In a March 2022 episode Carrie Ann Conversations: Journey to Wellness Dancing With the Stars dancer Cheryl Burke and judge Carrie Ann Inaba recalled the show’s early days because they’ve become very close friends over the years. As Carrie Ann wrote on Instagram when promoting the podcast episode with Cheryl, “[A]While I can judge them on screen, we’re actually best friends off screen!”

During their time looking back on the show’s early days, Cheryl revealed the big no-no she’d been sneaking around about that got her in trouble with an executive producer.

Cheryl Burke used to “tan” with Edyta Sliwinska.

It’s not often that I walk across the judges’ table and chat with the pros. Cheryl and I have been on this #dwts ride together for a long time and it was so much fun…2022-03-10T16:49:03Z

Carrie Ann Inaba has been on Dancing With the Stars since the beginning — she even opened up about it “Gateway to Hollywood” in a March 2022 interview that she and fellow judge Bruno Tonioli “didn’t miss an episode.” And Cheryl Burke has been a pro on the show since season two, so the two have some fun memories of the early days.

On her episode of Journey to Wellness, Carrie Ann brought up the Stuff magazine shoot the two did together in 2007. They both started laughing at how they looked back then, with Carrie Ann quipping, “I have obviously fake boobs I’m not sure what’s up with that cleavage.

She also said, “Our fake tanners in the very first seasons, we have to give them credit!” to which Cheryl had a confession.

“Let me tell you something Carrie Ann — I used to tan and we got into trouble. Conrad Green, our old manager, would be hunting me and Edyta [Sliwinska]one of the older pro dancers, the OGs, literally through the crowd because he was like, ‘Stop tanning, you look like Oompa Loompas!’” laughed Cheryl.

Then she added: “I was like, ‘But a tan, you know, is like a layer of skin, it’s like clothes for me,’ so we hid it and locked the trailer [Green] and then we started tanning each other.”

Conrad Green served as the show’s executive producer from 2005 to 2013, and Edyta Sliwinska was a professional dancer on the show from season one through season 10, then came back for season 22.

“I love you so much,” Carrie Ann said, laughing as Cheryl related the story. “You see, dancers just take matters into their own hands. We make it! Because you can’t wear fishnet stockings [without being tan]. You’re going to want three more coats of tan.”

Cheryl also said it’s “crazy” how long they’ve been doing the show

Reminiscing, both ladies said it was a little overwhelming how long they’d been on the show. In fact, Cheryl only thought she would only do one season of the show.

“My goal was never to be on TV…come here and just think I’d stay one season and now be here 25 seasons…I was part of 25 out of 30, wow. It’s so crazy,” Cheryl said.

“Once on ‘Larry King Live’, [Cheryl] said she didn’t think they would go beyond 14 or 15 seasons,” said Carrie Ann.

“I know it sounds kind of cliche… it’s really like family, especially for us dancers and the judges,” added Cheryl.

Dancing With the Stars has not yet been renewed for season 31. If extended, it will return in September 2022.
