Brooke Burke Charvet may not know who, exactly, will Cha-cha-cha across the "Dancing with the Stars" ballroom floor next season, but a girl can dream can't she?

"I haven't heard any rumors yet and we kick off in March," Brooke tells me. "I can understand them wanting to keep the Kardashian thing going [with Kris or Bruce Jenner]."

Brooke confesses she won't find out who will be on the show until they make the official announcement on ABC, but she does have a few suggestions.

"I have always said Oscar De La Hoya -- I don't know if he would ever do it -- because I think he would be a blast," Brooke dishes. "I think a quirky crazy one, because we always need one crazy, is Richard Simmons. I would love to see Suzanne Somers. She would be great."

Although Brooke says she is not involved in the formal selection process, she does note that over a bottle of wine at dinner with cast members, the group does make a great "wish" list that often gets the producer's attention.

And Brooke's quick to add that the show does like controversy, so you never know -- Rick Santorum are you listening?
