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.”

Hudgens played Rizzo in the TV special, which aired live on Fox on Sunday night.
Vanessa Hudgens took part in Fox’s special ‘Grease Live’ event on Sunday evening, just hours after announcing her father’s death. Hudgens played Rizzo in the special, the role made famous by Stockard Channing in the original film, alongside Julianne Hough as Sandy and Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko.
Vanessa Hudgens starred as Rizzo in ‘Grease Live’.
Just hours before the broadcast Hudgens announced on twitter that her beloved father Greg had lost his battle with cancer. "I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers," Hudgens wrote.
A new stage adaptation hits the small screen this month.
Yet another much-beloved musical is set to hit the small screen for a live showing in the form of 'Grease: Live', starring the likes of Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit and Vanessa Hudgens - plus, a special cameo from singer Joe Jonas. And, unusually for a televised musical, it will be performed in front of a live audience of 700.
Julianne Hough will play Sandy Young

The 26 year-old star recently revealed her morning routine that helps her stay fit and healthy.
It is easy to tell just by looking at Julianne Hough that she likes to keep fit and healthy, but surprisingly there is more to her fitness regime then just learning all those intense and complex routines on 'Dancing With the Stars.'
Hough recently revealed her intense training regime
Hough, who is now a judge on the hit dancing competition show, came up with other ways to stay in shape than just dancing every day. As well as trying to sleep eight hours a day and eating a healthy breakfast, the 26 year-old star has other tricks up her sleeve.

It was much less offensive than going out in black face that is for sure
When Dancing With the Stars professional Julianne Hough went out for Halloween, her plan was to honour one of her favourite television characters; Crazy Eyes from the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black. What she didn't intend on doing was causing a minor uproar and potentially offend some sensitive souls who were genuinely shocked to see the professional dancer dressed in black face. When it was time for her brother, Derek Hough, to go out for Halloween, you can bet that he kept it generic and inoffensive.
Derek Hough, offending original punks since 2013
Derek dressed up for the Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party in Los Angeles, the same event where Julianne went dressed up as Crazy Eyes (who is played by Uzo Aduba in the show), in much less offensive attire and may have had something to say while he was there. If he didn't address the poor costume choice on the night, then at least he did his best to stick up for his kid sister in the aftermath of the fallout from the costume controversy.
You know it's Halloween season, when the poor decisions begin.
Halloween weekend just passed and with it – the offensive, stereotypical costumes. There are a few every year and celebrities aren’t exempt from the rule. Case in point – former Dancing with the Stars staple Julianne Hough, who, apparently having been absent from the world for the past few decades, decided it would be ok to wear blackface as part of her costume. It wasn’t, of course, but in all fairness, Hough’s costume seems to be more a product of ignorance, rather than outright racial hate.
Halloween is the season for bad judgement, but this is going overboard.
See, everyone (well, most people) like to dress up as their favorite characters, be it from books, movies or TV, especially when Halloween rolls around. In Hough’s case, the character was Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren from Orange Is the New Black, played by actress Uzo Aduba. In our humble opinion, the orange jumpsuit and Crazy Eyes name tag should have made the costume recognizable enough, but Hough apparently decided to go that extra mile, crossing boldly into racially offensive territory. Aduba and her reps chose to wisely steer clear of the whole debacle, but plenty of twitter users were quick to jump on Hough’s case. So much so, that she was forced to apologize the very next morning after the pictures surfaced. And to her critics’ delight, it wasn’t the kind of non-apology we’re used to.
Julianne Hough. Blackface. Enough said.
The world is split into two separate factions. Those who think it's still acceptable to wear a blackface, and those who don't.Everyone's favorite dancer Julianne Hough is semingly a fully paid up member of the former camp, having turned up to a Halloween party on Friday night (October 25, 2013) as a black character from the Netflix drama Orange is the New Black.
Julianne Hough, with Blackface.
The 25-year-old showed up at the Casamigos Tequila bash in Beverly Hills on Friday as 'Crazy Eyes,' the character played by Uzo Aduba in the critically acclaimed drama. Aduba is black. Hough is not black. Herein lies the problem.

