Brooke Burke Charvet is quite a trooper. While watching her fulfilling her role as hostess on Dancing With the Stars, you'd never guess the grief that is there in her heart, but Brooke recently spoke out about the losses her family has suffered this year in a blog post on Modern Mom.
"My life has been anything but beautiful lately," Brooke writes. Her longtime friend and children's nanny passed away recently due to a heart attack. She was very young, and according to Brooke, the death was "the most unexpected and sad goodbye" that she's ever dealt with. Earlier this year, Brooke also lost her best friend, Steven Lake in a tragic accident.
Loss was very much on the star's mind throughout the post, which you can read here. She spoke about seeking professional help and grief counseling so she could correctly discuss the feelings with her children, who are dealing with the devastating loss of a caretaker.
There has been some good news for Brooke in recent days, however. This month she has launched both her Caelum Fitness line and her Sheer Cover Studio makeup line. These two product launches along with her work on Dancing With the Stars has given her something more to focus on, and a way to look forward.
