Burke Blasts Back at Bloggers

Constant blogging about Cheryl Burke's weight has caused the dancing champ to break down -- she told "Good Morning America" today that criticism over a five-pound weight gain brought her to tears. "I know I'm not fat, but when people keep telling you that you have to think about it," she told Diane Sawyer.

The "Dancing with the Stars" beauty said she put on weight over the summer -- and bloggers soon sniped that she looked pregnant. "The worst thing I'd have to say is that people thought I was a few months pregnant when I started the show," she said. "It was a huge shock for me."

Beautiful Cheryl, 24, isn't giving in to tabloid trash talk. "I just want everyone to know you are beautiful in your own skin," she said. "You don't have to be anorexic."
