Holly Madison joined the celebrity dance show hit early this week.
Wired PR News.com – Former star of the hit reality series “The Girls Next Door” and ex-girlfriend of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, Holly Madison, has joined the cast of the hit celebrity dance show, “Dancing with the Stars.” As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Madison replaced singer Jewel, who was forced to drop out of the competition last week due to an injury. Madison reportedly joined the cast shortly before the show’s Monday season premiere after rehearsing for five days with professional dancer Dmitry Chaplin.
Madison has appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine four times. After her split from Hugh Hefner, she was linked to celebrity magician Chris Angel.
Also, new to the “Dancing” cast is Melissa Rycroft of “The Bachelor,” who replaced another injured competitor Nancy O’Dell. As noted by the AP, Rycroft joined the cast only three days prior to the show’s premiere.
