April 5: Julianne Hough strikes a pose at the ACM Awards.
April 5: Julianne Hough with boyfriend and fellow 'DWTS' pro Chuck Wicks.
Here is something that is going to disappoint the millions of males who watch "Dancing With the Stars" every week just to get a sneak peak at the stunning swinger/singer — she’s stepping away.
"I wasn't planning to come back this season because I wanted to focus on my music," Hough told us backstage after taking out the Top New Artist category. "But I went back and it’s been so much fun to dance with my good friend who happens to be my boyfriend." (She then motioned to her personal and professional partner, Chuck Wicks, who was patiently waiting to congratulate his leading lady.)
So are Hough's "Dancing" days done with for good now?
"I will be taking next season off," she confirmed, adding that she'll be busy touring and bringing out the "real" Julianne Hough.
Julianne Hough stole the Academy of Country Music Awards show in Sin City on Sunday night by showing off her flawless figure in a form-fitting gold gown by Zuhair Murad, but the super-svelte star insisted that she has no restrictions when it comes to diet.
"Apparently Us Weekly says I don't eat carbs except for orange juice," she told Tarts, referring to last week's cover of the weekly magazine. "But trust me, I eat what I want. (The story) was very random. So young girls - don’t let OJ be your only carbs!"
So what is the real recipe behind the ballroom babe’s itty bitty body?
"Eat until you’re just full and keep working out," Hough responded.
But the 20-year-old almost revealed a little too much of herself earlier in the evening when her zipper came undone during her acceptance speech. Hough let out a surprised squeal mid-sentence when Jack Ingram was laid his hands on her; well we think he was "trying" to fix the wardrobe malfunction.
