Though the official DWTS celebrity lineup won't be announced until Tuesday, Aug. 30 on Good Morning America, pro Mark Ballas previously sparked rumors Laurie will appear on the show with a tweet about the athlete. "I absolutely adore [Laurie] — just gorgeous. #StarPower #NeedADanceTeacher? #RioOlympics," he wrote in early August.

Since twirling around the dance floor with partner Alec Mazo — who left the show after Season 5 — Kelly has hosted the Miss USA Pageant and starred on the E! reality series Dirty Soap. In 2012, she returned to DWTS for a chance to win a second Mirror Ball Trophy in Season 15 but finished in third.
