The Naked Mom by Brooke Burke ~ Advice and Parenthood Reflections

“Dancing with the Stars” champ and successful businesswoman Brooke Burke has written a new book to spotlight what she believes is her most important job: mother.  “The Naked Mom: A Modern Mom’s Fearless Revelations, Savvy Advice, and Soulful Reflections” chronicles Brooke’s journey to Hollywood,  motherhood, romance and also the various challenges that she faced in her life. The mom of 4 has two children, Sierra and Neriah, with her ex-husband Dr. Garth Fisher and two children, Heaven and Shaya, with her boyfriend David Charvet.

In an interview on Good Morning America, Burke told Robin Roberts, “I almost named the book ‘Dancing through Chaos’ because it’s really about maneuvering through life and finding my own rhythm and trying to gracefully manage the chaos. I think most mothers are going to relate to it.”

From her blog to this book, Brooke is known as one of the most honest celebrity moms in the media.

In the book she writes candidly about her difficulties as a DWTS contestant, from clashes with her partner to poor performance. Burke also shares tips on makeup, diet, and fashion; writes about her business ventures (she’s founder of retailer Baboosh Baby and co-CEO of the community Web site ModernMom); and offers plenty of ideas for a hotter sex life.

“‘The Naked Mom’ really is about motherhood revealed and parts of me that no one has seen before. Both I’m going to do it truthfully, and I’m going to tell all, or not at all. I’m one of those mothers where I’m not ashamed to share my challenges and my difficult moments and also the things that I did right and the things that I’m learning…raising a blended family, not easy,” said Burke.

“The Naked Mom is motherhood, revealed. It’s not about being right or wrong. It’s about being authentic. When you’re raising four children, running a household, tending a relationship, building a multimillion-dollar business, and pursuing a television career, there’s no room for pretense or posturing. I always knew I would be a mother, but I never imagined I would have this many children this fast, or that our lives would be full of changes and new challenges every day. But I was raised to take chances, to be strong, and to find my own way. When I think about myself as a mother, I suppose that’s just what I’ve done. I don’t believe in A-to-Z guides that spell out the “right” way to raise your children, or be a wife, or realize your personal goals. There’s always going to be someone out there wanting to tell you exactly how to do it—that opinionated friend who thinks her way is the only way, another mother who’s doing something better than you are.”
