Brooke Burke waited five years before marrying her hubby David Charvet, but she’s wasting no time taking his last name.
“Tomorrow on Dancing with the Stars will be the first time I go by my new name [on TV],” the ABC show’s host, 39, told PEOPLE at Sunday’s Emmy Awards. “I’m happy about being Brooke Charvet.”
Although the former Ms. Burke is excited about the change, not all people agree with her decision.
