46-year-old TV host and model Brooke Burke openly talked about her divorce from his husband of six years David Charvet, sharing that the two are staying friends and seeing this change as a positive opportunity.


Burke’s revelations about her relationship to her ex-husband, with whom she shares a daughter and a son, are from an interview she gave to ET Online while attending the Global Gift Foundation USA Women’s Empowerment luncheon.

After announcing their separation in January 2018, Burke finally filed for divorce in early April, citing irreconcilable differences, according to People. But as she has made clear, they are not severing their ties, just reshaping them.

‘We are still a family full of love, simply redefining our dynamics. I believe this is a necessary decision for my entire family unit,’ wrote Burke on her blog in Modern Mom when her divorce became publicly known.


The couple tried to keep their separation private as long as possible for consideration with their children and to try and deal with the issue without external pressures, as Burke stated in the blog, but later opted to share her thoughts.


Although she didn’t hide the fact that she felt very sad by ending her marriage, she wanted to prove that one doesn’t have to be afraid of change, and sometimes trying another approach to something that is not working is the best decision.

‘It's just a really different time, but it's about being happy and it's about embracing that change. And David and I have a great relationship, so it's as good as it can possibly be,’ Burke told ET Online.

About the possibility for her to become romantically involved with someone else, she doesn’t think it is something that will happen in the near future, as she needs to take some time alone with her thoughts.

‘Honestly, it's a really good time to be by myself and an important time because some people rush right into that and this is a really healthy decision,’ she explained.
