Sharna Burgess Speaks Up For Nick Carter After Rape Allegations Against Him Surface

Sharna Burgess Speaks Up For Nick Carter After Rape Allegations Against Him Surface

Sharna Burgess has opened up about her opinion of Nick Carter just after he was accused of rape by former Dream singer Melissa Schuman.

The DWTS pro came to Nick‘s defense after the allegations and wants all her fans to know that “this is not victim shaming, y’all know me and I would never. Just because I support Nick, doesn’t mean I don’t support female empowerment or #metoo. They are both movements that I am a part of, here for and proud of.”

During season 21 of Dancing With The Stars, when Sharna and Nick were partners on the show, she says that he was “definitely one of the most respectful guys that I’ve ever danced with on the show. So understanding of the difference between the character and the dance, and then the coach and the dance, all of the different levels of relationships that we have with our partners on the show.”

She continues, “From day one, he was just incredibly sweet and understanding of what it was that we had to do. He was very accepting of me bossing him around every day. …But what I loved about Nick, too, was that he always took ownership of the things that he’d been through — the darkness in his history, the mistakes that he’s made — he wanted to be very open about them
and how he felt about them.”

“Not once did he ever speak to anybody badly, demand anything, become a diva, show anything ugly other than just absolute gratitude for being there, for having made it that far, and just a passion for working hard and trying to do better.”

Sharna Burgess Praises Her Female DWTS Co-Stars in Honest New Blog

Sharna Burgess has perfectly captured the power of female friendships in her latest blog.

“Something very special for me about being on tour is that I am lucky enough to perform across the country with a group of wonderfully talented people and among them is some incredibly strong and powerful women,” the Dancing With The Stars pro starts off.

Much like Lindsay Arnold touched on in her past blogs with JJJ, Sharna also found out that once she ditched the judgement about others and about herself, she was able to truly be confident and shines a light on how that only helped her forge amazing friendships with all of the female dancers on DWTS.

“I appreciate the presence of all the hard-working, passionate women I am surrounded by everyday,” Sharna adds. “As different as we appear to be on the outside, at our core we are very much the same. We are infinite. We are women. Strong, gentle, intelligent, understanding and compassionate.”

“My co-stars on DWTS are just a few of the outstanding examples of women in my life that I appreciate, admire and learn from every day. The universe has put these people in my path to travel some part of my journey with. I don’t take that for granted anymore.”

Sharna Burgess Says The DWTS Pros Definitely Miss Julianne Hough On the Judges Panel

Sharna Burgess Says The DWTS Pros Definitely Miss Julianne Hough On the Judges Panel

Dancing With The Stars is down one judge this season on the show, as Julianne Hough took the season off to start filming a brand new movie — and the pros are definitely missing her.

“I miss her,” pro Sharna Burgess admitted to ET after Tuesday night’s show. “I miss Jules’ energy up there, her knowledge on ballroom dance and the way she would critique the information she would give.”

She adds, “I think she was such a wonderful part of our panel, and she is seriously missed by all of us.”

Sharna continued, saying that Julianne was a beam of positivity on the panel for everyone on the show and not having her around, might’ve affected scoring.

“I’d never even thought of that [affecting the scores], actually,” she says. “We’ve just been so tunnel vision on what we’ve got to do. But I think that is a big part of it, even if Jules was to give a six, she always had something [nice] to say about it. So, you are right.”

No word on if Julianne will return for next year’s show or not.

DWTS Pro Sharna Burgess Reveals Why She & Bonner Bolton Never Got Romantic

DWTS Pro Sharna Burgess Reveals Why She & Bonner Bolton Never Got Romantic

At the start of Dancing With The Stars in season 24, there was so much talk about a rumored romance between pro Sharna Burgess and bull rider Bonner Bolton, but it was just that — talk.

So, why didn’t a romance happen? Let Sharna explain:

“Last season, fans were very much hoping that Bonner [Bolton] and I were going to get together,” she shared with US Weekly mag. “We met and had incredible chemistry and neither of us were against it.”

However, there was one big factor in Team DenimNDiamonds never going out: “I was the coach and he was the student.”

Sharna adds, “Our dynamic changed. I don’t know if I’d be able to be romantic on one side and then the boss on the other. It never got to be a romance.”

She isn’t closed off to never having a romance stem from the show. “I’d love a fairytale like Kym and Robert [Herjavec, who were paired together in 2015].”

Dancing With The Stars premieres on Monday, September 18th on ABC.
