Television personality Cheryl Burke recently got candid about the real reason for her retirement from Dancing With The Stars. Apparently, the show indeed denied her request to upgrade her role into either a judge or a host.
Cheryl Burke Failed to Get a Promotion on DWTS
During the January 4, 2023 episode of Talk Is Jericho podcast, Cheryl Burke revealed why she didn’t see herself coming back to DWTS anymore. According to her, the competition series has been well-aware about her hopes for a change of role in the show. Such desire became clearer after former head judge Len Goodman announced his departure in the series.
In past interviews, Burke has been honest in saying that she wants to keep her contract until the next season but only either as a judge or host. However, the professional dancer was denied the opportunity.
“They don’t see a place for me,” Burke said. “Whether that’s at the judge’s table or as a possible co-host, and that’s okay.”
Nonetheless, Burke said that she is still grateful for the experience. In fact, she may have taken the DWTS rejection as a sign to move forward. As a newly divorced woman, the dancer wants to “evolve in general.” This is ultimately why she withdrew from the ballroom dance competition.
