Dancing with the Stars' Peta Murgatroyd and James Maslow may or may not be dating, and Erin Andrews was determined to find out on the show last night.

It was momentarily uncomfortable in the ballroom at the 7:00 mark ...

The new Dancing With the Stars co-host went in for the kill after James' performance which Cheryl Burke (his partner for one "switch up" night only).

"It sounds like we have a little bit of talking to do," she said to the duo. "Can I just ... can you tell us you're dating? I want a Dancing With the Stars baby!"

"You're adorable! C'mon, who doesn't want this?"

Erin Andrews' questioning didn't go over so well.

"Oh my God," Peta replied, as she wiped her brow uncomfortably. Maslow added: "You can't have a baby while you're dancing, alright? So that's not gonna happen."

ABC is yet to comment on Erin Andrews taking over as Dancing of the Stars co-host, or on Brooke Burke-Charvet getting the boot from the same position.

But Andrews has now spoken out in depth about the new position, at first giving props to the woman she's replacing.

"I know that I have huge shoes to fill. I'm a fan of Brooke," Andrews tells People. "She was very wonderful toward me in my season. She was so caring and so fantastic. I can only hope I can emulate somebody like that and use her for guidance."

Like with her gig as a Fox Sports reporter, Andrews said she can only "be myself" when on screen and pointed to Cay Deeley as a fashion role model.

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 may be gone from Dancing with the Stars.

But the ABC competition just managed to make itself even hotter for Season 18.

That's because Erin Andrews has been tapped to replace Burke-Charvet, who was dumped late last week by the network in a surprising move.

"I've seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom, but this one takes the cake."

Andrews, of course, teamed with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Season 10 and has been working as a FOX Sports reporter since August.

ABC is yet to comment on her hiring, but allow us to do so now: NICE MOVE!

Ten weeks and a dozen and a half routines later, Season 10 of Dancing With the Stars has finally come to an end. The winner of the coveted Mirrorball trophy was unveiled Tuesday, with three contestants remaining entering the night.

  • Would it be Evan Lysacek, limber Olympic figure skating gold medalist, looking to add the famed Mirrorball to burgeoning trophy case?
  • Would it be Nicole Scherzinger, the lovely lead Pussycat Doll and lord of the Dancing With the Stars season from beginning to end?
  • Would it be Erin Andrews, embattled ESPN reporter turned ballroom aficionado, and a woman who everyone has to be rooting for?
  • Anna and Evan
  • Derek Hough and Nicole Scherzinger Image

All three made compelling cases this Spring, but there can be only one winner. Follow the jump to see who took home the Dancing with the Stars title ...

Might Erin Andrews pull off an incredible Dancing with the Stars upset?

In our finals preview yesterday, we listed her as a long shot against favorite Nicole Scherzinger and dark horse Evan Lysacek, each of whom are more skilled.

Somebody either forgot to tell Erin she was the underdog heading into last night's final performances, or did tell her and provided her bulletin board material.

Erin Andrews tied Nicole with an aggregate 55, meaning it really will come down to every last vote. Can she muster enough support to win the Mirror Ball?

Teaming with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on a Samba to kick off the night, Erin scored a 29. Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya got a 28 on the Viennese Waltz.

Nicole and Derek Hough's Rumba netted a 28. In the freestyle round, Nicole made up one point on Erin, tying for the overall lead. Evan faltered somewhat.

Erin and Maks in Bed

Erin Andrews mauls Maksim Chmerkovskiy in bed. Art imitating life?

If Scherzinger still has a slight edge, it's because she and Derek went for the toughest moves, almost resulting in Nicole falling off his shoulders at one point.

Erin and Maks, meanwhile, chose to do a lyrical freestyle, which seemed So You Think You Can Dance-esque with props and unadulterated sexual chemistry.

So can Erin actually pull off the upset on tonight's results show - when Kate Gosselin returns, Vienna Girardi debuts and the season winner is unveiled at last?

She earned consideration at the very least. Nicole will likely get the title and it will be well-earned, but she won't run away with it. Last night's full scorecard:

  • Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Samba: 29. Freestyle: 26. Total: 55.
  • Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough: Rumba: 28. Freestyle: 27. Total: 55.
  • Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya: Waltz: 28. Freestyle: 24. Total: 52.

Dancing with the Stars names its 10th champions tomorrow. Who will win it? Only three tandems are left vying for the Mirror Ball when they take the floor tonight.

