The 31-year-old admitted to ET’s Nischelle Turner that the gossip about her dating life does get frustrating.
“This journey isn't about that, this show isn't about my dating life, it's about Bonner right here and what we're doing out on that floor every day, so I want to have everyone be so proud and impressed and inspired by what he did today,” she told ET of her partner Bonner Bolton.
Bolton, in fact, was one of her rumored romances, as is model and actor Pierson Fode. So why all the interest in her personal life?
“I have no idea,” Burgess told ET. “Possibly because I'm the only single girl on the cast so that just means I'm the topic of conversation. Everyone is ready to marry me off to somebody. It's like, ‘Ok, can we all just breathe for a second?’”
The pair performed a tango to Wreck-It Ralph for Disney week that left the judges less than impressed after last week’s emotional performance. Despite mixed reviews, Bolton felt confident about his performance.
“I feel like I really was strong with this dance and the steps but there are some things I can work on still always. I'm not a pro dancer,” he told ET.
And while the pair appreciate the feedback from the judges, Burgess does get protective of her partner.
“I do love that Bonner made a point tonight to say he's doing the best that he can with his abilities and with his injuries because it’s easy to forget that when you look at him and I think even the judges need to be reminded of that to be honest,” she said.
