INSIDE EDITION caught up with Cheryl Burke as she got some last minute rehersal time before Monday's big premiere of Dancing with the Stars.
Burke was fresh from promoting her book in which she revealed she was molested by a family friend when she was 5 years old.
"People's responses have been amazing. I feel people are behind me 100 percent and they got to know a different side of me, not just what they see on Dancing with the Stars," she said.
Burke is paired with pro wrestler Chris Jericho. During his wrestling career he once lived in Japan, so the disaster there is weighing heavily on his mind.
"It was very sobering to see some of the cities I worked in are completely gone," said Jericho.
Across the hall we found dancer Lacey Schwimmer putting her partner, Los Angeles radio personality Mike Catherwood, through his paces. Many people may not have heard of him, but this amateur bodybuilder is shaping up to be the heartthrob of season 12.
