include Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio, Sugar Ray Leonard, talk show host Wendy Williams, and Kendra Wilkinson.

Kendra, who is the early on favorite to win, reveals her strategy to win this season will be to show off some skin! “If I’m going to go skimpy, I’m going skimpiest,” said Kendra to Extra, adding that her hubby Hank Baskett does not mind. “He’s like, ‘If you’re going to do this, go all in, and don’t be shy about anything.’”

Kendra also reveals she experienced her first injury when she hurt her toe while rehearsing with partner Louis Van Amstel. “I wasn’t wearing my closed-toe ballroom shoes. I was wearing the cha-cha shoes, and I jammed my freakin’ toe in his foot. It hurt really bad.” She added, “No pain, no gain, right?”

Meanwhile, dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy reveals he and his celeb partner Kirstie are actually working well together. “Her strengths are that she wants to do it. She just wants to dance. Sometimes I think she forgets what we are doing,” Maksim dished to In Touch Weekly “I’m like, ‘It’s a show!’ and she’s like, ‘no, just teach me [the steps], I want to dance!’”

The 11 celebrities will either dance the foxtrot or the cha cha cha tonight while the first elimination won’t take place until Tuesday, March 29.

The DWTS two-hour premiere kicks off at 8/7c.

Days after announcing the celebrity-star pairings, ABC has now unveiled the official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 12.

Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louis van 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.

Following weeks of rumors, ABC officially unveiled the new cast of Dancing with the Stars on Monday night.

The upcoming 10th season will have 11 “stars” vying for the coveted mirror ball trophy. Above is a photo of ten of the stars which included the more notable Kirstie Alley, Kendra Wilkinson and Wendy Williams.

The other stars included Ralph Macchio – the original “Karate Kid”, hall of fame boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, NFL player Hines Ward, professional wrestler Chris Jericho, Disney actress Chelsea Kane, actor/host Mike Catherwood, and rapper Romeo, who’s dad Master P was part of the show’s second season in 2005. Missing from the above photo is model Petra Nemcova.

And missing from the cast all together is Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell, who revealed she was contemplating doing the show after being asked. Christine would have been equivalent to last season’s Bristol Palin or perhaps season 8′s Kate Gosselin aka the controversial “star” this season seems to be lacking.

Meanwhile, TMZ revealed some of the stars/pro dancer pairs yesterday. Those are below -

Brad Womack left many fans puzzled on The Bachelor last week when he refused to kiss one of his final 4 contestants, Emily Maynard.

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.”

With the third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta winding down, Nene Leakes continues to run her mouth speak her mind.

Appearing on the Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday, Nene discussed her “divorce,” her plans to “quit” the RHOA, while also slamming once again her Celebrity Apprentice costar Star Jones.

When it comes to her divorce with Gregg Leakes, Nene told Wendy: “The divorce is pending. I did file for divorce. My happiness is everything.” Perhaps the divorce is really happening this time as Nene also revealed Gregg “actually just moved out.”

Nene was also asked about wanting to leave the RHOA after the current season, during which Wendy brought up Kim Zolciak’s comments stating Nene can’t leave the Bravo hit show because they’re all under contract. NeNe responded, “Contracts can be broken.”

And finally, when it comes to her upcoming appearance on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, NeNe denied rumors that stated she was acting like a diva on the set. “Everybody has to be there at a certain time so that’s not possible,” Nene quipped.

When asked about her relationship with fellow Apprentice star Star Jones, Nene did not mince her words! “I’m not feeling Star Jones. I gave her a chance when she got there, but Star is a trip. She’s very special. I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire,” said Nene.

Star’s response? A twitter follower asked her what she thinks of NeNe, Star replied, “I don’t.” Star also made the following tweets within the past 24 hours -

“Lesson learned long ago: “Never get into a PIG fight…because 3 things happen: You get tired, you get dirty and only the pig has fun!”

“Ignorance in pretty clothes and high heeled shoes is still ignorance…“There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.””

Below is an NBC promo of Nene on Celebrity Apprentice, which premieres March 6. Part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo.
