Brooke Burke-Charvet: 'I'd Like to Cut All My Hair Off'

We’ve been impressed watching celebs such as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jack Osbourne cut a rug week after week on Dancing with the Stars. But co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet may just upstage the competition — if she follows through with potential plans to cut her hair.

“I don’t think I’d shave my head, but I’d like to cut all my hair off,” she told reporters at Saturday’s Anne Hathaway-hosted Pink Party, a charity event for cancer research presented by Elyse Walker. “I’ve done it once before. I’ll probably cut all my hair off at some point.”

But husband David Charvet’s hoping she’ll go even further. “Shave your head,” he told his wife. “Just try it. Do something bold.”

Fashion statements aside, Saturday was more than a night on the town for Burke-Charvet, 42, who underwent thyroid surgery in late 2012 after revealing her cancer scare.

“I think as a woman, we all have to get our mammograms. We all have to be responsible. We have to continue to be responsible patients and learn about our bodies,” she tells PEOPLE. “We have so much opportunity right now for early detection.”

How short should Burke-Charvet go? Think she should give a shaved head a shot?

Research is constantly coming out now against mammograms. Just google it and read about the safer, more effective options!

Patty on

I think she’s a beautiful woman and her hair doesn’t make her beautiful. She’d still look beautiful, bald!

susan schweitzer on

so do it!

Sniper on

OMG I cannot stand this woman. She is such a moron. I stopped watching dwts because I couldn’t deal with her any longer. She is the worst interviewer I have ever seen. So who gives a rats booty if she cuts her dang hair or not. I wish she would go away altogether.


Can’t stand her…

bjsquelph on

I think she’s a beautiful woman, with or without hair so go for it!

Amy on

Who gives a flying f*ck!


She doesn’t need hair….gorgeous!!

Ariel, a mammogram saved my life. I sit here in treatment for Stage 2 breast cancer – I can’t imagine how worse off I would be had we not caught it early.

jasperett on

If she does cut it off I surely hopes she donates it to Locks of Love, hair for wigs for cancer kids. I’ve grown mine out long and cut if off twice over the years to donate it, an easy thing to do and I’m growing it out again for a third time.

Rose on

She has her man in the palm of her hand. She’s had him for a while. I doubt he wants her for her hair. With extensions you don’t have to have short hair for long.

larson810 on

And this is a headline why? If you want to cut your hair cut it.

Keisha on

She could cut it all off, but wear wigs on the show.

fanofboardwalkempire on

Don’t cut your hair off Brooke- it is so very pretty on you.

Teknosbeka on

She has beautiful hair, it would be a shame. I bet she’ll look 10-15 years older with short hair.

Sherron on

I cannot believe anyone would be uninformed enough to say mammograms are not necessary. That is ridiculous! Please don’t believe this woman, what she is saying is bogus…

Tracy on

Wow, such hatred for someone you don’t even know. How juvenile. She sounds like a nice person and I guess that just ticks some people off. I’m glad I don’t know any of you because you’re mean people. You click on an article just to spread hate, shame on you.

BH on

42 is too old for long hair. Cut it off.

SUPeople on

Unless she actually has done it, what is the purpose of this article? (and for the record, I highly doubt she will cut any of her hair, otherwise there goes her deal endorsing Wen products!)

summer on

I’m a stage 2 breast cancer survivor, but no thanks to mammograms. I had a mammogram and an ultra sound and they both came back negative even thought I had an 8 mm lump on my right breast so mammograms are not your best resources your own hands are.. Take it from me..

KJM on

summer, I’m so glad you are a survivor and I will be too one day. I’m so sorry the mammogram did not detect your tumor, but mine did well before I ever felt it. Mammograms are effective at early detection for a majority of patients, although obviously not for everyone. God bless you.

Paula on

So do it then biotch!

Just Me on

I’ve shaved my hair 3 different times when I’ve had friends who were fighting cancer and loosing their hair. It helped them to feel as though they were not alone. We traded hats and scarfs. After the first shaving, I also found that I had a 3 inch scar on my head. Still do not know how it got there. I often wonder what happened and why my parents did not tell me. They are no longer alive to tell me.

Charli on

It’s only hair so I say cut it and if you get tired use extensions.

Jacque on

She will look beautiful no matter the hair!

Nannyto1 on

She could totally rock a shaved head.

cal on

Then for “gosh sakes:
C-U-T your hair!! Geesh!

raa on

Me too!

LoveSi on

She’s been 42 forever……just sayin.

Paula on

And she has always looked a little long in the tooth! She looks around 50ish…

guest on

Brooke is so awesome! her pretty face could pull it off. I loved natalie portman with a shaved head. last year I cut mine short-stacked tight in back and angled on my jaw line-it was edgy. plus when i grew it out I wore bandanas and hats and barretts-things i wouldnt normally have done and had cuter style

Mason on

Can’t stand the way she positions herself for the camera on DWTS as if the show was all about her. This article further supports this brainless wonder’s exaggerated self importance. Cut your hair. Don’t cut your hair. Who cares?

Dodi on

Is this seriously a f*cking story?! Brutal…

Debra on

i don’t think she’ll do it or else she would have just gone ahead and did it.

SO? on

WHY IS THIS A STORY? Who cares if you want to cut your hair? Who is she, anyway?

isabelle on

I’ve had long hair for the past 20 years or so and on july 3rd of this year, my daughter and I both cut our hair SHORT to give to a special charity here in Quebec who makes wigs FOR FREE for kids ONLY. Best feeling EVER!!!! My 10 year old is growing hers back to give again but I’ve gotten mine cut twice since then! Feels so liberating!!!!! Go ahead Brooke, try it but don’t use Locks of Love because they’ll throw your hair away since it has been colorated and treated. (Read the fine print before you donate.) Thank’s!

isabelle on

Oups!!! Colored!!!! I wanted to write colored!!! LOL!

Sniper on

jasperett… you said that if she cuts her hair she should donate it to LOL. OMG if she did that’s all we would hear about for months, how extra special she thinks she is because she dontated it. I cannot stomach her… I think she is ugly (inside and out) and needs to just go away.

Gan on

She won’t cut her hair! This is all for attention. If you really wanted to cut off all of your hair you would have just done it instead of talking about it. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!
