Fans of the Dancing with the Stars host will enjoy this foray into Burke's glamorous, chaotic life. The former model and reality TV host has in recent years focused on motherhood. The dancer and mother of four hopes readers will "find your private dancer deep within and let her guide you through the music that is yours alone." The author really does, well, bare it all: she writes honestly of her difficulties as a DWTS contestant, from clashes with her partner to poor performance. Burke 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. Clich├ęs abound, but Burke's tone is earnest in its helpfulness, and admirers will delight in the book's insider dish. (Mar.)
