Kathy Hilton could jump to new career heights on DWTS

If Sarah Palin's daughter could compete on "Dancing With the Stars," why not Lindsay Lohan's mother? That's the apparent logic behind rumors that Dina Lohan is in talks with DWTS producers to fandango her way to fame.

Known primarily as a pushy stage mom to daughters Lindsay and Ali, the former Long Island housewife may be eager to erase memories of her low-rated reality TV program "Living Lohan" and kick up her heels on a reliable top-10 hit. Lohan's claims to have been a Rockette will probably not disqualify her since the New York Post reported that Radio City Music Hall staff could find no evidence she ever danced with their leggy ladies.

While the prospect of a dancing Dina is fun to ponder, we wondered what other moms of famous celebrities DWTS could cast. Here are a few of our top picks:

Kate Hudson's Mom: Goldie Hawn

Goldie Hawn was a famous actress long before daughter Kate Hudson hit the scene, but in recent years the "Cactus Flower" star has been a wall flower who has not made a movie since her 2002 dud, "The Banger Sisters." Though she may be returning to TV in HBO's "The Viagra Diaries," a season on DWTS could also give the bubbly blonde's career a lift.

Paris Hilton's Mom: Kathy Hilton

Paris Hilton's mom Kathy was a finalist to replace Eve Plumb as Jan Brady on the 70's hit series, "The Brady Bunch," but she lost out to a child actress named Geri Reischl. Though she had bit roles in such baby boomer TV classics as "Bewitched" and "Family Affair," as an adult the hotel heiress has taken a back seat not only to party girl daughter Paris, but also her two half-sisters, Kim and Kyle Richards, who became famous for their cat fights on last year's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." A stint on DWTS could catapult Kathy Hilton's career to greater heights.

Bristol Palin's Mom: Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin may have pretended to be a proud backstage mama when daughter Bristol appeared on DWTS last year, but deep down we knew she wanted to be the one twirling on center stage. A clothes horse who went on a shopping spree with campaign donors' money when she ran for vice president, Palin would love the gorgeous costumes she could wear on DWTS. And learning choreography should be no more difficult than remembering who Paul Revere warned on his midnight ride.
