Brooke Burke: "My Perfectly Imperfect Life"


Ask Brooke Burke how she manages to look so cool and collected while somehow balancing her extremely hectic life, and she laughs out loud. "I'm glad I'm fooling everyone, because my life is anything but easy, and it's certainly not balanced! The truth is, if anyone saw my home life, I'm pretty sure it would look like other families' around the world. There's a lot of juggling to be done." But that's just fine with her, because Brooke—the mother of four and the host of TV's Dancing With the Stars—has learned that striving for perfection is a waste of her time. "I used to be so disappointed when things didn't go perfectly," she says. "Now I know, all you have to do is try your best." See what else you and Brooke have in common.

Brooke Burke shares her candid advice for a healthy lifestyle in her new book, The Naked Mom. And for SHAPE, she reveals even more about her life, and shares her go-to fast workout, her favorite beauty products, her playlist and more.
