Brooke Burke is now speaking out about her "Dancing With the Stars" exit and what is going on with her now. On Thursday, USA Today shared what she had to say about it all and how things went down. She was in Shape magazine this month posing and also talking about it all. This will all be in the September issue.

Brooke spoke out about "DWTS" and said, "I honestly didn’t see it coming … I thought it was kind of outrageous that it happened two weeks before the premiere, but after all, it was only a TV show." They didn't give her hardly any notice that she wouldn't be coming back and fans really were hoping she would be on the show. A lot of them like her better than Erin Andrews, which was her replacement.

When talking about life after being on "Dancing With the Stars" she said, "This forced me to turn the page and create new opportunities for myself. I’m dabbling in a lot of different things. I just finished doing a couple of episodes of Melissa & Joey (she plays the mother of Joey’s daughter), and by the time this issue hits the stands, I may be on another show! I also have a new athletic-wear line, Caelum. Ultimately, leaving the ballroom may be the best choice I never made." It sounds like has been staying pretty busy.

"DWTS" will be returning for another season on ABC this fall. There has been no news that Brooke would return or that Erin won't be coming back. It sounds like the show will be the same as last year unless they make a last minute change again like they did last year when they fired Brooke two weeks before the show started.
