  • Quotes

    • Brooke: (on deciding to get into acting) When I finished Wild On!, I decided I wanted to focus exclusively on acting, which is what I did for a few years. And then the Rock Star opportunity presented itself, and it made sense: It was on CBS two nights a week, it was a really 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, that it was an opportunity I needed to take on. So I began hosting again and I really enjoy it.

    • Brooke: (on her trip to Ibiza) I was sunbathing topless in Ibiza, and my friend wanted to eat at this cafe where everybody goes without putting on their tops or bottoms. He assured me, 'No, its cool. Dont dress up.' I went into the cafe and sat down with him when all of a sudden I hear, 'Brooke!' It was my dentist. I just played it cool, but needless to say, I changed dentists.

    • Brooke: Forget all the bars and schmoozing and everybody checking out everybody else. My ideal date would be to park in a dark place, check out the stars, and have a great conversation. When all else fails, you can just make out. If I really wanted to get down and dirty with someone, it wouldn't be at some chic five-star hotel—it would be in the rough with a roaring fire burning outside a tent.

    • Brooke: I'm horrified of lobsters. And shrimp and lobsters are the cockroaches of the ocean.

    • Brooke: I like feet. I definitely have a fetish. I love to see a man's bare foot, but its got to be taken care of. If they're not well manicured, you've got to wonder what the rest of him is like. I don't want to get in bed with somebody and feel his gnarly feet.

    • Brooke: When I was young, I wanted to do something innocuous, like become a drummer in a rock and roll band.

    I know most of you are going to detest me for speaking my mind in this review, and I'm sorry. Truly I am. Anywho, Brooke Burke...many of you love her. I, on the other hand, detest her with a passion that could destroy an entire species. Everyone says she's so pretty and hot, but I think she looks like a dragon. Just look at her nose! I always think she's going to breathe fire through it at any moment! My mom said that's why she won "Dancing with the Stars." Her nostril size allowed her to intake more oxygen than the average person and improved her dancing XD She was a great dancer, I will admit that. That wasn't what irritates me - it's the fact that she knew she was good and always knew she would win. She was a prissy little know-it-all that always gave off the impression of being nice and kind when she was most likely cursing every other opponent. I could say more unkind things, but I'd better not. You guys get the point.moreless
