Cody Linley will be dancing with Edyta Sliwinski again next week it seems as Julianne Hough will not be returning to Dancing With The Stars as of yet. Last week she went into surgery for appendix removal and had hoped to return to the show to dance next week. Her brother and fellow pro dancer, Derek Hough gave an update on his sister’s condition.
“She was in a lot of pain for a couple of days afterwards,” Derek explained to OK! magazine following Monday night’s performance show, where he and celebrity partner Brooke Burke scored a perfect 30 for their dance. “But she’s a fighter; she’ll get through.”
Julianne was optimistic that she would return to dance next week, but her brother is more cautious. He said, “I don’t think she’ll be back to dance next week. I’m going to make her stay in bed!”
The Hough family seems to be going through an unlucky streak over the past two weeks, despite Derek’s perfect score on the dance floor. Derektold OK! that his and Julianne’s father, who resides in Utah, snapped his collar bone in half while playing lacrosse.
Derek said that his father was in good humour after the inury and even joked about it. “In humor, after he did it, with his bone popping out of his shoulder, he said, ‘Yeah, I thought I was young and I forgot I’m 54 years old,’” Derek told OK!. “I love him. This happened a day before Julianne went into surgery. They actually went into surgery on the same day.”
