Brooke Burke reveals she was tempted to have an affair with Derek Hough on DWTS

Brooke Burke, the former host and winner of Dancing with the Stars, has confessed that she was attracted to her dance partner Derek Hough during their time on the show. The pair won the seventh season of the ABC reality competition in 2008, but Burke was married to actor David Charvet at the time.

A ‘magical’ experience

In an episode of Cheryl Burke’s podcast Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans, Brooke Burke opened up about her strong bond with Derek Hough and how they almost crossed the line. She said that she felt a connection with him that was “more intimate than making love in a bedroom” because of the physical closeness and constant interaction.

She recalled how they spent most of their time together while dancing and rehearsing, and how they shared fear, trust, and energy. She said that she felt like he was a young man and she was a woman and a mother, and that they were not on the same page at first. She revealed that they even went to a life coach therapy session to improve their relationship.

She also admitted that she was “tempted” by him all the time, and that if she was not married, she would have hoped for a love affair with him. She said that her former husband encouraged her to get closer to him, but she never acted on her feelings.
