I was so sad to hear this. I love Brooke Burke-Charvet! She has such a great personality, she is gorgeous, and I loved watching her on Dancing With The Stars but unfortunately she will not return for Season 18. E!News confirmed the news…
“I have enjoyed seven seasons co-hosting DWTS but understand the need for change considering the position of the show at this juncture,” she said in a statement. “I’ve always been one to embrace change and looking forward to pursuing opportunities I previously wasn’t able to entertain because of contractual obligations to the show. I’ve seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom but this one takes the cake.”
Sources say that Brooke had no idea her job was on the line. Wow! I know that feeling girl. Showbiz can be very cut-throat. Brooke is being replaced by Erin Andrews, the FOX Sports Personality.
In other DWTS shake-ups, Ray Chew will succeed Harold Wheeler as the show’s music director. The 12 new contestants will be revealed live on Good Morning America March 4. Season 18 kicks off March 17th.
