Cheryl Burke: I'm gonna try and be a classy 'Bachelorette'


Cheryl Burke is determined to be the classiest "Bachelorette" yet if producers of the dating show pick her for a TV love match.

The "Dancing With the Stars" regular has emerged as a fan favorite to be the next single lady to front "The Bachelorette" and she has revealed she has already met with TV bosses behind the show.

Burke is still waiting to hear whether or not she'll be handing out roses next year, but there's one thing she is certain of -- if she gets the gig, she won't be smooching up a storm. The dancer says, "I don't think I would kiss all the guys. I'm gonna try and be a classy Bachelorette."

Burke might find that tough -- the show has a habit of encouraging passion as lusty guys fight for their gal. The reality TV star is also committed to finding a lasting relationship on the show after putting her work first for the past two-and-a-half years. She tells Los Angeles radio DJ Valentine, "I've been married to my work. .. It will be nice to be able to focus on myself.

"My last real relationship lasted about two years and it's been about two-and-a-half years since I've had a relationship ... (but) I really do fall in love ... I would definitely go on there ('The Bachelorette') for the right reasons; I'm not going on there to be on television."
