TMZ Reports Julianne Hough Returning To Judge DWTS, Maks Chmerkovskiy Upset Didn’t Get The Job

Who knows if this news is true or not? Though note how TMZ has been a good source for Dancing With The Stars pre-season rumors for several years. Read on for more….

Sources connected with the show tell us … they’ve made an offer to Julianne to become the 4th judge … the other 3 are coming back. We’re told the 2 sides are in negotiations and are expected to make the deal.

Julianne left the show years ago to pursue an acting and singing career, but it’s been rough going … particularly “Rock of Ages” and “Footloose.” We’re told her commitment to DWTS is only a couple of hours a week, so she’ll still pursue acting.

And there’s this … our sources say Maksim Chmerkovskiy wanted the judging gig and wanted it BADLY … and he’s really pissed he didn’t get it and has made it known to producers.

I hope this is true. I love Julianne and I’m an even BIGGER fan after the Move Live on Tour! I’m also glad the three regular judges will be back.

ETA: Heidi here…TMZ has updated the story and removed the bit about Maks. I think someone made a phone call – perhaps Maks will still get his shot at a guest judging moment. But maybe not. Who knows?

ETA2: “Sources” talk to E News on Julianne and if she’s coming on as a 4th judge. Apparently, she hasn’t signed on…yet. A rep for ABC won’t comment. More below and at this link.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

GMA Coverage Of DWTS Eliminated Couples, Judges Name Next Week’s Guest Judge

Lot’s of fun coverage today of the eliminated couples on Good Morning America thanks to the Vocal Vault, Karina, and @GMA. Plus, the judges announced Robin Roberts will be the celebrity guest judge on Dancing With The Stars next week (Awww, I love her). Note too how they said there will be a guest judge every week from next week forward (wow, ok, but, isn’t that a little much?) Also, note how Sean remarked in his interview that he and the producer had a disagreement which he thinks sealed his fate, but, I don’t think that had anything to do with him being eliminated, do you? I think his fan base was too small compared to Billy Dee’s (who I think should have left before Sean)? Let us know what you think. Below is more in detail…

ETA: Ricky Martin and Redfoo from the band LMFAO will also be judging in the next weeks as well as Mario Lopez and Julianne Hough as previously reported.

DWTS Carrie Ann Inaba Interviewed About Her Judging Style, The Other Judges, And More

Parade.com has posted a new interview with Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba. At the link, you can read about her dancing days with Madonna (awww, The Girlie Show…one of my faves) and Jennifer Lopez, but, below you can read about her favorite contestants on Dancing With The Stars, the dynamic with her fellow judges, her judging style, and more. And while we’re on the subject: from one to five, how would you rate Carrie Ann’s judging style? I’ll meet you in comments with my take.

PARADE Who have been some of your favorite DWTS contestants over the years?
I like the comedians, because they’re fun to watch. Last year we had a great run with Bill Engvall. I love the underdogs.

What’s the dynamic like with your cojudges, Len Goodman and Bruno ­Tonioli?
We’re the three amigos! Len is old-school and regimented. Bruno and I look for artistic expression, but I love when people take risks. The only rule I don’t let the dancers bend is “no lifts.”

You are such a stickler for that! What’s the reason?
It was developed to make sure the older couples would have the same shot as the younger ones, because they’re just not as athletic. It keeps everybody on a level playing field. That’s why I stick to it.

What’s your least favorite dance style?
The Lindy Hop, because I don’t like to be thrown around. Salsa is probably one of my favorites, but it’s hard because I have a bad neck injury. I have spinal stenosis, and if I do the wrong move, I could be paralyzed. About seven years ago, I started having so much pain in my neck and back that I was losing my range of movement. So now I mostly do yoga and Pilates.
