Cheryl Burke: Ian Ziering 'Made Me Want to Slit My Wrists' on 'DWTS'

The 'Dancing with the Stars' pro-dancer who left after season 19 opens up that she begged the executives to eliminate her early in season 4.

AceShowbiz - %cCheryl Burke% couldn't stand %cIan Ziering%. The "Sharknado" actor was Burke's least favorite partner on "Dancing with the Stars" and she made the revelation during a recent chat on Matt Weiss and Theo Von's "Allegedly" podcast.

"The fact that is name is not EE-AN and it's EYE-AN makes me want to throw up," Burke said. She hated him so much that she begged the producers to eliminate them early. They, however, made it to the semi-finals and finished in fourth place.

"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."

Ziering, who's also a Chippendale dancer, later competed on "The Celebrity Apprentice". Burke commented on his antics on the NBC show, "That's the true colors that they didn't show on 'Dancing With the Stars.' " She added, "Think of spending time with that for like eight to 10 hours a day, seven days a week for three months."
