Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson had chemistry on Dancing with the Stars, but they never came out and admitted to an off-screen romantic relationship. Even during an interview with Meredith Vieira at the end of May, Herjavec stopped short of confirming that and he and Kym are an item. He expressed some disappointment in how the show handled their story, specifically when Tom Bergeron put him on the spot after the couple’s elimination.
But if Robert and Kym have a romance, they have at least one supporter from the Dancing with the Stars family: former pro Cheryl Burke. In an interview with People published Thursday, Burke said she hadn’t spoken with Kym in some time, but that she and Robert seemed happy.
“Kym has been such a great friend of mine. I haven’t talked to her in a while, but they seem very in love. All these Instagram pictures! I’m so jealous of her life right now. They are jet-setting the world.
“Kym’s been single and looking for a guy like Robert. So I’m really happy for her.”
Derek Hough also told media back in March that Robert is a good match for Kym.
Recently, Herjavec and Johnson were on a Holland America boat. Johnson, Florence Henderson, and Carson Kressley were all aboard as part of a DWTS-themed cruise. Although not on the official celebrity register, Herjavec was seen in pictures posing with Johnson.

The cruise line was also happy to promote its celebrity guests on its own social media feeds.

While Robert and Kym may or may not be in a relationship, Herjavec has gotten back to work on Shark Tank. The show has begun taping its seventh season with all the familiar sharks apparently in attendance.

In addition to his friendship with Johnson, Herjavec has also bonded with co-stars Suzanne Somers and Noah Galloway, as he told Vieira. Galloway even tweeted to Herjavec on Thursday with some good-natured ribbing about their new found celebrity.
