Brooke Burke, 39, seems to have it all. A handsome fiancÃ© sheÂ’s been withÂ—off-and-onÂ—for 18 years, four Â“blended familyÂ” kids (all hers), a gig as co-host of "DWTS," and a shiny ball trophy from a previous Â“Dancing With the StarsÂ” season win. To top it all off, she has a book coming out next week with a tastefully nude picture of herself on the jacket.
And what is Â“The Naked Mom" about?
ItÂ’s about, reports PopEater, how hard it is to hold all that success together.
ItÂ’s about hooking up, holding on, and why balance is a myth. It offers a celebÂ’s perspective on life change. As Barnes & Noble.com says, Â“Always acknowledging the chaos that is present in any womanÂ’s life, Burke offers readers a more calculated approach to life and motherhood: dance through it.Â”
This seems to work for her.
Brooke Burke on blended families
Â“People think my life is balanced and so perfectÂ…but itÂ’s hard. ItÂ’s really hard.Â” BrookeÂ’s older two children, Neriah Shae and Sierra SkyÂ’s father is her ex-husband Garth Fisher. The younger two ages 3 and 2 are fiancÃ© David CharvetÂ’s children: Heaven Rain and Shaya Braven.
Just keeping up with those creative names could keep a mom busy.
On "DWTS" and Challenges
Â“I learned so much as a woman, challenging myself to do things I never thought I could do, pushing my body and pushing myself mentally and emotionally. Also understanding compassionately what my partner was going through as well.Â”
Since Brooke Burke admits she didnÂ’t like "DWTS" partner Derek Hough very much, this last was part of the challenge.
Burke offers an entertaining glimpse into the celeb life. Enjoy.
