Brooke Burke-Charvet fired by Dancing with the Stars
Dancing with the Stars dumped co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet Friday, continuing to clean house prior to its 18th season and blindsiding her in the process. Burke, who joined the series in its 10th season after winning the seventh season, and whose role seemed diminished last season with elimination of the space for her post-dance interviews, tweeted:
Thanks for all the love & support. I loved my time in the ballroom & I'll love my next chapter too. Change is positive. Love you guys!— Brooke Burke-Charvet (@brookeburke) February 22, 2014
In a statement to E! News, she said she “understand the need for change considering the position of the show at this juncture,” and says she will now be “pursuing opportunities I previously wasn’t able to entertain because of contractual obligations to the show.”
In a generic statement released to the media, executive producer Conrad Green called her “a wonderful part of the Dancing with the Stars family.” That’s usually how people describe members of their family before exiling them.
