Brooke Burke Charvet crashed her expensive Maserati into a chain link fence earlier this morning while driving through Calabasas, California. The star, who was recently fired from her Dancing with the Stars co-hosting gig, blamed the accident on a faulty steering wheel, claiming that that’s what caused her to lose control. And based on the sobriety test she passed, authorities are inclined to believe that she’s telling the truth . . . or, at the very least, able to confirm that alcohol wasn’t a factor in this equation that led to a crash.
Her car incurred relatively little damage and Brooke wasn’t injured. This accident probably was a result of a faulty steering wheel (which is kind of a weird thing to hear about, but whatevs) as she claims, or it very well could be that the stress/worry she incurred after being nixed from the popular dancing show is finally catching up to her. We’ve already seen instances of her adopting a bad girl image, perhaps in an effort to rebel and attract new opportunities. Do you think the DWTS firing is negatively influencing her more than she wants people to believe?
We hope Brooke rests up after this scary little accident. If the steering wheel really was faulty, could you imagine what the result could’ve been if she was speeding down the freeway. How scary!
