'Dancing with the Stars' Pro Cheryl Burke Celebrates 4 Years of Sobriety
By Zach Seemayer
A good milestone to commemorate! Cheryl Burke is making her way on her sobriety journey.
The Dancing With the Stars pro took to TikTok on Sunday to share that she's been sober for four years -- and tough years at that, which included a divorce, a COVID-19 battle and other major challenges.
Burke shared a stylized and artistically edited video of herself, set to Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy," in which she announced the commendable accomplishment.
"Realizing I just celebrated four years of my sobriety," Burke wrote over the post, which she tagged with, " #soberlife #onedayatatime #soberbirthday #sobriety #sobrietyrocks #selflove #selfcare #choosemeinstead."
Burke, 38, recently spoke with Allison Kugel on a new installment of her Allison Interviews podcast on Tuesday and reflected on her vision for the future of her career and her personal life.
"Where I'm at right now is I'm not overthinking it right this second. Because, if I do another season of Dancing with the Stars, I just need to do it, when the time comes" Burke said. "Whether this will be my last season or not, I don't know."
Burke revealed that she has spoken to her therapist, and realized that it is because she hasn’t been active with her 12-step program and hasn’t completed the fourth step that “I seem to be stuck on for like the longest time now," adding that she is going to "slowly get back into it."
"It's been interesting for me to actually feel the feelings that are happening," Burke told ET. "It's almost been a whole new experience, in a good way. It's almost like I have a new love and passion for Dancing With the Stars, because seeing everything for how it is, and it's really nice."
