'Dancing with the Stars' Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson kiss while on romantic getaway

Dancing with the Stars couple Robert Herjavec and pro dancer Kym Johnson, who got eliminated last week, clearly have a steamy romance going on despite trying to keep it hush-hush.
Herjavec has been dodging questions and reports he's dating Johnson for weeks, but Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron let the cat out of the bag that their relationship is not purely platonic when he claimed the Shark Tank didn't win a mirrorball trophy but appeared to steal Johnson's heart.
After their stint on the show's twentieth season, Herjavec and Johnson escaped on a romantic getaway to Palm Springs, CA, this past weekend, Us Weeklyreported.
The couple was photographed kissing outdoors and reportedly couldn't keep their hands off each other. In another picture, Herjavec was shown wrapping his arm around Johnson's shoulders while she placed her hand around his waist. Johnson captioned the image on Instagram, "Kick up your heels....it's the weekend!"
The last time fans saw Johnson and Herjavec kissing was on the Dancing with the Stars stage during their May 4 performance, however, they insisted it was just part of the dance and they were in the moment. Herjavec, especially, seemed to not want fans reading into the lip-lock.
"We just thought, 'Let's see how we feel on the night' and that's what we did," Johnson told Us at the time of the onstage smooch. "We just -- it took me by surprise because I didn't know if he was going to do it or not."
But when they appeared on Good Morning America together following their DWTS ouster, Herjavec admitted "it's more than just dancing" between them.
A source told the magazine the couple was "definitely attracted" to each other from the start.
"He's divorcing, so maybe he wants to find a new hot girlfriend," the source said. "They are constantly all over each other. She can't stop talking about what a good, nice guy he is. They have insane chemistry and are actually a great match."
Herjavec split from his wife Diane Plese, the mother of his three kids, after 24 years of marriage in March.
