AceShowbiz - Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green have set the record straight on swirling speculation that they were "salty" regarding their elimination on "Dancing With the Stars". In a new video, the couple, who left the competition show on October 12, revealed the reasons why they didn't do post-show interviews.
"I just wanted to clear something up real quick because I think this is said in a couple of press releases," the 36-year-old ballroom dancer began explaining in her Instagram Story shared on October 13. "We didn't leave before press started, we did wait a good 30 minutes on the Zoom link greenroom waiting for everyone to do press."
Sharna continued defending herself, pointing out that "apparently there was a big mix-up with the Zoom links" that night. The professional dancer added, "And then we had to go to the people that were getting us out of our wigs and [makeup]. There were people waiting for us to do that."
Brian, who has been dating Sharna for almost a year, said, "So we weren't, like, salty and wanting to f**king storm out of there." Sharna echoed her boyfriend's sentiment, noting that "no one is salty." She stressed, "Everyone in the competition is absolutely amazing and we are deeply grateful for our time on it."
"Thank you so much, everybody, that, like, supported us and voted for us and was there for us," Brian added. The "BH90210" alum shared his thoughts about competing on the ABC show with his partner, "It was really a great experience for us, not just with the people we met, but with the fans that supported us and just getting to dance with each other."
Though their experience on "DWTS" season 10 was short-lived, Sharna shared that she wants viewers to know the process was her sweetest run. "It's all love and it is all good and we did not skip out on press," she confessed.
"We've been talking about trying to do a live [on Instagram] maybe later in the week, so we can do a little recap for you guys on our experience, and maybe take some of your questions if you want us to," Sharna told her fans. "For now, we're just going to enjoy each other today and enjoy not having anything to do rather than that."
Prior to their exit, Sharna and Brian faced criticism from the judges for kissing too much while dancing on stage. From their performance, the pair scored 25 out of 40 points, putting them at the bottom of the leaderboard.
