It was not easy for little Burke to pursue her dream of becoming a model. But the impetus was always there, even when she was at Sahuaro High School and Palo Verde High School in Tucson. She got her first chance to show off her sweet body in the 1990s when she was modeling lingerie for the Frederick’s of Hollywood catalog. While continuing her career as a model, she gained TV fame by signing a contract with Wild On! on the E-Net from 1999 to 2002, by which time she had already completed her studies in broadcast journalism.
Her breakthrough came when she appeared in the TV series Rock Star, which opened the door to fame for her. She used this to take her next big career step, winning the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars and co-hosting Dancing with the Stars from 2010 to 2013. Since then she has had endless hosting jobs for the Star. Some of her hosting jobs include the pre-show for the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards and the Miss America beauty pageant.
She has also taken time out from her modeling and hosting schedule to shoot a few movies with credits in the action-horror movie The Wraith – a role without credits. She was also cast as Jill in the horror movie Dead Scared (2004). The star is willing to spend the next few years hosting more shows and displaying her body, while she is likely still blossoming out her acting career.
Brooke Burke’s Husband, Divorce and Kids
Brooke was married more than once. Her first marriage was to Garth Fisher, a famous plastic surgeon. But their love faded in 2005 and since divorce is not as tragic as staying in an unhealthy or unhappy marriage, the couple went separate ways after their two daughters Neriah and Sierra. The following year Brooke Burke began dating French actor David Charvet.
David Charvet wanted something more than just going out, so he proposed to the TV presenter. In 2011, the duo exchanged their marriage vows at St. Bart’s. They have two children, a son named Shaya Braven, born in 2007, and a daughter named Heaven Rain, born in 2008. Their marriage seemed to be very successful and people thought that they had found a true friendship in each other that would not die so easily.
However, it was a shock for many when the duo announced that they would separate after 7 years of marriage because of irreconcilable differences. Their divorce file suggests that they share joint physical and legal custody of their children. It also demands that the court reserve the right to determine spousal support in the future.

Height and Measurement
Brooke Burke is a dedicated workout person and over the years she has managed to be in top form. Her swimsuit body, middle section, and legs remain incredibly toned, even though she had four children and has experienced weight fluctuations since. She weighs only 51kg or 112 pounds. Her body measurements (breasts, waist, and hips) are 36-23-34 and her dress is 4(US) or 36(EU) or 8(UK). She wears bra size 34B and US shoe size 8.5 or 39(EU).
You may wonder how she could hold such a shaped figure. She does this through workouts that include Pilates sessions in a week, and also takes a Booty Burn course three times a week. Booty Burn may sound like it only works the buttocks, but no, it’s a whole-body workout that targets different parts of the body.
Beyond exercise, the 5 ft 7 inches tall star maintains her tone by following a Mediterranean diet which consists of chicken, fish, vegetables, olive oil, and lean grilled beef. She also does portion control, eating a small quantity of the food daily. Also, Brooke Burke never misses breakfast and makes her own dinner.
