US women's goalkeeper Solo joins LA Lakers' Artest in Dancing With the Stars

USA women's national team goalkeeper Hope Solo is among the next lot of contests on 'Dancing With the Stars'.

The 30-year old shot-stopper will join LA Lakers forward Ron Artest and a host of TV celebrities for the 13th season of the programme but she has made it clear she won't be doing anything too raunchy.

"They asked me but I just don't feel comfortable wearing leotards and lingerie," Artest told the 'Max & Marcellus' show on ESPNLA 710.

"I'm afraid. I just don't want to be dancing and have a wedgie and have a Janet Jackson kind of mistake, now my bootie is all out. I just don't want that stuff. I can't dance. I like Prince but I don't want to wear the same clothes as Prince."

ESPN reported that 'Solo and Artest will be joined by reality TV stars Robert Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari and Chaz Bono; TV personalities Nancy Grace, Carson Kressley and Ricki Lake; singer-actress Chynna Phillips; actors David Arquette and J.R. Martinez; and Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis, who may be better-known in the United States for being actor George Clooney's ex-girlfriend, for the show's 13th season.'
