Actress Tara Reid is so desperate to appear on hit US reality TV contest DANCING WITH THE STARS she has reportedly instructed her agents to do whatever it takes to get her a part in the show's second season.

An insider claims Reid's agent is "aggressively" trying to get her a spot on the show, which premieres in January (06).

The source tells American magazine In Touch that pop star-turned-reality TV king Nick Lachey's brother Drew will also take part in the TV contest.
