Dancing With The Stars Cast: Cheryl Burke Opens Up
Cheryl Burke told fans that she feels a very special connection with her DWTS partner, AJ McLean. “That’s why I really wanted AJ, because I’m like, for him to be 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.”
Dancing With The Stars cast member AJ told fans, “I’m on a very strict diet, grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, no sodas of any kind and completely sober for almost nine months. I’m doing this for two reasons: one, to get in the best shape of my life, and to be happy and healthy, physically, mentally, and emotionally, and there’s something else coming up.”
Cheryl Burke also talked about her father’s battle with alcohol and that was what made her decision not to join a program like Alcoholics Anonymous. “My father passed away-and then my dad was an alcoholic-so either I was gonna crash and burn and check myself into rehab or I was gonna quit cold turkey. That’s just my personality. It’s either black or white.”
When she got engaged to Matt Lawrence in 2018, she said that he had no idea about how bad her addiction was. “It was like Matt 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.” They did get married in 2019.
