cherylburke

Via Extra TV:

“Dancing with the Stars” pro Cheryl Burke joined “Extra’s” Mario Lopez at Universal Studios Hollywood as guest co-host, where she spoke candidly about headlines saying she’s lost too much weight and has had plastic surgery.

Burke recently celebrated her 30th birthday in Mexico and posted pics from her vacation, which sparked the backlash. She told Mario, “For me, like any woman, my weight fluctuates. Either I’m too fat for some people, and now I’m too skinny, but honestly I feel great. I’m healthy, exercising and eating right. I mean there’s no secret.”

Cheryl slammed rumors she has had surgery and lip injections. “I’ve never done anything to my face. I’ve always had naturally big lips… I actually got bullied for my lips when I was a little girl. This is just natural. I have to say my mom has great genes, and I’m Asian. I have good skin.”

As for next season of “DWTS,” Burke revealed there may be some more changes. “We might go back to two nights, that’s the rumor on the streets, maybe for a few weeks, or maybe a fourth judge. I know Len Goodman is traveling back and forth, so he may miss a few weeks.”

Valerie Harper to Cancer: Screw You! I’m Dancing With The Stars!

They gave her three months left on this cruel world all the way back in March and Valerie Harper told those doctors to shut up and call her agent!

Harper is now the latest celebrity that will be hoofin’ it up in the next season of Dancing With The Stars.

Valerie, 74, who is famous for portraying the side kick Rhoda on ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show, was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, months ago. Leptomeningeal carcinomatosis attacks the membrane surrounding the brain. Doctors gave her until June to live, but she’s feeling better than ever before and so decided to prove it by doing the show. She will be paired with Tristan McManus.

Now let’s all watch the show and ensure that she fares better than the other stars competing this season: Snooki, Elizabeth Berkley (‘Showgirls‘), Amber Riley (‘Glee‘), and Christina Milian.

Drew Lachey Says Brother Nick Lachey Doesn’t Need Baby Advice

He’s back on the road with his brother Nick Lachey as part of 98 Degrees, but don’t expect Drew Lachey to be sharing any fatherly wisdom. He told Parade.com, “I don’t give any advice. That’s rule number one. You don’t tell anyone how to raise their kids.”

Besides, he’s not worried about his brother. “He’s going to love that baby so much, everything is going to be fine,” Drew adds. “I don’t have to give him any advice. He knows how to hold it, love it, and hug it. That’s basically all you have to do. Everything else will work itself out.”

Drew also discussed returning for another season of Dancing with the Stars, what he thinks about his fellow All-Stars, the secret weapon he has up his sleeve, and why athletes seem to win a lion’s share of the trophies. Check out highlights below!

ON HIS COMPETITION:

“Well, there are six champions and a lot of runner-ups. I’m glad I’m able to come back and prove to myself and everybody else that yes, the dancing and the talent have improved every season but season two can still hang! It’s going to be a lot of fun and I look forward to it. I think it will be looser at first until week one. Until they go, ‘oh snap! They brought it. I better step up my game!’ Once that happens, the gloves will come off and people will be competitive. Until that happens it’ll be pretty jovial and fun. We’ll see.”

ON WHAT HE’S GOING TO DO DIFFERENTLY:

“For the most part I left it out there. There are a couple things I would have done differently like different costumes, different choreography. But I don’t do anything halfway and this season isn’t any different. I’ve seen the seasons go by and I know what to expect a little bit more. In season 2, we were stil figuring out what the show was. They had a little costume room and now they like have a sweat shop. It takes up a whole floor. The show has expanded, the cast has expanded. Everything’s gotten bigger and better and shinier with more rhinestones. There’s going to be a learning curve but I feel confident with the knowledge from doing the show.”

ON HAVING NEW MOVES:

“There are certain things I can do physically that we didn’t quite take advantage of [on season two]. Not necessarily tricks but I’m more athletic than we took advantage of. Obviously the choreography is stepped up a lot. There are more dances. At that time, my wife was about to have a baby so I was all over the place. So it will be good to just be able to be there and focus on what I have to do.”

ON PERFORMERS VS. ATHLETES:

“There’s nothing [of a rivalry] that is blatantly out there. A lot of it comes down to [athletes] being able to take coaching, they’re able to listen, they’re 100% focused on the goal. While performers, by trade, we’re a little more creative and out there. So athletes have that advantage. There is some serious competition out there.”

DTWS TALK: Brooke Burke Thinks Male Celebrities Have Advantage

Season 14 of Dancing With the Stars premieres tonight on ABC and host Brooke Burke gives the dish on this upcoming season to Prevention magazine. And quite frankly she believes that the female celebrities have a more challenging time on the DWTS dance floor.

VIA PREVENTION:

There are so many great women on Dancing with the Stars this season, including Gladys Knight, Sherri Shepherd, Melissa Gilbert, and Martina Navratilova. And they’re in their 40s and older. Do you think they have an advantage because of their age?

BROOKE BURKE (BB): In general, I think women are more comfortable in their skin as they get to know themselves better and become more confident. They have more life experience, which certainly comes into play in this competition.

But will it help them win?

BB: I actually think the male celebrities have an advantage because the female pros are so beautiful and talented that they make up for what the men do and don’t do, to be perfectly honest.

What other qualities matter?

BB: Relatability. Likeability. Dealing with the pressure. The attitude. The way you address the audience. The way you treat your partner. A lot of things that go far beyond talent.

What do you love most about Dancing With the Stars?

BB: I love seeing the underdog learn how to dance. I love watching people go from scoring 7s to pulling their first 10s. It’s an amazing experience when you’ve underestimated yourself but you feel free enough to give yourself a chance to learn something new and conquer it. It’s really rewarding. I went through that experience myself.

We cannot wait to see the season premiere tonight! TEAM GAVIN!

The group is said to have enjoyed French cuisine and drank Voli cocktails. And now that she is no longer on the show I hear that the plan is for her and Jay Cutler to work on their relationship.
