Cheryl Burke’s Got Herself a New Man

Don’t worry about Cheryl Burke, folks; she’s doing okay for herself these days.

People magazine reports that the 24-year-old Dancing With the Stars hoofer—who was forced to publicly defend herself after putting on a little weight last year—is dating 21-year-old Abercrombie & Fitch model Maxwell Zagorski.

Burke’s rep confirmed to the mag yesterday that the couple—who were introduced by fellow DWTS contestant Lance Bass—are officially an item. Though the two have been dating for several months, they’ve kept the relationship somewhat private.

Says a friend close to Burke, “She seems to be pretty happy.”

Well, duh.

Burke will be participating in the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars with model/actor Gilles Marini as her partner.

Assuming new Dancing contestant Steve-O doesn’t somehow burn down the set with his shenanigans first.
