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.

Julianne and Derek Hough To Return For Dancing With The Stars Season 23

READ ALL ABOUT IT AT E ONLINE!!! Here’s a take…

We’ll have double the Chmerkovskiys on Dancing With the Stars this season, and also double the Houghs because both Derek and Julianne Hough are returning to the show for its upcoming 23rd season.

E! News has learned that the Hough siblings are both heading back to the ballroom—Derek as a pro and Julianne once again as a judge. ABC does not comment on casting for the show, but the full celeb lineup will be revealed on Good Morning America on Tuesday.

PureDWTS Season 23 – All 24 Olympic Athletes Ever To Do DWTS, Ranked From Worst to Best

So with the Olympics in Rio drawing to a close this coming Sunday (and the pros starting to meet their partners later this week), there’s obviously been speculation that we’re going to see some Olympians on the show this season – seems like Ryan Lochte & Simone Biles are the two most talked-about when it comes to casting rumors.  Which got the Pure Angels thinking about all the previous Olympians we’ve seen on the show, and how well (or not well…) they did.  So why not take a look back at every Olympian (from both the summer AND winter games) that’s ever done DWTS, and see how they stack up?

The main rankings are mine, but Heidi, Vogue, & I all had slightly different rankings when it came to the top 10 – so you can see their individual top 10’s at the bottom.  I’ve included videos of a few of the dances we mention, to jog memories – lord knows ours needed jogging from time to time 😯

Interesting patterns? Gymnasts and skaters seemed to fare the best, and tennis players and boxers tended not to leave much of an impression on any the three of us.  I think we all universally agreed on at least the bottom 2 on the list – they were THAT bad 🙁 Read more..
