During her podcast Loveline with Amber Rose on the Play.it network, she told co-host Chris Donoghue, “Last night was like, they did the commentary, and I, it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks [Chmerkovskiy] dipped me & [Julianne] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed.”She added that while all the other dancers can split, grind and jiggle their way across the floor, she felt shamed because her “body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made [Hough] uncomfortable.”
Hough has responded Rose’s comments, telling E! News, “My ‘uncomfortable’ comment was about the fact that I felt like I wanted more out of the performance – when someone is doing a hot, sexy dance like that without the right amount of energy that is required, it can be uncomfortable to watch. Trust me I’m ALL for a sexy booty dance!! We all know that!!”
