The cast for Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars has been revealed and it looks like it’s going to be some ice-cold competition (pun intended).

On Tuesday morning, ABC announced the contestants on Good Morning America and confirmed that Amber Rose, Babyface and Vanilla Ice will be among the celebrities fighting for the mirror gold trophy.

Rose will be partnered with pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Ice will dance alongside Witney Carson and Babyface will show off his moves with dancer Allison Holker.

It’s also been confirmed that Olympian Ryan Lochte will compete in the upcoming season of the dancing competition show. The announcement of Ryan’s involvement comes on the heels of his Rio scandal.

“It’s been—the past 2 weeks have been the lowest point of my life … Fans, my family, my friends have all been really positive, keeping me going…I want to put that behind me. I’m never one to dwell on the past,” he said on GMA. “I just want to move forward … Everyone’s got to be sick and tired of hearing about this, I know I am. I just want to move forward and…put on my dancing shoes. At least try to.”

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
