Dancing With the Stars' Secret Curse: Broken Balls!

DWTS, Drew Lachey, Cheryl Burke ABC

We thought Shawn Johnson was the only one who had trouble with her Dancing With the Stars disco ball trophy, but we just found out she is not alone.

"I've seen Cheryl Burke's trophy fall apart!" season three champ and football legend Emmitt Smith told us last night at the Free the Slaves Freedom Awards in L.A. "That trophy she got with Drew [Lachey]—I've seen it fall apart!"

And little does Smith know, but the one Burke took home when she helped him win didn't hold up too well either...

"Both her trophies broke, actually," Burke's rep just told us. "The words Dancing With the Stars broke on one of them, and the mirrors fell off the other."

Like Johnson, Burke's trophies were repaired by the show.

While Smith says his trophy—which he keeps in his family room next to the fireplace—is "nothing special," his wife Patricia says it's become a main attraction of their home.

"It's funny because people don't want to see his Super Bowl trophies," Patricia said. "They all want to see the Dancing With the Stars trophy. So we put it right in front so everybody can see it."
