A former Dancing With The Stars contestants opens up about her time on the show.
Cheryl Burke, a professional dancer revealed on a podcast what her time with 90210 star Ian Ziering was like.
What did Cheryl Burke say to Ian Ziering?
The two danced together on the fourth season of Dancing With the Stars in 2007.
The pair went on to finish fourth place in the competition.
Burke apologized to Ziering on the "Pretty Messed Up" podcast for comments she had made a few years earlier.
Speaking in 2016 on the Allegedly podcast, Burke was asked who her least favorite star to dance with was.
"I was, like, crying to the executives," she said. "I was like, 'Is there any way to please just eliminate us?"
Burke also added that dancing with Ziering made her "want to slit her wrists."
Burke later apologized for the remark, saying that she had no intention of making light of suicide, and that the phrase was just used 'in the heat of the interview'.
Now, Burke is expanding on her apology, working on making amends with Ziering.
"I truly am so sorry for being so inconsiderate and just talking trying to get a reaction and putting him as my punching bag really."
Outside of the off-color remark about suicide, Burke also commented on Ziering's name in the original podcast.
"The fact that his name is not 'EE-AN' and it's 'EYE-AN' makes me want to throw up!"
Burke added in her most recent apology that the comments that she made were ' to the next level of nastiness' and that she 'lost a lot of respect for herself'.
Is Tom Bergeron coming back to Dancing With the Stars?
Just before season 29 of the show, which aired in the fall of 2020, longtime host Tom Bergeron was abruptly removed.
He was replaced by the immensely popular Tyra Banks, but long time fans of the show were not happy with his departure.
However in a tweet that Bergeron sent out on April 19, 2021, some fans have hope he may be returning
Many think that this could be that he will be returning for the 30th season of Dancing With the Stars.
While there has been no official announcement, many fans are hoping he will be replacing Tyra Banks, instead of coming back to co-host.
It's also possible that this tweet could be about returning to another one of his appearances, such as America's Funniest Home Videos.
A return to America's Funniest Home Videos would be unlucky however, as current host Alfonso Ribeiro, who has been there since 2015, has had no rumors of leaving.
While Dancing With the Stars has no official premier date for season 30 fans still have plenty to be excited about.
One thing is Bachelor stars, with a potential for the previous Bachelor Matt James to take the floor.
