Julianne Hough won’t be Dancing with the Stars for at least two weeks.

The partner of Cody Linley, and the star in fantasies of men everywhere, has blogged about the medical procedure that will rob Dancing with the Stars of its best-looking contestant:

Last week was more than just a tummy ache. It turned out I ruptured a cyst that was on my ovary. I didn’t know but I have endometriosis. I’ve apparently had it for a long time because I’ve had this pain for about the last five years. It hasn’t been as bad. Up till last week, I let it go and I was always too busy to get it checked out.

“Last week my management and the other people around me were trying to think of something else I could say that was wrong with me, but I was like, don’t worry. I want to be a good role model. I want to be honest. Maybe some girl out there won’t wait too long like I did. I’m just glad I’m taking care of it now because I want to have babies some day.”
