Video and Pics: Cheryl Burke and Possible Fiance Chad Ochocinco on "Dancing"
The rumors are running crazy after Cheryl Burke showed off a $10,000 piece of bling on Dancing With the Stars last night.
The ring was a gift from her dancing partner Chad Ochocinco. But does it mean more?
She told Entertainment Tonight that Chad got down on one knee to give it to her, but...
"It's a thank you. It's a gift. A friendly gift. In my world, we tend to give those that we care about gifts. Why is it such a 'wow'?" Ocho told ET.
The blushing pro dancer did admit, "I fainted a little. A little concussion. [He] gave it to me in the trailer on one knee. And it's on my ring finger."
So, are they are or aren't they?
"You never know," Burke told ET.
One thing we do know is that Burke is just plain smokin' hot. We have the proof to back that up.
She's All About Dancing Out of the Ballroom Too
Cheryl is apparently a big fan of Vegas.
She's been known to bring a group of friends into a dance club and tell the staff to just keep the Grey Goose coming.
This shot highlights her Filipino roots, but she's also of Irish and Russian decent.
Oh, to Be a Sequin
Cheryl is the first two-time champion of Dancing With the Stars.
She won with Drew Lachey in season two and Emmitt Smith in season three.
The Straight Hair Works Too
Burke has been saddled with her share of duds on the show as well.
She was the third pair voted out on the season five edition with Wayne Newton.
Thankfully, she rebounded well enough to fit into this number.
"Are You on 'Matlock'?"
Burke was recently spotted at a Miami beach resort, chatting up the septuagenarians.
Until it became too much of a reminder of dancing with Wayne Newton.
No More of That, Please
ABC obviously thought better of that early exit.
Since then, she's been paired with actor Christian de la Fuente (they finished third in season six), NFL vet Maurice Greene (fifth place in season seven), and actor Gilles Marini (they were runners-up in season eight).
The Short End of the Straw Again
Would you pair THIS with Tom DeLay?
Most of the country didn't even know who the former U.S. House of Representatives majority leader was until he danced with Burke.
She ran him too much. He withdrew from the competition with stress fractures in both feet.
Do That Rumba, Cherocho!
All right, you've endured this slideshow. Well played, Mauer.
Here's your reward: a little rumba from Cheryl and Ocho from April 12.
They scored 44 and 60 on double scoring night, so they're looking pretty safe.
Sorry in advance for the cheesy singing. It's why I usually watch DWTS with miminal volume after the intros.
