'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.

I thought Tila was a big enough celebrity, as least that what she says.

Shut up with your stupid comments----she has more talent in her little finger than you could ever dream of. She's from a generation that was less hostile too...she's not a mean person. In her life Liza has experienced incredible things,people and amazing Broadway success and she's a very good film actress. What most idiots like you can't fathom is a truly artistic person like Liza. Artists are DIFFERENT. And yeah, her make-up looks great.
She looks great. Age happens to everyone too, by the way. Morons, try posting your photo when you're her age and lets see how many people think you look not so hot. Judy Garland's daughter is a sweet, complex, high-strung,famous artist who has a very human,imperfect life. As for her critics, ? No one knows who the hell you are, do they ?!

I LOVE "Celebrity Retard"
Everytime it's on TV I get the urge to use. The show gives me an excuse and gives me hopes that maybe someday someone will pay me to get high!

Dr. Drew, for all of us his *possible* good intentions and certain knowledge of addictions is now appearing to the public at large to be another Dr. Phil McGraw; an opportunist whose found a niche' with the afflicted. If he can't find a natural niche' he'll create one by forcing himself into one.
If this guy really cared about these celebs he wouldn't be making his living off them when their in the state we see them in on 'Celebrity Rehab'.
Anonymity is most important not just to the famous but to the man on the street during rehab. Are the celebs that participate just as much to blame? In my opinion, yes. Disgression is a necessary part of living here; increased exploitation of others or one's self is not a good thing especially when you're trying to get sober.
Drew, if you're going to do a show to 'increase awareness' and 'help' do it in the proper way that you already know it should be done. I've no respect for you, the participating celebs or this show. If you want to help people, and if people want to get help, you know what to do and how to conduct yourselves. Get a grip.

Liza Minelli ruined the movie Arthur. And now Dudley Moore is dead and Liza has makeup eyebrows. What kind of a world are we living in?
