'Dancing with the Stars' pro Cheryl Burke apologizes to Ian Ziering for past 'nasty' comments

The “Dancing with the Stars” pro dancer, 36, surprised fans in 2016 when she admitted that Ian Ziering, who she danced with for the show’s fourth season, was her “least favorite” celebrity dance partner.

At the time, she opened up about Ziering on Matt Weiss and Theo Von’s “Allegedly” podcast, according to TMZ, and said that working with the “Beverly Hills, 90210” star made her “want to slit [her] wrists.”

After the interview, she apologized for her comments, saying: “In the heat of an interview conversation, I used a phrase that seemingly makes light of suicide and I deeply regret it.” She made no mention of the actor in her apology.
