Sad to report, Brooke Burke has been fired from Dancing With The Stars. Brooke is one of many causalities to come as the ABC reality dancing show continues to make some serious cut backs. Band and leader Harold Wheeler was also given the axe.

ABC confirmed the news Friday night, shortly after the co-host revealed to E! that she was fired less than a month before the new season begins.

It’s safe to say, the firing took Brooke by total surprise.

“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”

Brooke will be missed by DWS’s fans. Hopefully she’ll bounce back.

      I know. I liked her a lot. The dynamic among the other 2 judges was good.

        Right out of all the host on all shows, she really seemed the sweetest. But she’s young and pretty enough to bounce back. That door closed, but the next door will be bigger and better…I just know it!

        • EXACTLY… frees Brooke up to move on to a larger platform. A blessing in Disguise!

  • Brooke was fired on FRIDAY Feb 21! Brooke released a statement Feb 22. Show starts March 17.
    Longtime music director Harold Wheeler and the 28 members of the band where also FIRED they were all told over a month ago that their contract was not being renewed.


    ABC is retooling the show…..Brooke had limited vocabulary and was stiff.
