Kathy Ireland 1 560x386

Kathy Ireland (Gallery Below) will appear on the next season of Dancing with the Stars as announced on Good Morning America this morning. The USA Today reached Kathy for comment, “You gotta face your fears. When you’re afraid of a challenge, you just have to go for it. For me, this is the ultimate challenge. Walking in high heels is an extreme sport.”

Kathy has done some other things, but this is what she is most known for (Wiki) :

Starting in 1984, Ireland was featured in the annual Swimsuit Issue 13 consecutive years, before her final appearance in 1996. In addition to her long tenure within the pages, Ireland appeared on the cover of the annual issue three times, a feat tied by Christie Brinkley and Cheryl Tiegs and surpassed only by Elle Macpherson (with six or more appearances). Ireland was the cover model for the first time on the 25th Anniversary Swimsuit Edition, which became SI’s best selling swimsuit issue to date. She returned to the cover in 1992 and in 1994.
