Cheryl Burke Talks Sexual Abuse

Posted Wednesday January 26, 2011 3:22 PM GMT

She’s one of “Dancing with the Stars’” hottest ladies, but things weren’t always so easy for Cheryl Burke.

The 26-year-old babe confessed that she has a history of being sexually abused when she was younger.

In her new book “Dancing Lessons,” Cheryl shares some painful memories as well as her role in putting her abuser behind bars.

“I’m telling my story. They’re not secrets. There’s no shame.. I felt guilty for wanting his love and affection. [Testifying against him was] the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I saw his face and lawyers were asking me these questions and I was like, 'What am I doing? Did he even do anything wrong?'"
