It’s Carrie Ann vs. Julianne! The two powerful DWTS judges aren’t just evaluating contestants — they’re reportedly judging each other, hard! So which one is going to sashay away from this fight?
Dancing With The Stars judges Julianne Hough, 27, and Carrie Ann Inaba, 47, have reportedly been at each other’s throats at that tiny table, and their diva egos are to blame! Julianne is desperate to be the star off the dance floor, but Carrie Ann isn’t going to let that happen!
Update: Julianne’s rep has confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that this story is untrue; Julianne and Carrie Ann are not fighting.
“Carrie Ann has been at the judges’ table from day one and she was happy being the only woman, but now Julianne is desperate to make her mark,” a source told Life&Style. “Each not only tries to dress better than the other, but they try to outdo each other with their outrageous comments. And the pursed lips and eye rolls when the other one speaks are out of control.”
Well if that’s not some skilled mean girl behavior, then we’re not sure what is! The fight apparently isn’t as superficial as taunting and one-upping, though; there’s real drama here! Carrie Ann and Julianne are in the middle of a serious power struggle at the judges’ table, and they’re of the mindset that only one of them can come out on top! Do you really think Carrie Ann is going to let Julianne steal her thunder?
Carrie Ann was at the judge’s table while Julianne was still a dancer on DWTS. Why would she let Julianne come take her throne? “Julianne may be younger and perkier, but Carrie Ann isn’t letting her rule the roost,” the source told the mag.
We’re wondering how Carrie Ann’s going to prove her dominance as the queen bee of DWTS, and if it’s going to be enough to make Julianne step back. We’re not sure who to put our money on, but may the best woman win!
