Holding her head up high. Brooke Burke is “trying to stay positive” after filing for divorce from her husband of 12 years, David Charvet.

“I’m just trying to stay positive and take care of myself and listen to my body and my heart, you know, just kind of going through it,” the 46-year-old model told Us Weekly and other reporters at the Global Gift Foundation’s women’s empowerment luncheon at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in L.A. on Thursday, May 10. “It’s all new. I’d be lying if I said it’s all fabulous and positive. It’s a big change. There are hard days, you know, and really good days. [I’m] just walking through it and spending a lot of time by myself.”

The Wild On! alum also revealed that she and Charvet, 45, are masters at coparenting their two kids, daughter Heaven Rain, 11, and son Shaya Braven, 10.

“We’re really good at that. David is an amazing dad, like, that’s one thing I never have to worry about and that’s probably every family’s No. 1 priority and fear when they go through separation or divorce,” she explained. “He’s awesome, so no issues there. We take the high road for our kids … I think that’s what a responsible parent does at the end of the day. It’s a little bit about me and a little bit about him and a whole lot about the kids, so we share that common belief. Thank God for that.”

Added the Brooke Burke Body app creator: “[David and I] have a long history and a deep love and I’m confident to say we’ll always have a great relationship.”

The fitness guru also noted that she’s embracing her newfound single status and not looking for a new relationship right now. “Will I ever date again?” she joked. “I don’t know if I’ll ever go on a date. I’ve just squashed every possibility.”
