Brooke Burke-Charvet fretted over fan response
'Dancing' co-host was scared how fans would react to cancer diagnosis
"Dancing With the Stars" co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet has confessed she was scared of how people would react once word was out she was diagnosed thyroid cancer last week. The TV personality shared the shocking news with her fans via her blog last Thursday, and the word quickly spread that Burke-Charvet was diagnosed with the possibly fatal disease.
She took to her blog once again on Tuesday to share her reaction to the outpouring of support, even though the initial news was a little daunting to hear. She writes, "I want to tell you that when I saw my cancer news everywhere, it scared me - so I can only imagine the impact that it had on everyone else ... Truth is, I was pretty scared about what the response would be. But I want you all to know that I feel great, my condition is manageable, and I am planning on a speedy recovery ... The stress and anxiety that I’ve been feeling is now outweighed by love and support, and it is overwhelming in the most beautiful way. It means the world to me and I feel so lucky in life and love to have so many positive people around me. I wish there were enough time in my days to sit face to face with all the loving people in my life who have reached out and connected with me in the past week."
And while she took the "DWTS" stage with ease and comfort on Monday, the 41-year-old is staying adamant that everything will be OK. She adds, "I want to assure everyone that my condition is manageable and I am taking all the proper steps ... It’s a journey that I never thought I would have to take but with a full heart and strong mind, I will get through it."
"Dancing With the Stars" airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
Best wishes to Brooke!
Gilles should have been this season's winner for sure.
And now that he is sadly gone, Kelly and Val have incredible chemistry,
and should go on to be the winners!
