Dancing with the Stars contestant Amber Rose claims she was body-shamed by Julianne Hough while critiquing her performance with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Amber revealed this during her Loveline podcast co-host Chris Donaghue when he brought up the fact that Hough was a bit too hard with her criticism.
"Julianne said it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks (Chmerkovskiy) dipped me & she said, 'Oh, I'm uncomfortable,' and I instantly, I felt, I did feel body shamed," Rose revealed.
Comparing herself to the other professional dancers on the show, the other women look stunning with their sexy dresses and perfect splits. "You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on Dancing With the Stars, I mean they dress very sexy and they do the splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and they get a standing ovation. And me for me and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her feel uncomfortable," she added.
However, Hough told E!News that it was clearly a case of misunderstanding and that body-shaming goes against everything she believes in. She reportedly made the uncomfortable comment because she wanted more out of Rose's performance with Chmerkivskiy. "My 'uncomfortable' comment was about the fact that I felt like I wanted more out of the performance – when someone is doing a hot, sexy dance like that without the right amount of energy that is required, it can be uncomfortable to watch," she said.
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC. After Jake T Austin, Rick Perry was eliminated in the previous episode.
