Sharna Burgess has waltzed into a new chapter in her life.

But that's not to say she's fully closing the door to her past, as the former Dancing with the Stars pro, who previously expressed "shock" over not being asked to return for season 32, shared whether she'd return to the ABC competition series in the future.

"I think closure is a really interesting word and I don't know because I don't know if that is closed for me," Sharna told E! News' Justin Sylvester and guest host Garcelle Beauvais on the Oct. 23 episode. "I don't know if I will go back, I don't know if I want to or if I'll get asked to. We'll have to see where life is next year for everyone involved."

But for now, the 38-year-old, who cohosts the Oldish podcast with fiancé Brian Austin Green and Randy Spelling, is grateful for time off the dance floor, which includes raising her and the Beverly Hills, 90210 star's son Zane, 14 months.

"Right now, I am embracing and grateful for this change in direction and this open space I have to do other things," she confessed. "I get so much time with the baby. I honestly would not change a single thing about my life. I love every single thing about it."

And what's there not to love? After all, the dancer and Brian are also getting ready to tie the knot.

As for the details surrounding their trip to the altar? Well, those will come eventually. "Right now, we're not even wedding planning," Sharna explained, to which Brian, who popped the question in July, chimed in, "The engagement planning was enough, so now it's like we're back into life a little bit and then we'll get to wedding planning."

But when it comes to who may be more of a bridezilla as they get planning, Sharna has already cast her vote.

"I've referred to it as my wedding a couple of times," she explained, "so I feel like it's going to be me."

But Brian isn't handing over that title quite yet. "I can be very OCD with details sometimes," he noted. "We'll fight it out for bridezilla." 

And although Sharna has tangoed with the idea of returning to DWTS one day, she'll always have fond memories of being paired up with Brian during season 30.

After Justin asked if taking their chemistry to the dance floor "spiced things up" for their relationship, the ballroom dancer quipped, "I mean, we were already spicy. We had already been together for a year."

Brian, who said he felt the show "put pressure on us," explained how he prioritized their love first and foremost.

"When you're going into something and you already have a relationship going and you're trying to make sure and walk that line of, 'OK, it's important to do well,'" he admitted, "but at the end of the day, our relationship came first."

In fact, the two left the show even more jazzed up about their IRL partnership.

"I think it solidified and showed us how much of an amazing team we are," Sharna said, "and that was really beautiful that we got to do that."
