Cheryl Burke Pens Essay on Sobriety, Healing Through 'DWTS' With Cody RigsbyThis past summer, I celebrated three years of sobriety. My decision to commit to being sober was a long time coming. I was functioning, had just gotten engaged, and then my father passed away. He struggled to stay sober throughout my entire life, and his death served as a wake-up call to me.

Burgess, 36, added, “It was never a discussion. They offered it to [Brian] on the terms we’d be partners. We always were going to be partnered together.”

I think that’s the biggest challenge. It doesn’t mean it’s bad, either. We haven’t had a bad moment for us because our communication is so great in our relationship, so anything that arises, we discuss it. But it is new, so it’s just that staying open to seeing what Bri is showing me and what we need as a couple in life, and what we need as a partnership on the dance floor and trying to be present to that.”
