Samantha Harris leaving 'Dancing With the Stars'



Tbd-samanthaharris020110 All you Dancing With the Stars fans, get ready for a heavy blow: Samantha Harris will not return as co-host when the show arrives for a ninth season on March 22. Don't worry, it was her decision, not ABC's.

(DWTS) could not have been more of a dream job,” she told People. “I loved every single second of it and I’ve made lifelong friends at the show.”

Samantha has decided to work on other stuff, like doing more correspondent work on The Insider. Did you know she studied journalism at Northwestern? Suddenly we're very interested.

“I interned at Entertainment Tonight 15 years ago, the summer after my sophomore year at Northwestern and I dreamed of working in the same space as hosts Mary Hart and Mark Steines and now I’m living that dream,” Harris said. Yeah, that was what The Juice* was thinking when we graduated from J-school a hundred years ago.
