New "Dancing With the Stars" rumors say Leah Remini, Valerie Harper, and the Jersey Shore's Nicole Polizzi will all appear on the next season of the dance reality show.
"Dancing With the Stars" will reveal its official cast next week, but leading up to that point, several rumors have spread about a number of celebrities who will be appearing on the show. One of the most surprising revelations is Nicole Polizzi, former "Jersey Shore" cast member better known as "Snooki," who has already signed a contract according to Star magazine. Polizzi has said in the past that she would be willing to take on the dance reality show.
"I feel like I'm a good dancer. I've got this new body. I would do it in a heartbeat!" the new mother said in March according to Fox news.
Leah Remini, the former actress in "King of Queens" who recently spoke out against the Church of Scientology is also expected to join the cast according to Extra. And on Wednesday, TMZ reported that former "Mary Tyler Moore" actress Valerie Harper would also hop on board. Harper, 74, has been suffering from terminal brain cancer. She was given until June to live, but is "doing so well" that she has plans to join the show, TMZ said.
"Glee's" Amber Riiley may also join the cast after returning for a one-time episode on the hit musical to honor Corey Monteith, who died last month of an apparent drug overdose. Riley could be joined by Jack Osbourne of the infamous Osbourne family and "Voice" correspondent Christina Milan, according to E! News.
E! also predicted that former "Saved by the Bell" actress Elizabeth Berkley may also appear as a new cast member on the show in addition to former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson.
ABC would not confirm whether any of the rumors are true.
"We don't comment on casting rumors, but tune in to Good Morning America on Sept. 4 for the official reveal," the station said in a statement.