There is an acceptable way to portray your favorite characters, but that wasn't it.
There is still tons of cultural appropriation going on in entertainment, fashion, media, you name it. Still, in 2013, one would hope that we’ve at least moved on from blackface – not so, it would seem, as Safe Haven actress Julianne Hough was so keen to demonstrate ahead of Halloween this year. In a misguided nod of appreciation to the hit series Orange Is the New Black, Hough donned an orange jumpsuit, a “Crazy Eyes” nametag (apparently portraying) Orange character Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren… and painted herself with a thick layer of shiny brown makeup.
The platinum blonde, caucasian actress somehow decided it would be okay to wear blackface to a party.
Given the tradition of using blackface to mock the entirety of the black American population, and its use to denote black people as “other.” In short, not cool. Twitter users, bloggers and the general population of the internet was quick to point this out to Ms Hough.
'Rock of Ages' star Julianne Hough is snapped running errands in Beverly Hills wearing a blue denim smock-like dress and high-heeled ankle boots. She is seen waiting at a door somewhere, distractedly looking at her phone before following a man into the building.
Ryan Seacrest and girlfriend-of-two-years Julianne Hough are taking a break to focus on themselves.
Ryan Seacrest and girlfriend Jennifer Hough have decided to take a break from their relationship.
After dating for more than two years, the media mogul and American Idol host and his actress and Dancing with the Stars pro girlfriend are calling it quits in order to take care of themselves and their respective careers, People magazine reports. "It's a hard thing to do, especially when you're so caught up in your work and bettering yourself," Hough recently told PARADE. "I think at the end of the day you have to find a balance with what's really important." Apparently, this no longer includes their relationship.
This comes as a bit of a surprise, as there has been no indication of any trouble between the two. In fact, just after the new year, Hough and Seacrest took a special romantic trip to St. Barts together, where they appeared to be more in love than ever. The fast pace of Hollywood has taken its toll on the relationship though and now the pair are calling it quits. Well, a break isn’t the same as a breakup anyway, right?And even if it is, at least these two are being remarkably civil about the whole thing, unlike some other Hollywood couples that come to mind. And there have been no songs written about the whole thing (yet).
Police have opened an investigation into the theft of Julianne Hough's jewelry, thought to be worth $100k.
Julianne Hough is reeling from having $100,000 worth of jewelry stolen from her car on Friday night (March 8, 2013). The actress - the girlfriend of Ryan Seacrest - was in Hollywood visiting a friend in an apartment complex, parking her Mercedes in the lot while leaving three pieces of jewellery inside the car, jewellery that Ryan had given to her.
According to TMZ.com, Julianne returned to the vehicle a few hours later, only to find the door wide open and her jewels nowhere to be seen. It's unclear whether Hough left the door unlocked, though there were no visible signs of forced entry. Though specifics are sketchy, there were 3 pieces of jewelry in the car, carrying a total value of 100k. One of the items was a watch worth $50,000 alone. Hough has not commented publically on the matter, though a police investigation is currently underway into the alleged theft.
We're guessing Seacrest isn't going to be too happy if it's discovered that Julianne left the door unlocked, though we can't imagine it'll take him long to make $100,000 and buy his girlfriend a whole new set of jewels. Maybe 24 hours, if that.
'Safe Haven' main stars Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel are snapped as they arrive outside the movie's New York premiere along with singers Colbie Caillat and Gavin Degraw. Josh is seen greeting Gavin saying, 'Yeah, you made it!' before giving him a friendly hug and posing for photos with him. Josh takes a photo with a fan before going inside.
Ah, Valentine’s Weekend. That thing that doesn’t actually exist because there’s only actually one day that’s officially attributed to Valentine’s Day but it does exist in the world of the movie box office. It’s the weekend for people who were too stingy to take their partners out of actual Valentine’s Day, because all of the prices are inflated, to schlep over to the local movie theatre, with a rose between their teeth for no good reason and treat their loved one to a terrible, terrible movie.
That’s right. Normally, we like to give our readers a few tips and pointers with regards to the upcoming box office releases for the forthcoming weekend, make a few recommendations, etc etc. Well, this week, can we simply suggest that you stay home? What we appear to have on our hands this week is the biggest collection of cinematic flops since as far back as we can remember. Or at least since last Valentine’s Weekend.
First up, if you’re still interested in learning which films you should not go to see this weekend, is Safe Haven. A woozy adaptation of yet another Nicholas Sparks novel. Yes, we loved The Notebook. Yes, OK, we admit, what we mean is we loved Ryan Gosling in The Notebook. And yes, we suppose that Zac Efron did a pretty good job in The Lucky One. But it takes more than a pretty couple (Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough) to make a successful adaptation of one of Sparks’ ever-popular tear-jerk romance novels.
It’s Valentine’s Day. You need to choose a movie to take your loved one to go see at the local theatre. It’s 2013. You pretty much have a choice between the latest Bruce Willis blockbuster A Good Day To Die Hard, or Safe Haven, the latest Nicholas Sparks novel adaptation (starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel). Now then. You’d be forgiven for thinking that this would be an astute choice, based on past successes, with the Ryan Gosling-starring The Notebook and the Zac Efron / Taylor Schilling love drama The Lucky One. You would, however, be wrong.
Condemned by the majority of critics that have seen the latest tear-jerker from director Lasse Hallstrom (of Chocolat fame), Safe Haven doesn’t pack quite the emotional punch that it promises. A sorry case of style over substance, it seems that two beautiful lead actors do not a successful movie make. Betsy Sharkey of Los Angeles Times described the movie as being “Long on beauty shots, short on depth,” whilst Claudia Puig of USA Today offers some sage advice for anyone looking to make a last minute theatre booking today (February 14, 2013): “Safe Haven may not be the most dangerous place to spend Valentine's Day - but it's hardly a worthwhile romantic choice.” Chicago Sun-Times was far less forgiving in his unsentimental summary, writing “Either the filmmakers were out of their minds, or they must think we're out of our minds to buy into this schmaltz.

