Will Cheryl Burke Be The Next Bachelorette?Posted: November 8, 2012
The rumor mill has been buzzing this morning about Cheryl Burke! Sources are speaking out regarding the Dancing With The Stars pro moving from gracing the dance floor to going on group dates and handing out roses. Will ABC take a chance with Cheryl? Or will they stick with the reported re-casting of Emily Maynard?
A source told Radar Online that “Cheryl is in talks with producers to be the next Bachelorette and they think she’d be a really good choice. She has a huge fan base, she’s great on television and they definitely think people would want to watch her find true love on TV.”
While Emily Maynard is still riding on media attention coattails following the breakup with her fiance Jef Holm, the producers may be looking for a clean slate to start next season.
“Cheryl would be a fun person to have as the Bachelorette, and she was excited when they approached her to be on the show,” the source said.
However, other sources have spoken out to E!, saying “ABC has asked her for years to do the show, she is holding out for a big payday because she knows she would bring a lot to the show. She is taking a season off after this All Stars season to take a break and see about other opportunities.”
It seems that someone MUST be fibbing, because another source disclosed to E! that this is all just rumors. The source said that Cheryl Burke appearing on the Bachelorette is, “Never gonna happen! Never!” The source also said that Cheryl has been begging ABC to star on the show, not ABC seeking after Burke.
Cheryl herself spoke out about doing the Bacherlorette, neither confirming OR denying the rumors. “If they offer it to me, I would love to do it,” she said. “I really want to find someone that I could be with.” However, the star did point out that “It wouldn’t be a career move. It is more about genuinely wanting to find love.” – Megan Wilson
