Cheryl Burke Calls Out Chris Harrison's Alleged "Sloppy Drunk" Remark
Cheryl Burke and Chris Harrison are addressing some thorny allegations.
Back in the day, the Dancing with the Stars alum almost two-stepped her way into a new role handing out roses as the Bachelorette on the ABC reality show. Her casting ultimately fell through, however, and she was told at the time it was because of the show's former host. Now, the 39-year-old is finding out what really happened.
"So they told me that the reason that I didn't get to do the Bachelorette," she said to Chris during an Oct. 23 appearance on his podcast, Most Dramatic Podcast Ever"is because Chris Harrison said you're a sloppy drunk."
But—having clarified earlier in the episode that Chris, who left the show in 2021, played no part in the decision—he laughed off the accusation.
"That's so funny," he replied, adding of the dating show's creators, "They, in public, would never give me that kind of power, to decide who the Bachelor or Bachelorette is. Yeah Mike [Fleiss] would ask me, or you know someone would ask like, 'Hey, like, what do you think about Emily Maynard? What do you think about Jason Mesnick or whatever?' And I'd give my two cents."
