Brooke Burke Open Ups How She Was Nearly Tempted to Have an ‘Affair’ with Derek Hough During Winning DWTS Season

Dancing with the stars has brought some of the iconic people on the stage. Fans have admired these celebrities and their amazing performance. However, the inline fans sometimes become so obsessed with the couple and their life that it is common for them to ship these people together.

But what happens when they already have some feelings? Well, that’s when the real things start. In 2008, when the initial season of Dancing with the Stars was airing, Brooke Burke and Derek Hough had enormous success.

The couple, who initially had a lot of fights, neatly became a couple and this sparks new fantasies in the minds of their fans.

Brooke, who is now 52, has recently been welcomed in PODCAST where she revealed certain spicy news that broke the internet. According to her, she and Hough weren’t really on good terms. The producers set therapy arranged by producers.

During the podcast, she revealed that while all these things were running, she was  “crushing on Derek.”

Brooke talked about Cheryl by saying, “Had I not been married [to actor David Charvet]… I would have hoped we would have had a love affair,”

“I would have had an affair with him. But listen, let me tell you why: You are intertwined with someone’s body when you’re not a dancer. There is no way that I have ever been so connected — besides with a lover or a husband — than I was with Derek. And it’s every single day.”

Brooke continued: “So for three months, you are in someone’s arms. Why do you think people fall in love? You smell them, you feel them, you’re breathing with them. It can be more intimate than making love in a bedroom — you’re making love on a dance floor, you feel more connected.”

“If you have energy, you’re doing this dance and you’re in the rhythm, and then there’s trust, then you’re sharing fear, you’re doing something you’ve never done. How many times do you go through an experience with someone where they’re all you’ve got?” she asked.

Brooke also talks by saying, “had one experience with one person like that [outside the ballroom].

When asked about the experience, she called it “Life-changing,” “I wasn’t given a reason. I think that’s the frustrating part,” Brooke told Cheryl about her sudden departure. “It would have been one thing if I sucked at the job, or I had an issue or I had a falling out, or I was a diva, or complicated to work with, or the audience just straight up didn’t like me. There wasn’t a reason.”

She continued: “What I would have liked would have been to have a very adult, respectful conversation that would have gone something like ‘we’re not going to renew your contract and we’re making some changes. We’re looking at some new people, and we just want to give you a heads-up, and if you’d like to support that publicly, great?’”

“Should we make an announcement together? Great,” Burke dreamed about how the conversation could’ve gone.

She further explained the situation by saying, “I honestly would have accepted that, respected it, and been all on board,” she claimed.

Despite all the drama, Burke was grateful and her heart was filled with good things with the experience. “One of the greatest feelings was winning — but it was also completing an experience and giving it my all, everything that I had. And that I was proud of. Even if I didn’t win, I was proud of … devoting three months, seven days a week. So I left [that competition] going, ‘I can do anything!’”

She added: “I’m so lucky that I was able to go the distance, and it wasn’t about winning. I’m lucky that I was able to face challenges and show up on the other side of them and learn, learn how to communicate, lew to show up for a partner, how to show up for myself, learn how to have faith in my own body and movement, learn how to quiet down the noise around me and be in a moment that scared the s— out of me.”
