No Gay Partner For Dancing Bass

After months of speculation and nearly catastrophic anticipation, ABC today announced its latest Dancing With The Stars line-up. And, yes, homosexual pop star Lance Bass will be among the jitter bugs, which includes Kim Kardashian, celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito, some Olympians and others.

Those of you who wanted Bass to have a same-sex dance partner will be sorely disappointed: he’s cha-chaing with a lady named Lacey Schwimmer.

See the entire list after the jump…

• Toni Braxton, singer, 40, and season one DWTS champ Alec Mazo
• Lance Bass, singer, 29, and Lacey Schwimmer
• Ted McGinley, actor, 50, and Inna Brayer
• Cloris Leachman, actress, 82, and Corky Ballas
• Warren Sapp, former NFL star, 35, and Kym Johnson
• Rocco DiSpirito, chef, 41, and Karina Smirnoff
• Kim Kardashian, TV personality, 27, and reigning DWTS champ Mark Ballas
• Maurice Green, Olympic gold medalist track and field star, 34, and two-time DWTS champ Cheryl Burke
• Misty May-Treanor, Olympic gold medalist beach volleyball player, 31, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
• Susan Lucci, Emmy-award winning soap opera actress, 61, and Tony Dovolani
• Jeffrey Ross, 42, comedian, and Edyta Sliwinska
• Cody Linley, 18, actor, and two-time DWTS champ Julianne Hough
• Brooke Burke, 36, TV personality, and Derek Hough

      Lacey was a finalist on So You Can Think You Can Dance a couple seasons ago. And she is the sister or cousin of Benji Schwimmer who won three seasons ago.

      I do wonder if the powers that be at DWTS will be acknowledging that Lacey Scwhimmer is not only younger sister of SYTYCD #2 champion Benji Schwimmer and cousin to David Schwimmer, but finished in the top four of SYTYCD #3…

      Oh is THAT who she is… I thought the name was familiar but couldn’t quite place her.

      Well… gays have been dancing with women for aeons. It’s no big whoop.

      But damn would I fuck that Mark Ballas… I worked with his father Corky once, you know.

      Wow, how exciting……a gay, bloated ex-boybander – but he’ll probably last a week or two longer than the whore Kardashian – since when does a fuck tape make you a “star”???

      Surely there had to be one or two less reprehensible attention-seeking whores better than what they got for this season?

      Seems like standard DWTS fare. Good to see Maksim back! Amazing dancer, amazing body, amazing face, and amazing personality! Woot!

      Oh and “No. 4 – CANDY”, anger issues much?

      Siiigh, I Long for the day when somebody comes out while their carreers are still hot and not after they’ve faded…or had to be dragged out..like Bass. Portia Di Rossi is the last one I can think of who came out while she was still on a TV series. Come on gay Hollywood where are you? A Community as large as ours cannot just have Lance Bass, Elton John, and George Michael as our only representitive of Gay Maledome…. (Yes, I know Neil Patric Harris is out, but again, he was dragged out by the blogs)

      I’m concerned about the picture. Who’s going to save our children from that terrible homosexual?

      Oh and Lance Bass too?

      Good for sistergirl, Who’s gonna lead?

      I’d contest that Neil Patrick Harris came out, and still has a hot career.

      Ah well. At least he’s on there :D
      To be fair it’d probably be difficult to find a male partner that he could lift/could lift him so that they wouldn’t be at a disadvantage when it came to flashy moves and things.

      …Rocco DiSpirito? Odd.

      dancing with the homophobic stars is probably a beter title for this series…
