Cheryl Burke on Why She'd Be a Good 'Bachelorette'


Cheryl Burke has been heating up the dance floor as a fan favorite for years on Dancing with the Stars and now explains why she'd be eager to join another popular ABC reality show, The Bachelorette.

Speaking to ET after last night's Dancing with the Stars episode, Burke, 28, confirmed that she's already been in talks with producers of The Bachelorette, but said that "nothing has been set in stone" yet.

"If they offer it to me, why not," she said. "I mean I've been so unlucky with love, and finding my own man. I've just been bad picking on my own. So I'm just thinking, why not have someone else do it for me?" The star -- who is currently paired on DWTS with Emmitt Smith -- added that she's been "married to her job" for too long and now wants to focus more on her personal life.

We also spoke backstage with Kirstie Alley, who revealed what it was like dancing the paso doble with her regular partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, as well as pro dancer Tristan McManus. "I mean, I've never danced with two guys... I've never done anything with two guys." She added: "And if I had, it would have been in my book, but it isn't."
