The cast for Dancing With the Stars‘ 11th season has been announced, and with Dancmstr Annie Barrett, our resident expert on all things fringe and sequins, on vacation, it falls to me to lament the fact that no one in her dream cast made the cut. Okay, maybe some of them were asked and turned it down. We don’t know. But for the sake of a blog post on a show with a mirrorball trophy, we’re using the term “snub” loosely. Which omission from the cast leaves you feeling the opposite of Bruno after a sexy someone just danced a steamy rumba? (Or, to be more clear, wanting to echo the sentiment Joan Rivers expressed to E! Online about not being the season’s “old lady”: “They’ve never asked me, so they can go f–k themselves!”)

To recap Annie’s dream cast: Elizabeth Berkley, Brian Austin Green, Lindsay Lohan, Leonard Nimoy, Charles Barkley, Danielle Staub, Tila Tequila, Kara DioGuardi, Betty White, and Deadliest Catch‘s Sig Hansen (we blame king crab season). I think she aimed too high.
