Tom Bergeron Hints Acting Return after Getting Fired from 'Dancing with the Stars'

Days after announcing that he wouldn’t be returning to “Dancing with the Stars (DWTS),” Tom Bergeron might have found a new job. The long-term host has teased the possibility of him acting again.

On July 13, 2020, Bergeron, 62, revealed the sad news that he had been axed from DWTS. Instead of being down and out, the star appears to have found another job opportunity!

The star jokingly lamented on Twitter about not having monogrammed towels now that he wasn’t going to be on DWTS anymore. His tweet came after it was revealed that Tyra Banks would be taking his and Erin Andrews’ spot.
