DWTS Season 9 – Other Rumors Confirmed?

Rumors about the new rules for this season have been floating around for a while now, but it appears that Cheryl Burke may have confirmed a few to E! News’ Marc Malkin the other night:

“There’s a rule now that we’re not allowed to train for more than five hours a day for the first two weeks,” professional hoofer Cheryl Burke told me last night at the Anna Faris-hosted Malibu-Reef Check event in Beverly Hills.

And there’s more…

“After every two hours, you have to have a 30-minute break,” Burke said. “And we have to have one full day off a week.”

Sounds pretty reasonable to me. When I first heard this one I was afraid it was for the entire season. The first two weeks sounds better – some people just need more time!
