Donald Trump‘s ex-wife will be dancing with the stars.
Marla Maples — who was famously married to the Republican presidential frontrunner in the 1990s — leads a cast that also includes FULLER HOUSE actress Jodie Sweetin, former NFL star Doug Flutie, journalist Geraldo Riviera and FACTS OF LIFE alum Kim Fields.
“Marla’s someone we’ve been talking to a lot,” executive producer Rob Wade tells USA Today. “She is a very interesting woman. The fact that Mr. Trump is very newsworthy at the moment was something that attracted us.”
The 22nd season of ABC’s ballroom dance competition will include many familiar themes: Disney week, switch up week and latin week. But it will not feature dancer Derek Hough or sister Julianne Hough, who served as a temporary judge last fall.
Len Goodman is set to return.
The complete list of 12 celebrity dancers and partners includes:
Mischa Barton with Artem Chigvintsev
Antonio Brown with Sharna Burgess
Nyle DiMarco with Peta Murgatroyd
Kim Fields with Sasha Farber
Doug Flutie with Karina Smirnoff
Marla Maples with Tony Dovolani
Von Miller with Witney Carson
Wanya Morris with Lindsay Arnold
Geraldo Rivera with Edyta Sliwinska
Jodie Sweetin with Keo Motsepe
Paige VanZant with Mark Ballas
Ginger Zee with Valentin Chmerkovskiy
