With one of the most buzz-worthy casts in the show's history getting ready to put on their dancing shoes, a handful Dancing with the Stars
contestants have already found themselves in the spotlight.
Controversial contestant Chaz Bono
, 42, has already been in the middle of a war of words

HLN legal analyst Nancy Grace, 51, who's described herself as "Cinderella invited to the ball,"
was the subject of criticism
after her coverage of the Casey Anthony murder trial
earlier this summer.
Some fans will undoubtedly be tuning in to see if David Arquette'sestranged wife
Courteney Cox will be coming out to support him.

have an unfair advantage, since her former costar on The Hills
, Audrina Patridge
, a former DWTS
contestant, will be giving her tips
The fun begins Sept. 19 (8 p.m. ET), when all 12 season 13 contestants
hit the ballroom for the first night of competition.
