100 Days of Jules, Day 5: Something Happened in Jules’ Childhood and She Won’t Spell It Out

Just spit it out, Julianne.

Here is where I attempt to blog about Julianne Hough for 100 days straight. This was inspired by Allie Jones’ 500 blogs on Kristin Cavallari, a much funnier read.

If you’ve kept up with Julianne Hough as much as I have (you haven’t), then you know something happened in her childhood. I know this because she alludes to it often, yet never comes out and says it. This is frustrating for me, do you understand?

In this hourlong interview that yes, I did watch, Jules tells the beefy host that when she moved to London when she was 10, Mark Ballas’ mother and father trained her and her brother, Derek Hough, in ballroom dancing. Something bad happened, but she doesn’t say what. She does say that she has talked to all parties involved since then, but we don’t know why.

“I would go through things that maybe were not a good thing. Things that maybe weren’t necessarily the best for a 13-year-old at the time,” she says.


“Obviously now, like, I see some things that should have shifted and shouldn’t have happened, but I now see the benefits of them.”


In 2014, Jules told Cosmo magazine that while in London, she was abused “mentally, physically, everything.”

This is all confusing, considering she says she understands the “benefits” of the abuse?
