When Cheryl Burke was given the opportunity to join Dancing with the Stars beginning season two of the popular show, her major concerns were shyness and cameras.

Since 2006, Ms. Burke has come a long way professionally. She has also been making efforts to overcome tough events in her life like being molested as a child, dealing with abusive relationships, suffering from low self-esteem, as well as struggling with her weight.

Light is shed on those things and more in her new book entitled Dancing Lessons. At 26 years old, the two time Dancing with the Stars champion sees a therapist weekly, even though she says she’s experienced growth and now understands the things that happened to her.

Unfortunately, many people deal with the issue of having been molested as a child. And those individuals come from all walks of life. U.S. Senator Scott Brown, for example, recently revealed on 60 Minutes that he was molested as a child. Ms. Burke says people need to talk about the issue so they can move on. Cheryl has spent the last year without a serious boyfriend in order to figure herself out. She says that’s really helped her.

While on Dancing with the Stars, she has received ongoing media coverage for weight issues. There have also been reports over the years that she was dating some of her not-spoken-for, as well as married celebrity dance partners. Burke states in her book that none of those reports are true. She says being labeled a home wrecker is the worst of the made up stories some of the tabloid and entertainment press have published about her.

In her book, Cheryl Burke courageously discusses some very dark and personal events in her life.  Through it all, she says dancing is the one thing she feels comfortable doing.
