This news is blowing up all over. According to E Online, Amber Rose isn’t all too happy with Julianne Hough. On Amber’s recent podcast, she said she felt “body shamed” when Julianne said she “felt uncomfortable” during the grind on Dancing With The Stars this past week. Julianne also responded back to Amber. Below is more. Look for our thoughts afterwards. Be sure to tell us your thoughts too in comments.
E! News has the exclusive clip from Amber’s next episode of Play.it’s Loveline With Amber Rose where the co-host dishes on a recent experience with the blonde judge that rubbed her the wrong way.
Amber’s fellow host Dr. Chris Donaghue mentioned that he felt Julianne’s criticisms of Amber’s dance were unfair, to which she replied, “Last night was like, they did the commentary, and I, it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks [Chmerkovskiy] dipped me & [Julianne] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed.”
Amber added, “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 get a standing ovation. And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable.”
Meanwhile, Julianne tells E! News exclusively, “To be clear, that was a produced package, not live coverage and they can put those sound bites anywhere. My ‘uncomfortable’ comment was about the fact that 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 continued, “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.”

Vogue: When I first heard Julianne say she felt “uncomfortable”, I immediately thought same here since she wasn’t exactly doing a SALSA. Seriously, that dance was kind of a mess from the get go all over. It was like Maks couldn’t get her to do a Salsa, so, he just let her do whatever she wanted.
Miss Heidi: I think AMBER was uncomfortable in that moment and she projected it on to Julianne. I didn’t for a moment think “body shaming” when I heard the comment, I thought she was uncomfortable with the style and content of the dance. Julianne was echoing what most people who read this site were saying about that dance and nowhere did I see criticism of Amber’s body. In fact, most of us think she’s a very beautiful woman…with some insecurities like we all have. Own the insecurity instead of projecting it on to other people. And really, tell MAKS when you’re not comfortable doing something, because doing it when you’re not comfortable – TRULY not comfortable – will show on camera and make others feel the same. Honestly, the discomfort with that dance was that it was a bad dance. I felt the SAME discomfort in watching Maks and Val make idiots of themselves with that little scripted bit they did before their dance. Just dance, boys. And it had nothing to do with their bodies.
