Brooke Burke-Charvet is usually seen smiling as one of the hosts of Dancing with the Stars, but on Thursday the TV personality had some serious news to report.
"I need to have thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy, which means I'm going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck," Burke-Charvet, 41, revealed on The ModernMom YouTube channel. "I don't get to just walk around and pretend like nothing happened or not follow up or not share it, because it's going to be pretty much dead center. I don't want anybody to read about it and get the wrong idea, or think that I'm sick, because I'm not."
The TV host's health news came after a regularly scheduled physical.
