"Dancing with the Stars" co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet tweeted a response to being fired on Feb. 22, 2014. Brooke will not be returning to "DWTS" for season 18. Brooke Burke-Charvet first appeared on the show as a celebrity dancing contestant in the seventh season. She co-hosted "DWTS" with Tom Bergeron since season 10.

Brooke Burke-Charvet tweeted at midnight on Saturday, "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."

ABC released a statement on Saturday, "We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season. She's been a wonderful part of the Dancing with the Stars family since her triumphant win in season seven and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We'd like to thank Brooke for her years of great service."

On Friday night, the former "DWTS" co-host host released a statement to E! Online, "I have enjoyed seven seasons co-hosting DWTS but understand the need for change considering the position of the show at this juncture. I've always been one to embrace change and looking forward to pursuing opportunities I previously wasn't able to entertain because of contractual obligations to the show. I've seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom, but this one takes the cake."

The 18th season of "Dancing with the Stars" debuts March 17, 2014, on ABC, channel WJXX in Jacksonville, Fla. The show also recently fired bandleader Harold Wheeler, and his 28-member band. Tune in to the "DWTS" season 18 premiere to check out all the changes.
