Brooke Burke-Charvet crashed her car early Wednesday morning and blamed it on a faulty steering wheel, TMZ reports.

After the accident, Burke-Charvet, 42, predicted the gossip website's interest in her mishap but assured fans she is safe – and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

"Rough morning. Accident on my way 2 work. Tons of cops & of course photogs, TMZ will have fun with this one," she Tweeted. "...Yes I was sober."

"I'm totally fine tweeties. What an exaggeration TMZ. Hilarious headlines, boy-what-you-guys-will-do. Just an accident. No biggie," Burke-Charvet added later.

"Of course officers had me do a sobriety test. Thx CHP for taking care of all of us, too bad the photogs blow it out of proportion."

The TV personality drove her Maserati through a fence in Calabasas, Calif., according to TMZ. The site also reported that police say she passed a sobriety test.

Burke-Charvet was recently ousted from Dancing with the Stars after hosting the show for seven seasons. She is next set to guest star on ABC Family's Melissa & Joey.
