Even though they denied rumors of being more than just friends, Cheryl Burke tells us exclusively she misses Chad! So we’re still wondering, Cheryl and Chad, what really went on when your dancing shoes were off?

BFFs, the heated romance between dance partners Cheryl Burke and Chad Ochocinco was SO obvious on Dancing with the Stars last season. So when we caught up with Cheryl on June 25 at The Body Shop’s “Roll Your Way Into A Sweat Free Summer With Revolutionary New NeoDry” event in NYC, we couldn’t help but ask how she’s doing without Chad by her side.

“Yes, absolutely [it’s been hard],” Cheryl told us exclusively. “You spend seven days a week with that person for four months and then all of a sudden it’s over, so you have a little bit of that depression for a couple weeks but you get over it.”

Cheryl has danced with many men on DWTS in past seasons — including hotties Gilles Marini and Drew Lachey – but everyone definitely noticed a different chemistry when Cheryl & Chad hit the dance floor.

And good news! There’s still hope for the two, as Cheryl tells us they “definitely keep in touch.”

“I just talked to him the other day, he’s doing really well,” Cheryl said.

Chad, do us all a favor and tell Cheryl how madly in love you are with her — you’ve come so close to saying it already!
