For the record, we adore Holly Madison.

She's attractive, fun, hard-working.

On The Girls Next Door, Madison even proved to be more than an empty, often-naked body. The series often focused on her efforts to learn the editorial trade.

Still, we're a bit taken aback by the news that Madison is likely replacing an injured Jewel on the new season of Dancing with the Stars.

While the show has never shied away from contestants that have posed in Playboy - from Kim Kardashian to Denise Richards - at least the average viewer was likely unaware of these dancers' nude pasts.

But Madison's affiliation with Hugh Hefner and his magazine is the ONLY thing this beauty is known for. How will the series even introduce her? Say hello to former Playboy model and number-one girlfriend of a man old enough to be her grandfather... Holly Madison!

For a show whose audience is largely comprised of children, does this strike anyone as misguided? Let us know!

Should Holly Madison be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars?

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!

In 2005, Lil Kim was found guilty of conspiracy and perjury for lying to a grand jury about her friends' involvement in a 2001 shooting outside the Hot 97 studios in Manhattan.

As a result, the rapper was sentenced to a year in prison... and ended up as part of the season eight cast on Dancing with the Stars!

According to Kim, fellow inmates loved this reality competition and encouraged her to try out for it; once she had paid her debt to society, of course.

"I'm a huge fan!" the Grammy-winner said. "When I was in prison, me and my girls used to watch it. My girls were like, 'Kim, you need to be on that show.' Everyone watched it faithfully. It's like the #1 show in prison!"

Lil Kim is partnered with Derek Hough on the show. She's psyched about that.

"I was hoping and praying that I got Derek for my partner," she said.

We're just hoping and praying Kim's nipples remain covered throughout the competition.

Forget Denise Richards: It's Complicated.

This attention-starved thespian is embarking on another reality show this spring, Denise Richards: It's Another Opportunity to Exploit My Children.

"My biggest fear is just forgetting everything right before going on live, that’s what I’m scared of,” the actress told People Magazine of her new role as contestant on the eighth season of Dancing With the Stars. “All I hope is that I don’t embarrass my girls!"

Wow. It took all the way until her second sentence for Richards to mention the adorable children she created with Charlie Sheen and has tried to make money off ever since.

Daughters Sam, 4, and Lola, 3, will be forced to stay up late and cheer cheering on their mother, the actress said.

"I let the girls stay up a bit later when the show is on. It’s popcorn night at our house."


The unofficial odds for Richards, who is partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, to win the competition stand at 15-1. The odds of her kids showing up in the first row every night? 1-3.

Dancing with the Stars is at it again.

Last season, the series featured contestant (and eventual winner), Brooke Burke. The model had posed naked for Playboy numerous times, creating questions over whether or not the show was being irresponsible for highlighting a celebrity with such a lewd past.

Producers must not have thought so, considering the just-released cast for season eight.

Brooke Burke feels good about her final performance on Dancing with the Stars.

"I feel like we've done everything we needed to do this season," she told Us Weekly, following a combined score of 58 on her and Derek Hough's two routines last night. "And no matter what happens on the show - tonight, we can go home, and I feel like we won."

Dancing to Victory?

Meanwhile, former contestant Joey Fatone has dissed Kim Kardashian for unknown reasons.

In an interview with The New York Post, the boy bander said the competition is "not just about dancing. It’s about personality, too. And that Kim Kardashian, ugh, she has no personality at all. It was painful to watch.”

Many people feel the same way about Fatone's reality show-hosting career.
