There’s some serious remodeling going on over at “Dancing With the Stars” these days, and the latest update is that Erin Andrews will replace Brooke Burke-Charvet as the show’s host/resident eye-candy.
Following the firing of band leader Harold Wheeler and his 28-member ensemble earlier this month, the DWTS honchos decided to give Brooke the old heave-ho and brought in the beautiful FOX Sports reporter instead.
The victim of yet another crippling downsize, Brooke Burke will not return to "Dancing with the Stars," for the upcoming 18th season next month.
Releasing a statement regarding the news, the former show winner, and co-host alongside Tom Bergeron since 2010, said, "I have enjoyed seven seasons co-hosting ‘DWTS’ but understand the need for change considering the position of the show at this juncture."
She score a huge win as the first African American woman to ever take top honors on “Dancing with the Stars” and Amber Riley was thrilled to talk about her victory on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday (November 27).
Joined by pro partner Derek Hough as well as runners up Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne, the “Glee” actress shared, “It meant a lot to me. Man, it was hard. It was something I’ve never done before and I put myself in a position to do something new and hard every single week. Every single week I was learning something I didn’t know. It was a very uncomfortable position to be in but I pulled it out.”
After ten grueling weeks of sore feet and countless hours of practice, it was finally time to name the last three finalists on Monday night's (November 25) episode of "Dancing with the Stars."
So just who made the cut? Well, each star and their pro partner had one last shot to impress the judges by taking part in three dance rounds this evening: a judges' pick, a samba relay and the always-popular freestyle.
