Although the official announcement isn’t due until tonight, it looks like the new Dancing With the Stars season 13 cast list may have leaked online. We can’t absolutely verify the authenticity of this list, but it is the pretty standard mix of obscure, weird and WTH that we know and love. So it just might actually be all true!

The new Dancing with the Stars 2011 season 13 cast list was leaked online by @DWTSGossip on Twitter. The list confirms some already rumored DWTS season 13 cast members, including Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest and reality TV stars Ron Kardashian and Kristin Cavallari. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi from Jersey Shore was also rumored to be on this season, but her name does not appear on this list (thank the gods).

The full list of ‘celebrities’ for the new DWTS season is:

Nancy Grace
Kristin Cavalleri
Ricki Lake
Chynna Phillips
Hope Solis
Elizabetta Canalis
David Arquette
Rob Kardashian
Ryan O’Neal
J.R. Martinez
Chaz Bono
Ron Artest

Pros this season are listed by @DWTSGossip as: Tony, Derek, Mark, Val, Tristan, Maks, Cheryl, Kym, PETA, Karina, Lacey, Anna.

Nancy Grace? Really? Don’t I have to be tortured by this woman enough, now she is invading one of my favorite reality shows? Her presence on this list is really the one strong reason I hope it is false!

As for Chaz Bono (formerly Chastity Bono), he will hold a unique place in Dancing With the Stars history if he is indeed competing. He’ll be the first transgendered contestant and will reportedly compete with a female partner.

ABC will reveal the Dancing with the Stars 2011-2012 cast during Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor Pad. DWTS fans will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite star/pro pairings, which will be revealed on Wednesday’s Good Morning America. Dancing With the Stars 2011 season 13 premieres on September 19.
