Brooke Burke Talks About Winning 'Dancing With the Stars' In 2008 (VIDEO)

Brooke Burke talks about 'Dancing With the Stars' on 'Access Hollywood Live'In 2008, Brooke Burke beat out former NFL star Warren Sapp to win the Mirrorball Trophy on 'Dancing With the Stars.' With the most recent season of 'Stars' ending Tuesday night, Burke went on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about what she said was "one of the most exciting moments" of her life.

"Nobody realizes what goes into it and the energy and the excitement," she said. "There's nothing casual about it." The show required a lot of work -- eight to 10 hours a day, according to Burke, depending on how quickly one picks up the steps.

Burke said the work helped her to slim down just four months after having had her fourth child. Outside of 'The Biggest Loser' contestants and perhaps someone trapped in a bear cage with a running track, few people get to do the eight hours a day of cardio Burke said she got out of the show.

Brooke Burke Talks About Her Crush on Ralph Macchio (VIDEO)

Brooke Burke on 'Rachael Ray'Cobra Kai was no problem, but Ralph Macchio could not overcome the salsa.

The 'Karate Kid' star was knocked out of 'Dancing With the Stars' in the semifinals, but co-host Brooke Burke won't hold that against him. Burke admitted a bit of a crush on Macchio on 'Rachael Ray' (weekdays, syndicated). She said she had to admit to Macchio when he first came on 'DWTS' that, as a kid, she'd had posters of him plastered all over her room.

Burke said Macchio "hasn't changed a bit," and was disappointed to report that Macchio had no mutual crush. Her kids recognized Macchio in the hall at the show, and wanted to get a picture with him. But Burke stepped in. "I'm like, 'Excuse me, I want my one picture alone with Ralph Macchio please."

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke Discuss Their Exit

by Michael Maloney, posted Apr 27th 2011 10:20AM
Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke, Chris Jericho and Cheryl BurkeWhen a show like 'Dancing With the Stars' is filled with so many talented celebrities, one off week can cost someone his or her place on the show. That's just what happened with Chris Jericho and his pro partner Cheryl Burke.

After scoring a low mark of 22 for their tango during "guilty pleasures" week, the two were voted off the show.

While the ejected duo and the survivors usually all go backstage together to do press, this week only Jericho and Burke did. The rest of the cast hoofed it immediately to rehearsal, since next week's show includes team dances.

Below, check out what Jericho and Burke had to say about their exit, what host Brooke Burke thinks of the competition this season and what Len Goodman thought of Kendra Wilkinson's dance.

Brooke Burke, Chris Harrison to Host Miss America Pageant on ABC

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 26th 2010 3:35PM
Brooke BurkeAfter a five-year foray into basic cable, Miss America is returning to ABC in 2011. To welcome the pageant back to its original home -- the first televised Miss America competition aired on ABC in 1954 -- ABC has tapped its own 'Dancing With the Stars' personality Brooke Burke to host the pageant alongside 'The Bachelor' guru Chris Harrison.

By hiring two of its most popular hosts from its two most popular reality show franchises, ABC is probably hoping to breathe life into the aging beauty. After suffering declining ratings, Miss America moved from broadcast to cable, from Atlantic City to Las Vegas, then from CMT to TLC before winding up back at ABC.

'Dancing With the Stars' Tries to Clear Up the Sarah Palin Booing Controversy (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars' Tries to End the Sarah Palin Controversy: Says She Was NOT BooedMonday night, 'Dancing With the Stars' unintentionally entered the murky world of political controversy. Ex-Alaskan governor Sarah Palin showed up to support Bristol Palin -- her daughter and a current contestant on the show. Which is when things started to get weird. While host Brooke Burke interviewed Jennifer Grey and her partner Derek Hough, boos suddenly began rolling in from the audience.

Grey was confused, and thought that the crowd was attacking her. "Why are they booing?" she asked. Brooke said she didn't know. Seconds later, the camera cut to Sarah Palin, who looked confused and a little flustered. This led some viewers (and some members of the media) to conclude that Palin was the one being booed. So who or what was being jeered by the crowd? Sarah? Jennifer? The judges? On tonight's episode (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC), 'DWTS' tried to end the controversy.

In an unprecedented move, producers aired "raw" footage from the previous night. This was meant to provide much-needed context to what is now being called "Boo-Gate." (Isn't it cute how quickly people come up with names for these things?)

Did Sarah Palin Get Booed on 'Dancing With the Stars'? (VIDEO)

Did Sarah Palin Get Booed on 'Dancing With the Stars'?Because she's a supportive mother and everything, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin showed up on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) in order to cheer on her 19-year-old daughter, Bristol Palin. But it seems that even an appearance on a reality show can provoke some controversy, if Ms. Palin is involved.

While Jennifer Grey -- last week's winner of the show -- was receiving her scores, audible jeers started rumbling through the auditorium. "There's booing in the ballroom," said host Brooke Burke. "We don't know why." "... Why is there booing?" Grey asked. The camera then moved over to to Ms. Palin, who was sitting next to co-host Tom Bergeron. Sarah shook her head in bemusement. At this point, the boos stopped. Once Sarah showed up on the screen, the crowd began to applaud.

The season 11 cast of 'Dancing with the Stars'
The newest cast of 'Dancing With The Stars' got their feet wet last night after the line-up was unveiled by hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke.

Ten out of the show's dozen stars did their first round of publicity to tout their participation in the top-rated dance-competition series. (Singer Michael Bolton and reality TV star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino were unable to attend.) AOL's TV Squad was on the scene to get the celebs' reactions.

"My agent called me and asked me if I'd be interested in doing the show," said reailty TV star Audrina Partridge of 'The Hills.' "And I said, 'Yes!' I'm really excited to meet Jennifer Grey. I'm a big 'Dirty Dancing' fan."

Brooke Burke's First Job on 'Oprah' (VIDEO)

Brooke Burke's First Job on 'Oprah'Brooke Burke has come a long way since her first job. As a 15-year-old, she worked part-time at a pretzel shop, making $3.75 an hour. Now, the model and TV star is co-host of 'Dancing With the Stars' and makes -- well, a lot more than she used to. On 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Burke gets a chance to reenact her first job, and finds that her pretzel-making skills have really fallen apart.

'Dancing with the Stars' -'Performance 1' Recap

Buzz Aldrin practices with professional Ashly Costa
(S10E01) It's the tenth season of 'Dancing with the Stars' and, shockingly, five years have past since the first performance. I'm happy to see that the show finally made some interesting changes. The opening sequence doesn't cause me to have seizures from all the kaleidoscope spins, the graphics are now different, and the couples sit in a fish tank off to the side of the stage.

Speaking of couples, the eleven couples all looked nervous as they looked down the stairs, hoping they didn't trip and fall on live television. We get to see all the contestants perform one Latin and one Ballroom performance before anyone gets eliminated. This week the contestants will have to tackle either the Cha-Cha or the Viennese Waltz.

This is the first episode for Brooke Burke as Tom's co-host. Burke did a decent job replacing Samantha Harris, but in all reality, I'm still not paying attention to the post-dance interviews.
