Dancing with the Stars
What do an old-school stoner, a '90s sitcom star, a YouTube celebrity and an Olympic athlete have in common? They're all competing on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars.
Officially announced on Good Morning America Thursday, the new cast of ABC's long-running dancing competition will include Cheech & Chong's Tommy Chong, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum Alfonso Ribeiro, teen fashion expert Bethany Mota and track and field star Lolo Jones.

This helped me learn a lot about myself and how to cope and put yourself in situations and manage it as an adult and without family and friends. I know it helped me grow."
