During an Instagram live Q&A with her subscribers, Burke was asked if she would go back to competing professionally in the ballroom world after she retires from the show. To that, she had an emphatic no, but she did tease that she hopes to have “news to announce soon” that will keep her on fans’ TV screens.

Burke said:

No, that would be a negative [on returning to competing]. Competition is a whole other beast than “Dancing With the Stars.” I would be, as a woman in the competitive world, especially as a pro, you retire, I would say early 30s. I’m in my late 30s … I do need to listen to my body, which is saying it’s time. It’s time. It is time to hang up those dance shoes.

Thank you for all your sweet comments about the dancing, I’m going to miss you guys too. But hopefully I’ll still be gracing your television screens, so we’ll see. We’ll see if I have any new news to announce soon. I’m hoping, just waiting. Waiting for it to happen, so hopefully it’ll happen soon.

Fans Think Burke Has Been Hinting at Taking Over for Goodman

On Reddit, fans think that all of Burke’s retirement talk that includes her saying she would like to be part of the show in some capacity means that she’s been hinting at joining the judges’ panel.

After her elimination in season 31, Burke told “Entertainment Tonight” in a post-show interview, “Give me another job on the show. There’s lots of different titles. But I have had the same one since 2006. Hopefully, it’s within this family — if not, that’s OK too — but, like anybody, you know, you like to get promoted.”

She added, “I mean, with no commercial breaks, I think they can squeeze another [judge] in there, right?”
