Cheryl Burke Confesses She Was The Breadwinner In Her Marriage

“I tried to not obviously, I didn’t buy my ex-husband, but, like, I definitely would say I was the breadwinner,” Cheryl admitted as a guest on the Amy & T.J. Podcast. “Like, I supported us, and I don’t think it’s black and white.”

“It’s like — it made me feel good, but then it didn’t necessarily make the relationship good,” the professional dancer described the sensation of earning more than her ex.

“I had a false sense of security,” show hostess Amy Robach added. “But it’s also emasculating, and so it creates an awful dynamic.”

Cheryl went on to say that she isn’t sure she wants a partner who takes care of her in that way. She’s very independent and wants a partner who understands that.

“I want someone who wants to evolve, like, that wants to consistently and wants to, like, work on himself, be able to take accountability when needed,” the 39-year-old continued. “Because, like, you can blame all day long, but at the end of the day, you’re stuck with you for the rest of your freaking life. You better like yourself.”

As for the perfect partner, Cheryl concluded that she needs, “Someone who’s supportive, someone who is not — confident is the wrong word — worth. Confidence is just, I believe, ego, like, comes from, like, the foundation of maybe a little ego.”

In the interview, Cheryl admitted some of the exec team members probably don’t appreciate her podcast or the sensitive information she shares. In all likelihood, she believes podcasting is why the execs didn’t invite her back for the Len Goodman tribute.
