Axed DWTS Star Sharna Burgess Shared She Had a Date with Host Tom Bergeron: 'Always Family'
"Dancing With the Stars" alum Sharna Burgess met up with host Tom Bergeron despite being cut from the show.
There are no hard feelings between Sharna Burgess and "DWTS" host Tom Bergeron, as the two met up for lunch after her surprise exit.
The professional dancer will not be returning to the show's 28th season despite winning the latest episode with Bobby Bones.
No Hard Feelings
However, Bergeron and Burgess met up for lunch and even posted their date on social media, proving that all is well.
On Instagram, the dancer shared a photo with Bergeron, hugging one another during their "hot lunch date." Their reunion came weeks after she revealed she would not be dancing for the Mirrorball trophy in the upcoming season.
"Had a hot lunch date today [winky face emoji] Always family [hearts emoji] loved seeing your face @tombergeron, you are an awesome human."
This Year's "DWTS"
While fans won't be seeing Burgess anymore, host Tom Bergeron is set to return to the show. Bergeron has had quite an amazing resume when it comes to hosting, being chosen for fan-favorites like "America's Funniest Home Videos," and of course, "Dancing With the Stars."

Ahhhhhh! @danceonfox for the first time since season 5 asked for a quickstep and they asked us! Firstly it’s always an honor creating for this show and the incredible talent but getting to do it with this guy was just 🙌🏻 @theartemc your talent and teaching skills are wonderful and next level. I say let’s do more of this☺️ maybe #redvelvet can be our choreography name 😉 (no shipping please loves, be respectful 💗) . Everyone tune in tonight to see our 2 dance babies perform their hearts out and leave it all on the floor. We are so proud of you for conquering an incredibly difficult dance and making it look fun, exciting and easy 🙌🏻♥️ @danceonfox thank you for having us, much love and gratitude 🙏🏻💋
Although the two had a "hot lunch date" as they stated, Tom has actually been married for three decades now, to his wife Lois. The two of them share two daughters, Jessica and Samantha.
It came as a shock that Burgess would not be returning to the show following her controversial win last season. She and partner Bobby Bones walked away with the grand prize despite getting lower scores than other contestants, which is why a lot of people contested it.
However, fans may still expect a star-studded cast, including pros Peta Murgatroyd, Cheryl Burke, Gleb Savchenko, Val Chmerkovskiy, Jenna Johnson, Lindsay Arnold, Sasha Farber, Alan Bersten, Witney Carson, Emma Slater, Daniella Karagach, Keo Motsepe, Pasha Pashkov, and Brandon Armstrong.
