She's losing her job to Erin Andrews, but former Dancing With the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet is keeping her sense of humor about the situation.

And the Winner is?

Brooke Burke is out. Erin Andrews is in. Do you think ABC made the right choice? View Poll »

"Here's the skinny - The show found out Harold Wheeler, the band, Rob & me were putting together our own road show, so they fired us all!" the long time host tweeted.

Harold Wheeler, the musical director, is also out of a job.

Don't worry though, she was totes kidding:

"Off to bed with my sense of humor. I was totally kidding Tweeties. Night nite! Sweet dreams," Brooke added. "I'm really cool everyone. I did my 7 seasons, had a blast!"

"I'm ready for change. I love your loyalty. Thank you!"

Pretty classy response after the producers' surprising move to can her.

Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be by Tom Bergeron's side on Dancing With the Stars in 2014, and it was not the co-host's choice to bid the show farewell.

The 42-year-old confirmed her abrupt, surprising departure Friday.

"I have enjoyed seven seasons co-hosting DWTS but understand the need for change considering the position of the show at this juncture," she said in a statement.

Putting a positive spin on it as best she can, Brooke Burke says:

"I've always been one to embrace change and looking forward to pursuing opportunities I previously wasn't able to entertain because of contractual obligations."

But in an appropriately-worded parting shot, she adds, "I've seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom but this one takes the cake."

Sources tell E! that Burke-Charvet had no idea her job was on the line until ABC apparently informed her Friday afternoon she wouldn't be returning.

When THG spoke with Brooke Burke exclusively last week, she summed up tonight's Dancing With the Stars finals as the most evenly-matched in years.

She echoed that sentiment today in a chat with People.

Hines Ward, Chelsea Kane and Kirstie Alley square off tonight for all the marbles. Like the rest of us, Brooke has no idea who's considered the favorite.

Hines Ward and Kym Johnson aren't just talented, they're "infectious, he's lovable, he's emotionally connected, he's fun to watch," says the Season 7 champ.

In addition, he's got a big fan base that should help him out. As does Kirstie Alley, who no one counts out right now. "What's not to love?" asks Burke.

"She is brave and brutally honest. She surprised everybody. She's got incredible rhythm. Nobody had any idea that she'd be such a great dancer."

Kane, meanwhile, is "just adorable" and "a phenomenal dancer, technically," says Burke, noting that Mark Ballas is known for strong choreography.

In the end, it's anyone's Mirror Ball as the most entertaining season in years winds down with the final routines tonight and the results tomorrow.

Who do you think will win Dancing With the Stars?

THG was fortunate enough to speak with Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke exclusively this week about the 12th season of the hit ABC competition.

Burke won DWTS a few years ago before assuming her MC'ing duties alongside Tom Bergeron, a job she loves and says she'll continue as long as she can.

Brooke says this season's field has been the most even in the show's history and that the Mirror Ball is totally up for grabs on next week's DWTS finale.

The celebrity mom also talked at length about the challenges and rewards of raising her four kids and the importance of moms taking care of themselves.

As we've covered over the last couple weeks, pictures of Brooke Burke nude - and getting VERY cozy with some guy - have created controversy over the selection of this model for the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars.

Still, as the photo below proves, the television personality is ready to show viewers what she has on the dance floor, as opposed the bedroom.

Here she is in her first Dancing with the Stars promotional photo, posing alongside partner Derek Hough:

Now that the official Dancing with the Stars season seven cast has been announced, we have to ask:

Is the show courting controversy in order to increase ratings?

Unlike American Idol - whose popularity sagged last year, leading to the hiring of Kara DioGuardi as a fourth judge - Dancing with the Stars doesn't appear to need a shake-up. Nevertheless, we can't help but wonder what the producers were thinking for two reasons:

  1. Kim Kardashian nude photos;
  2. Brooke Burke nude photos.

Indeed, two of the quasi celebrities chosen for the upcoming season are famous almost solely due to their penchant for getting naked. Each has appeared in Playboy and one has gotten absolutely railed by Ray J on tape.

While the latter fact may make Kardashian seem like the more controversial selection, follow this article's jump now to see just how down and dirty Brooke Burke has gotten in the past...
