A “Girl Next Door” is reportedly about the hit the dance floor.

Holly Madison will be joining the cast of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” a source reportedly told Us Weekly.

Speculation was that the former Playboy Playmate could be replacing country singer Jewel, who has been dealing with tendinitis in her knee.

Late last month, Jewel hit her blog and revealed she had been struggling with the injury.

“I guess I really over did it on the rehearsal front!” she wrote. “My knees have been hurting so badly that I finally broke down and talked to [husband] Ty [Murray]‘s knee doctor yesterday. He said I have tendinitis in my knees and that I have to start a course of medicine to try and bring the swelling down.”

However, in a follow-up interview with Access Hollywood and “The Billy Bush Show,” the singer said she had no plans to drop out of the show.

“I guess I really over did it on the rehearsal front!” she wrote. “My knees have been hurting so badly that I finally broke down and talked to [husband] Ty [Murray]‘s knee doctor yesterday.

When contacted by Access Hollywood, ABC had “no comment” on the report of Madison joining the cast.
