Brooke Burke Covers 'Redbook' July 2011

Brooke Burke Covers 'Redbook' July 2011

Brooke Burke shows off her toned figure in a bikini and sheer shirt on the cover of Redbook magazine’s July 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old Dancing with the Stars co-host had to share:

On doing it all: “When I was a new mom, I used to think that life was going to be balanced, and I strived for that. But life is crazy! I’ve got two little ones a year apart – my daughter Rain, 4, and my son, Shaya, 3 – and two older daughters – Neriah, 11, and Sierra, 9 – and a million things to do. I gave up on the expectation that everything was going to be picture-perfect. Balance is a joke.”

On fitting in fitness and finding “me time”: “You’ve got to figure out what works for you. If you only have 20 minutes, make it a kicka– 20 minutes. Working out is my stress reliever and my me time. The way I see it, if you don’t have 45 minutes a few days a week for yourself, you are in big trouble.”

On date night with her partner, David Charvet: “It’s Familyville in my life, but David and I make sure to escape once a week. So maybe on a Sunday night, we’ll go out to dinner at a favorite Malibu restaurant. Or at home we get the candles, the music—the whole deal—and we close the bedroom door. We have a rule in our house that you have to knock on closed doors. Someday the kids might be like, ‘I smell the candles, I hear Maxwell playing…’ but thank God they’re not old enough to figure that out yet. I do not want to have to explain that one!”

    I liked this interview, very down to earth. I also like how she admits being a mom is a crazy busy endeavor. Being a mom should require some “me” time as she says. It shouldn’t be all about the kids. But let’s be honest, she also has some good genes!

  • Jackie

    She is the biggest superficial idiot. Look up all her boyfriends and husbands. They are all dumb looking pretty boys from Baywatch or are models. I don’t mind the fact that they are pretty boys. George Clooney is a pretty boy but he is a pretty boy with brains. ALL the men she’s been with don’t have it. She has not had a relationship with any man of depth.

    I lost all respect for her when I found out that there is little difference between her and Paris Hilton. Don’t let the brown hair fool you.

    At least the men she’s been with have looks. Imagine if they were some beer gut balding man who was not making millions. Now that is even worse.

  • lolo

    Famous because………?

  • Kimberly

    Aurgh, this chick annoys me on “dancing with the stars”. Her face is so unemotional, she doesn’t care what he contestants have to say, she asks them a question and she cuts them off, “mmm yeah… okay tom back to you.” *flash the smile*

    What ever happened to Lisa Canning…the FIRST HOST on
    Dancing With the Stars??? It was nice seeing a woman of color on a national show for change.

    Why not replace Lisa with Tanika Raye???
