Carrie Ann Inaba admitted she cried when she learned that her colleagues Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will no longer host “Dancing with the Stars.”


The “DWTS” judge revealed that the news came as a shock to her, as reported by ET Online. She opened up about her feelings, saying:

“My heart breaks for Tom and Erin. I cried when I heard the news.”


She said that fans of the ABC dancing competition were surely just as shocked by the announcement. It was also announced that Tyra Banks will now be the show’s host.

Inaba also responded to claims that Banks will be the show’s first Black host. She said that Season 1 had Lisa Canning.

Tyra Banks assured fans that the show’s history will be honored even as changes will be implemented.

She added that people should not focus on Banks' race. “It has nothing to do with the color of her skin,” she said.

Inaba praised Banks saying she is a visionary, strong, and powerful woman. Aside from being the show’s host, Banks has also become one of the show’s executive producers.


Inaba added that while fans will still need to get used to the changes, she is confident that the show is in good hands.


Banks, also known for her show “America’s Next Top Model,” earlier teased some of the changes fans can expect on DWTS, as reported by ET Online.

The 46-year-old supermodel and businesswoman also hosted NBC’s talent competition, “America’s Got Talent” for two years.

Banks is excited to be a part of the hit reality dance competition. As reported by USA Today, she will be working with “DWTS” executive producer Andrew Llinares.


She said that the 29th season of the show will undergo a “creative refresh.” She also assured fans that the show’s history will be honored even as changes will be implemented.

As reported by US Magazine, Andrews, 42, said that her 10 years of hosting the popular show were made special by her co-host Bergeron.

She also extended her gratitude to the dancers and the judges on the show. She went on to say that she will forever cherish the experience.

Meanwhile, Bergeron recently shared a photo on social media showing him in high spirits while hiking at Broadmoor Seven Falls in Colorado Springs.

It was the first post he shared with fans after news broke out of him being let go by “DWTS.” Bergeron had been with the show since it premiered in 2005.
