The Dancing With the Stars pro took to Instagram on Monday to share a message with fans, asking them to support her and Green during this season of the reality competition series.
"For those that say we kiss too much, here’s a full 🍑 grab instead 😂," Sharna captioned a photo of herself placing her hands on Green's lower-lower-lower back during rehearsals.
The dancer addressed critics who claim the pair are either too lovey-dovey during the show, and those who have speculated that their romance is just a front to try and win over voters.
"For real though, we kissed once in the first show that’s it. This isn’t a showmance, this is real life love and it’s a part of our journey. Every step. Every struggle. Every success," Burgess wrote. "And anyone that thinks it’s an advantage I can assure you, it’s not. ITS SUPER HARD!"
According to Burgess, the pressures of the competition have actually made things more difficult, because there's more at stake than just a TV show.
"We both wanted to push harder this week because we really want those scores to keep us in the competition, but in the process we had a few moments of feeling hyper sensitive toward each other and struggled to find a happy positive work flow," she explained. "Coaching your boyfriend is hard, and having your girlfriend be the one to tell you all the s**t you’re doing wrong is also hard."
"I am still trying to find balance between how much I love him and how much I love to create and coach for perfection on this show," she added. "What I do know is I’m grateful for every second I get on that dance floor with him. What a dream to share this."
"When we first started dating she always said that one of her dreams with me was, 'Hey, we'll dance together one day.' And then [I realized], if I suck at this, she's gonna have to write off that dream and be like, 'Oh, we'll get into skydiving I guess," Green said. "I didn't want her to have to write that dream off because I was terrible at it."
