Wow, what another unforgettable night for Derek and Amber! From their Paso Doble to their Team Fox dance, I’m utterly speechless. It’s the “Fox” medicine again. Let’s see what they had to say about everything with Access Hollywood first….
Amber says she didn’t know they were at the top of the leaderboard last week when they were picking their Team. Derek says they had a blast all week working on it. Then they discuss his back injury. The injury is in a new lower spot, but, he plans to take care of it, try some different things, and keep moving forward with Amber. Note how he even passed out on Sunday because of the pain. Amber gives Derek props and calls him “Superman” this week…and that he is. Lot’s more in detail below.
ABC7 interviewed Derek and Amber in this recap too. If you have trouble with this video, see this link instead.
Here is some E News coverage….

ETA: E News also interviewed Derek about the controversy surrounding Julianne and the Halloween costume she wore this past weekend. It’s sad how the media tries to sensationalize it. Good job Derek for saying something.
Derek Hough exclusively tells E! News that Julianne is “mortified” at the backlash she has received for donning blackface while out at a Halloween party Friday, Oct. 25. “She’s so apologetic. She’s so so sorry and I just hope that we can all forgive her and move on,” Hough reveals backstage Monday night at ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
While dressing up as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren from the Netflix hit series, Orange is the New Black, the 25-year-old actress’ dark makeup was paired with a bright orange jumpsuit and prison I.D. badge.
Derek assures fans that it was never Julianne’s intention to offend anyone. Hough defends, “She’s my little baby sister and she’s the sweetest thing ever.” The Emmy-award winning dancer adds, “She is just beyond beside herself.”

ETA5: E News has posted another article today which features an interview after the show with Derek. Below is what he told them on his injury.
As for how he’s feeling, Hough admits it’s not exactly 100 percent. “I’ll figure it out. I got an MRI today and it’s a bulging disk in my lower spine, which it’s normally my neck,” he told us. “Anyone who watches the show knows I always have issues with that. It’s all good, it’s all good. I’m taking precautions and taking care of it and moving on. The show must go on!”
Below he and Amber also talk with Extra;
Also, thanks to Natalie for sending us this TV Guide article with a mention on Derek where he defends Julianne and the costume she wore last weekend.
“She’s so apologetic,” he told E! News. “She’s so, so sorry and I just hope that we can all forgive her and move on. … Obviously, it wasn’t her brightest moment in her life.”
Derek says Julianne is “mortified” at the backlash she received for wearing blackface when she dressed as Crazy Eyes from Orange Is the New Black over the weekend, and that the Dancing with the Stars alum never intended to offend. “She’s my little baby sister and she’s the sweetest thing ever. She is just beyond beside herself,” Derek said.
