Tom and I are quits

DANCING with the Stars beauty Kym Johnson yesterday confirmed her romance with TV hunk Tom Williams was over.

The talented dancer was in Rockhampton for the Christmas pageant and ended weeks of media speculation by revealing she and dancing partner Tom Williams had called it quits.

"Right now I'm just wanting to take some time for myself,'' she said.

Kym plans a new future after Tomn From front page. ? "I think it is something every girl needs to do after a breakup.''

Of course, she hasn't ruled out meeting new people completely and said while in Rockhampton she planned on hitting the town.

"Who knows what could happen?'' she said.

"I hope to go out and see the place a bit.''

And a good-old Aussie is just the type of guy she is looking for.

"I went out with a couple of European guys before and I prefer Australians,'' she said.

"I'm looking for someone genuine.''

Yet talking about her relationships to the media is still something with which she is not comfortable.

"I am a very private person and it is still very strange,'' she said. "It is weird talking about these personal things. I think you just have to be honest with people.''

It was Ms Johnson's success on Dancing with the Stars that pushed her into the public eye.

But with the hit Channel 7 series going into its third season, she said she was unsure if she would sign on again.

"It is a very intense thing and to do it again is something I am thinking about,'' she said.

"I don't think people realise the hard work that is involved in the show.''

She did say though she would like to continue teaching dance.

"Dancing is what I do, it is my life, my passion,'' she said.
