Brooke Burke-Charvet announced a shocking elimination—she won’t be returning to Dancing with the Stars as a co-host next season.
On Friday, the 42-year-old TV star tweeted, “Weird day….Shocking pre-season elimination #DWTS…ME. @Tom_Bergeron didn't even read my name. I won't be returning to the show this season.”
However, Burke-Charvet believes that “change is positive” and that she’s looking forward to her next chapter in life.
Thanks for all the love & support. I loved my time in the ballroom & I'll love my next chapter too. Change is positive. Love you guys!— Brooke Burke-Charvet (@brookeburke) February 22, 2014

The executive producer of the show, Conrad Green, confirmed in a statement that she will be leaving after eight seasons co-hosting with Tom Bergeron.
“She’s been a wonderful part of the Dancing with the Stars family since her triumphant win,” the statement reads, “and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We'd like to thank Brooke for her years of great service.”
Brooke's last time on the show was Nov. 26 when Amber Riley won the mirror ball trophy with partner Derek Hough.
After judge Carrie Ann Inaba found out, she tweeted her support, “So sad about this @brookeburke U know we still LOVE you so MUCH! But, I'm excited for your next steps in your incredible journey of life!!”
Burke-Charvet, who won Season 7, became the co-host in Season 10 replacing Samantha Harris.
The next season, Season 18, will premiere on March 17th following the March 4 cast announcement on Good Morning America.
