‘Dancing with the Stars’ 2011: Snooki, Queen Latifah and more ‘on board’

Is this the cast?

This fall’s “Dancing with the Stars” season 13 looks like it is actually going to make good on a promise — getting some relatively big names in the cast.

We have already heard that Kim Kardashian’s brother Rob is one of the people set to strap on some ballroom shoes and don the all-familiar sequins, and now TMZ is reporting that “Jersey Shore’s” Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, actress Queen Latifah, and former “Saved By the Bell” star Tiffani Amber Thiessen will all be a part of the cast for the coming season premiering on September 19.

There are still a major problem with a report — representatives for both Snooki and Thiessen have denied casting rumors (even though this may just be to cover their tracks until the official announcement is made). If this does turn out to be true, we could ultimately have our most exciting (and entertaining) version of the show in quite a while. How long will it take Snooki before she tries to fist-pump on the floor?

If this turns out to be part of the “Dancing with the Stars” cast, how happy will you be? (Update: Zap2It is reporting that Kristin Cavallari is now the newest rumored name for the cast.)
