Elizabeth Berkley's mother Jere and father Fred have always nourished their daughter's dancing dreams: entering her into classes at 5, creating a rehearsal space in their basement and shuttling her to 17 lessons a week.

Indeed, Twitter critics have also called out trained dancer Corbin Bleu and pop star Christina Milianas reported.

And Jere believes that the voices of Elizabeth's fans drown out those of her haters.

"I don't think everybody is even saying that she's a ringer anyways," Jere insists. "But I really can't talk about it. I'm not a publicist!"

Regardless, she'll definitely be tuning in when the show premieres on Monday, September 16.

She tells, "I am excited!"
