The full celebrity cast for season 13 of Dancing with the Stars is as follows:

David Arquette said he loves to dance and entertain so this should be the perfect opportunity for him to both at the same time. Ricki Lake has also played down how much help her musical theatre past will be as that was a long time ago.
“I was 18 years old, that was 1988, I was 200lb and I was faking it! I assure you, I do not have an edge here.”
Chaz Bono has confessed to being a little daunted, while Nancy Grace is just hoping to avoid falling on her booty.
So Jersey Shore Season 4 star Snooki was not lying. She is not taking part in the next season of “Dancing with the Stars.” But what do you think to the celebrities signed up for Season 13.
American football player Hines Ward won the last season of Dancing with the Stars with professional partner Kym Johnson earlier this year.
