"I feel like I'm getting supertoned," the model, 32, said during her "Loveline With Amber Rose on Play.it" podcast Thursday, September 22. "I feel like I've lost probably 10 pounds, maybe 8 pounds already. It's serious!"
"People don't understand how much work goes into it," she told her podcast cohost, Dr. Chris Donaghue. "You're with your partner four to five hours a day. Then you get home, you're on the phone with them, like, what you need to work on, what you need to do. Then you go to the ballroom and it's all the other celebrities and other dancers — it really is like a family."
Still, Rose wouldn't be surprised if hookups happened behind the scenes. "When I used to watch the show, I'm like, 'Damn! They're really affectionate!'" she recalled on Thursday. "They're probably all f–king each other and s–t."
One thing is certain: Rose isn't cozying up to Chmerkovskiy. The DWTS vet is expecting his first child with his fiancée, fellow pro Peta Murgatroyd. The New Zealand native, who won last year with partner Nyle DiMarco, is sitting out this round because of her pregnancy.
"It does become awkward when she's at the rehearsal and she's like, 'Listen, vagina and balls, they need to touch or you're not doing it right,'" Rose said on Thursday. "I'm like, 'Uh, this is your fiancé! This is weird! But it's all for the greater good of dancing, I guess. That's how it is."
