Dancing With the Stars professional dancer Cheryl Burke recently updated her fans on her ongoing divorce proceedings with ex Matthew Lawrence, and while she said she’s had some “terrible news,” she’s also proud of herself , because it makes progress and sets limits .
Burke has recently become interested in a man and she’s proud that she has set boundaries
On the latest episode of their Burke in the Game podcast, Burke welcomed her friend and KTLA reporter Sam Rubin to the podcast for a brief stint before coming to the week’s main guest. Rubin wanted to check on his girlfriend and he asked how she was doing amid all the divorce drama.
“I’m making progress. I actually noticed it this morning, when I woke up this morning I found a sense of peace in being alone… I know I’m taking these steps to change the pattern I tend to be attracted to when it is about men,” Burke said.
She gave an example of a man who had recently flirted with her at a photoshoot, but she was able to tell he was “a red rag.”
“He never asked me out, I don’t think I put off that vibe, but I know he could have if I had been a little more open and maybe less judgmental [asked me out]’ Burke said, adding, ‘But I know he’s a red rag. I just know it in my heart now. That’s progress, Sam. That’s progress. … borders. I didn’t have any limits before, that’s progress!”
Burke said she didn’t turn down the spirits because of the “horrible news” of her divorce, which “riddled her whole day.”
Burke admitted that the reason she didn’t give the guy the spirit to encourage him to ask her out was the “terrible news” she received regarding their divorce.
“I would have [gone out with him] if he would have asked, but he never did. But that could be because of my body language. Mind you, I also had terrible news on the same day when it came to my divorce, but of course I can’t share any details. But that really messed up the rest of my day,” Burke said.
She added: “He was hanging out in the parking lot and I thought maybe he really wanted to [to talk]but it wasn’t me [ready]. I was so upset with the email I received that I didn’t join.”
This is the second time Burke has mentioned the recent development in their divorce that has really upset her.
On the Episode of the July 25 podcastShe revealed that Lawrence has asked for some “absurd” things as part of their divorce settlement and she’s not handling them very well.
“I think I can say for the first time that I’m not doing too well…some new news has been developing about this divorce and of course without saying too much about it because as you guys know I have a non-disclosure agreement im pre nup — [the new development] really ruined my day and my last three days I guess,” Cheryl said.
She added: “I think it takes a long time for two different lawyers to exchange thoughts and the thoughts at this point and the questions are really absurd.”
But on the plus side, she’s proud of herself for making good choices when it comes to her sobriety journey.
On the August 8 episode, she told Rubin that she recently went out with friends and made the conscious decision to drop them off at a club and then go home so she wouldn’t be tempted to drink.
“I was going out with some friends and I realized I wanted to have a drink again after about 10:30pm, I was like oh I’m turning into a pumpkin, or I should be because I’ll have vodka in my hand would keep fizzy. I’ve come to realize that when I’m out with friends, as soon as they start looking tipsy or when they get a little obnoxious (in a good way) I have FOMO, which is the fear of missing out, and I also want to join the club. So after dinner I dropped her off at the nearest location and went home and was really proud of myself, so that’s another service to myself,” Burke said, to which Rubin responded that it was no small achievement for her.
Dancing With the Stars returns Monday, September 19 for its 31st season on Disney Plus.
