Samantha Harris suggests she may return to host Dancing with the Stars again

We haven’t even begun to experience the magic that will be a full season of Dancing with the Stars without co-host Samantha Harris, and she’s already threatening to return to the show.

Brooke Burke has been hired to replace her, and Samantha told TV Guide that “I think Brooke is a sweetheart, and I’m excited for her to have this opportunity.”

But then she suggested that this is perhaps just a one-season break for her: “Who knows what the future is for [me and] Dancing With the Stars. But for Season 10 I wanted to focus on The Insider,” she said.

And we will focus on your absence.
