There’s some serious remodeling going on over at “Dancing With the Stars” these days, and the latest update is that Erin Andrews will replace Brooke Burke-Charvet as the show’s host/resident eye-candy.

Following the firing of band leader Harold Wheeler and his 28-member ensemble earlier this month, the DWTS honchos decided to give Brooke the old heave-ho and brought in the beautiful FOX Sports reporter instead.

Over the weekend, Burke-Charvet took to her Twitter account with a series of messages to her many fans. She began, "Weird day ... Shocking pre-season elimination #DWTS . . . ME. Tom Bergeron didn't even read my name. I won't be returning to the show this season,” followed by, "Thanks for all the love & support. I loved my time in the ballroom & I'll love my next chapter too. Change is positive. Love you guys!"

Later, Brooke noted, "So much chatter bout DWTS. I'm really cool, everyone. I did my 7 seasons, had a blast! I'm ready for change. I love your loyalty. Thank you!" and, "Here's the skinny -- the show found out Harold Wheeler, the band, Rob & me were putting together our own road show, so they fired us all! Off to bed with my sense of humor. I was totally kidding, Tweeties. Night nite! Sweet dreams."

And executive producer Conrad Green told press, "[Brooke has] been a wonderful part of the Dancing With the Stars family since her triumphant win in season 7 and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We'd like to thank Brooke for her years of great service."
