Cheryl Burke is holding nothing back. The professional dancer has been on “Dancing With the Stars” for 18 seasons, but it didn’t take her long to name her least favorite partner: Ian Ziering.
While speaking to Matt Weiss and Theo Von, Burke agrees the former “90210” actor is “captivating” and “intense,” adding “think of spending time with that for like eight to 10 hours a day, seven days a week for three months.” Oh, and she throws a jab at his name, noting “the fact that his name is not EE-AN and it’s EYE-AN makes me want to throw up.”
Unfortunately for her, the pair made it all the way to fourth place – even though Burke tried to make sure that didn’t happen. In fact, she asked to be eliminated! “It made me want to slit my wrists,” she explains. “I was crying to executives. I was [saying], ‘Is there any way to please to just eliminate us?’ They’re like, ‘We can’t. We can’t do that.’ And I swear, every time I asked, we just kept going. We would last till the end.”
