42-Year Old Brooke Burke-Charvet Goes Topless For SHAPE Magazine (PHOTOS)

We swear, Brooke Burke-Charvet must have found the fountain of youth — and fitness! The 42 (soon to be 43)-year-old mom of four somehow looks even better year after year. The latest proof? Her sizzling hot photoshoot for SHAPE magazine's September 2014 issue, where she goes shirtless (but still keeps it classy) for the cover.

In the cover story, Brooke, who had a very public battle with thyroid cancer in 2012 and then a very public firing from Dancing With the Stars this year, talks about her philosophy for overcoming obstacles of all kinds ("embrace the change, because change is how we grow").

Brooke does admit that her DWTS firing blindsided her — something she's been honest about since day one, on purpose. "I deliberately chose to be honest about it, because this is reality," Brooke explains to SHAPE. "The one thing I learned in the ballroom was how to dance through the chaos of life gracefully. The way you exit is as important as the way you walk in the door."

In the story, Brooke also delves into the details of her struggle with cancer. In the end she came out the other side healthy and hot as ever — which you can see for yourself by clicking through this gallery of photos from her SHAPE photoshoot.
