Love rumors are unavoidable especially when two people spend a lot of time together just like celebrity participants and their professional dance partners on Dancing with the Stars.
While recently added castmember Holly Madison
, who replaced country singer Jewel
and is now paired with Dmitry Chaplin
, acknowledges the fact that gossip is inevitable, she insists that romance is far from her mind these days.
“I don't think anyone would bother starting romance rumors about me. I am all business,” said Madison, who recently split with Mindfreak
illusionist Criss Angel after four months of dating. “I don't want any romance in my life right now. I could never find a guy who will live up to my expectations.”
Obviously, the former Girls Next Door
star is presently busy shaping up for Dancing with the Stars.
The 29-year-old reality TV starlet made her debut last night and garnered a score of 18 out of a possible 30 - not bad considering she just had six days of training for the cha cha.
“I'm sure you're going to come out [next week] and be fabulous," judge Len Goodman predicted of her and Chaplin's upcoming quick step.
Meanwhile, Madison reveals that her biggest competition right now is The Bachelor
's Melissa Rycroft
, who was recently added to season 8's lineup to as a substitute for Nancy O'Dell
“She is a natural dancer and everyone loves her, including me,” Madison said of Rycroft.
While Rycroft can certainly bring in new viewers to the show, Madison reveals that she can do wonders when it comes to studio audiences.
"I'm inviting all my girlfriends to the shows,” Madison said. “There will be a lot more hot girls in the audience this season!”
Catch Holly Madison on Dancing with the Stars
next Monday at 8pm on ABC.
