Nobody messes with Derek Hough’s little sister! After Amber Rose accused Julianne of body shaming her on an episode of ‘DWTS,’ Derek is now stepping in to defend his family. Check out what the professional dancer had to say!
They say blood is thicker than water, so maybe Amber Rose, 32, will think twice next time before coming after Derek Hough‘s, 31, sister. Amber put Dancing With The Stars judge, Julianne Hough, 28, on blast via her podcast after she made a less-than-desirable comment about the former stripper’s dance routine. Now, it’s Derek’s turn to throw in his two cents. “I think we all know Julianne and she is a huge advocate for being kind,” he explained to ET, adding, “I understand that she felt bummed out, but to say [she] was [body shaming] is definitely just false.”
So what did Julianne say exactly that got her into this mess? Well, during Amber’s dance, she lifted her leg above Maks Chmerkovskiy‘s head, which made Julianne feel “uncomfortable.” That’s all she said, but the season 23 competitor still went on a tirade on her podcast, Loveline With Amber Rose. “I did feel body-shamed,” she confessed on-air. “And for me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts, made her uncomfortable.” It’s true that Amber is the curviest dancer competing this season, but we can’t imagine Julianne said that to be overtly cruel.
The beautiful judge stood up for herself by saying that body-shaming “goes against everything” she believes in as a woman. “My ‘uncomfortable’ comment was about the fact that I felt like I wanted more out of the performance,” the Grease Live actress explained. If there’s anyone who should feel confident watching a sexy dance, it’s Julianne! She’s been shaking her booty in movies like Rock Of Ages and Footloose for years, so we’re pretty sure this was all just a misunderstanding. We hope they can make up!
