Chris Brown will appear as planned on Dancing with the Stars tonight, but host Tom Bergeron says producers shouldn't expect him to interview the singer unless they want to see someone bust a window. Bergeron says he can't promise to avoid mentioning Brown's well-publicized temper tantrum following his Good Morning America appearance last week, E! Online reports.

"I did say to the producers it might be to their advantage to not have me interview him, because my natural tendency would be to say something,” Bergeron told American Idol host Ryan Seacrest on Seacrest's radio show. “So don’t put me in a position where you’re asking me to not say something, cause I won’t really do that. Even if it's just a snarky little aside, you know, 'How was your week?'" he said. "They'll probably have me in a Hannibal Lecter suit," he quipped. (More Chris Brown Good Morning America stories.)
