Dancing With The Stars’ Competitors Ready To Hit The Floor

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Sopranos star Vincent Pastore may not have had the right moves for this season of Dancing With The Stars, but his former competitors are ready to strut their stuff come March 19.

Heather Mills tells Extra that she has a leg up on the competition – despite having an artificial limb – and says that partner Jonathan Roberts is “quite pleased because of my fitness, I’m quite flexible.”

Competitor and former Extra host Leeza Gibbons is turning 50 during the first week of the show, but she’s not letting that affect her moves on the dance floor.

As she puts it, “I want to be fearless at 50.”

Meanwhile, 90210 alum Ian Ziering realizes he has lots of hard work ahead of him, but he’s confident in his partner, two-time winner Cheryl Burke. As he points out, “I have a lot to learn. I have a long road ahead of me and it starts on step at a time.”

And former ‘NSync singer Joey Fatone hopes his moves are in sync with his partner – if his shoes don’t get to him first.

Says Fatone: “These shoes that I have to wear are Latin shoes that have a heel and it is very thin and it hurts!”

Dancing With The Stars premieres March 19 on ABC.
