Apologies for everyone! Julianne Hough and Amber Rose cleared the air on ‘DWTS’ this week after Amber said she felt ‘body shamed’ by the judge. After this week’s dance, Amber took the opportunity to apologize for jumping to conclusions. Watch here!
In case you missed it last week, during Amber Rose‘s super sexy dance, Julianne Hough said that she felt “uncomfortable” — a comment that Amber took as body shaming. “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,” Amber said on Loveline with Amber Rose last week. “And me for me and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her feel uncomfortable.”
However, Julianne spoke to E! News after Amber’s podcast made headlines, saying that she absolutely did not body shame her, but “when someone is doing a hot, sexy dance like that without the right amount of energy that is required,” it could get uncomfortable.
So, Amber took the high road on the Oct. 3 episode of DWTS, taking the chance to apologize to Julianne. “When you said that I felt very embarrassed and I felt like you weren’t talking about the dance,” Amber said to Julianne after the dance. “But if I misunderstood, then I apologize. I’m a very positive person, I don’t like to argue or bicker or make things weird.”
Julianne stood up and applauded her after the apology, and the judge also apologized.
“The thing that I love so much about dance is that dance is a universal platform for people to express themselves – any person,” Julianne said. “Whether that is age or height, body shape, ethnicity, sexual orientation. It is something that people can express themselves to do. And for me, I am a huge supporter of that and that alone. As a judge on this show, I am here to solely judge you and everyone else in this competition for only the dancing. So I want you to know that.”
