This is a weird story...
Cheryl Burke News Archive
As we already knew, the sock mogul had, until recently, stayed off the grid after gaining over 100 pounds in one year. However, his former Dancing with the Stars partner doesn't really understand why he opted for a life of seclusion.
During an interview on Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss, the professional dancer candidly criticized the 29-year-old's decision to go into hiding once his figure got fuller.
The 31-year-old bluntly said:
"Look, everyone fluctuates. I'm surprised that he's making it a bigger deal than it is. I think that's it's fine, why does he have to go into hiding or why isn't he coming out? I think it's not a big deal."
Damn. That's kind of cold, don't you think?
While the ABC alum still had nice things to say about Blac Chyna's fiancé, she continued to stress that he still should have ventured out in public:
Ian Ziering is taking the high road with this one!
Following Cheryl Burke's public apology for claiming she wanted to "slit" her wrists after working with Ian, the actor sorta recognized the unfortunate situation on Twitter. Even though Burke's i'm sorry DIDN'T include Ziering, he's clearly choosing not to lash out!
Despite the the poppa's decision to stay silent, he inadvertently commented on the situation when his former Chippendales co-host (yea…), Jaymes Vaughan brought up the scandal via an article from The Talk.
Giving his two cents on the incident, Jaymes responded to the piece by claiming Ian was absolutely wonderful to work with. It's a refreshing thing to hear considering Burke absolutely skewered I.Z.!

Cheryl Burke Publicly Apologizes For Her Insensitive Comments About Wanting To 'Slit Her Wrists' After Working With Ian Ziering
Cheryl Burke is backtracking HARD!
On Sunday, Cheryl issued a public apology for controversial comments she made about working with former Dancing With the Stars partner Ian Ziering. The actor appeared with Cheryl during season four of the franchise yet their partnership never made it to finals.
While things seemingly appeared fine between the two during their DWTS stint, it's now clear Cheryl did NOT have a good time shimmying around with Ian.
This past Saturday, Ms. Burke made a very insensitive remark about Ziering on the Allegedly podcast. In the heat of the moment, the dancer confessed working with I.Z. "made [her] want to slit [her] wrists".
Yikes. That's a loaded and very unfortunate statement to make.
Following a wave of backlash, the beauty took to Twitter to deliver an apology to those who struggle with depression and thoughts of suicide. Check out the full message (below):

Cheryl Burke Opens Up About Being Molested As A Child On TLC's Breaking the Silence — Read Her Shocking Story
This takes a lot of courage!
Cheryl Burke was one of a few celebs — like Jessa and Jill Duggar – who shared their story on TLC's Breaking the Silence, a documentary special looking to educate people on child sexual abuse by sharing survivors stories.
The Dancing With The Stars alum revealed:
"I still go through times when I'm down. I don't feel like I'm that strong woman that people think I am today."
The dancer explained that after her father moved to Thailand when she young, Burke's mother remarried. During this time, her mom asked a neighbor who was in his 60s to look after Burke, who was only in kindergarten.
It was this man that took advantage of Cheryl:
