Karina Smirnoff Interviewed About Julianne Hough And Dancing With The Stars

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.

If interested, be sure you see KITV. They have a fun interview up with Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, Sharna Burgess, and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. The Dancing With The Stars pros talk on Ballroom With A Twist and the importance of dancing. This is just part 1. KITV will air Part 2 later.

“All of us travel and do charity work constantly because dance bring smiles to people and that’s the best healing you could ever have,” said Dovolani.

“Dancing has always been a very healthy activity, no only physically, but for your mind and soul. You see people come out of the dance studio happy. Tired in a good way,” said Smirnoff. “So, this is one of the things we do during the show. We want the audience to get up and actually start moving with us because that gift, that passion for dancing is for all of us. We want to be able to share it with people that love the show and love ‘Ballroom With A Twist’ and, for us, it is the opportunity to do it.”
