She did it. Brooke Burke and her partner Derek Hough have been crowned the newest winners of Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday’s 2-hour finale of the competition. The duo crushed their rivals’, partners Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer and NFL star Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson, dreams of making it to the top spot after scoring a 58 out of 60 for their samba and perfect freestyle dance moves. Brooke and Derek, who have been dancing together for 10 weeks, also wowed the crowed with their Viennese waltz, after which Brooke admitted it felt “unbelievable” to win. And it seemed like her hubby, Baywatch hottie David Charvet, was just as happy about her big win – he was seen crying in the audience. How sweet!

And Reese seemed to be making herself right at home in her new ‘hood, stopping for a snack at Milk & Cookies bakery.
She’s Moves Quick!
