Brooke Burke Supports Kate Gosselin, 'Mother to Mother'
"Dancing with the Stars" co-host Brooke Burke is hoping contestant Kate Gosselin gets over her jitters and performs well.
"I know she's struggling," Burke told "Extra's" Mario Lopez. "But, mother to mother, I'm kind of wishing she could overcome her fear."
The mother of four also feels for Gosselin and all the recent media scrutiny over the reality TV star's parenting skills. "Eight kids, juggling and multi-tasking -- it's kind of frustrating as a mom when the public gets involved and they start dissecting things. I'm sure she's figuring it all out."
Burke has written a parenting book, "The Naked Mom," in which she discusses the ups and downs of being a working mom. "It's sort of motherhood revealed, and how I raised four kids and have a career."
And what about Burke's April Fool's tweet that she was pregnant with baby No. 5? Burke laughs, "I said, 'Come on, guys. Baby No. 5? Really? Do you think I'd go there?'"
She does offer some sage advice to Lopez, who will soon be a father. "I think you have to find your own way," Burke explains. "And I think you have to be really committed and confident in your decision, and figure out what works for you and your partner and your child."
