When Dancing With The Stars decided they needed to make some changes to keep ratings up, I had in mind more Maks Chmerkovskiy; specifically more shirtless Maks. Instead they decided to bring back former fan favorite Julianne Hough, not as a “pro” but as a judge!
Sources connected to the show reveal that Julianne has been made an offer to join the show as the fourth judge, which means no one is being replaced or fired, they’re simply adding a magical extra! Julianne’s people are in negotiations with DWTS to make the deal, which is supposed to happen soon. Julianne had a trial run last season which didn’t go well, but apparently ABC is still happy to have her return.
Rumor has it Maks was initially supposed to nab the extra judges spot, but instead they went with Julianne. Perhaps when Len Goodman takes that retirement…

As for her illustrious acting career, Julianne is still going to pursue that because sources tell TMZ, the DWTS judges thing is only a few hours per week and doesn’t film year-round.
I have to wonder if Julianne can be objective about certain competitors – like her brother Derek Hough, who is already judges pet.
DWTS returns to ABC on September 15th.
