Although Burgess didn’t name it, she competed with Jesse Metcalfe in the show’s 29th season. The duo was eliminated in the fourth week.
Metcalfe’s publicist released a statement to TVLine.
“If she is referring to a time when our client Jesse Metcalfe worked with Ms. Burgess four years ago, the only memory was that they did not get along,” the statement said. “Vague insinuations are not only reckless, but also irrelevant.”
Representatives for Metcalfe did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
Sharna also opened up about other seasons she’s been a part of, including the challenges she and Green faced in their personal relationship.
“The same executive producer that’s no longer there, I didn’t like what he did with the show,” Burgess said. “Hearing people around me say that they were really trying to shine a light on our relationship, not his neurological stuff, not his experience, not our work together, but almost saying that our relationship was the problem with dancing a one way or another…
“I texted someone at that time and said, ‘Hey, that’s not what we signed up for. If that’s what you want for us, you need to just eliminate us because we can’t do that.’ And then we were quickly eliminated.”
