Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet covers the spring issue of New You and opens up about plastic surgery and life after 40, her divorce from Dr. Garth Fisher, and her happy family life with husband David Charvet and kids Neriah, 13, Sierra, 11, Rain, 7, and Shaya, 5.
On her divorce: “I regret having a marriage that didn’t work, because divorce is ‘forever’ for children. I regret that my two oldest daughters have to grow up knowing that sometimes a family falls apart. That’s my heartbreaking life lesson. But I’m happy that they can see love now.”
On plastic surgery: “If a woman has done a bit of work, you should never know. Women who do too much scare me. I’m glad it scares me. I was married to a plastic surgeon, so I’ve seen it all.”
On life after 40: “[My] 40s started out a little bit rough because there have been some life issues, but physically I feel better today than I did in my 30s. I know myself better. I have boundaries, a louder voice and I know myself as a woman. I know my body better, how to dress my body and I have a better sense of style. I am also more experienced. I feel more accomplished because I have a family and I’m very lucky to be in a loving marriage with a man that I’m in love with and he’s in love with me and that’s like amazing, so in that I find beauty.”
