Brooke Burke On Her Lack Of Sleep

Brooke Burke continues to impress with her stunning beauty and amazing talent on Dancing With The Stars, but the rigorous training and performing combined with being a mother-of-four is taking its toll. Below is Brooke’s latest blog entry:


I’m at rehearsal right now, waiting to shoot the results show. The energy at our studio is quite different on Tuesdays as all of us await our future on the show. I am committed to keeping my vibe light and fun although I think the judges were hard on everyone last night. I am relieved that the Paso Doble is behind me now because my whole body hurts from the intense training this week. At this point, anyone could be leaving the show, and I really hope it’s not Derek and me. Please keep voting so we can keep dancing.

I’m walking to the stage now. Wish me luck!

BTW, I am getting desperate for sleep. I’m thinking about a sleep nurse to train Shaya and Rain to sleep through the night. I have never done that with any of my babies, and I’m not sure it feels right. Here is a site that I am looking into for sleep specialists –

Any thoughts about sleepless nights? I sure wish they would go away…..


Hang in there Brooke!

Brooke also shared that her daughters are as impressed with her amazing dancing as the judges on Dancing With The Stars and everyone else!

“They love it! They love watching me all glammed out in the costumes,” Brooke, 37, told Us magazine after Monday’s show. “When I come home, my 2-year-old says, ‘Dance, dance!'”

Brooke has two children (daughter Heaven, 20-months-old, and son Shaya, 6-months-old) with fiance David Charvet and two daughters (Neriah, 8, and Sierra, 6) from a previous relationship.

Her youngest daughter Heaven loves her professional partner Derek Hough.

“It’s so cute,” Brooke told Us magazine. “I Tivo it – she doesn’t really get it, but she knows that Mommy is dancing with Derek. It’s so sweet.”

Added Brooke, “It’s really inspiring the kids to see dedication and hard work, and I think it is going to be a really great experience for them.”

    Brooke honey, listen to me I am almost old enough to be your mother. YOU NEED YOUR SLEEP! No one is going to find fault with you for not getting up in the middle of the night with your babies. Hire that sleep nurse, today. Yes, you can do it all, but please take care of yourself–we want to see more of your dancing 🙂 Best to you and your beautiful family.

    Brooke looks fabulous and she’s dancing well, too. However, that is indeed Shannon Elizabeth in the photo. Way to check out your images, WM. LOL
