Brooke Burke-Charvet: My Cats 'Rule the House'

Originally posted 06/13/2013 02:30PM

With four kids at home, Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet has a full household. But if you ask her, it's really run by her other two little ones: cats Tazzy and Willow.

"They kind of rule the house," she tells PEOPLE of her pets, whom she rescued four years ago. "They love to lounge outside in the backyard. They love to eat. They love to hang on the couch with the kids. They kind of do whatever the heck they want to do in the house, to tell you the truth."

Though she originally intended to only bring home one cat, the star says she was swayed after meeting the pair of felines – to her children's delight.

Amid the death and destruction facing families left displaced by the tornado that struck several suburbs of Oklahoma on Monday, a handful of residents have been fortunate to return to the sites of their homes and come face-to-face with their furry friends.

Earlier in the week, Barbara Garcia was reunited with her missing dog during an on-camera interview, in which a member of the CBS News crew spotted her pup struggling to escape the debris.

Garcia's story is just one of many touching reunions, such as that of June Simson (above). Upon returning to the remains of her home, she discovered her cat, Sammi, covered in dirt but alive, standing atop the rubble.

Things are not all purr-fect at the Broadway production of Breakfast at Tiffany's, which opened Wednesday night in New York City.

Only hours before the show's evening bow, it was announced that Montie, a black-and-white male that served as the play's main understudy, was fired after failing to obey instructions.

But "while there are others who are joining the production as understudies and covers, Montie will remain at the theater indefinitely," publicist Rick Miramontez said in a statement, a nod to Montie's owner, Babette Corelli, who is in charge of training cats for the show.
