I’m back, I’ve watched the show… And what in the hell was Val thinking? It started out OK and then it turned into a bad parody of Derek’s fox trot with Nicole that happened in like week three or four combined with the dumbed down version of his Singin’ in the Rain with Bethany. Good lord. What happened to the good old days when bad freestyles actually got like 8s?? Cuz that was bad…and everyone was pretending it was great. How annoying can you get? Read more..

Our hearts are heavy this morning. Derek and Julianne Hough and their family have lost a patriarch in the family. Our deepest condolences, love, and prayers go out to the entire Hough family. RIP Mr. Hough!!xxxxx
Beautiful tributes from Julianne and Derek….
Heaven received another angel today. Many years ago this man purchased a little place on a lake that has now become one of the most special places for my family. The memories created there and that will continue to be created all started from this beautiful man taking a leap of faith. It brought our families together, and reminds us what is truly important. Family. His beliefs and constant faith was inspiring. I'll never forget playing basketball with him, teaching me the hook shot. Or finding my baseball in the rain gutter 10 years after I lost it. Taught me how to play ping pong and only a couple of months ago still could beat me. Introducing me to the Everly Brothers. Every one new "Bubble head Bob" in town. He was greatly admired and respected. Not just for what he did for the community but for the person he was. He has built a beautiful legacy that will live on forever and I am beyond grateful and proud to be his grandson. #family #granpahough #legacy
There was never any doubt how much you loved your family grandpa! You exuded love and light!! You taught me how to fish off the dock, you flipped me over your knees, you were there driving the boat when I learned how to ski, you let me beat you-sometimes- at ping pong, but my favorite was when we danced! Your soft wrinkled skin when you kissed and hugged me is the warmest and safest place I know. I know grandma nearly killed you when you took a leap of faith and bought the lake place back in the day even when you probably couldn't afford it, but you created a legacy for generations of your family and forever changed all of our lives! The foundation of our family is you. Your spirit, your love, your compassion, your talent, your kindness, your dance moves, your charm, your stubbornness, and again your love is all so undeniable! I miss you already, but the memories are beyond anything I could've dreamed to have! You are a wonderful man grandpa and I love you to the moon and back! I'll see you again papa! #familiesareforever
Entertainment Tonight did a report on how Dancing With The Stars will fill in the gap without Derek and Julianne this season (do what you will, but, nothing will ever fill that gap imo. Please try and get them to do some pro numbers or Macy’s Stars of Dances atleast!). They also mention what’s next for Julianne and Derek. They also talk on some of the contestants and Len Goodman coming back. Check out the mention on Kim Fields and how she’s dancing too!
Another plan from the network is to add classic sitcom stars like The Facts of Life’s Kim Fields and Full House star Jodie Sweetin.
As you all know from a previous post, Julianne Hough won’t be returning as a Judge for Season 22 Of Dancing With The Stars. From all the reports out there, it sounds like there weren’t any hard feelings with producers and Rob Wade hopes she will be back on Dancing With The Stars in the future. Hollywood Life, a tabloid who claims to have inside info (though that is very questionable as they have been so wrong on things in the past) is reporting the same as well.
Did Julianne and DWTS part on bad terms? Not at all! “Everyone loves Julianne and expect her to return again in the future,” our source continues. “They didn’t leave things on bad terms at all. They are proud of her and only hope the best for her. The door is always open for a return!”
And thanks to Lori, here is what Julianne said in a new interview with The Skinny Confidential on her new plans.
| What can we expect from you in 2016? |:
JH: The year has already started with a bang, appearing in Dirty Grandpa & I’m still on a high from starring in Grease: Live.
Honestly, it was a dream come true for me & was the best experience of my performing career so far.
The fact that so many people watched & seemed to love it was really icing on the cake— I’m so proud of what we did & will miss being with everyone every day. We’re working hard to continue to grow the community we’ve created with my “Jules” blog & a lot of fun lifestyle and charitable projects connected to that.
Of course, I’m super excited about launching my MPG curated collection this spring along with immersing myself in the process of designing my first collection for fall 2016.
Apart from that, I’m looking at a lot of really exciting film and television projects as an actress and producer.
It’s going to be interesting to see what Julianne has planned as an actress and producer as I loved her in “Grease Live”!! But, oh, what I’d give to see her dancing in some capacity on Dancing With The Stars in some pro numbers atleast in the new season. Whatever the case, we wish her all the best in her new adventures!
According to People, Julianne Hough is not returning as a judge in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Though note (at the link) how she and Rob Wade say this won’t be the last we see of her in the ballroom.
Julianne Hough – who served as a judge on seasons 20 and 21 – will not be returning to the panel for the next season of the reality dance competition.
“I will miss being on the panel for Season 22, but have a lot of exciting stuff coming that I look forward to sharing,” the former DWTS champion, 27, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “The pro dancers, producers and crew at DWTS will always be my family.”
Instead, judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tolioni will once again be joined by Len Goodman, who took last season off because of other filming commitments.
More at People.
I think I’m going to cry. I loved her as a Judge. Though, what I’d give to see her as a returning Pro instead. Yes, I’m dreaming.
