CBS Emergency

Suspicious Letter Targeted

Individual Connected to "DWTS"

9/28/2011 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The suspicious letter containing white powder that triggered a crisis at CBS Studios today was addressed to a specific individual connected with "Dancing with the Stars" ... TMZ has learned.

While there's been controversy surrounding Chaz Bono's appearance on the show ... sources tell us the target was NOT an on-air personality or contestant.
 
As we previously reported, it was determined the powder in the letter was not a harmful substance.

A rep for the FBI -- which is investigating the matter -- had no comment.

why would someone send this to CBS when DWTS is actually on ABC ? I'm little confused but it wouldn't be the first time........

That doesn't make sense at all. DWTS is on ABC not CBS.

I don't know why someone would target Chaz Bono before Nancy Grace...Nancy Grace, people. I'd blow anthrax in her direction like MJ blew cue ball dust at dude in the Smooth Criminal video. I'm open to her winning me over, but I don't think she has it in her.

Three articles? Really? Clean up your site and condense the updates into one. At least i can see something besides the trial on the first page for once.

Guys, I can barely see the watermark. Change transparency to -3000% next time. Really it's super diffucult to make out. (and any plugin to PS will get rid of that in a nanosecond.)

Although DWTS is broadcast on ABC, it's produced at the CBS studios, said to have the best HDTV facilities. (Inter-network rentals are nothing new.)

Probably addressed to Rob Kardashian. Momma K needs to keep her kids in the limelight. Kardashian this, Kardashian that, makes me want to puke.

Low ratings equal publicity stunt. Don't believe this story--TMZ can you please stop reporting the same story on the same day multiple times? Sort of loses credibility.
