Rumor: Cheryl Burke Dating NHL Star (What About Being The Bachelorette?)

Last time we heard from Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke, she was saying she'd be a wallflower at the 2012 NHL Awards. She claimed she had trouble meeting men. She wanted to be the next Bachelorette.

Well, notsofast 'cause Us Weekly says Cheryl was recently spotted "getting cozy" with NHL player Joffrey Lupul. They were both at the NHL Awards and reportedly "hit it off immediately." They did some Twitter flirting, Us reports, and on June 22 it looks like he tweeted a response to her:

“Why thank-you. You looked amazing as well. When's my first dance lesson? RT @CherylBurke Good choice ;)”

According to Us’s story, Cheryl and Joffrey arranged to meet for dinner in L.A. where they were spotted holding hands across the table. He is said to have kissed her when she stood up to use the restroom. Sounds like a cute date, minus whoever was spying on them the whole time.

The name Joffrey gives us bad vibes, thanks to Game of Thrones, but if this is a real romance, and Cheryl’s happy, then we’re happy. She recently complained about being “so single,” but maybe that’s not the case anymore. If so, we need new candidates for the next Bachelorette!
