After the shocking announcement by ABC that co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews wouldn’t be returning to “Dancing with the Stars (DWTS),” judge Carrie Ann Inaba took to social media to share her thoughts.


This week ABC confirmed that Bergeron and Andrews would not be returning to DWTS as co-hosts. Former model and host Tyra Banks, 46, will be taking on the role of sole host.

Inaba took to Twitter on Tuesday to share her thoughts on the matter. She wrote that Bergeron and Andrews would “truly be missed.”

The judge on the dance competition noted how they’d been “family for many years and that will never change.” She confessed how working with them had been “amazing.”

His trademark wit and charm helped bring DTWS its success - ABC and BBC Studios.

Inaba continued to wish the pair “the best” in their future endeavors. She concluded her post noting how they’d “always be connected through love and respect...and glitter and fake tan.”



Banks is set to replace the co-hosts for the 29th season of DWTS. Bergeron has been hosting the dance competition since it began in 2005.

Andrews, on the other hand, has been with him since 2014. In a joint statement about the big change, ABC and the show’s producer BBC Studios said:

“Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family.”



They revealed that they were embarking “on a new creative direction.” ABC and BBC thanked Bergeron for helping make the show a success with his “trademark wit and charm.”



In the statement, they also confirmed that Andrews wasn’t going to return too. They shared their appreciation for “all that she brought to the ballroom” and noted how her “signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”



Season 28 of DWTS wasn’t a smooth ride for Inaba who had issues with it. Fans were divided when former Press Secretary Sean Spicer joined the cast.



Then the show changed its voting process to allow top competitors to be able to stay as long as possible. At the time, Inaba shared her “disappointment” at seeing cast members she liked leave while Spicer stayed.


She acknowledged, however, that it was a decision controlled by the judges and the viewers. “The Bachelorette’s” Hannah Brown ended up winning the season, but Inaba never expected that.

The pair had some tension during the season.
