Cheryl Burke is going through a difficult divorce at the moment. But even so, she’s finding ways to keep her head up. Most recently, she’s made numerous podcast appearances to open up about past pain and trauma.

This summer, she opened up about her body image issues that stemmed from her time as a professional dancer. Even though Cheryl is in amazing shape, the world of dance has made her hypercritical of her own body. Recently, the dancer admitted those issues may play a role in her decision to step away from the show.

It doesn’t seem as if Cheryl Burke has made a firm decision to leave DWTS for good at the moment. But based on her words, it doesn’t seem that decision is far off.

Cheryl Burke wants to explore other opportunities

Cheryl Burke has probably already made a decision about Dancing With The Stars Season 31. The season premiere is on September 19 and the pro dancers need time to meet their dance partners and prepare routines. But she hasn’t officially said whether or not she will be back.

“If I do another season of Dancing With The Stars, I just need to do it,” the pro dancer said during her appearance on the Allison Interviews podcast. “When the time comes, whether this will be my last season or not, I don’t know. Or if I don’t, I can then consume my brain with those thoughts.”

She added that she would love to become a mother, but understands that it will change her body. And that isn’t really something she wants to deal with while competing on national television.

“I would prefer not to have to put myself in a dance costume and just let myself gain weight,” the 38-year-old admitted. “I do believe I will start to love my body more when I don’t have to shove my ass into a dance costume. So, right now it is on hold.”

But at the end of the day, Cheryl doesn’t believe that her work on Dancing With The Stars is her life’s purpose. She has plenty of other projects to keep her busy, but she isn’t sure how much longer she will be with DWTS.

The dancer starts looking for a new partner

The divorce from actor Matthew Lawrence hasn’t been easy, but Cheryl is ready to move on. She’s taking things slow for the time being but admits she does want to find love and start dating again. If she wants to explore motherhood, she can always adopt or look into sperm donation. But more than likely, Cheryl probably wants a partner to share parenthood with.

Fans hope that Cheryl Burke will make another appearance on DWTS, but wish her all the best in her personal endeavors too. Check back for more stories on Cheryl Burke and the rest of the DWTS castmates. The newest season premieres on Disney+ on September 19.
