Cheryl Burke tried, unsuccessfully, to aid Rob Kardashian in his weight loss efforts.

After starring together on Dancing With The Stars, Burke and Kardashian established a friendship, but sadly, when it came to getting Kardashian help for his weight issues, Burke's calls went unanswered.

“We have talked about it in the past. I have talked about it with the family,” Burke told Life & Style at the 2014 ESPY Awards. “The last time I talked with him, we were texting a few months ago when he wanted to start dancing and stuff. I went to Kris [Jenner’s] house and we were all hanging out.”

In fall 2011, Burke and Kardashian appeared as partners on Dancing With The Stars, where they placed second overall. During his stint on the show, Kardashian appeared to be in great shape, but after the show wrapped, things went downhill and Kardashian began packing on the pounds.

“I wish Rob well. He was one of my closest friends I have had on Dancing With the Stars when it comes to partners,” Burke told the magazine. “I hope he takes care of himself. I’m there for him.”

Although Kardashian may not be taking the help of his former dance partner, reports claim he is making an effort to get his body back with the help of celebrity trainer, Gunnar Peterson. In fact, Peterson recently spoke to PEOPLE Magazine, claiming Kardashian was focused on his fitness.

"I think Rob knows exactly what to do. He's worked out [before] and he's focused," Peterson explained. "We're doing intervals with strength movements: squats, the sled, swings and push presses. It's about getting his heart rate up and keeping it up."
