Brooke Burke-Charvet isn’t going to shed any tears about leaving the ballroom behind her. In fact, the former “Dancing with the Stars” co-host, who was recently replaced with Erin Andrews for the 2014 season, will be hanging up her dancing shoes with a smile as she dives into her new TV endeavor.
According to reports, Burke-Charvet will be gracing an ABC Family program with her charming presence as she takes on the role of Joey Lawrence’s troublesome ex-girlfriend on the hit sitcom “Melissa & Joey.” E! News confirmed that fans of Burke-Charvet can catch their favorite gal on the comedy series June 4 and June 11.
Burke-Charvet’s character, Felicia, is reported to bring some drama to “Melissa & Joey” as the actress stirs up distress in Lawrence’s TV-relationship with Melissa Joan Hart.
Not only are Burke-Charvet’s fans excited to see their idol back on the small screen but they’re also sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see a “DWTS” reunion. Both “Melissa & Joey” stars appeared on the ABC competition: Hart made her salsa debut in Season 9 while Lawrence shimmed his way into our hearts during Season 3. Now the threesome will reunite this summer—but don’t expect them to break out a dance routine.
Prior to announcing her new gig, Burke-Charvet appeared on “Good Morning America” to talk about life after “DWTS.” "I'm excited about a new venture and diving into a new project and my fan base has been so supportive…a little bit angry…so I hope they're still going to tune in," she said. "I'm excited."
We’re excited, too! Not only are we looking forward to catching Burke-Charvet on “Melissa & Joey” but we’re also eager to see the “new” “Dancing with the Stars.” The competition is set to premiere its Season 18 on Monday, March 17 and will be featuring a slew of fresh competitors. From Candace Cameron Bure to Diana Nyda, the 2014 season of “DWTS” is bringing the heat.
