BROOKE BURKE: Fired From Dancing With the Stars


The new season of Dancing With the Stars doesn't start until next month, but they've already eliminated someone -- co-host Brooke Burke.

In a statement, she said, "I’ve seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom but this one takes the cake."

People magazine says FOX Sports reporter Erin Andrews will replace Brooke -- who won the show's seventh season before replacing Samantha Harris as co-host alongside Tom Bergeron starting in season 10. That's the same season on which Erin competed. 

Brooke isn't the only one leaving the show. Longtime bandleader Harold Wheeler will be replaced by former American Idol bandleader Ray Chew when season 18 premieres on March 17th.
