Brooke Burke Isn't Looking to Date Anytime Soon After Recent Divorce (Exclusive)

ET spoke with the TV host about her recent divorce, Mother's Day plans and female empowerment.

Brooke Burke might be newly single, but she's not ready to start dating anytime soon.

The 46-year-old actress and TV host filed for divorce from her husband, David Charvet, last month, after six years of marriage. The two remain on friendly terms and she's embracing this new chapter in her life.

"I'm doing good and it's a lot of change and I'm rolling through it," Burke told ET's Cameron Mathison at the Global Gift Foundation USA Women's Empowerment luncheon at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in Los Angeles on Thursday.

"I've got great friends and women in my life and I'm surrounded by supportive family and love. It's just a really different time, but it's about being happy and it's about embracing that change. And David and I have a great relationship, so it's as good as it can possibly be," she expressed.

The Dancing With the Stars season seven champion, however, isn't going to rush into another relationship.

"Oh, gosh! I can't even imagine that's like pow," adding that she's not dating and doesn't "even know when it will happen."

"Will it ever happen?" she added. "Honestly, it's a really good time to be by myself and an important time because some people rush right into that and this is a really healthy decision. So it's different. It's different when you do it for the right reasons, you know what I mean."

For now, the mother of four is focusing on her Mother's Day plans, telling ET that her kids like bringing her breakfast in bed and coffee, but this year is extra special. Burke is mother to 10-year-old son Shaya and 11-year-old daughter Heaven from her marriage with Charvet, and two daughters, Sierra, 16, and Neriah,18, from her first marriage to Garth Fisher.

"My mom's in town, and my sister and my niece just surprised me," she shared. "And I've got all my daughters at home, and of course my son. Poor guy, he's surrounded in a household full of women. But we're just going to stay home and lay low this year and enjoy each other. It's nice to have the whole family. Three generations. It's nice, it's special."

Meanwhile, Burke is all about supporting female empowerment and is a big fan of the Women's Empowerment luncheon.

"I feel like it's the year [for empowerment and] just celebrating each other, raising our average, supporting one another and lifting each other up," Burke stressed. "And it's events like this where women come together and we grow the network. It's a good time. It's important to find our voice and be brave right now and be loud."
