Report: Holly Madison to Go Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

Seriously, does Dancing with the Stars purposely seek out contestants that have posed in Playboy?!?

Following the news that Jewel might miss the new season of the show due to tendinitis in her knee, Us Weekly is reporting that the competition has found a replacement: Holly Madison.

The singer, who has been the crown (pun alert!) jewel of ABC's advertising campaign so far - due to her and husband Ty Murray both competing on season eight - released a statement this week saying she'd suffered a "minor setback," but added: "Don't count me out, as I am in this for the long run."

If Madison does replace Jewel on next week's premiere, she will:

  • Be paired with Dmitry Chaplin;
  • Become the latest contestant with a Playboy past, following in the nude footsteps of Brooke Burke, Kim Kardashian, Lisa Rinna, Denise Richards and Belinda Carlisle. Sheesh!
