Dancing with the Stars Season 2 champ

Drew Lachey is staying in step, having signed on to host ABC's new midseason dance-off Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann. The show, to air this winter for a half-dozen episodes, has DWTS judges Tonioli and Inaba forming rival performance troupes that will face off in weekly song-and-dance battles. I'm rooting for the Jets, though I hear the Sharks could upset. Previously, the competition was called "Strategic Dance Occupation," but then Congress decided they weren't kidding any one. Auditions kick off Sept. 15 in Nashville. Visit MySpace.com/carrieannvsbruno for details.
