Former ‘DWTS’ Co-Host Samantha Harris Reacts to Tyra Banks’ Hiring
On Wednesday morning, “Extra’s” Billy Bush spoke to former “Dancing with the Stars” co-host Samantha Harris after news broke that Tyra Banks would be taking over as host and executive producer of the show.
Banks is replacing Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, whose departures were announced earlier this week. Samantha, who co-hosted with Tom for eight seasons, reacted to his exit, saying, “Well, you know, first of all, Tom is sort of a fixture on that show for 28 seasons. He is the glue that has held that show together… So it had to be blindsiding and devastating.”
