Everyone’s favorite dancing show has started its 13th season, but the list of scheduled celebrities looks more like a hospital admit list than a lineup for a show requiring a substantial amount of athletic activity. What’s ailing the stars of this season’s “Dancing with the Stars?”
— David Arquette: Spent time in rehab earlier this year for drug and alcohol treatment after his marriage to Courtney Cox crumbled.
— Ron Artest: Known for eccentric behavior, including having a warrant out for unpaid parking tickets, wishing to change his name to Metta World Peace, and drinking cognac during half-time in his rookie year with the Chicago Bulls.
— Nancy Grace: Became pregnant through fertility treatments, then had a very difficult pregnancy, which required an emergency C-section. Her children were born two months early.
