She’ll be joining Carrie, Bruno and Len at the judge’s table this upcoming season. Will be nice to have a newish face up there each week. (Thank god they didn’t choose that woman from Toddlers and Tiaras)
“I’m so excited to be back with my Dancing with the Stars family again on a regular basis,” the ex-girlfriend to Ryan Seacrest said in a release. “I’ve always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I’m acting, dancing or singing, and I’m thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits.”
“Derek and I just finished our Move Live on Tour, which reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career,” she added of her brother Derek Hough, who has also competed as a pro on the show and is returning for season 19. “I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I’m ready to have fun in this new role.”
Excited, because I am one of the dorks who still watches this each week every single season. Are you psyched?
