TV host Brooke Burke breaks her silence about her divorce from husband of six years David Charvet
Television host Brooke Burke has finally opened up about her split from David Charvet. Brooke, who filed for the divorce last Friday, spoke about how she feels parting ways with the former husband after six years of marriage.
The 'Dancing With the Stars' season 7 winner, got candid about her feelings on the Modern Mom blog.
"I have struggled with trying to find worthy words to speak to this life change my family is going through but I do want to share my personal thoughts. You may have heard that David and I are divorcing. We have tried to keep our separation private for some time out of respect for our children and family. Although I believe this is a positive change, I am deeply saddened because I loved being married," said the actress, who has two children from the marriage - Shaya, 10, and Heaven, 11.
The 46-year-old also revealed how she struggled to "differentiate between giving up and letting go, and even longer to recognize when it was time to do so. We are still a family full of love, simply redefining our dynamics. I believe this is a necessary decision for my entire family unit."
"There was nothing sensational that caused this divorce and nothing scandalous will surface. Big life decisions are hardest when made for the right reasons. It is sometimes painful to be strong and embrace change. I believe in letting go of ideas and dreams when the time is right. I am in that space right now as a woman and a mother, listening to my heart. I am approaching this with gratitude and unconditional love."
Brooke and Charvet's divorce hasn't gotten messy yet as she has proposed that they share joint legal custody of their kids. The two tied the knot back in 2011 and until last year, all seemed to be going well.
In an interview with Hype magazine, she had reportedly said that the two love spending time together at home. "When I'm at home, being a chef is my passion. I love long hours in the kitchen mixing up family meals. And my husband and I love to entertain… It's always the more the merrier at our house."
