Country singer Kellie Pickler and her professional dance partner Derek Hough emerged victorious on this past season of Dancing With The Stars. If you’ve missed the two-hour season finale of the show, you can get caught up with our recap of the episode.
After all of the glitz and glamour of winning is gone, we’ve learned that Derek might just be jumping ship from the hit dancing competition. This is the fourth mirror ball trophy that he’s won since becoming famous on the show. Perhaps it’s his time to pursue his other interests?
A source said, “Derek has always wanted to eventually get back to the stage or other kinds of TV projects and even films. I know he’s had lots of offers. This seems like the right time for him to pursue all that.”
In related news, we’ve learned that the powers that be at ABC are cutting the dance show down to just one episode per week. Is it time for Derek to exit the ballroom floor? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!
