Rose and 'DWTS' judge Hough cleared the air regarding the latter's comments last week that Rose's dancing had made her "uncomfortable".
After her performance on Monday night’s episode (October 3rd) with dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the 32 year old model addressed rumours that she had become upset by Hough’s comments on the previous week’s show that Rose’s dance had made her “uncomfortable”, with Rose reportedly thinking that the judge meant her iconic hourglass body instead.
“I felt you weren't talking about my dance,” Rose said to Hough, one of the judging panel, on the evening’s episode, indicating that it was all in the past. “If I misunderstood, I apologize. I'm a very positive person. I don't like to argue or bicker or make things weird, so moving forward, I just want complete positive energy.”
Amber Rose and Julianne Hough buried their 'body-shaming' beef
Rose had complained about Hough’s comments during last Thursday’s episode of her personal podcast. “It was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me and [Julianne] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt — I did feel body-shamed,” she said.
28 year old Julianne, a professional dancer on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ on and off since 2007 and who joined as one of the judging panel back in 2014, also spoke about the supposed feud.
“I would like to say one thing also. The thing that I love so much about dance is that dance is a universal platform for people to express themselves. Any person,” Hough told Rose during the show before remarking on her performance.
“Whether that is age or height, body shape, ethnicity, sexual orientation. It is something that people can express themselves to do. And for me, I am a huge supporter of that and that alone. As a judge on this show, I am here to solely judge you and everyone else in this competition for only the dancing. So I want you to know that.”
Rose then took to Twitter to assure her fans that Hough had apologised to her. "Rosebuds! @juliannehough did apologize to me for the way her comment came off. The crowd was clapping loud at the time #GirlPower.”
