‘DWTS’ pro Cheryl Burke had 18 seasons worth of partners on the show, but Season 4’s Ian Ziering was apparently so bad that she wanted to KILL herself! And no, she’s not talking about his dance moves. Click through to listen to her shocking confession!
Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke, 31, went off on her Season 4 partner, Ian Ziering, 52, for a myriad of shocking reasons in an interview with the Allegedly podcast. Cheryl told hosts Matt Weiss and Theo Von, in a snippet released on April 16, that working with Ian was so horrific that she didn’t even want to win the competition. In fact, she’d rather die!
“My least favorite [DWTS partner] would be Ian Ziering. The fact that his name’s not EE-an, it’s EYE-an, makes me want to throw up,” Cheryl told Matt and Theo, and it’s unclear if she’s joking, though it seems that she isn’t. The hosts’ comment that he displayed some arrogant behavior while on Celebrity Apprentice.
“That’s the true colors that they didn’t show on Dancing With The Stars. Think of spending time with that for eight to 10 hours a day, seven days a week for three months,” she said. “[It] made me want to slit my wrists. I was like crying to the execs, ‘is there any way to just eliminate us?’ and they’re like ‘we can’t do that.’ And I swear to God every time I’d ask, we just kept going. We lasted til the end.”
WOW! Those are some heady statements. What exactly did Ian do to Cheryl to get so much hatred? Because she is not being quiet about how much she loathes him; he must already know! The pair actually made it to fourth place that season, despite her best efforts. Cheryl’s full Allegedly episode will be released on iTunes on Tuesday, April 19.
