Ricki Lake Has to "Be Careful" About DWTS Weight Loss
Who's gonna grab that mirrorball trophy this time around?
The season-13 contestants of Dancing with the Stars were announced on Monday -- and Us Weekly caught up with the wide-ranging roster of celeb contestants about their goals, their pre-show freakouts and more!
Actress, TV host Ricki Lake:
"I fell in love last year ... I didn't gain a LOT of weight but I feel like I could lose about 15 pounds. I'm going to be careful. It's going to be weird, because having dealt with weight issues my whole life and you think depravation, starving yourself - but I can't do that if I'm dancing six hours a day. I'm just going to be really consious of it. For the first time it won't be about the pounds, it'll be about strength and my body. I'm up for the challenge."
Reality star Kristin Cavallari:
"I'm not doing it to get revenge! I just wanted to do it to have fun. You get in great shape, when else will I learn to dance like this? I'll grow so much as a person and so many great things will happen."
TV host, lawyer Nancy Grace:
"I want to have fun. Ever since my fiance was killed in '79, my whole life has been about putting bad guys away, going to law school, making law review, trying cases, representing crime victims - and this is such a departure, to get to dress up in crazy outfits and dance. Are you kidding me?!"
Actor David Arquette:
"My daughter Coco is a little worried I'll embarrass her, and I'm sure I will...But ultimately I think she'll be excited to see me perform and I look forward to when maybe she gets past the embarrassment, maybe she'll want to learn a few moves with me! I'd love to dance with her and have her be a part of this."
LGBT activist and author Chaz Bono:
"I want people to know that transgender people are just like everyone else. We're not people to be afraid of or misunderstood. I would love to get that message across...I'm always serious. I've written three books, I lecture, it's all serious stuff. But now I get to show that I'm a fun guy too!"
Model, actress Elisabetta Canalis:
"I am taking English lessons in the morning and dance lessons in the afternoon! I hope that...I'm just grateful for the fact that I'm here. And they say this TV program is one of the most viewed in the country. So it's big chance for me!"
