Hours after announcing that Sean Spicer has joined the cast of the 28th season of Dancing With the Stars, host Tom Bergeron took to Twitter to not-so-subtly slam ABC's decision to book the former White House press secretary on the reality competition series. "My hope [was] that DWTS...would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of any inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations," the 64-year-old Bergeron wrote Wednesday about the upcoming season. "A decision was made to, as we often say in Hollywood, 'go in a different direction.'" Bergeron never mentions Spicer by name in the post, by goes on to tell fans that he hopes they're still "able to enjoy the charismatic pro dancers, the unpredictable judges and the kitschy charm that has defined DWTS since 2005." The new season of DWTS, which also stars Ray Lewis, Lamar Odom, Christie Brinkley, and James Van Deer Beek, premieres September 16.
