The two are not only still in touch, but Burgess told her fans that they have gotten “even closer.” “He’s one of my favorite humans, a best friend, family, and a mentor for me,” she said according to Us Weekly. “I’m so invested in his happiness and success. I also know how much he just cringed reading this. He isn’t good at receiving love and praise … but he deserves it all the time.”

The dancer said she was surprised that the show won’t return in the spring

It was previously announced that Dancing with the Stars won’t be returning in the spring as it has since the start of the show. Sharna Burgess revealed that she wasn’t expecting that news.

When the news came out I was incredibly surprised,” Burgess told Entertainment Tonight. “I knew it was a bit of a conversation, there was a buzz about it.” She then continued saying “We’re trying to figure out what we wanna do with that spring/summer time for us,” then “We’re going to confirm that date.”

There were some rumors that the push back was a sign that the show wasn’t doing so hot in ratings. But the professional dancer doesn’t believe the dance competition is at risk at all. “This show is such a fan favorite,” she said. “I mean, come on, it’s not going anywhere! We’re gonna do 30, 35, maybe 45 seasons! I’ll have babies and be married, retired by that point, but this is DWTS… it isn’t going anywhere.”

So Sharna Burgess and Bobby Bones seem to be good friends. The dancer also is confident that the show will continue for many more years.
