Julianne Hough was fired so DWTS could rehire popular judge Len Goodman according to a new report. Dancing With The Stars 2016 spoilers have confirmed that Julianne Hough will not be returning to the judges panel, nor as a pro dancer in Season 22. Julianne likes to think that she left the show on her own accord to pursue a movie career (again, last time was an epic failure).
But, according to a new report – Hough was sent packing by producers to “save the show.”
Despite her brother Derek Hough’s popularity, Julianne Hough seemed to rub Dancing With The Stars fans the wrong way – and her co-stars as well! The National Enquirer is reporting that TPTB at the ABC dancing competition gave Julianne the boot because they blamed her for a ratings slump while she was on the judges’ panel.
An insider dished to National Enquirer that Julianne Hough was fired from DWTS because she stirred up too much drama behind the scenes, and wasn’t doing the reality show any favors. The source revealed, “Julianne found fame — and an acting career — through dancing on the show, but she acted like she was doing everyone a favor by going back as a judge.
Both Bruno [Tonioli] and Carrie Ann[Inaba] thought she had a major attitude, and that infuriated them!”
The set source went on to say that Len Goodman only agreed to return to Dancing With The Stars if Julianne left, “They need him to save the show. I’m told removing Julianne and going back to a three-member panel was key to getting him to return!”
Dancing With The Stars fans don’t seem to upset but Julianne’s exit from the show – which only proves that the producers made the right move. When Len Goodman left the show in Season 21, it was a huge deal. Julianne Hough didn’t receive a send-off, nor were too many fans outcries spotted on social media.
