*Fans of “Dancing With the Stars” already know that host Tom Bergeron has a quick wit — always ad-libbing little comments on the fly.

This is precisely why he’s telling producers that they might wanna keep him far away from Chris Brown when he comes on Tuesday’s results show to perform.

“Here’s the thing,” he told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this morning. “I did say to the producers that it might be to their advantage to not have me interview him, because my natural tendency would be to say something.

“You know? 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?'”

As previously reported, Brown is still scheduled to perform on the ABC show, even though he smashed a window in anger last week following an appearance on “Good Morning America.”

Bergeron said of ABC brass: “They’ll probably have me in a Hannibal Lecter suit.”
