There’s not too much new here, but since Kaitlyn sent it, I figured I’d post it. From OK! Magazine:
“That hair was amazing,” he laughed on the press line after the show. “I’m growing it back out. I was 21 or something like that. I looked young, didn’t I? Or I’ve just aged a lot since then. It was pretty dramatic. That was really embarrassing. But you know what it was? It was actually nice to see not where I came from but how far I’ve come and kind of reflecting on that and that moment of going, ‘Wow, look at all that’s happened since then.’ I feel very, very grateful. It was actually a really good moment.”
As far as receiving any favoritism during judging from sister Julianne Hough this season on Dancing with the Stars, Derek says it’s a non-issue.
Heidi and I couldn’t decide whether to post on this or not, but, it’s just so….well, interesting. Entertainment Weekly posted a “Nashville” commercial (seen below) on their website with this tidbit: “Juliette may have a chance to turn her career around this season on Nashville. The country singer will take a stab at acting when she auditions for the leading role in a Patsy Cline biopic. Naturally, she’ll sing Cline’s “Crazy” in a bid to get the role—which will eventually bring her into Noah West’s (Dancing with the Stars’ Derek Hough) orbit.” So, could this be a lead in to Derek’s character and story? Watch and listen, and let us know what you think? Thanks to Houghsmile for the heads up.
Derek and Bethany talked to Access Hollywood after Dancing With The Stars results show last night. Bethany said the feedback was so good and her fans were proud. Derek talks on how he felt to see his first audition tape. It was a “great moment of reflection” for him and far he’s come since then. Next week they have a Fox Trot. The song is current and fun. Lot’s more below.
ETA: Hey, and don’t miss seeing some pics of Derek and the other pros at the after party Monday night at Just Jared Jr. Really cute!!

Aren’t these some great photos? Not only did Getty Images provide photos of Derek on Dancing With The Stars last night, they are also featuring new photos of Derek at Mark Ballas’ EP ‘Kicking Clouds’ Debut Party at the Crustacean in Beverly Hills, California. I couldn’t resist posting a photo of Mark and Julianne too. Derek ran into Joey Fatone as well. What a fun night for them all. Be sure to see more photos at any of the Getty links below.
TV Guide has a little scoop where Derek comments on his character in “Nashville”. This is fun. I so want to know and SEE more. Thanks to @anne_p2014 for the heads up!
Nashville scoop, please! — Lisa
Derek Hough will be Dancing and romancing this season. The Dancing with the Stars pro’s character, actor Noah West, stars opposite Juliette in a Patsy Cline biopic, where Hough says Noah will “show her the way,” if you know what we mean. No, perv: We’re talking about movie-making! (Well, at least at first.) “He takes her under his wing and he’s kind of there to make her feel good and cool, and guide her through the experience,” Hough says. “They become very, very close.”
How about some more interviews after Dancing With The Stars last night? Below is Derek and Bethany with Afterbuzz TV. Derek talks of how proud he is of Bethany. He won’t disclose their next song, but, says their dance will be different. They will also be rehearsing in Nashville next week. More below…
