Cheryl Burke: You?re stuck with yourself for life, you better like yourself
Former Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke has had a turbulent past couple years. Early in 2022 she filed for divorce from Matthew Lawrence after three years of marriage, and hinted it was due to cheating on his part. A year later Matthew got together with Chilli Thomas and publicly declared that his life was ?in complete bloom.? Most harrowing of all was the court custody case over their baby, French bulldog Ysabella (Cheryl won in the end). Amid her divorce drama, Cheryl also left her professional home of DWTS in 2022 after 26 seasons, but she is now returning in a new capacity (I guess they?ve shaken off her calling them out for strike breaking). No stranger to podcasts ? she hosted Pretty Messed Up for two years ? Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans will see Cheryl interviewing past celebrity DWTS contestants for a glimpse behind the mirror ball. While hyping the show to Yahoo?s The Unwind series, Cheryl reflected on difficult transitions in life and dance:

She was scared to say yes to DWTS: ?I remember being asked to do Dancing With the Stars,? she says. ?I was also living in Harlem at the time with my dance partner/boyfriend, and I was very comfortable there. I was scared to say yes to the show. And it took a long time for me to actually say, ?OK, I?m going to try this.? There?s a difference of feeling like, ?No, I shouldn?t do this,? like following your intuition and [knowing] ?this is not a good idea? versus ?I?m scared to do it, but I know I should.??

Bodily intuition: ?For me, I know there?s always something that I feel in my body,? she explains. ?Specifically, when [something] is not a good choice or something fishy is happening, it feels like my heart just dropped down to my stomach, like I?m on a roller coaster ride. I can choose to listen to it or not. Every time I didn?t listen to it, my life became stagnant, my whole energy became stagnant.?

No change without awareness: ?You?ve got to step back from your own thoughts for a second and just observe.? And sometimes, when you do that, you may realize it?s time to create significant change ? in your relationship with yourself and with others. ?You are who you hang out with, you are who you?re raised by, you are your environment ? unless you consciously change it,? points out Burke. ?It?s like breaking a bad habit. There?s no mental health improvement without awareness.?

Her therapies have a mind-body balance: As she?s forged ahead into a whole new chapter of her life this year, Burke has prioritized her mental health by working with both a talk therapist and somatic therapist, who focuses on how emotions are felt in the body. She?s also tapping into the power of other mind-body practices, including transcendental meditation, which she says she has aimed to do twice daily since separating from Lawrence.

A pandemic in itself: ?Suffering [when it comes to] mental health is a pandemic in itself. No one wants to talk about it. In order to normalize it, we have to talk about it? I?m going to do this work forever. It?s never gonna stop, that?s the thing. I will always be healing, I will always be working on me. And at the end of the day, it?s because I?m stuck with me. You?re stuck with [yourself] for the rest of your life, and you better like yourself.?

[From Yahoo! Life]

?You?re stuck with [yourself] for the rest of your life, and you better like yourself.? Oof, that?s a biggie. When I was in my early twenties I found myself saying to a teacher that I thought it was in bad taste to like myself. He very kindly suggested that I might want to take a look at that. We humans are funny creatures. Most of us spend a great portion of our lives figuring out just how to be? ourselves. You?d think that would be the one area where you had an advantage, given that you?re the only you out there. But no. We struggle to unpack the influences, circumstances, and Beyonce albums that have affected us the most, and next sift through what?s helping us versus what we can shed. Then to compound things, we?ve upheld a centuries-old tradition of assigning shame to honest conversations about mental health and self esteem. Outside of a Pixar movie, no other animal on this planet tortures themselves this way. I?m with Cheryl, we have to talk about it. And I love how she?s gone full hippie with somatic therapy and transcendental meditation. On that note, I?ll leave you with the first line (spoken, not sung) of the stage show HAIR: ?Transcendental meditation on the ocean of reality is love.?

Cheryl Burke recently met the sister she's never known
I know who Cheryl Burke is but I don?t know much about her. I?m only qualifying that because I was just reading up on her for this story and oh my gosh, the poor woman has been through so much in the past year. It sounds like a real roller coaster, which made me appreciate this story even more. Last year, Cheryl was asked to replace Abby Lee Miller on Dance Moms after Abby walked off the set. Not only was Cheryl thrown into the situation, she had to undo all the emotional damage Abby had inflicted on the poor girls. In March, Cheryl announced she was going to take a hiatus from social media to deal with some ?personal things.? Unfortunately, what she was dealing with was the death of her father, Stephen Burke. Cheryl and her father, who lived in Thailand, had only reconnected within the past decade. Cheryl, who was two years-old when he left, felt abandoned by Stephen. Very soon after he split from Cheryls mom, Stephen began a relationship and had another daughter, Ina. Cheryl knew Ina existed but did not meet her until after Stephen passed:

With my father's passing came a lot of darkness but there was also a lot of light I found my sister who I had never known. We recently met for the first time and it was such a surreal experience to walk into a room to meet and walk out feeling like we had known each other forever. In her I see the same drive and passion that our dad had and there?s clearly a major family resemblance. It may have taken 30 years to find each other, but I am so excited to have another sister for life ?

Ever since Mischa Barton had to sashay away on this season Dancing with the Stars, the show has been lacking in drama, so let’s give the floor to former DWTS dancer Cheryl Burke to dish on the drama of the past. Cheryl, who left the show in 2014, spilled the “T” to the podcast Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss.

