Last week, Cheryl Burke revealed who her least favorite partner was on Dancing With the Stars when she was featured as a guest on the "Allegedly" podcast.

"My least favorite would be Ian Ziering," she told hosts Theo Von and Matt Weiss.

She continued to rant about the actor, confessing that she couldn’t stand the guy, and had even begged producers to eliminate them from the competition.

"It made me want to slit my wrists," she said.

"I was, like, crying to executives. I was, like, is there any way to please to just eliminate us? They’re like, we can’t. We can’t do that and I swear, every time I asked, we just kept going. We would last till the end."

However, the dancer now says she regrets her choice of words and issued an apology to fans on Twitter.

"I’ve always lived by the rule that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Recently and regrettably, I broke that rule.

"In the heat of an interview conversation, I used a phrase that seemingly makes light of suicide and I deeply regret it. I have many friends and family members that struggle with depression and thoughts of suicide.

"To have said something that seemingly makes a mockery of what they’ve gone through and what they live with is something that I apologize for. I never meant to hurt anyone or to trivialize the topic.

"I was out of line and for that I apologize."

Interestingly, she expressed remorse over her comments alluding to suicide, but never actually took back the comments she made about Ziering.

Sorry, Ian. Sounds like Cheryl still thinks you’re a d*ck.
