After serving as co-host of 'Dancing With the Stars' since season 10, Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining the ABC show for its upcoming 18th season.
'Dancing With The Stars' will not only have new contestants when it returns to ABC, but the hosting line-up has also have seen a change.
Brooke Burke-Charvet and the television network have parted ways just as Season 18 is weeks away.
"Weird day..Shocking pre-season elimination #DWTS.ME," she tweeted on Saturday morning (Feb 22nd).
Brooke Burke-Charvet has spoken candidly about her thyroid surgery, and now she's acting candidly, giving the world a glimpse of her scar on Good Morning America.
She first informed everyone of the good news - that she was free of cancer - in early December, writing, "I just got the results back from all of my tests and great news - the thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and all my lymph nodes are clear," in her blog on Modern Mom. "This is a first for me today," she said on Good Morning. "I've been scarf-ing it up. But you know what, it's fresh. It's a month old, and I think scars tell a story. And I'm so fortunate. I'm one of the lucky ones," she continued. "It was shocking. I never thought I would hear the word cancer in relation to myself."
What Brooke has achieved by being so open on her illness (she regularly keeps everyone updated via tweets and her blog) is to give hope to other people in the same situation. Celebrities comprise a large part of life for some, and when they use their profile for good, it gives credence to their position in society. "The message really is about preventative health because I had no symptoms," she says. "And generally, thyroid cancer is very subtle symptoms. I went for a regular physical," she added.
