Cheryl Burke is being coy about romance rumors between her and Nim's Island star Gerard Butler -- though she does say the two are friends and neighbors.

"You know, honestly he's good friends with my dance partner Cristian de la Fuente and his wife -- and we met through them," Burke told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Tuesday. "He actually lives in my apartment building, and we've been friends for a few months."

When pressed about a rumored kiss -- during a party at Eva Longoria Parker's restaurant Beso in Los Angeles -- Burke told Seacrest: "You know, everyone says hello and says goodbye and kisses each other. Don't you, Ryan?"

But Burke was more chatty when it came to another man in her life -- her dance partner, whom she called, "the most improved guy I've ever been with. "And on Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars," Burke and de la Fuente earned a 27 from the judges. Said Burke: "He works so hard and he's not afraid to do anything." -- Brian Orloff
