Playing Cheryl Burke Drops More 'Dancing With the Stars' Bombshells, Says Maksim Chmerkovskiy Is a 'Good Kisser': 'Ya Know, Things Happen'

Cheryl Burke is clearly not holding back when it comes to her time on Dancing With the Stars.

The 31-year-old dancer recently made an appearance on the Allegedly With Theo Von & Matthew Cole podcast, and aside from slamming her season four partner, Ian Ziering, she also got candid on all of the DWTS hookups.

"I think we all dated each other at one point," she admitted about the dancing pros on the show. "All of us dancers, we've known each other -- [Maksim Chmerkovskiy], we've known each other since I was 12 and he was, like, maybe 15, I think he is three years older than me -- so ya know, things happen."

Burke insisted that the two never dated. However, she claimed they did kiss.

"He was a good kisser," she said about the 36-year-old dancer, who's now engaged to fellow DWTS pro Peta Murgatroyd. "Maks is a good kisser."

She also apparently had some "fun" with 29-year-old Mark Ballas.

"I think we tried to have fun ... Ya know, stuff happens," she said coyly. "People interrupt or, you know, something happens."

When it comes to her celebrity partners, Burke admitted she almost always had to look them up beforehand because she didn't know who they were. Ironically, the one partner she didn't have to look up was her least favorite partner ever, Ziering.

"By the way, I also don't know anybody, so I would have to Google almost every single partner of mine, other than Ian Ziering because I used to watch 90210," she shared. “My mom, my crazy Asian mother, would let me watch an hour a week, and I would watch 90210, 8 p.m. on Wednesdays. I'm like, 'Why, couldn't you give me Luke Perry or Jason Priestley? Why you give me that guy?' I know he's on 90210, but give me Screech [Saved by the Bell actor Dustin Diamond]."

Burke, who revealed that she would cry to the executives to let her and Ziering off the show early, said there's actually no way for a pro to reject a partner because of the contract they sign.

... She did, however, think about injuring herself as a way to get out of it.

"I mean, I could try and hurt myself," she said. "I thought about that a couple of times. I've got a balcony and was like, 'Should I jump?'...I wouldn't die. I wouldn't die. No. I wouldn't die. I would just be like, 'Hey guys, I'm injured this season. I won't be able to come back 'til next season.'"

"Anyone over the age of 65 I wanted to jump," she added, although she was quick to note that her season five partner, 74-year-old Wayne Newton, was "lovely."

Meanwhile, Ziering is definitely aware of Burke's unflattering comments. On Monday, he thanked a former colleague on Twitter who stood up for him.

"For what it's worth I've worked with @IanZiering on stage and on TV and loved the dude every time. #NiceGuy," TV host Jaymes Vaughan, who worked with Ziering during his Chippendales run in Las Vegas, tweeted.

"Thanks Jaymes ..." Ziering replied back.