It's now or never for Erin, Maks, Nicole, Derek, Evan and Anna. There are no cumulative scores, so any faltering tonight could be devastating, even to the favorite.

Below, we break down the dancers left standing on the final night of competition, their strengths and weaknesses, and their odds of bringing home the glory ...

Erin Andrews & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Why they'll win: Sex appeal. Chemistry. Being a hoot to watch. Unquestionably the most attractive and fun pair all season long, Erin and Maks have earned their place in the finals with performances that are technically rigorous as well.
Why they won't: This isn't to suggest the judges have it in for Erin, but they sort of do. Off-the-charts heat doesn't translate to higher scores - rarely they matched Nicole or Evan's totals. If they did tonight, it would be a surprise. A hot surprise.
Odds: 20-1

  • Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Image
  • Perfection For Evan

Can either Erin or Evan pull a huge upset in this week's finals?

Evan Lysacek & Anna Trebunskaya
Why they'll win: Evan and Anna served notice with last week's dances that this far from over. Nicole may be the favorite, but Evan has as many perfect 30s (two) as she does, and if they end up all square at the end of tonight, he may have a shot.
Why they won't: Nicole is still better ... which is a little unfair, given that she dances for a living, but such is life. Evan needs to be nearly flawless and get some help.
Odds: 5-1

Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough
Why they'll win: Woman's got skills. Those new Pussycat Dolls have big shoes to fill. Popular and proficient, Nicole has the whole package and should get it done. And partnering with Derek Hough should help with the female audience, as well.
Why they won't: Her fan base could assume she has it wrapped up and not vote. It's all about turnout as much as talent. Or she has a rare off night, which we doubt.
Odds: 3-2

Make no mistake, this title is Nicole's to lose.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck danced her way out of this one.

Having needlessly bashed Erin Andrews for dressing provocatively on Dancing With the Stars, criticizing her outfits on a dance competition show in which contestants of both genders all dress scantily, Elisabeth felt terrible.

On Tuesday, Hasselbeck implied that Erin should tone it down and said her peephole stalker could've waited a few months to see the goods with less prison time.

Pretty uncool.

Andrews understandably called the commentary "a slap in the face," and Hasselbeck apologized, saying that her young daughter advised her to contact Andrews.

"I wanted to offer that publicly too," Hasselbeck said, and you have to give her credit for that at least, not to mention the sincerity. Here it is:

Erin Andrews‘s waltz on Monday's Dancing with the Stars was one of her best efforts to date, according to the judges and voters. Just not Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

The View host criticized Erin - who has endured two separate stalking incidents in the past year - for "dressing inappropriately" on the ABC reality competition.

“In light of what happened and as a legal [matter] - and as inexcusable as it was for that horrific guy to go in and peep on her in her hotel,” Hasselbeck said.

“I mean, in some way if I’m him, I’m like, ‘Man! I just could’ve waited 12 weeks and seen this - a little bit less - without the prison time!’”

That's a bad joke at best, and a very rude insult at worst.

In March, Michael David Barrett was sentenced to federal prison for filming Erin Andrews nude through a hotel peephole and posting a video of her online.

In April, after her Dancing with the Stars debut, Andrews received death threats. Elisabeth apparently thinks she should lock herself at home as a result?

Erin called these remarks “a slap in the face to victims of stalking and sexual predators. As a mother and a woman, I’m disappointed she went there.”

Don't even get Maksim Chmerkovskiy started, either. The Dancing With the Stars pro, who's partnered with Erin this season, was far from thrilled.

Chmerkovskiy quickly fired back: "I'm the one designing [Andrews'] dresses for the show, so I'll just assume that [Hasselbeck] is jealous... and stupid."

Pro Louis Van Amstel also defended Andrews, Twittering to Hasselbeck: "Why did u have to throw @erinandrewsespn under the bus this morning?"

"Shame on [you] ... Leave her alone. Aren't u all working for the same network ABC/ESPN???? U should have each other's back, not trashtalk Erin."

Fellow contestant Evan Lysacek also chimed in on the topic: "So disappointed that anyone would attack [her] after all she's been through."

Andrews told Access Hollywood she "cried" after hearing the remarks: "People can have opinions about the show, but my biggest complaint is she's a woman and a mother and it was a mockery of something serious I've lived through."

A little silly to single out Erin on a show where all the stars - men and women - dress and dance suggestively, don't you think? Whose side are you on?
