The dancing pro said the ‘90210’ alumni made her want to ‘slash her wrists’.
Cheryl Burke has been helping celebrities learn to foxtrot and tango on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ for 18 seasons now, but there’s one name she’d rather forget, actor Ian Ziering. During an appearance on the ‘Allegedly’ podcast, Burke didn't hold back when asked to name her least favourite partner, singling out the ‘90210’ star.
Cheryl Burke did not enjoy being partnered with Ian Ziering on 'DWTS'.
"My least favorite [partner] would be Ian Ziering," Burke confessed (via TMZ). "The fact that his name is not EE-AN and it's EYE-AN makes me want to throw up.” Hosts Matt Weiss and Theo Von then admitted that they weren’t too fond of the actor’s behaviour during his time on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’, but Burke says that was Ziering’s true self.

The seven remaining couples were feeling the pressure this week since last week's elimination when Snooki went home. The Jersey Shore star and her professional partner were not the lowest scoring couple and even performed their samba admirably, yet it wasn't enough to save them!

Paula Deen will not be appearing on 'Dancing With the Stars' despite the show's interest in casting her. Sources claim the TV chef believes "the dance floor is not an appropriate forum".

Deen seems to be staying out of the limelight following the scandal in June, which saw the TV chef dropped by a number of her sponsors and the Food Network. The scandal was caused by Deen's admission that she had used racial slurs.
Instagram has been under fire all week after announcing a new terms-of-service policy which gives the company power to sell user photos without compensating the creator, however, one famous celebrity appears to be leading the fight against the social media giant. Kim Kardashian - one of Instagram's most prominent users - is considering deleting her account unless the company revises its new policies.
According to TMZ.com, Kim K is telling friends she's thinking of shutting down her account and setting up at a rival photo-posting company, taking all of her followers with her. It's a pretty big deal considering the reality star has the most users of anyone on Instagram (5,726,343), plenty more than Justin Bieber (4,366,729) and President Barack Obama (1,834,079). Should Kim leave Instagram, her relatives Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and Rob could follow (all of whom are in the Top 10 most followed). One source says Kardashian is planning on waiting to see the revised terms-of-service before making her final decision, though unless radical changes are made, she intends to leave.
Other Instagram users including Kate Walsh and Tiffani Thiessen have also threatened to leave the company, as has Cheryl Burke who tweeted, "Can't believe Instagrams new policy! They r allowed 2 use ALL of ur images in advertising. Will be erasing my account shortly."

Cheryl Burke has been one of the most successful professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars, but now, acknowledging that the show can't have an infinite run, she has been looking around for other opportunities. Speaking to E! she told them about her reasons for wanting to be on The Bachelorette and her plans for the future.
"I have met with the producers of The Bachelorette and I also have met with ABC producers and development executives, just to develop other shows. I realize that Dancing won't be on air forever. I'm taking this opportunity now to develop shows. I met with different high-powered producers, companies and networks about possibly doing new shows, and The Bachelorette happened to be one of them.
"People tell me, 'Why does Cheryl Burke need to go on television to look for a date? Honestly, it's something I've been struggling with-I dated a few guys over summer-I end up picking the wrong people for me. I'm not successful at it. I just thought to myself, 'Why don't I let someone else do it?' I think it would be a way for me to focus on a way to find true love. It sounds cliché, but it's true. I'm turning 29 soon, and it's something I really want to have. I want to be in a relationship. I've been so married to my work lately that it's been a struggle to find a boyfriend, or find someone to talk to. I haven't had a proper date in two, three years." Perfect opportunity to combine work with dating then, it seems.
