Is There Romance In The Air?

It looks like there could be a little romance on the cards for “Dancing With the Stars” partners Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough.  The two have looked awfully cozy all season long on the show, hugging their way through their backstage interviews with Samantha Harris, and now, it appears they’ve gone one step further, sharing a smooch on the beach.

Shannon, 34, and Hough, 22, (that’s a 12 year age difference, for those counting), were captured cuddling on a Malibu beach Thursday; a cuddle which later turned into a lip-locking embrace.  Source
