Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green address rumors they were ‘salty’ about Dancing with the Stars elimination
Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green spoke out about rumors they were ‘salty’ regarding their elimination on this week’s Dancing with the Stars.
The couple — who were also dance partners on Season 30 — were accused of exiting the competition show in a bitter fashion after fans noticed they did not do any interviews after the elimination.
Clarifying that their absence for press was a ‘big mix-up’ they provided details on the matter and maintained ‘No one is salty.’

In an Instagram story, the pair detailed what went down after this week’s double elimination — which also saw Bachelor Matt James and his partner Lindsay Arnold go home.
‘I just wanted to clean something up real quick because I think this is said in a couple of press releases, we didn’t leave before press started, we did wait a good 30 minutes on the Zoom link greenroom waiting for everyone to do press,’ Sharna clarified.
‘But nothing came through to us, apparently there was a big mix-up with the Zoom links last night. And then we had to go to the people that were getting us out of our wigs and [makeup]. … There were people waiting for us to do that.’

The theme for the week had been Disney Heroes and Disney Villains, and the pair exited on the second night after dancing to the song He’s a Pirate, from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl.
Off-stage love: In early October Sharna had responded to fan chatter that their relationship of nearly a year was a ‘showmance’ and that they had an advantage in the competition for being a real-life couple; pictured September 29
The pair had been criticized during their Disney Heroes performance on night one — which was Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs inspired — for showing too much PDA.
Judge Len Goodman said that he wasn’t a fan of the ‘kissing and cuddling and messing about,’ and would have preferred to see them do a much more ‘traditional waltz,’ per their dance assignment.
The week prior Sharna had responded to fan chatter that their relationship of nearly a year was a ‘showmance’ and that they had an advantage in the competition for being a real-life couple.
‘This isn’t a showmance, this is real life love and it’s a part of our journey. Every step. Every struggle. Every success. And anyone that thinks it’s an advantage I can assure you, it’s not. ITS SUPER HARD!’
