If you're sick of beach volleyball star Misty May-Treanor, don't tune into ABC anytime soon. She will be starring in the cast of "Dancing with the Stars," set to premiere on September 22. May-Treanor never mentioned this during her numerous interviews on NBC. I'm sure that she didn't talk about it because the deal wasn't finalized, not that NBC wouldn't let someone talk about ventures on other networks. Right, NBC?

How will she perform? Coming off of nightly primetime appearances, she will have the all-important fanbase in place. Though athletes have done well on DWTS in the past, she will only have a few weeks to prepare. Her service defense won't really impress the judges, and she may find out one of the tough realities that faced other Olympians: judging isn't always fair. Can she add the mirror ball trophy to two Olympic gold medals? Tune in to find out.
