So You Think You Can Dance’s Mary Murphy talked with E Online about Derek and Julianne. She doesn’t plan to give Julianne any judging advice for Danding With The Stars because she has done a lovely job in the past. She comments on Derek too and how “he’s living the dream” right now. More below….
“I have no advice for her, because I saw her guest judge before and she’s absolutely lovely,” Murphy told E! News. “She did a great job then and I know she’ll do a great job now. I’ve known her since she was like this high. I’m so proud of her and so excited for her. I think she’s going to be a great addition.”
And as for Julianne’s brother Derek, in addition to returning to DWTS as a pro dancer for Season 19 (with his own sister as a judge!), he’s also set to guest star on Nashville in a major arc this season…but Murphy had no idea he had set his sights on acting. In fact, we were the ones to actually break the news to her!
“He’s going to be on Nashville? I love that show! Oh, that’s exciting!” Murphy said. “I didn’t hear that. That’s great. He is definitely living the dream right now.”
Murphy is proud to see the Hough siblings landing so many great opportunities like these. “These kids are both on the right track,” Murphy said. “They’re both hard workers. Ever since they were seven years old, I’ve seen them dancing and I’m just so proud of them. I love watching them blossom like this and it’s great seeing everything that’s happened to her and Derek.”
