Pro Dancer Kym Herjavec Speaks On The Bondi Junction Attack

Before she was Kym Herjavec, the professional dancer was simply Kym Johnson, a professional dancer from Australia. She met her husband Robert Herjavec when he was her celebrity dance partner on Dancing With The Stars Season 20. They came in sixth place out of 12 couples, but walked away with so much more — a life-long friendship and eventual romance.
