Jennifer Love Hewitt Defends Cheryl Burke

The talk of the town is Cheryl Burke's weight gain. She's been catching a lot of heat for allegedly gaining weight this season on Dancing With the Stars. But Jennifer Love Hewitt, being last year's target in the tabloids, has come to Burke's defense.

At Saturday's St. Jude's Runway for Life Gala in Beverly Hills, Hewitt said,

"I think her dancing is what everyone needs to be concentrating on. Cheryl is an incredible dancer. She works her butt off—literally—to impress people every single week on Dancing With the Stars
, and I just think she's fantastic."

Even Jennifer's fiancé, Ross McCall, chimed in, "Everyone needs to leave her alone."

As for Jennifer, she's been sticking to a pretty hard core workout routine lately. She's training for a marathon! She says, "It's something I wanted to try and train for, for a long time. I may be walking it or roller-skating it, but I will
be doing it."