Cheryl, 31, whose other DWTS partners included Rob Kardashian, Drew Carey, Wayne Newton, Gilles Marini, Jack Osbourne, and Antonio Sabto Jr., told the podcast that Ziering made her want to “slit my wrists.” Steve Sanders? Over Rob Kardashian? Really? You would think a dancer on a reality competition would be a little kinder to the C- and D-list celebrities she worked with, but not Cheryl. The full podcast won’t be released until tomorrow, but TMZ gave us a sneak peek:

She wanted to be eliminated: I was like crying to the executives, ‘Is there any way to please eliminate us?’ They were like, ‘We can’t. We can’t do that.’ And then I swear everytime I asked, we just kept going. We would last until the end.

Her seemingly biggest beef about Ian: The fact that his name is not Ian and it’s ‘Eye-yan’ makes me want to throw up! Think of spending time with that for like 8-10 hours a day, seven days a week, for three months.

[From TMZ/Allegedly podcast]

I guess I get it. Cheryl is in the process of putting together her own dancing stage show, Love on the Floor, starting up in late June at Japan’s Tokyu Theatre Orb. Why dredge up stories from 2007 when, in fact, she and Ian came in fourth on DWTS? Not too shabby, right? Actually, if you listen to the interview, she doesn’t sound all that bothered by the experience. I’m kind of thinking she felt like she had to deliver some kind of dish on the show and this, sadly, was the best she had. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no big Ian Ziering fan, but I kind of feel like he doesn’t deserve the slam. Especially after almost 10 years. We’ll have to see if she has some good stories to back it up though.

Cheryl Burke on her weight loss: It's not plastic surgery, kids called me monkey face
Cheryl Burke, 30, is one of the two professional dancers on Dancing with The Stars who have stayed the longest. She and Tony Dovolani have been on the show since 2005. Burke has always been extremely fit and what I consider skinny, however she’s received flack throughout the years for her shape. Back in 2008, DWTS pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Louis van Amstel publicly shaded Burke and fellow dancer Lacey Schwimmer for not being reed thin. It must have hurt, although Burke has always maintained that she keeps a positive body image and does not try to be tiny.

Burke Instagrammed this photo (below) from her vacation a couple of weeks ago. She looks a little like Lisa Rinna, but that could be due to the angle. In response, mean Instagram users started bashing her for her weight loss and what looks like plastic surgery. Burke told multiple outlets that she just adopted a healthier lifestyle to lose weight and that she hasn’t had any work done. It sounds like the negative comments have hurt her feelings, and that she’s trying to deal with it.

During an appearance on Access Hollywood this week, Burke said she lost 25 pounds by simply eating healthier and exercising more.

“I’ve seriously had no plastic surgery,” she told Access Hollywood co-host Kit Hoover on Wednesday, July 16. “I used to get bullied as a kid for having big ears and big lips and they would call me monkey face. So I’ve always had the big lips.”

Burke defended herself, in part, because of the backlash she suffered after posting a bikini selfie via Instagram while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on July 7.

“People just went crazy,” the 30-year-old explained. “I was surprised that no one really stuck up for me either. It really just messes with your head honestly.” (Some of the hate-filled comments received were “you look anorexic” and “what the hell happened to you?”)

The negative feedback didn’t leave Burke in tears, but it has left an affect on her. “I do constantly look in the mirror and say, ‘Oh, I have a fat roll here. Or am I skinny enough or am I fit enough?’” she said. “Now I just have to let it go and as long as I feel good and I’m happy that’s all that matters.”

[From US Weekly]

To People, Burke admitted that the comments have hurt her. She said “Have I lost weight? Absolutely. But not in an unhealthy way. I want everyone to know that. I love my fans. But words are hurtful, especially coming from people you think always have your back.” She added that she’s using portion control to lose weight and is eating right, and that she isn’t “on Atkins or anything.”

I asked a friend who is an avid DWTS watcher to comment on Burke’s weight loss and she said “How can she lose weight? She was always so skinny to begin with. Actually she’s the perfect shape.” My friend also thought that Burke was in her late 30s, but that’s due to the fact that she’s been on DWTS since the beginning. (Plus Burke wears a lot of makeup, I suspect she would look younger with lighter makeup.)

Burke also looked great to me “before,” I didn’t think she had to lose weight at all. I wouldn’t criticize her for it, especially in her industry. This is a woman who works as a professional dancer and who is constantly being critiqued for her shape. I admire that she’s open about how she feels vulnerable when people say horrible things, but I also think she should just be more careful about what she shares online. This reminds me of Wednesday’s story on Rose McGowan. Rose lashed out at people needlessly, but the issue is that these type of comments can be made in the first place. Can’t Burke use WhoSay or something? They seem to have more controls in place so that people don’t get needlessly bashed. Or, you know, she could limit her use of social media.

As far as plastic surgery, Burke’s face just looks thinner to me. She’s had those lips for years, but of course it’s possible they’re not all natural.

I post a lot of bikini pictures of models and wannabe celebs on this site, but the good thing about professional dancers like Cheryl Burke here is that you always know what you’re going to get. These chicks have to be in perfect shape, I’m pretty sure it’s part of their contract, right under pretending […]
