Cheryl Burke has asked Leah Remini to be her maid of honor in her wedding to Matthew Lawrence.
“She said yes! #maidofhonor So excited to have you be part of such a special time in our lives @leahremini!” Burke wrote on Instagram. “We’ll be rooting for you at the #Emmys tonight ❤.”
The former “Dancing With the Stars” pro was referring to the nomination of Remini’s series, “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath,” in the Outstanding Informational Series or Special category. Remini’s show won last year but lost on Sunday to “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.”
Burke and Lawrence got engaged on her 34th birthday in May. They first met through his brother Joey Lawrence when he was a contestant on the dance competition show. They dated for a year in 2007 before calling it quits.
