Troubled pop/rock singer Kelly Osbourne is said to join the celeb contestants of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" for its ninth season. Her agent, according to a source, "is in talks with the producers", adding "They are close to clinching a deal and she is really excited about the prospect of appearing on the show."
Prepping for her not-yet-confirmed appearance in the hit dancing competition, Kelly reportedly has been busy getting in shape with trainer at a gym in her native London. "She has been to the KX gym in Chelsea for private classes to make sure she's in tip-top condition," continues the source. "She's not a natural dancer and wants to be in the best shape possible."
No comment has been made just yet by Kelly about the report. Producers of "Dancing with the Stars" also haven't addressed the matter.
Kelly Osbourne joins a string of famous Hollywood stars whose names are linked to the particular show. Most recently, La Toya Jackson was rumored to join the competition, but she has denied the speculation, insisting she could not make use of brother Michael Jackson's death as an advantage to get more publicity stunt.
Prior to them both, it was reported earlier last week that entertainment network MTV didn't allow its star Audrina Patridge to put her dancing shoes on upon fear that it might interfere with her schedule filming "The Hills" and her new MTV project with TV producer Mark Burnett.
The ninth season of "Dancing with the Stars" will be kicked off on September 21 and the celebrity cast will be officially announced on Monday, August 17 on "Good Morning America".
