Celebrities with Boston ties respond to bombings

Even under these circumstances, the show must go on, says “Dancing With the Stars” host Tom Bergeron. Tearfully, the Haverhill native told the TV show “Extra” that his wife and daughter were both in downtown Boston Monday when the bombs detonated.

“It was the hardest show I have ever done,” he said about Monday’s show. “[My wife] was the one that texted me first to let me know what was going on. She was in lockdown in a hotel. . . . I worked in Boston for years, I know how valuable that marathon is, that last mile was dedicated to the families of Newtown. . . . We love you, Boston.”
