"Being a teacher and helping women transform their lives has been one of the most rewarding efforts of my career."

Continuing her quest to educate women about health and the value of exercise, this year Brooke designed and produced her newest passion project BrookeBurkeBody, a fitness lifestyle app that allows anyone to take a fitness journey with her anytime, anywhere.

Personal Quotes (3)

When I was young, I wanted to do something innocuous, like becoming a drummer in a rock and roll band.
When I finished Wild On!, I decided I wanted to focus exclusively on acting, which is what I did or a few years. Then the Rock Star opportunity presented itself, and it made sense that it was on two nights a week, it was really a prestigious job at the time that pretty much every host in town went in for. So I decided in the middle of pursuing my acting career, it was an opportunity I needed to take on. So I began hosting again and I really enjoy it.
I was sunbathing topless in Ibiza, and my friend wanted to eat at this cafe where everybody does without putting on their tops or bottoms. He assured me, "It's cool. Don't dress up." I went into the cafe and sat down with him when all o a sudden I hear "Brooke!". It was my dentist. I just played it cool, but needless to say, I changed dentists.
