Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson won’t say they are in a relationship, but after their elimination from Dancing With the Stars Tuesday night, they revealed one thing. They are still going to be hanging out together. In an interview with Glamour blogger Jessica Radloff, Herjavec said Johnson will accompany him to Chicago, where he is due to give a speech.
“Chicago on Thursday. I have to do a speech, so Kym will come with me.”
Radloff pressed the couple for more information about their “exotic” travel plans. In a previous blog, Jessica wrote that Herjavec let slip the couple’s plans for a vacation. Of course, rumors have been rampant since the Dancing With the Stars season began that Herjavec and Johnson are more than professional ballroom dance partners.
As for Chicago, Robert brushed off Radloff’s suggestion that the windy city was not an “exotic” locale.
“Chicago’s not exotic?… Chicago’s pretty exotic… We’ll have a great time in Chicago.”
Kym seemed to agree, gushing about the city’s many fine qualities, even if it is, as Radloff implied, still cold this time of year.
“Yeah, I love Michigan Avenue, all the shopping. Yeah.”
It is possible that Robert and Kym are simply rehearsing in Chicago for the Dancing With the Stars finale, on which they will appear.
As for that behind-the-scenes package that showed Robert and Kym in some intimate moments during rehearsal, Robert said he wasn’t surprised to see his gushing affection for Kym broadcast nationwide. “[I]t was in good humor and funny.” Quoting the DWTS “Dance Center” skit, Robert said, “It’s Kym-plicated.”
Although Robert and Kym won’t make it official, a source told Entertainment Tonight the romance rumors are true. The source said the Shark Tank star and dancing veteran “are inseparable and madly in love.” Johnson is single and Herjavec separated from his wife last year, which was announced this spring.
When their elimination was announced, host Tom Bergeron told Herjavec he suspected “you’ve won someone’s heart,” to which Robert responded, “Tom, I’m not sure I feel that way about you.” It was a moment Herjavec recounted on Twitter.
