Yowza. Cheryl Burke just called Ian Ziering a gigantic D*CK!

Alright, that’s not an exact quote, but it’s the basic takeaway. 

The Dancing With the Stars pro didn’t bother mincing words about the hatred she harbors for her former dance partner while speaking with Matt Weiss and Theo Von on the "Allegedly" podcast. 

When asked who her worst DWTS partner was, she didn’t skip a beat before saying, "My least favorite would be Ian Ziering."

Burke was partnered with Ziering during season four of the show, and despite their differences, the pair made it to the semi-finals.

So why did she loathe Mr. Beverly Hills 90210 so much? Well, first of all, there’s that pukey name.

"The fact that his name’s not EE-an and it’s AYE-an makes me want to throw up," she started. But she was far from done skewering the man.

When the host chimed in that Ziering had pissed him off on The Apprentice, Burke told him that was simply his everyday persona.

"That’s the true colors that they didn’t show on Dancing With the Stars," she said.

"Think of spending time with that for like eight to 10 hours a day, seven days a week for three months," Burke added.

The dancer confessed that week after week, she hoped to get voted out of the competition, and even aired her grievances to the show’s producers.

"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."

Hot motherloving damn. Why can’t all interviews be like this??

As for this year, rumor has it Mischa Barton is the worst star to work with. Guess there’s one every season.
