4/16/2016 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cheryl Burke's got a deep-seated hatred for her former "Dancing With the Stars" partner Ian Ziering.

Burke revealed being around Ziering 24/7 drove her so nuts it made her "want to slit [her] wrists." The grizzly confession went down on Matt Weiss and Theo Von's "Allegedly" podcast.

Burke and Ziering were eliminated in the semi-finals back in season 4 -- but according to Burke, she practically begged producers to give her the axe way before then.

The podcast will be released on iTunes Tuesday.

It all went down Friday afternoon after Erin landed in L.A. -- and you'll see in this clip ... she was fine talking to our camera guy and with a nearby still photographer.

"Dancing With The Stars" pro Keo Motsepe is probably still recovering from getting his balls nearly crushed during rehearsals Thursday ... and it was all caught on tape!

Motsepe was in the middle of turning his partner Jodie Sweetin when her microphone pack got loose, started swinging and yanked the mic cord right where it hurts most.

3/23/2016 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips says the NFL should absolutely panicked about the idea of Peyton Manning coaching ... saying if the ex-QB ever put on a headset he could take over the league.

We got Phillips leaving The Griddle in L.A. where he attempted to finish a pancake (seriously, you seen those things?) and asked and if he thought Peyton would make for a great head coach someday.

The short answer is yes ... with Wade telling our camera guy if Peyton ever decided to call signals from the sidelines instead of under center ... the entire league would be in serious trouble.

Bonus awesomeness? Wade gives us his expert opinion on Von Miller's chances of winning "Dancing with the Stars" and if you don't think Wade's a dancing expert ... check out the video below.

Doug Flutie's yoked. 

Here's the 53-year-old ex-NFL star leaving "Dancing with the Stars" Wednesday ... puttin' on a gun show in the parking lot. 

Yeah, we asked him about some Johnny Manziel stuff (he's a fan) ... but if Johnny ever wants to have a shot in the league, he should probably take some weight lifting tips from D.F.  

Von Miller Fined By 'DWTS' Partner $100 For Every Minute You're Late!!

3/14/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0311-von-miller-instagram-01Von Miller is literally losing cash by the minute on "Dancing with the Stars" ... 'cause the NFL superstar's dance partner is FINING HIM $100 for every minute he's late to rehearsal.

Our 'DWTS' sources tell TMZ Sports Von's partner -- Witney Carson -- came up with the system as a way to ensure he was on time for practice.

The tally so far ... $500 from when Von was 5 minutes late to Thursday's rehearsal. The money goes straight into Witney's pockets ... so ya gotta imagine she wasn't too upset.

FYI -- Miller's slated to make around $14 million next season, so he can afford to lose a few Benjamins.

Bad news for Mark Ballas ... you're going to get your ass kicked -- courtesy of UFC superstar Paige VanZant

Paige joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airing Friday on FS1) -- when she told us her "Dancing with the Stars" partner really believes he could last 1 MINUTE with her in the octagon. 

So, Paige says she's calling his bluff -- insisting Mark has agreed to put his money where his (soon-to-be bruised) mouth is and square off with her ... a la Turtle vs. Rousey in the "Entourage" movie. 

Paige says Mark wants to push the fight back (presumably until after the 'Dancing' finale) because he doesn't want to risk getting hurt ... but insists, "It's happening."

Nice knowing ya Ballas ...

This. Is. Hysterical.

Doug Flutie has "Dancing with the Stars" all locked up ... because he got some incredible -- and hilarious -- dance advice from a trusted and experienced voice ... a TMZ camera guy.

Flutie was out in NYC doing a little press for 'DWTS' when one of our photogs, Adam, decided he'd lend the NFL legend a helping hand ... and show him a move that will surely defeat his opposition.

You gotta see this -- Doug is rendered speechless by the gyrations he witnesses on the streets of New York, and doesn't seem like he's too interested in recreating them for America.

Hey Flutie ... don't knock it till you try it.

Breaking News

022416-erin-andrews-twitterErin Andrews broke down in court when her father took the stand in the trial of the man who secretly recorded her nude in her hotel room.

Andrews is suing Michael David Barrett and Marriott hotels over the infamous videos he shot through a peep hole in an adjoining hotel room to Erin's. Her father, Steve Andrews, testified in a Nashville courtroom about how the recordings devastated his daughter.

He said, "She's afraid. She's afraid of crowds, afraid of people. She doesn't trust anymore."

He added that Erin puked just thinking about watching the videos. The FBI had asked her to view the clips to help agents find clues about who shot them.

Barrett got a 2 year prison sentence after pleading guilty to interstate stalking.

The FOX Sports and "Dancing With the Stars" host filed a civil suit for $75 million
