DWTS' Keo Motsepe and Tom Bergeron said he would never return to 'Dancing with the Stars'

DWTS' Keo Motsepe and Tom Bergeron said he would never return to 'Dancing with the Stars'.


Keo Motsepe and Chrishell Stause recent selfie is giving Dancing With the Stars fans a lot to process. The 31-year-old dance pro posted a pic of himself with the Selling Sunset star on Wednesday, Dec. 3. Keo, who appears to be nuzzling Chrishell hair, simply captioned the image with a heart emoji.

Chrishell, 39, commented with a two-heart emoji, while Gleb Savchenko added a ton of hearts and wrote, "Love you guys!!!"

Previously, fans had speculated that a romance could be brewing between Chrishell and Gleb, who was her DWTS season 29 dance partner.

"When people say, 'I'm not gonna watch until you're back,' I say, 'Well, there's really no 'until' here,'" Bergeron explained. "This train has left the station."


That being said, Bergeron doesn't have any bad feelings for fans who still want to watch the series, even after he and co-host Erin Andrews were replaced by Tyra Banks.

"I appreciate the sentiment," Bergeron shared. "[But] I don't hold it against anybody if they [watch]."

Bergeron also opened up about his favorite aspects of having hosted the show for 28 seasons, and the stalwart DWTS emcee said it was all about connections and "the friendships I have with people who were on camera and behind the camera."

Gleb announced on Nov. 6 that he was splitting from wife Elena Samodanova after 14 years of marriage, while Chrishell has endured her own public divorce from ex Justin Hartley. 

Chrishell did her best to put the Gleb rumors to rest at the time by writing on her Instagram Story, "I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena's split. Having gone through a public split myself, I would not wish this on anyone. It is unfortunate that this has caused rumors to swirl about my personal life."

On Nov. 24, she told E!'s Daily Pop that the two were "just friends," and that the speculation encouraged her to maintain distance from Gleb during the DWTS finale. 

"I've hosted every format imaginable. There's no real fire in my gut to do it again," Bergeron shared. "Having said that, I'm always open to surprises."

The decision to terminate Bergeron and Andrews came as a real shock to many fans when it was first announced ahead of Season 29. However, Executive Producer Andrew Llinares defended the move, and cited the pivot as a necessary change for the long-running franchise.

"It's all about evolution," he told reporters back in September. "Any show like this that has been on for many, many seasons needs to continue to evolve. So I think changing that host is all about evolution."

"I was like, 'Stay away from me!'" she said with a laugh. "Social distance! Blame it on COVID."

During a recent appearance on The Tamron Hall Show, Chrishell said she was currently taking some time for herself.

"I think it's really refreshed the pace of the show. It's taken it to a new place, in terms of moving fast and feeling different. I think that there's a real danger when a show has been on for a long time that the audience almost gets bored of the rhythm of it. It doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with it, just that it gets a little boring," he added. "I think it's changed the rhythm of the show in a really exciting way. I think Tyra is doing an amazing, amazing job."

"I'm not dating [right now]," the real estate agent said on the Oct. 16 episode. "You know, I'm really busy. I'm trying to work on my cha-chas and my contemporaries."
