Last week, Rose shared that she had felt body shamed after the Dancing with the Stars judge made a remark about being "uncomfortable" during the salsa, sparking a week of drama. This week, the model and dancer made up, after Hough clarified that she had been commenting solely on the dance and not on the other woman's body. 

“Like I said in the package, when you said that I felt very embarrassed and I felt like you weren’t talking about the dance. But if I misunderstood, then I apologize. I’m a very positive person, I don’t like to argue or bicker or make things weird,” Rose said during the live show after her week four performance with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. 

The judge stood up and clapped for Rose, then gave her own comments on the situation. 

“I would like to say one thing also. The thing that I love so much about dance is that dance is a universal platform for people to express themselves – any person. Whether that is age or height, body shape, ethnicity, sexual orientation. It is something that people can express themselves to do,” Hough clarified.

“And for me, I am a huge supporter of that and that alone," she added. "As a judge on this show, I am here to solely judge you and everyone else in this competition for only the dancing. So I want you to know that.”
