Posted on

Melissa Rycroft (yes, the one who was dumped by Jason Mesnick onthe controversial season finale of The Bachelor) has been tapped to replace injured Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell on Dancing With the Stars, People.com reports, citing a source close to the production; ABC declined to comment. The hit show has its season premiere tomorrow night and Rycroft, 25, is expected to perform. Holly Madison (The Girls Next Door) has been rumored to be filling in for Jewel, who also bowed out with an injury.
