Viewers have never seen a season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars like this one. Aside from being an All-Star season, there has never been a guest judge on the talent competition. Paula Abdul was the first.

“We loved having her, she’s so fun,” DWTS host Brooke Burke told Celebuzz recently at a Brita and Alliance for a Healthier Generation event in Pasadena, Calif.

“I’ve always been a fan,” she added. “I think it was a blast. I loved seeing her go after Bruno [Tonoli].”

Putting together the All-star cast was not easy.

“I think it’s really hard to compile an All-Star cast,” The 41-year-old tells us. “You know, our producers said in the very beginning it’s literally taken 15 seasons to put together the right cast.”

Burke says it takes a special kind of person to become an All-Star. “You’ve got to be kind of crazy to do our show and then to come back and do it again. Especially if you are a champion.”

But one thing’s for sure the mother of four loves all the changes. “It’s my favorite season so far,” she explained.
