As the "official halfway point of the season" came around on Monday (October 21), fans of "Dancing with the Stars" were in for quite a few surprises!
At the start of the live episode, co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet explained that the contestants would have the option to score a few more judges' points by managing to improv dance when there was a random "Switch Up" in the music.
Partying on the beach with her gal pals, Cheryl Burke was spotted in Malibu, CA on Saturday (July 28).
The 28-year-old beauty looked gorgeous in a sheer tan cover up that gave a peek of her aqua bikini underneath sunk her toes in the sand with fellow "Dancing with the Stars" performers Kim Johnson and Kelly Monaco.
Gearing up for the new fall season, ABC held its 2012 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills on Friday (July 27).
The network paraded out all their stars for the event, which included "Dancing with the Stars" cast members Cheryl Burke who wore a slinky black dress with heels and a gold cuff bracelet and Karina Smirnoff who posed in a cream-colored sequined dress. They were joined by new "DWTS" all star cast member Pamela Anderson.
