The vacation week curse strikes Howard TV Executive Producer Doug Z. Goodstein. No, heâ€™s not dead but heâ€™s recovering after surgery today to repair a broken wrist suffered during a softball game against a team of dancers from Rickâ€™s Cabaret. â€œWe were supposed to play a simple softball game with the girls from Rickâ€™s Cabaret so who knew getting to second base with strippers would be so dangerous,â€ said Goodstein whoâ€™s also expecting a new baby any day now. Doug’s wife, Marlo, has been a great sport about the unfortunate injury and timing of the surgery so close to the birth of their son.
The stars for Season 9 were announced by Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron on Good Morning America.
Perhaps even more surprising than the sheer number of â€œstarsâ€ competing in this seasonsâ€™ competition (there are SIXTEEN â€œcelebrityâ€ dancers), were the names NOT included on the list of D-list stars, including Beth Ostrosky, better known to fans as Mrs. Howard Stern.
