Part 2 DWTS Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough, Julianne Hough At The 2014 Emmy Awards

I can’t get enough of the new photos of Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough, and Julianne Hough at the 2014 Emmy Awards. Below are some more photos from last night. E news is reporting “white” gowns were the trend of the night and Carrie Anne and Julianne couldn’t have looked more stunning in theirs (in my opinion). Click the Getty links and see Pure Derek Hough if you want more pictures and info on the night! Note: Derek and Julianne both attended HBO’s Emmy Party afterwards. Derek even danced with Sofia Vergara. HOT!

Mark Ballas Discusses Julianne Hough’s New Judge Role

And he thinks it’s a great idea!  Gee, what a shock. Not.  :-)

Turns out, the pros – in particular, one who was so “wronged” by her – don’t seem all that worked up by Julianne getting hired.  In fact, this particular pro thinks it’s great because she’s actually won the show and is a trained ballroom dancer, unlike two of the other judges on the panel.   Hell, Mark wasn’t even sure if it was a full time job because, unlike some, he has a life. :-)  I can hear it now – “Oh, they’re like family so of course he’s not mad.”  Ya can’t have it both way, folks – he was the recipient of one of Julianne’s supposedly controversial comments and he’s cool.

Perhaps some should take notes of a mature, realistic reaction…. Mark talks to Perez Hilton.

Also – listen to the whole video. Mark says he called the other day to figure out his schedule and the producers haven’t finished pairing celebs with pros yet. So, with the exception of those who might have gotten requested, they selected their professional dancers without them having a partner in mind. This seems very unusual.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Julianne Hough Interviewed On Judging Dancing With The Stars, Won’t Be Mean And Malicious

People interviewed Julianne Hough on her new role as a judge for Dancing With The Stars and why she decided to do it. She also comments on what she hopes to bring to the table. Note how she isn’t going to be mean and malicious. More below and at the link.

“My role is to encourage and be supportive, and to also be candid and honest and try not to beat around the bush, to be too politically correct,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “I want to give critiques so they can improve. I’m not there to be harsh or cause a controversy. I won’t be mean or malicious. That’s not who I am. That’s not my role at all.”

Hough, a two-time pro champ on the show, has served as a guest judge in previous seasons, but she felt the time was right to make it a more permanent gig this fall.

“After being on tour with my brother [Derek], it felt like time to move on,” Hough told PEOPLE. “I felt like I really reconnected with fans, and the people have supported me since day one. They have followed me from Dancing with the Stars to my other aspirations. It just feels like the perfect time to reconnect and be a part of where it all began, with my family.”

Julianne talked with E News too. Great interview…a must listen!

You can also see some gorgeous new pictures of her at the Daily Mail attending the US Open Kick Off Party.

ETA: Erin talked about Julianne in a new Fox interview as well…
