Her relationship with Jon may have ended -- but Kate Gosselin's reality career is just getting started.

Gosselin will strut her stuff on "Dancing With the Stars" alongside celebrities including Pamela Anderson, Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger, Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek, "Bachelor" star Jake Pavelka and ESPN commentator Erin Andrews, ABC announced Monday night.

NFL player Chad Ochocinco, soap opera actor Aiden Turner, "Beverly Hills: 90210" star Shannen Doherty, diva Niecy Nash and moon-walker Buzz Aldrin will also vie for the title on the ABC reality hit, according to the network.

On the women's side, Anderson is best known for her role as a "Baywatch" babe, while Andrews has made headlines over the past year for a stalking scandal that saw a man tape her through a peephole in her hotel room.

Gosselin, Nash and Pavelka shot to fame on reality TV, Gosselin as the controversial mom of sextuplets and twins on "Jon and Kate Plus Eight" and Nash as host on home-organizational show "Clean House."

Pavelka became a household name as the star of "The Bachelor," which ended Monday immediately before the "DWTS" cast was announced, as Pavelka gave the final rose -- and a proposal -- to Vienna Girardi.

Doherty also became a part of TV history as one of the stars on "Beverly Hills: 90210" and has since acted on TV shows like the witchy "Charmed."

Athletes on this year's show include the Cincinnati Bengals' Ochocinco and Olympic gold-medal figure skater Evan Lysacek, who took home his hardware at this year's Vancouver Games.

Scherzinger is the lone musician on this year's program, representing girl group the Pussycat Dolls.

Host Tom Bergeron, who made the announcement with ex-"Bachelor" and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Melissa Rycroft, will resume his duties emceeing the program.
