'Celebrity Rehab' in Talks with Liza Minnelli

6/2/2010 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0602_liza_EX_Getty_01TMZ has learned "Celebrity Rehab" is setting its sights on Liza Minnelli to headline its new season.

As we first reported, the show was put on ice yesterday because it didn't have the star power it needed to launch the season.

We're told the parties have been negotiating but no deal has been struck.  Insiders say the figure being negotiated is "in the $500,000 universe."

We spoke with Liza, who says she has "no interest" in doing the show.  But we're told negotiations continue.

Minnelli reportedly said in 2004 she went back into rehab for alcohol addiction.

We've previously reported the names of several other new cast members, including Tila Tequila and Jason Wahler.

We're told the show could begin shooting as early as Friday.

That picture is very unflattering, she's actually pretty good looking, I would do her in a heartbeat.

I think we should have a ban on this show. Liza is sober, but you're going to pay 1/2 million $ for her to bring viewers? And Tila Tequila? Are you serious? She would become an addict for the money! What a desperate, disgusting show. I would never watch it. I don't care who is on. Shame.

Was this story delivered by Drew's PR agent? Liza Minelli is happy, healthy and continually performing. No reason for her to appear on CR.

Celeb Rehab may not have a new season due to the inability to attract, A list celebs.

I love Celebrity ReHab!! - At least is gives those idiots who throw away their talent & careers to do drugs a chance to revive what's left of their careers. If they want ratings they need to aim for Lindsey Low. Liza is too old for rehab - Drink up honey the end is near!

They were offering Lindsay HoHan $1 million, but they're only going to offer an Oscar winner half of that?
