US Weekly interviewed Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff. She comments on Julianne Hough and how she feels about her judging the show. More below and at the link…
“I think she is a great girl, I’ve known her for many years,” Smirnoff, 36, told Us of Julianne. “I think that she is wonderful, gorgeous, and talented, but I don’t know if it’s ethical that she is judging while her brother is competing.”
Julianne, 26, was added to the show’s judging panel earlier this month, after appearing as a dancer on the competition program in previous seasons. She joins veteran judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli.
“I may be the most fair person in the world, but if my mom is dancing and she trips, I would be like, ‘Well, I didn’t see that…’” Smirnoff continued to Us. “That is my mother, and I will go stand by her side and support her regardless. Do I think it’s fair? No. But it is a TV show. That is what we have to remember. It’s not necessarily the Bible, it’s just a TV show.”
I think it’s going to be just fine. You are right, Karina! It’s just a tv show in the end.
