Over the years there has been a lot of drama concerning pros and their celebrity partners not getting along, and although Burgess hasn’t had any terrible experiences, she does have her favorites. In an interview with Glamour Burgess shared that she and season 18 partner Charlie White stayed good friends, but called season 20 partner Noah Galloway “like family.” She also became very close to season 21 partner Nick Carter and his wife Lauren, stating, “Nick and I are just the same. It’s that bond that’s so genuine and so real, and it’s not just for TV.” She did admit she had more trouble connecting with Keyshawn Johnson and Travis Smiley.
