at . Comments

Yes, the former Vice President of the United States is "on the short list" of potential stars for the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, according to insiders close to the ABC reality TV series.

While no official names have been announced, celebrities rumored to be in talks to join the cast include Dan Quayle, Kim Kardashian and former boy bander Lance Bass. An official announcement will be made soon.

Quayle served as Vice President under George H.W. Bush from 1989-1993, and is best remembered for being, um, not smart. He incorrectly corrected spelling bee contestants' spelling of "potato" to "potatoe."

Season 7 of Dancing with the Stars premieres September 22.
