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!”
