Just a music and dancing fan here ....and a lover of life, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible camping in our travel trailer. Favorite Quote at the moment: "Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching, and live like it's heaven on earth." ~ William Purkey.

DWTS Season 18: No More Brooke Burke??

Well…sorry Brooke. And if any of you pros are asking for too much money…well, I guess there is only so far they will go cuz they ain’t got none.  Seriously, though, this makes me very interested to see what other cuts they will make.  Although, in the new one night format there really wasn’t room for two hosts – and Tom rocks.  From Rumor Fix:

RumorFix has learned exclusively that Brooke Burke Charvet, who has co-hosted the show for seven years with Tom Bergeron, will not be returning this season.

On November 25, 2008, Brooke, herself, and partner  Derek Hough won the competition during Season Seven.

RumorFix has reached out to ABC and Brooke’s reps for comment.

ETA: It’s official. From E! News:

Burke-Charvet exclusively confirms to me that she will not be returning to the ABC show.

“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.”

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)
