DWTS Star Struggles With “Fat”

Two-Time Dancing With The Stars Champion, Cheryl Burke spoke out to People Magazine about her struggle with weight and being called, “fat” in the tabloids.

Here’s a portion of what she had to say:

“One night I was supposed to go out with my friends but I couldn’t do it. Every time someone looked at me I was like, ‘That person thinks I’m fat…You don’t have to be anorexic to be beautiful”

Ultimately, the estimated 5-10lb. weight gain did come off when she returned to DWTS after their hiatus.  Burke admits to trying to starve herself but later adopting a more sensible approach to eating.

Attacking someone with a body as beautiful as Cheryl’s in the press puts the self-esteem of women everywhere at risk.
