‘Dancing With the Stars’ Pro Suffers Scary Head Injury Before Show

While preparing for “Villains Night” on Dancing With the Stars, professional dancer and DWTS mainstay Cheryl Burke had a scary fall in rehearsal, hitting her head on the ballroom floor. Burke is partnered with Backstreet Boys star AJ McLean.


Burke let her fans know about the mishap, sharing an update on Instagram on the day of the “Villains Night” episode. In a caption, she wrote, “Yesterday, I took a hard fall while rehearsing for #VillainsNight. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Even though AJ kills me at the end of this Tango, this wasn’t part of the routine. It’s one of those things that can happen in a split second. Thankfully, I have the best partner I could ask for that was there to pick me up off the ground.” McLean took to Instagram to let his followers know about the accident, too. Of Burke’s fall in rehearsals, he reflected, “I know this week’s theme is supposed to be scary, but this took it to a very real level. Thank you all for the well wishes and the love you are sending Cheryl’s way. She is the epitome of a badass and I am so proud to be her partner.

A clip shared ahead of the October 26 episode shows that Burke’s fall will be addressed on the show. In an on-camera interview, McLean reveals, “Cheryl and I were practicing during stage rehearsal and it did not go well. It happened so fast, I just heard her head hit the floor.”

New episodes of Dancing With the Stars season 29 air on Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.

FARMINGTON — An Ogden man who police say was intoxicated when he crashed the ATV he was riding, killing his passenger, has been charged.

Matthew Daniel Murphy, 40, was charged Monday in 2nd District Court with automobile homicide, a second-degree felony.

On Sept. 12, Murphy was riding an off-highway vehicle in Farmington Canyon with 30-year-old Trevor Dykes.

“Murphy later described he and Dykes drank several beers while driving through Farmington Canyon in the OHV,” according to charging documents.

Murphy told police at one point he hit his brakes, and his vehicle went sideways toward a cliff, the charges state.

“Murphy turned the wheel, causing the OHV to spin around and stop with its back tires hanging over the edge of the cliff. The OHV then started to slowly tip over backward off the cliff. The OHV then rolled down the hill numerous times resulting in Dykes’ death,” according to charging documents.

Search and rescue crews later found Dykes’ body still strapped into the OHV. Murphy’s blood alcohol content still measured at 0.11% an hour after the crash occurred, the charges state.

90 Day Fiance: Chantel’s Mom Karen Blasts Pedro’s Family

90 Day Fiance star Karen Everett blasted her son-in-law’s family. Karen said she was confused as to why Pedro Jimeno’s mother Lidia didn’t seem to like his sister Nicole’s new boyfriend, Alejandro.

“It’s very confusing to me. I don’t know that she even knows Alessandro,” Karen told Heavy in an exclusive interview. “I don’t really know anything about Nicole or Lydia other than what I said on the previous seasons–and everything that I said was true.”

Karen has a rocky relationship with Pedro’s family, stemming back to Karen accusing Lydia of orchestrating Chantel’s marriage to Pedro so he could get a green card. Chantel and Pedro lied to her family when he first came to the U.S., staying he was there to study when in reality they were getting married.

As time has passed, Karen would be open to reconciling her differences with Pedro’s. “I’m a person that can surmount things like that and what’s done is done is. What I like to say is let bygones be bygones. I believe everyone deserves a second chance… if they would like to have a second chance, I don’t know,” she said. “I went over there. We met in an alley. I saw the woman stand up and I didn’t know what she was saying. She might have been posturing to do something.”

Karen Says Pedro’s Family said ‘A Lot of Ugly, Nasty Things About Us’


Forgiving and forgetting might not be easy for the two families to do and Karen wasn’t confident they’d make amends. “They say a lot of ugly, nasty things about us, No. 1 and No. 2, they said a lot of ugly, nasty things about us prior to having met us.”

Karen brought up Lidia’s website. On earlier episodes of 90 Day Fiance, Chantel’s mother claimed Pedro’s family was trying to “harvest U.S. dollars” by finding Americans to marry Pedro. As noted by Starcasm, the website Karen is talking about has since been defunct, though it never claimed to be looking for women for Pedro to marry. Instead, it appeared to be an online legal services business.

Chantel and Pedro met through their mutual friend Obed, who said he ran Lidia’s website. It was he who told Karen he was helping arrange marriages for Lidia. Karen’s allegations have led some naysayers–refers to her haters as “wishers and puppets”–to accuse her of prejudice, but she says it’s …read more
