After recently marrying her beau of 5 years, David Charvet, Brooke Burke made it official as last night was the first time she went by Brooke Charvet instead of Brooke Burke. The Dancing With The Stars host told People Magazine after the Emmy awards this weekend: “Tomorrow on Dancing with the Stars will be the first time I go by my new name on television. I’m happy about being Brooke Charvet.” But, while Brooke is more than happy to take her new name, not everyone is as she also said: “It’s been 50-50 from everybody, but I’m doing it!”
Apparently, Brooke Burke, or Brooke Charvet does not care what anyone thinks, as she Tweeted after the People interview stating that: “some things are more important than Hollywood.” Kudos to Brooke for standing up to what you believe in! The newlywed posted a few months back about the possibility of marriage saying: “we have a home together, 2 kids together, my other 2 that David is helping raise, and we are totally married in our hearts. ‘Do you want forever?’ David asked. ‘Yes, I need forever’ I said. It was just that simple. I would like to have a ‘Husband.’”
