“Kickin' ass and takin' names. Back stage w the Houghs.

The Vampire Diaries actress seemed so happy to be there, not only sharing an Instagram video of Julianna singing her heart out on stage, but also behind-the-scenes vids of the siblings rehearsing with their troup. Nina is good friends with both Julianne and Derek, the latter of whom she briefly dated last year. Nina even spent Christmas with the Hough family, taking part in their epic Instagram dance-off with the Ballas family and some epic snowboarding adventures. We love this friendship! Now, if we can only get Derek and/or Julianne to guest star on TVD. The vampire drama could use a bit more dancing, don’t you think?
