Holly Madison: Another Injury for DWTS

Dancing with the Stars' Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin

Could Jewel’s replacement soon find herself sitting on the sidelines?

Although she was relieved to see Denise Richards go home last Tuesday, might have been spared some pain had she been eliminated instead. Yesterday, Holly became the latest Dancing with the Stars contestant to chalk up some medical bills.

DWTS’ Holly Madison Calls Rycroft’s Background “Unfair”

Dancing with the Stars' Holly MadisonIs she just a jealous, uncoordinated dancer…or does have a point? (Or both?)

From the minute she took over for Nancy O’Dell, it was clear would go far on Dancing with the Stars. And though many were glad to see Jason Mesnick’s dumpee given a chance to rise above the ashes, did she bring too much momentum - and experience - to the competition?

While speaking to Us Weekly last weekend, Madison said her biggest threat was Rycroft. “She is an amazing dancer and everybody loves her, including me.”

But when asked how she really felt about her rival’s ballet and cheerleading background, the former Playboy bunny admitted that she thought it was “unfair.” She added, “I wish I had that advantage.”

Well, as Simon Cowell might say, it probably wouldn’t make a difference if Melissa was there or not. If you don’t bring coordination to the table, you’re not going to win anyway.

Jewel and Nancy O’Dell Officially Leave Dancing with the Stars

JewelNancy O'Dell

Well, at least they got some nice photos of it…

One day after rumors of a Holly Madison appearance surfaced, two Dancing with the Stars casting decisions were made official: Jewel and Nancy O’Dell are now permanently on the disabled list. Both celebrities suffered injuries to their knees during the rehearsal phase.

“It’s rather unfortunate that people the most committed to the show were doing harm to their bodies. I believe both injuries came from overtraining, particularly in the early stages,” executive producer Conrad Green stated.

UPDATE: Jewel and Nancy are both leaving the show.

Although the premiere of is still days away, the backstage drama just keeps on coming:

Holly Madison: Let me guess. You’re probably asking yourself right now, “What does Hugh Hefner’s ex have anything to do with DWTS?” Well, according to Us Weekly, there may be more to this Girl Next Door.

An inside source tells the magazine that Madison will be part of next Monday’s premiere. Unless something changes within the next few days, it’s believed the Playboy Playmate will be there to replace an injured Jewel. (The singer is suffering from tendonitis in her knees.)

Reality News: ‘The Bachelor’, ‘The Girls Next Door’

For Season 12 of , ABC will be straying far from the blue-collar image they tried last fall.  (Maybe a different type of guy will end up producing a different result?)  Say goodbye to bar owner Brad Womack and say hello to “global financier” Matt Grant!

Last night on , the audience got their first glimpse of Grant, a British businessman.  In his interview with Drew Lachey, the 27-year-old offered up a few choice chiches.  In addition to calling the candidates “25 smoking women”, he said it was “ridiculously hard” to send someone home every week.  Of course, the handsome guy never said why he needed help finding someone to begin with.

Hugh Hefner May Marry One of His ‘Girls’

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, Gossip, Rumors,

Girls Next Door If you’ve ever watched the Girls Next Door, the reality series that chronicles the happenings of Playboy Hugh Hefner and his three girlfriends, you may have noticed that Holly seems to have the most affection for the old guy. Reports are swirling that Hef may actually tie the knot. His number one girlfriend, Holly Madison, is just 27-years-old. Hef, on the other hand? 80?! The New York Post broke the news on Monday, saying that the nuptials are expected before the end of the year. An insider was quoted as saying, “This is very secret, but the word is ‘yes.’ Hef has decided he will marry Holly, and he wants it for his show, The Girls Next Door. Hef thinks business all the time, and looks for a new hook, although he also does really love Holly.” Hmmm. Sounds like a way to get more viewers to tune in, like he’s all business. And, oh yeah, he loves her too. I love how that part is secondary. Question is, how will his other two girlfriends feel about this—and will Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson still be in the picture? This inside source also said that Kendra and Holly don’t get along. Holly has been with Hef since 2001. The Girls Next Door‘s third season will begin airing in March.
