Shanna Moakler has a new partner – dance partner, that is. The Meet the Barkers star, whose split from husband Travis Barker was announced recently, will compete with pro dancer Jesse DeSoto against other celeb/dancer pairs on the third season of Dancing with the Stars, ABC said Monday.

The show, which kicks off with a two-hour season premiere on Sept. 12, will also feature actor Harry Hamlin (husband of Dancing season-two alum Lisa Rinna), Kill Bill star Vivica A. Fox and Saved by the Bell actor Mario Lopez.

Other celebs who will compete for a mirror-ball trophy include MSNBC news anchor Tucker Carlson, talk-show host Jerry Springer, Monique Coleman from the Disney Channel’s High School Musical, country singer Sara Evans, pop star Willa Ford, onetime teen idol Joe (formerly Joey) Lawrence and NFL champ Emmitt Smith.

Also returning as judges are former ballroom dancer Len Goodman and dancer-choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Previous Dancing with the Stars winners include Drew Lachey, who earned first place with partner Cheryl Burke in February, and season-one champ Kelly Monaco, who later danced against runner-up John O’Hurley in a viewer-decided rematch (which O’Hurley won).
