“I’m human. It still affects me,” Cheryl shared in a new episode of her podcast, Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans. “To say that I don’t look at the comments would be a lie. And to say that I don’t focus on [the negative ones], it would also be a lie.”

Although Cheryl Burke struggled with addiction in the past, she’s been sober for several years now. In the episode, she went on to say that discussing the negatives aspects of the show helped her heal.

“I think that with some people, talking about the past means you’re not over things, and that is just not true in my world,” the 39-year-old continued. “Like for me, talking about it is me trying to let go of it, like in real-time, like, you cannot run.”

Regardless of the backlash and Cheryl’s personal bad experiences, she asserts that she still has a lot of love for the show.

“I will always be Dancing With The Stars’ number one fan. That’s never going to go away,” the professional dancer continued. “Regardless of any, whatever you want to call it — disagreements, turmoil, whatever — there always will be love for me, at least from me to Dancing With The Stars.”

The Former Pro Says Leaving Was Worse Than Her Divorce

During Cheryl’s time as a pro dancer on the show, she navigated her divorce from actor Matthew Lawrence. On the Amy & T.J. show, she revealed departing from DWTS was much more difficult than her breakup.

When Amy Robach asked the dancer which was more difficult, Cheryl replied without hesitation, “Dancing With The Stars. I mean hands down. You can’t compare.”
