She's so excited.

I'm a huge fan of reality TV. I've always been a people-watcher and these reality shows get me everytime.

Well, last night came the big announcement of the new Dancing With The Stars cast and my little one is beyond excited.

Why is an 8 year old girl so excited you ask?

Because her all-time favorite athlete is going to put her dancing shoes on this season.....

It's Shawn Johnson!!

For those of you who don't recognize the name, she was on the US Women's Gymnastics Team competing in China last summer. She's only 17 and will be the youngest ever to compete on this show. I hope they'll be gentle with her.

Some of the other contestants on this season of Dancing With The Stars are:

Lil' Kim (a rapper)

Jewel and her hubby Ty Murray (singer & rodeo cowboy)

Steve-O (TV personality?)

Nancy O'Dell (Access Hollywood)

Lawrence Taylor (football player?)

Chuck Wicks (country singer & Julienne's boyfriend)

Gilles Marini (??)

Denise Richards (should have known she'd find a way to get on tv)

Steve Wozniak (no idea.)(just found out, co-founder of apple. thanks, Tarah.)

Belinda Carlisle (The Gogo's - hope she has The Beat, hehe)

David Allen Grier (Comedian)

I think I covered everybody. Looks like it's going to be a pretty good season.

Time will tell. What about you? Are you a fan of DWTS?

If so, who's your favorite this time?

Wow! That makes me want to watch this show even more now. I hope she does well cause she sure is a cute little thing!
Dont feel too bad about missing this past blissdom. It was great but just think ... you can go next year and I bet it will be even better. I know when I go next year I will leave all of my nerves and jitters at home. We all had them and after a few hours of giggles we all felt like family. So ya see there. Its good that you waited cause now when you go next year you will know to leave those darn jitters at home and just bring your smile. I cant wait to meet ya~
