Mark Ballas: Julianne Hough "Hypocritical" in DWTS Critique

by at .

Childhood friends Mark Ballas and Julianne Hough may be in a little bit of a tiff after last night's Dancing With the Stars, in which she guest judged.

After performing as a dance pro for five seasons, Julianne filled in for Len Goodman Monday, and weighed in on Ballas' foxtrot with Christina Milian.

"There were moments where I felt like choreography-wise, I felt like it was two people dancing side-by-side rather than together," she said on the show.

"So I really want to see [Milian] shine. I've danced with Mark."

"You have to stand in front to make sure you're seen."

Afterward, Ballas didn't sound too thrilled with that.

"The one comment to me that was a little funny is that I make it all about me... all the critiques were at me, not [Milian]. So I thought that was a little hypocritical," he told Us.

He had plenty of praise for Julianne Hough, however:

"I think she was very insightful and gave great tips on lines and how to express. We've had a lot of guest judges and I thought out of all of them she was one of the best."

"So that, I love," he said of the two-time Dancing With the Stars Mirror Ball champion. I was the one who kind of got the heat, but that's OK! It's fine."

The two go back a long way. She and brother Derek Hough moved to London to train with Ballas' famous parents, dance champions Shirley and Corky Ballas.

Julianne and Mark paired up for the Junior Olympics and both won medals for ballroom dancing. The two of them and Derek all went on to join DWTS.

But Hough claimed she was "mentally and physically abused" while training in London, sparking rumors that she was pointing her finger at the Ballas family.
