Here’s what’s being talked about in pop culture:

• The next season of “Dancing With the Stars” will feature Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill, more recent Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, singer Wynonna Judd, comics Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley, and something called a Lisa Vanderpump — which I always thought was a shoe the dancers wore (but, it says here, is someone from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”). [Vulture]

• The U.S. Senate’s investigation of how the makers of “Zero Dark Thirty” got their information has been called off — since the damage has already been done, by making sure the movie didn’t win any major Oscars. (Its one Oscar was for sound editing, and that was a tie.) [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Now former staffers of The Onion have issued a mock apology, making fun of The Onion’s apology for its offensive tweet mentioning 9-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis. More tail-chasing as it develops. [Laughspin]
