The Dancing with the Stars host said she was moved by her friend's health scare and wanted to take the fate of her own health seriously.
"As soon as I found out my friend Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer, I booked my mammogram," Burke Charvet explained in a new interview with Prevention.
"I called her from the doctor's office and said, 'Thank you for provoking me to have this done'."
Burke Charvet went on to say that the actual mammogram procedure was easier than she expected, adding: "When I was finished, I said to the nurse, 'What's the big deal? There's so much negative talk about the mammogram'.
"The biggest thing was scheduling my day to get there. The actual appointment was a piece of cake."
Rancic underwent a double mastectomy in December 2011 and has since made a full recovery.
