Appearing on Fox's Web talk show 'The Strategy Room', Marquardt announced that her former 'Girls Next Door' co-star was set to fulfill a long-time dream to be on DWTS. Marquardt revealed that Madison could not appear on the show earlier due to scheduling issues, and because her ex-beau Hugh Hefner did not want her to be part of the programme.
"I'm so excited for her. She's wanted to do it for so long, it just never worked with her schedule and Hef was always like ''I don't want you to do that,'' and now it's her time, so I'm really happy for her," Fox News quoted Marquardt as saying.
Marquardt said that Madison would be seen in the March 9 episode of DWTS, and was looking forward to her appearance on the show. Madison recently split with magician Criss Angel, whom she began dating after walking out on Playboy mogul Hefner.
