Burke had to exit last night due to her partner Ray Lewis' foot injury. “I’ve been on the show for 22 seasons so, I think everything that you could possibly imagine has happened to me,” Burke says, noting that she's had to drop out due to partner injuries before. “Wayne Newton had to bow out around this time (in Season 5) and Tom DeLay fractured both his feet and had to bow out (in Season 9) and now, this. It happens. It’s sad. It’s too soon.” Burke says she might serve as a mentor, but she'd really like to serve as a judge.
