While viewers might have been surprised when Tom Bergeronexited Dancing With the Stars in 2019 after 14 years as a host, the 66-year-old TV personality says he wasn't caught off-guard by the decision.  

Speaking on the podcast Bob Saget's Here For You, Bergeron recounted the events leading up to his exit, many of which involved the inclusion of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer as a contestant. Bergeron, who was vocal about his disapproval at the time, noted that it wasn't about supporting one political party over another. 

"Whether it was somebody I voted for or didn't, I didn't think a political person was an appropriate booking for the show, but also for the time we were going to be on, which was really on the cusp of the presidential election campaign, so we differed on that," he explained on the podcast. "I was public about that. I don't think that sat well with the producer or the network."

At the time, Bergeron released a statement making it clear that the casting decision went against not only his preferences but also against what he felt he had agreed upon with the producers. "We can all agree to disagree," he stated at the time. "As we do now, but ultimately it's their call. I'll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions."

Without directly naming Spicer during his podcast appearance, Bergeron added, "I told that person, 'Whether it was you or someone from the other major party who I would have voted for, that wasn't the issue. I would have released the same statement if it was somebody I supported because I don't think they belong here, now.' I just thought [DWTS] would be a nice place to take a break for everybody, for two hours a week. But they're entitled to do the show the way they think is best."

Bergeron added that he didn't really mourn his exit from the show. "The show that I left was not the show that I loved. So at the end of the seasons that turned out to be my last season, I kind of knew," he shared. "So I took everything out of my dressing room that I really wanted because I felt it was kind of obvious that we were kind of butting heads. It was great to have Erin [Andrews] at my side because she and I just kind of locked arms and did the show. "

Bergeron and Andrews were both let go and replaced with Tyra Banks following the 2019 season. 

"I think Erin and I had more fun being fired than virtually anybody," he said. "When I found out who they replaced me with and that that person had the same initials as me, my tweet was, 'Well, I guess I'm not getting back my monogramed towels.'" 

Despite how things turned out, Bergeron still wants fans to support Dancing With the Stars

"I look back at the time I spent there with really great fondness for the vast majority of it," he said. "And also there are people on the show performing that I still care about, and I want them to have long careers. I want people to still watch it and support them and understand that, sure, it's still different, but there are still very, very talented people that are going to be on your screens." 

The current season of DWTS is airing Monday nights on ABC.

Tom Bergeron Gets Candid About Dancing With the Stars Firing

”I kind of saw it coming“


Tom Bergeron is getting candid about his abrupt departure from the popular reality competition series “Dancing With the Stars. ” Bergeron hosted the ABC show from 2005 to 2019, but in 2020 he was informed that he would not be asked back as host for the upcoming season and was quickly replaced by Tyra Banks.

Appearing on “Bob Saget’s Here for You” podcast, Bergeron admitted he hadn’t been happy on the show for some time. “In all candor, the show that I left was not the show that I loved,” Bergeron said, adding that he had an inkling his days were numbered. “The end of the season that turned out to be my last season, I kind of knew. So I took everything out of my dressing room that I really wanted… It was kind of obvious that we were butting heads.”

One of those head-butting incidents that became public was when Bergeron voiced his displeasure at the addition of former Trump White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the series in 2019. Bergeron took to Twitter that summer to note that he had hoped the show’s return would be “free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations” before acknowledging that these kinds of decision were ultimately the producers’ call.

But Bergeron revealed on Saget’s podcast that he had started feeling differently about “Dancing With the Stars” all the way back in the 2000s. “The show had changed a lot for me starting in early 2008,” he said. “We had very clear, sometimes public, differences of opinion about the new showrunner and some of the execs and happily, I was at a point in my life and career where I didn’t have to just shut up and take it. I decided to go public with some concerns I had at that time and I think that set the stage for it.” Alluding to the Spicer incident, Bergeron added, “I kind of saw it coming.”

While Bergeron’s “DWTS” exit was a shock to fans of the series, he has largely remained quiet about the details of his departure. He was even gracious in his exit announcement, which read in part, “It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made.”

As for why he has refrained from speaking publicly about tension behind the scenes, Bergeron said on Saget’s podcast that it seemed self-absorbed. “You know what nobody needs to hear? A whiny millionaire,” Bergeron said. “I mean, look. I had great fortune. I mean, I had two network shows running simultaneously for the better part of a decade and a half.”

Bergeron finished the discussion by saying the “Dancing With the Stars” ugliness is “pretty far in the rearview mirror” for him, adding that he’s moved on to other stuff now.

Stars and professionals fell before the mighty, unforgiving ballroom.

        Since becoming a network television staple since 2005, this reality show has provided viewers with a seemingly endless stream of shocking moments. Think about Master P's understated double pass from Season 2. Or when Sarah Evans unexpectedly left the show in the middle of season three to deal with her ongoing divorce.
