ATLANTA, Ga. -- “Dancing with the Stars” pro Louis Van Amstel is reuniting with his former celebrity partner, comedian Margaret Cho, in Atlanta on the set of Season 3 of her hit Lifetime show “Drop Dead Diva,” Access Hollywood has learned exclusively. Louis joins previously announced Season 3 guest stars LeAnn Rimes, (new “Dancing” contender) Wendy Williams, Paula Abdul, Nick Zano and Mario Lopez.
This coming Monday, Louis and Margaret will tape a dance number for an episode entitled “The Wedding,” which will feature one of the main “Drop Dead Diva” characters walking down the aisle. In the episode, Teri Lee (Cho) has decided to give Grayson Kent (Jackson Hurst) the gift of learning how to dance for his upcoming big wedding, but Grayson seems to have two left feet. Louis will play the dance instructor Teri hires to help teach Grayson how to dance.
“Drop Dead Diva” returns to Lifetime this June. Brooke Elliott stars as series protagonist Jane Bingum, an aspiring model who is brought back to life as an overweight lawyer.
