Get to work, bitch. (probably NSFW.)

Thanks, Brooke.

Hey, remember her?

smokin' hot mother of 4, Brooke Burke

Used to be on the E! channel all the time, swimsuit model, winner of a season of “Dancing With The Stars”?  Once upon a time, she also did a couple of workout video’s with Gunnar Peterson, a celebrity fitness trainer who was a big proponent of using the stability ball to get more from your workouts.  (Guess who else is in them: Anita Super Hot Abs from the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.)

I have these videos (Core Secrets) and I actually like them a lot.  No real cardio to speak of, but some good strength training with weights and working on the ball really does make a palpable difference.  Plus, he’s got some good moves that work muscles differently than you may be used to—like “T squats,” where you use to ball to sit further back and get a deep differently angled squat like you would if you were skiing, or “curtsy lunges” where you take one leg in back of the other and lunge in a curtsy position reaching that ball out in front of you.  Anyway, I recommend them if you’re into working out with videos.

But perhaps what I like best about doing the “Bun Battle” with Gunnar and Brooke—and I realize this makes Kiki’s hubs right about how mean I am—is that during the 20 straight minutes of them kicking my ass with hundreds of lunges, they also give me the gift of being able to stare at Brooke Burke’s cellulite.

BB has a slammin’ body, don’t get me wrong.  And while I could be thinking, “Holy cripes, if this smokin’ hot mama has cellulite, then there is NO hope for me,” what I choose to tell myself instead is, “See?  Even the perfect ones aren’t perfect.”

So, there’s that.

  1. Well I am going to have to get that video. You have every video!

    This is proof of the evil stubbornness of cellulite: even someone once married to a famous plastic surgeon has to live with it.

    As an aside, I have a friend who ran into her in a parking lot in Santa Monica. Brooke was sweet as pie and even got a calendar out of her truck to autograph for my friend’s brother.

  2. I’d be nice, too, if I looked like that.
