It looks like it’s water under the bridge for Julianne Hough and Amber Rose. The ‘DWTS’ pro-turned-judge took the opportunity to say ‘I’m sorry’ to the model during the Oct. 3 show, after a soundbite was released showing her saying she was ‘uncomfortable’ during her dance.
Julianne Hough, 28, has apologized for the drama that went down on last week’s Dancing With The Stars. “The thing I love so much about dance is that dance is a universal platform for people to express themselves,” she says to Amber Rose, 32, on the Oct. 3 episode. The crowd immediately goes into a frenzy following Julianne’s critique so it’s a little hard to hear, but it sounds like the Footloose actress says, “I’m sorry that there was a misunderstanding” at the end, to which Amber replies, “Thank you for that.” Check out her full comment.

This of course came after Amber’s claim on Loveline With Amber Rose that she felt “body shamed” by Julianne’s comment during her risqué tango. “Julianne said it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me & she said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’” Amber said on her show. “You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on Dancing With the Stars, I mean they dress very sexy and they do the splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and they get a standing ovation. And me for me and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her feel uncomfortable.”
After Amber had said that, Julianne explained that the soundbite wasn’t a live video but a “produced package,” and the former stripper’s body is not what she was uncomfortable about. “I felt like I wanted more out of the performance – when someone is doing a hot, sexy dance like that without the right amount of energy that is required, it can be uncomfortable to watch,” she said to E!, adding, “Trust me I’m ALL for a sexy booty dance!! We all know that!! And any kind of body shaming goes against everything I believe in.”
This past weekend, Amber marched in her “SlutWalk” in LA, promoting women and when asked about the shaming, she said that she and Julianne would speak about it in “private,” and that she wanted to focus on empowering women.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Julianne had to apologize to Amber?
