He seems to never lose his cool, but Tom Bergeron, of Dancing With the Stars and America's Funniest Home Videos, was once famous for his temper tantrums. “I had a pretty hot temper,” Tom tells In Touch. “But it wasn’t directed at other people, it was always at myself — and apartment walls!” Eventually, Tom discovered meditation, which he says helped him calm the beast within. "I am not that kind of man anymore, and haven’t been for years,” he says today. Tom is hoping to teach others how to find their own inner peace with his new book, I’m Hosting as Fast as I Can!: Zen and the Art of Staying Sane in Hollywood.
The star is also happy with the 8th season of Dancing With the Stars. “This
season there are a couple of front-runners, but those who are not the
strongest dancers have the power of personality," Tom says. "All of that
creates a much more fascinating season than we have had in a while!”
