Gina Wilhelm Actress – Dancing with the Stars Season 11 Partners
Veteran stage and screen actress Florence Henderson, probably best known for her work on “The Brady Bunch,” but who also starred in “South Pacific” at Lincoln Center, will be on the top show.
The other female contestants are comedienne Margaret Cho, reality star and Carl’s Jr. spokeswoman Audrina Partridge, and gubernatorial daughter Bristol Palin.
The men are represented by actor David Hasselhoff, the former star of “Knight Rider,” and Kyle Massey, star of Disney Channel series “That’s So Raven” and “Cory in the House.”
Also competing for the men are singer Michael Bolton, retired football player Kurt Warner, retired basketball player Rick Fox, and reality star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of “Jersey Shore.”
The partners are expected to be announced on Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America.”
Putting together the cast and their partners has been “like putting together the most bizarre and yet entertaining kind of dinner party,” explained senior producer and head of casting Deena Katz.
It has been rumored that Partridge would be partnered with Tony Dovolani because of his height, but she pointed out that Maksim Chmerkovskiy is also tall.
Bristol Palin has confirmed that her dancing partner was Mark Ballas, while professional dancer Edyta Sliwinska confirmed that she would not return to the show this season.
