In a new interview with the Huffington Post, Mark Ballas talked about Derek and some of the trouble they’d get into when they were teenagers living in London. This is cute. Read on….
What’s the silliest thing you’ve ever lied about?
When we were living in London, Derek [Hough] and I stole my mom’s car when he was 15 and I was 14. And in England you have to be 17 to drive, and we stole the car. And my mom wasn’t in town so we thought, “We are not getting busted.” But when she got back, she went to the local dance store to buy shoes and the guy who sells the shoes — they’re friends — and he was like, “I didn’t know your boys passed their driving test?” So that night she came home and she was like, “Did you steal the car?” And we were like, “No.” And then Julianne [Hough] did us in, she totally told her what we did. [Laughs]
I can’t imagine what the Hough-Ballas household had to have been like, but, I bet it was fun and full of mischief. lol ~Vogue
