Derek’s taking a break from the popular show and his fellow dancers are already thinking about how they will benefit from his hiatus

We were saddened to hear the news Derek Hough will not be on the next Dancing with the Stars season because he’s taking a break to pursue his film career in upcoming dance movie Cobu 3D. But a DWTS insider says people on the show are glad Derek, 25, is temporarily leaving, both because they are happy for him and because it means someone else will get a chance to win!

“Derek is great, has always been great. He wanted to take time and spread his wings, and we are happy for him. Sure we will miss him while he is gone, but he’ll be back,” says our source. “We are not scared that him leaving will be a permanent thing, like his sister Julianne, we are pretty sure she’s gone forever!”

The other dancers are even looking forward to a Derek-less season! “He’s won so many times, this will give someone else a chance!” exclaims our insider, “Plus, now the celebrities won’t have that potential security blanket of going far in the show just because of his skill and mentoring. It will add more drama, and make our dancers dance 110% rather then 100% in their race to the top.”

“To lose his energy is sad,” our source continues, “But I could see him making appearances if his schedule warrants it.”

The 13th season premieres in March on ABC, and we can’t wait for it! Meanwhile, Derek has been proclaiming his excitement about his new movie all over Twitter, but made sure to tell his DWTS fans “not to worry I will be back in the fall, ready to rock and roll !!!!!”
