Robert Herjavec Calls Connection With ‘DWTS’ Partner ‘More Than Just The Dancing’

Dancing with the Stars contestant Robert Herjavec is impressing everyone, including himself, every time he gets on the dance floor. Maybe Robert didn’t know how well he could dance prior to joining the show. But for Herjavec, it isn’t just his dance moves that are in focus these days. His relationship with his dance partner appears to be taking center stage.

Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson cannot deny the chemistry between them, and the judges have even noted how well they dance together. Now, Herjavec has decided to speak out about their friendship.

According to a new Yahoo report, Dancing with the Stars contestant Robert Herjavec is now sharing his thoughts about the undeniable chemistry that he has with his dance partner. The two have been dancing up a storm together, and there have been plenty of cheek kisses throughout their practices. Now, Robert wants to explain how he feels.

“She’s a great dancer and she’s become a great friend. It’s more than just the dancing. I think we just get along great!” Robert Herjavec explains, not getting into more detail about their current relationship status.

Herjavec didn’t want to get into further details about how he feels about his dance partner, but Robert has had a rough year and he may not want to make the pain worse. He explains that he is in the middle of a divorce from his wife of 24 years, which was so painful for him that he contemplated suicide. Robert explains that there was a period in the beginning of the divorce where his children would not speak to him. Maybe Dancing with the Stars saved him a little.

“I don’t think this could have come at a better time in my life,” Robert says about the dancing opportunity, adding about his promise to give Kym a Ferrari if they won, “You know, sometimes you say stuff in the moment because it seems so impossible that we would win. But every week as we go on, she reminds of that. We’ll see if we get to the finals.”

But Robert Herjavec is clearly impressing the judges with his dances. Last night, he competed by dancing for his mother who died of ovarian cancer in 2006. But as for Kym, he isn’t about to make any romantic moves.

“We do have a lot of chemistry. We get along really well, she’s a lot of fun to hang out with. But she’s already in a relationship with somebody — she has a great dog,” Robert Herjavec has previous said about Kym’s own relationship status, according to the Inquisitr.

But back in November of 2014, Johnson revealed that she was single, so maybe this new relationship isn’t as serious. Maybe there could be something there between Robert and his dance partner. Only time will tell how things work out after Dancing with the Stars.
