Vivica A. Fox confirms she’s on Dancing with the Stars 3; Mario “Slater” Lopez and Harry Hamlin rumored

Vivica A. Fox confirmed with People magazine that she’ll be one of the celebrity dancers on Dancing with the Stars 3, which airs this fall.

“I’m so excited. I start training for that in July. It’s a wonderful opportunity for me to get paid, get in shape, work some outfits and represent for the sistas. Drop it like it’s hot!” she told the magazine.

Citing an Us Weekly report, The New York Post reports that Harry Hamlin and Mario Lopez (yes, Slater), are also possible participants. Hamlin “reportedly lobbied hard to get on the show after he saw how caught up his wife [Lisa Rinna] became in the competition,” according to the paper.

All of the stars who sign up will reportedly be paid $125,000 for the show’s first two weeks, and $20,000 for every week they last beyond that.
