tom bergeron george lopez 'Dancing With the Stars': What did Tom Bergeron do to Michael Bolton?As you may know, we’re recent Tom Bergeron converts. So while it pains us that he can’t host every show on television, at least everyone keeps an open guest chair for him.

The “Dancing With the Stars” M.C. visits George Lopez for the Sept. 30 broadcast. And apparently he kicks off the episode with a dig at the recently eliminated Michael Bolton — who’s currently on a publicity tour to shame judge Bruno Tonioli for being “too mean.” [Editor’s note: being a seasoned, 57-year-old performer doesn’t make you immune from criticism, but it really should mean you should know how to take it.]

So what exactly did Bergeron do to shame Bolton for the second time in one week? All we know of it is an apology clip released by “Lopez Tonight” (below), in which he makes a tongue-in-cheek plea to Bolton: “It’s important that we really, really white people stick together. They made me do that opening sketch.”

Oh Bergs, you kill us — though not as much as the time we’ll have to wait to find out what you did. Our very reasonable guess involves him in something animal print, crawling out of a prop dog house (fingers crossed) to vaguely recognizable muzak. Feel free to check out this teaser and formulate your own idea:
