Cheryl Burke: “DWTS” Star Dating Hockey PlayerBy: Amanda Crum - July 20, 2012
Cheryl Burke has long been a favorite on the hit show “Dancing With The Stars”; not only has she led her partners to a win on two different seasons of the show, she’s also fairly adorable. Now, news that she’s got a new man is making the rounds on the interwebs, because he’s a star in his own right.
Burke is reportedly dating NHL hockey player Joffrey Lupul, whom she met after hosting the 2012 NHL awards in Las Vegas. The pair was spotted earlier this week at a horse racing event, from which Burke tweeted that she was having fun. Though nothing is official, fans are hoping she’s found a nice guy since she’s admittedly not had much luck in the dating scene.
“My dating record hasn’t been great the past couple of years,” she said. “If I have a chance to go on [‘The Bachelorette’] I will. It would be fun to have a pool of guys around you and getting to know someone,” she continued. “I think if I had people setting me up with different guys I think it would be easier for me to meet someone to date.”
