Derek Hough Dances Around Lauren Conrad Dating Rumors
Silly reporters, don’t they know that a three-time Mirror Ball winner like Derek Hough is nimble enough to dance himself out of any awkward question?
When a reporter at E! News asked Derek point-blank about those flirty photos of him hanging out with Lauren Conrad, the sly dancer side-stepped the question like a seasoned pro.
“Did you see a picture of Ricki Lake and I the other day?” Derek asked the reporter with Ricki grinning by his side. “There was a picture of her and I the other day...that’s heavy.”
Derek then grabbed the hand of his celebrity partner as she joked with reporters.
“See how he avoids,” Ricki laughed. Yes, that Hough is a sly one!
While Derek wouldn’t confirm or deny if there was something lovey-dovey going on between him and the former Hills star, Ricki’s giddy reaction is like that of a friend poking fun of her crushin’ pal.
Oddly enough, Lauren is current Season 13 star Kristin Cavllari's former rival who was battling DWTS rumors of her own that she was dating partner Mark Ballas. However, KCav put the rumors to rest when ex-fiance Jay Cutler was spotted cheering her on in the audience on Season 13, Week 3 Performance Show and the pair were later photographed holding hands. There's only room for one DWTS-Hills romance in the ballroom!
