Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke: Dating with the Stars?

by at . Comments

Are Dancing with the Stars tandem Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke dating? Even engaged? That's the rumor after the NFL star put a ring on it.

No, seriously, he did. The significance behind the sparkler he gave Cheryl, which she was rocking on Monday night's episode, is unclear, however.

Chad, who has also been seen kissing Cheryl on the lips in recent days, downplayed the bling, saying, "It's a thank you. It's a gift. A friendly gift."

"In my world, we tend to give those that we care about gifts. Why is it such a 'wow'?" The blushing pro dancer did admitted, "I fainted a little. A little concussion. [He] gave it to me in the trailer on one knee. And it's on my ring finger."

Following Buzz Aldrin's elimination last night, Cheryl and Chad are through to the next round after three straight respectable dancers,jelling more each week.

Does the twinkle in her eye hint at an engagement? Or at least love? Burke demured "You never know." The footballer said, for now, the dance floor "will be our aisle."

Like Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, also the subject of dating speculation themselves, these two have good chemistry, and enjoy feeding the rumors.

While not confirming or denying any romance, the Cincinnati Bengals player, who changed his name from Chad Johnson in honor of his uniform number, 85, said:

"She's certainly made me smile for seven weeks now."

What a charmer. Propose already, will you 85?

I think they're adorable. I hope they are dating. :] I think y'all are just jealous. Don't be rude just because the amazing dancer got the guy with the hot abs. Somebody has to and it won't be any of you bitter people.

I hope this was a publicity stunt for them to continue dancing and ultimately WIN the mirror ball. If NOT, Im disgusted! I am so sick of Cheryl Burke DRUNK ASS all upon each and everyone of her partners. EACH season she in particular is romantically linked to her partner. Dancing With the Stars is paying her well enough for him NOT to have to compensate her for doing HER FUCK'N JOB. He did MENTION it was a GIFT and therefore CAN AND SHOULD be a TAX write-off. This biatch has a pattern of being all upon BLACK DICK and if her next season partner is BLACK she will be on his as well. WATCH OUT CHAD!

I heard that Maks was dating Louis who is in love with Derek who is married to Tony who is seeing Damien on the side who lives with Mark while Cheryl is secretly married to Edytda who was seen vacationing with .......

Why don't they just call it "Pimping for the Stars"? It seems that these dancers are dating their partner every season. Buzz Aldrin is rumored to be dating his partner as well.

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
