When it comes to her honesty, Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke gets a 10.
Fans mostly know the longtime ballroom dancer as one of the pros on ABC’s hit reality competition show. But, the star sparked headlines for a personal revelation she shared during a new interview on the LadyGang podcast: She’s been sober for the past two years.
“That’s why I really wanted AJ,” Burke said, “because I’m like, for him to be maybe partnered with someone who is just, like, still fresh in the scene or likes to go out, I was a little worried just as a friend in a way…But, then I’m glad we’re partnered up together.”
As for her own path to sobriety, Burke clarified she had not entered Alcoholics Anonymous. “It was just a decision that I made for myself,” she said. “And it was when Matt [Lawrence] and I got engaged and it was during that engagement party that we were just like—or that I was like, he didn’t even know—I was just like, I was done.”
