Less than a week after undergoing surgery for endometriosis, Julianne Hough wants to return to Dancing with the Stars. The beauty told People Magazine that “[I'm] feeling phenomenal. I am still walking slow but I’m feeling good.”

Hough's doctor has said his patient needs about another week of rest, however, which at least means more time in bed with Chuck Wicks.

The country singer is Julianne's lucky boyfriend and she said he “got to see me at my lowest point. You can really tell when someone loves you because they mean it. They are not just taking care of you because you need it, they WANT to take care of you. He’s a sweetheart.”

Sambaing

Seen here with Julianne Hough, partner Cody Linley says he misses her so much and that "she's my best friend."

Meanwhile, as Hough recuperates and plans her comeback, Susan Lucci bid the show farewell last night. She was eliminated from the competition.

“I feel so much gratitude for the opportunity to have this particular experience in my lifetime," said the All My Children actress. "I want to thank all you wonderful audience members here, the fans…and most importantly i need to thank this dancer, this incredible teacher, this incredible man, Tony Dovolani.”

The Perfect Pair

With Derek Hough and Brooke Burke dominating Dancing with the Stars, a lack of suspense has been a problem on season seven of the show.

Julianne Hough has an ovarian cyst and a malfunctioning appendix.

Still, the gorgeous dancer teamed up last night with Cody Linley to perform a very sexy Samba.

Unfortunately, the judges didn't think it was an impressive routine, saddling the tandem with a score of 23. Did they deserve better? Watch the performance below and let us know:

Favorite Brooke Burke continued to impress the judges, while Warren Sapp cemented his status as the season's top entertainer and Lance Bass rebounded strongly after an off-week - with a little help from two of his former *NSync-mates.

Is Season Seven of Dancing with the Stars plagued by some kind of curse?

According to new reports, the amazing Julianne Hough will announce tomorrow that the ailment that landed her to the emergency room last week was more than a stomach ache, as was initially stated - it's an ovarian cyst.

The blonde stunner is going to have surgery to remove the cyst and she will have her appendix taken out at the same time (for reasons unrelated to the cyst).

No word on when the surgery will take place or if Julianne Hough will return to Dancing with the Stars - the cast members of which are dropping like flies.

HOUGH ENOUGH: Already one of the world's best dancers, the 20-year-old Utah native has already won two DWTS titles and is seeking a third with Cody Linley (above).

Here's wishing her a speedy recovery, in any case. We heart you, Jules!

Dancing With the Stars' Cheryl Burke is a fine-looking woman.

She's also an athletic woman - making her living as a dancer. So you can imagine her reaction to recent critics who claim she's gotten fat.

"I was like, maybe I should just starve myself for four weeks just so people would shut up," she said on Friday's Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"But at the end of the day ... I'm an athlete. I like to eat, I like to work out, and I like to feel healthy, and I feel healthy."


Cheryl Burke is hot. But Earlier this week, Dancing with the Stars Season Six contestant Louis Van Amstel - and dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy - both spoke out, negatively, about her weight gain as well as that of newcomer Lacey Schwimmer.

"Criticizing a woman's weight ... is just a wrong statement to make ... for women, and it's dangerous," Cheryl Burke said.

"You don't have to be a size zero to be beautiful," she added. "In the world that I live in right now, you don't have to be skin and bones. You can be healthy and beautiful, and you need to accept that about yourself and feel secure about it."

When Burke admitted that she is a "size four in a dress," DeGeneres praised her: "That is a normal body and that's what most people - if they're lucky - look like. I think most people would probably trade you for that body."

Both Cheryl Burke and Lacey Schwimmer are still alive on this season of Dancing with the Stars.

Still, former co-star and professional dancer Louis van Amstel says the two women are too fat for the competition. Seriously!

"If you want to gain weight, it's your prerogative," van Amstel says in the newest issue of TV Guide. "[People] look at this show to be inspired and think, 'If I just work hard enough, I can look like that...' If they watch someone who's dancing her butt off and she's still heavy, they can be discouraged. You have to take responsibility."

Wow. How do you really feel, Louis?

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is equally critical of Burke and Schwimmer.

"When I first saw these women this season, I said, 'Guys, you know the camera adds 10 pounds,'" he said. "'You have to do something about this."

Toni Braxton and Alec Mazo were eliminated last night on Dancing with the Stars. But that wasn't the biggest news of the evening.

Less than an hour after the results episode aired, Julianne Hough was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

The beauty "was experiencing slight stomach pains all day that increased and the doctors thought it was best to have them checked out," said her representative, Cindy Guagenti.

In Costume

Hough - seen above in costume, during her Jitterbug with partner Cody Linley Monday night - showed no signs of pain during the broadcast; her and Linley performed an encore of the routine above, which earned them 28 points the previous evening.

We wish Julianne a speedy recovery. If she needs her stomach, or any other body part, rubbed, she has our number.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
