After being eliminated from the Dancing With the Stars competition on April 16, comedian DL Hughley had something quite interesting to share about his partner, Cheryl Burke.
“Cheryl has a wonderful body and a nice [butt], but it was hard to drag across the floor," the 50-year-old hilariously told Life & Style. "I had to make two trips!"

But there were no hard feelings from the pro — “I keep telling him, I get it from my Mama!” Cheryl responded.
After receiving a 18/30 score on Monday night’s show for their tango, DL wasn’t surprised by the elimination.
“My heart is very sad, but my knees are happy as hell,” he said. “I think we took the ride as long as we could. I thought the days were getting longer and the dancing was getting tougher.”
Had they not been eliminated, the 9th place pair would have had to learn two dances for next week — something that didn’t exactly appeal to DL.
“He said if he had to learn them, he’d have to pull a hamstring,” Cheryl tells Life & Style, with the actor admitting he even learned to practice the injury!

But all jokes aside, he says, “I would've kept [dancing] as long as the fans kept me on, [but] the votes couldn't keep up with the scores every week.”
Watch the final eight couples dance on Monday, 8 p.m. ET on ABC — and tune in Tuesday at 9 p.m. to see which star is voted off.
