Her book ‘Dancing Lessons’ has just come out and so she visited the talk show to share her past. Other than talking about her short “relationship” with the athlete, she opened up about some of her emotional struggles growing up.

As for the Cheryl Burke fling with Chad Ochocinco, rumors about them dating crept up all the time during the competition. The pair even appeared on Ellen then and tried to deny anything was going on.

Well now we know the truth! Even though things are over now, and the star athlete is engaged, we have now heard what happened back then. She admitted:

“I mean, we had a fling. We worked so much together. We had great chemistry. But it was the same pattern I had in the past with my boyfriends in the past. He was just really unavailable to me. I just knew that didn’t work and I’ve moved on and he’s obviously moved on.”

She has had some abusive and dysfunctional relationships in the past and didn’t want to have that happen again. She told the host more about her past and talked about how she dealt with it through dance. Check out more specifics on the book here.

    Cheryl is a loose woman. Each and every season she hangs all over her partners. I was particularly disgusted by her over the top touching, grabbing, hugging and kissing with Giles Marini. It was obvious during the competition that something was going on with Ocho. Didn’t he give her a gorgeous piece of jewelry?? wasn’t it a ring? He expressed his caring for her many times on camera, so it was obvious they were hitting it. Too bad you can’t take anything she says seriously because she just plays “come-on” with every guy out there. She’s a P**** Teaser.
