Celebrity mom Brooke Burke had a tough weekend, but she’s brushing it off and rolling with the punches like a trooper. Brooke was shocked to learn that she lost her job on Dancing with the Stars, but she took to Instagram to have a little photo fun with her daughter Neriah Fisher instead. The two showed off how alike they look in this sweet no-makeup required collage pic.
On Friday night Brooke found out that she wouldn’t be returning to the ballroom on Dancing With the Stars for the upcoming season. Brooke has been co-hosting the show with Tom Bergeron for seven seasons. Not only did they not tell her ahead of time, but they added insult to injury by announcing her replacement the next morning. Erin Andrews will be the new co-host.
Brooke kept it classy when she talked about the situation. She shared on Twitter, “Weird day….Shocking pre-season elimination #DWTS…ME. @Tom_Bergeron didn’t even read my name. I won’t be returning to the show this season. 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!”
Later she added, “So much chatter bout DWTS. I’m really cool everyone. I did my 7 seasons, had a blast! I’m ready for change. I love your loyalty. Thank you!” and she then joked, “Here’s the skinny – The show found out Harold Wheeler, the band, Rob & me were putting together our own road show, so they fired us all!” Harold Wheeler and their 28 piece band got their walking papers a few weeks back.
What do you think of all the changes coming on Dancing with the Stars?
