PureDWTS Angels Weigh In: Amber Rose Has a “Bone To Pick” With Julianne Hough

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.”

More at E Online.

Our thoughts:

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.

PureDWTS Season 23 Fashion: How great did Erin Andrews, Julianne Hough and Carrie Ann Inaba look on Week 1?

WOW! What a week! Definitely eventful. Memorable. And very scary! Miss Vogue has written about what Carrie Ann says about it here on our site, and a great follow up, where ABC talks to the protesters when they were released from jail here on our site. We’ll focus on the fashions here today.

Carrie Ann’s blog is no longer at Parade magazine, she’s moved to SheKnows. Besides the protest incident, she talks about her dress on Monday, as well as her Creative Arts Emmy dress, and gives us a preview of the dress she’ll wear to the Emmy’s on Sunday. Her stylist is Jen Rade, and I think she did a great job in finding these dresses! I loved the pink in her dress on the show, the cut of the dress suited her, and the dress made the turquois in the jewelry pop!

Erin’s got her blog still on People, and I’ve not been able to find something from Julianne this season. If she’s got one and I missed, please mention where in comments, so we can add it in here. Erin’s changed stylists this season, she and Julianne both have Anita Patrickson’s team styling them, so she’s pretty busy on Show days! I loved Erin’s sparkle, and the dress! Wow! and how about Julianne’s hair with the laurel crown and roses in her hair? And that dress!

I wish we at home could see the judges as they’re coming in, because both Julianne and Carrie Ann had gorgeous dresses, but we can only see the top, since they’re sitting down behind a desk!

I can’t pick a favorite this week, all three of these women I think started the season with a BANG!

Let’s hear your thoughts about this week’s fashion. Which was your favorite?

Is Julianne Hough Going To Judge Dancing With The Stars Season 23 Or Not?

The speculation continues for whether or not Julianne Hough is going to judge Dancing With The Stars. She wasn’t mentioned in the ABC press release last night. However, ABC mentioned she was coming back in this report this morning. Now, E Online has now posted this quote….

Meanwhile, now that this season’s cast has been revealed, Hough chatted a bit about the future of Dancing With the Stars.

“It’s funny because everybody is saying that [I’m coming back], but I actually can’t confirm or deny that I’m going to be on so, I don’t know! There’s been so many rumors, but I actually technically haven’t signed anything yet so, we’ll see!”

As for this season’s lineup, she said, “It’s really interesting! If I do end up judging, I can’t really root for anyone to be honest, I have to keep it even. It’s kind of an open field, but there’s definitely some interesting people for sure.”

Well, if you listen to Derek in this new Access Hollywood interview, he said Julianne is judging. Stay tuned for Monday night, Everyone! Three days and counting!

Julianne Hough Is Ready To Do Dancing With The Stars – Pap Videos, New Photos

Lori found us a fun pap video with Julianne Hough while she was out and about in Los Angeles. When asked on Dancing With The Stars, she said “I will be dancin'” (or did she say “I won’t be dancin'”)? Whatever the case, it’s cute and I can’t wait to see her as a judge on the show. Also, don’t miss seeing the Daily Mail and Getty Images for some new photos of her. You can also see a Daily Mail pap video below.
