WHY BURGESS LEFT SEASON 28

During an interview in September last year, Burgess elaborated on the axing phone call she received before their rehearsal for "Good Morning America." 

"I could hear it in his voice from the moment the phone call started, and my adrenaline spiked," Burgess explained. "I pulled over, and he let me know that they love me, and I am very much a part of the family at DWTS, but they could not partner me up with a partner this season."