Julianne Hough caused a stir at the New York premiere of her latest movie Safe Haven, by opting for a dress-over-pants look, possibly inspired by a similar ensemble sported by Emma Watson not so long ago. 24 year-old Hough wore a grey dress, embroidered with flowers and with a white, 1960s-style collar, over grey trousers and with shiny silver heels.

Ellen told her audience about a joint birthday party between herself and her wife Portia de Rossi in which Jennifer Aniston's fiancée Justin Theroux was persuaded to do some breakdancing, reports People. That's the kind of friends Ellen DeGeneres has. Anyway, never one to be outdone, Seacrest's girlfriend, ballroom dancer, singer and actress, Julianne Hough gave Theroux a dance off.
"[They] decided to have a breakdancing break-off," DeGeneres said. "[Julianne] was wearing a skirt and goes, 'I need pants.' ... She and Justin Theroux had a huge dance-off. It was crazy... She's an amazing dancer." A statement which Seacrest heartily agreed with. Apparently, Hough is "amazing at literally everything."
The issue on everyone's lips in the U.K is that of child abuse, since Jimmy Savile's death sparked a deluge of allegations of abuse against him and other famous British television personalities.
Julianne Hough has given a brave interview to Cosmopolitan magazine, in which she talks of the abuse she faced as a child. A 10-year-old American girl, away from her parents to study dance in London, Hough's story isn't for the faint hearted. "I was abused, mentally, physically, everything," she explains. "I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life," she adds. "But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love." For Hough, the abuse became worse "when I started hitting puberty, when I started becoming a woman and stopped being a little girl." Now 24, and flourishing as a young woman in a vibrant career, Hough doesn't want to name any names: "I'm a very forgiving person, and I don't want to hurt anybody," she says. "What's past is past."
Clearly a smart, intuitive and capable person, Julianne is in a position to talk about her life in a candid manner, but many aren't. Hopefully her public admittance will inspire many to come forward with their own, while the U.K faces a dark investigation into a clearly floored child protection system.
Julianne Hough, the Hollywood actress and dancer, has revealed how she was physically and mentally abused during a five-year scholarship in London when just 10-years-old. Hough - the girlfriend of media mogul Ryan Seacrest - told Cosmopolitan magazine that her time at the Italia Conti Academy of the Arts turned into a nightmare after she had made the long journey from Utah.
"I was abused, mentally, physically, everything," she explained, adding that it got worse "when I started hitting puberty, when I started becoming a woman and stopped being a little girl." The 24-year-old, who recently rode out Superstorm Sandy in a New York hotel room, said, "I was told if I ever went back to the United States, three things were going to happen. One: I was going to amount to nothing. Two: I was going to work at Whataburger. And three: I was going to end up a slut. So, it was like, I can't go back. I have to be this person."
Of course, Hough returned to her native USA and rose to become one of the most popular dancers in the country. In recent years, she's made high profile movie appearances (Footloose, Rock of Ages) and stars opposite Josh Duhamel in Safe Haven, a new romance that hits cinemas on Valentine's Day.
Just quite how widespread abuse is never fails to be both surprising and sadenning, so Julianne Hough's confessions to Cosmopolitan Magazine have been truly shocking to the nation.
The young star who appeared on Dancing With the Stars in 2007, and is about to appear in Safe Haven alongside Josh Duhamel (Transformers trilogy), a movie that deals with strikingly similar issues to those she has faced for real.
When she was 10 Hough was sent to a dance school, London's prestigious Italia Conti Academy of the Arts, having won a five year scholarship. "I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer," she says. "I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love."
The latest trailer for the upcoming Rock of Ages movie adaption gives us much more to contemplate as the June 15th release date draws ever closer. The upcoming musical comedy features hits from the likes of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister and Whitesnake to name but a few.

After a series of rejections, she stumbles upon the Burlesque Lounge on Sunset, run by jaded diva Tess (Cher) with the help of her long-suffering buddy Sean (Tucci). Ali charms sexy barman Jack (Gigandet) into a barmaid job, while keeping her sights on the stage. And she's also wooed by Marcus (Dane), a developer who's trying to buy the financially strapped club.
