I've been on hiatus for awhile, but just like Dancing with the Stars -- we're back, baby.
And this season, which starts tonight at 7, stars the one and only Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. And, personally, I can't wait. Cuban's a hoot. A regular guy with a big, fat wallet.
And I wouldn't be surprised if he can dance -- though he tells a certain competitor newspaper that he's gonna bust out into a white man's overbite at the first opportunity. We'll see.
On his blog, Cuban answers the question of why a billionaire would suit up in "Ricky Ricardo" outfits and dance on national television. I never would've asked. Why not? I'm just hoping that Dirk turns up in the studio audience and starts yelling at the judges. Here's Cube talking to TMZ cameras about his chances. He trash talks Dirk and Stackhouse and their ability to dance. (Also of note: Cuban recently had hip replacement surgery, which could hurt his chances. But he did teach disco at sorority houses while in college. Who knew?)
In other DWTS news ... hostess and super hottie Samantha Harris had her baby yesterday, which means she probably won't be on for much of the season. I, for one, am very sad. But congrats on the baby girl.
