Dancing With the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff is a huge fan of her longtime competitor and colleague Julianne Hough, but she's not sure about her DWTS return.
She's the first to openly pose the question of whether it's ethical for Julianne to judge her brother Derek, who is still a competing pro dancer this fall.
"I think she is a great girl, I've known her for many years," Smirnoff said.
"I think that she is wonderful, gorgeous, and talented," she adds of Hough, "but I don't know if it's ethical that she is judging while her brother is competing."
Julianne Hough is returning to Dancing With the Stars this fall after appearing as a dancer and winning two titles in the show's earlier ABC seasons.
She joins Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli.
