Tom Bergeron Recalls “Butting Heads” Before DWTS Exit

As for whether he suffered a “blue period” after his exit, that was far from the case. “I wasn’t surprised that that was my last season, so there was no blue period,” he said. “Actually, I think Erin [Andrews] and I had more fun being fired than virtually anybody.”

For example, after finding out Tyra Banks, who shares his initials, was their replacement, Bergeron tweeted, “I guess I won’t be getting back my monogrammed towels.”

Despite how things ended, some involved with the show still have Bergeron’s support. “They’re entitled to do the show the way they think is best, and so, I look back at the time I spent there with really great fondness for the vast majority of it,” he told Saget. “And also there are people there on the show performing that I still care about, and I want them to have long careers. I want people to still watch it and support them and understand that sure, it’s different. But, you know, there’s still very, very talented people who were going to be on your screens in the fall.”
