Sharna Burgess Slams Megan Fox Comparison

How do you follow in your partner's ex's footsteps? Sharna says, you don't.

Dancing with the Stars' Sharna Burgess is currently expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, who just so happens to be Megan Fox's ex husband.

The ballroom pro took to Instagram for a Q & A with fans where they were free to ask her anything, leading to one fan asking,

"How do you deal with following in Megan Fox's footsteps?"

What could have led to drama turned into a moment of support instead, with Burgess giving the perfect response. She says,

"Normally, I wouldn't answer these types of questions. But I think many women struggle with comparing themselves to a partners' x. Or to other women in general. That's because society has made it out that we are a bitchy and competitive gender, that we can't be possibly be happy with who we are without wanting what ‘she' (whomever that is to you) has. We are measured by the looks and our weight more than anything else."

She gives her simple but clear answer: "I don't."

Burgess shares that she has too much respect for Fox and for herself to "compete." She admires her own achievements in the same way she'd admire Fox's, explaining:

"She is her own self and an amazing woman. As I am my own self and an amazing woman. This notion that you ‘follow in the footsteps' of your partner's ex is dangerous. If you live by that idea, then it will lead to the same result. The relationship ending. You are a unique, one of a kind woman, don't follow in anyone's footsteps, make your own path. Create the path YOU want."

Burgess turned the question into a teaching moment, with one last important message for her fans and viewers.

"Remember that women are wonderful creatures. We do not need to tear down others to make ourselves feel stronger. But helping each other, respecting each other and lifting each other up is what truly makes us unstoppable. A community of women around you is a gift."
