Shape Cover Star for September 2014:

Brooke Burke-Charvet is on the cover and the 43 year-old mom of four is excited to start her new venture Caelum athletic wear (she teaches “Booty Burn” classes in her hometown of Malibu.) She looks totally amazing by any measure but especially after all of her recent heath and career woes.

First, Brooke was rather rudely dumped by the producers of Dancing with the Stars competition show that she had been a part of for several years (“going in a new direction” is how they explained it to her over the phone while she was carpooling her kids around–sheesh!)

Then the sh*t got real…

In short, Brooke had Hashimoto’s disease for over ten years and took medicine to help her manage her hypothyroidism. Over time she discovered a lump which turned out to be thyroid cancer and she had a thyroidectomy. (Yikes!!)

Brooke is currently feeling better than ever and shows off a few of her favorite “Booty Burn” moves inside this issue of Shape:
