Dancing With The Stars' Monday episode turned into a real love fest between competitor Amber Rose and judge Julianne Hough, ending the tension caused by Rose's accusations that Hough had body-shamed her.
The beef started when DWTS judge Julianne Hough commented during Rose's on-air performance that she "felt a little uncomfortable." Amber Rose said afterwards on her podcast Loveline : "I did feel body shamed...my hips, my ass, my breasts made her feel uncomfortable, and I lifted my leg up and it made her uncomfortable, and I felt like it was because my body was too voluptuous."
Hough released a statement in response that her comments were "solely reacting to the quality of the dance."
Going before the judges after dancing a sultry Argentine tango with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy Monday night (October 3), Amber Rose took a moment to "clear the air" with Hough before their score was announced.
Rose reiterated her initial reaction, but then offered an apology, saying: "When you said that I felt very embarrassed, and I felt like you weren't talking about my dance, but if I have misunderstood then I apologize. And 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 and to just have fun."
Hough responded, "The thing I love so much about dance is that it's a universal platform for people to express themselves. Any person--whether that is age, height, body shape, ethnicity or 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 and as a judge, I'm here to solely judge you and everyone in this competition for only the dancing."
The judges went on to award the couple's tango a 24 out of 30 score, and eyewitnesses reported Amber and Julianne shared a hug during a commercial break, so hopefully any burgeoning feud has been laid to rest going into Tuesday night's double elimination episode.
