Don't go burning bridges now, Jules!
Julianne and Derek Hough are without a doubt the two biggest successes out of Dancing with the Stars, but the brother and sister pair surprisingly both dropped from the show for its current 22nd outing.
Derek decided to quit the ABC reality show after winning for his sixth time last season, but Julianne's move was even more shocking as she was the fourth judge on the panel for three years!

Well, it sounds like the 27-year-old Grease: Live actress is content with her choice to waltz off the show, because she's already excited about new opportunities, saying:
"I will miss being on the panel, but have a lot of exciting stuff coming that I look forward to sharing. The pro dancers, producers, and crew at DWTS will always be my family.
It's nice now because I can actually have favorites. I watched the premiere, and I was super-rooting for Wanya [Morris] because he did Grease: Live with us.
I'm really excited because I'm focusing on some other things. I'm at that point in my career where I need to focus on my personal career and make sure I'm doing what I'm doing."
Also, we can see how judging your brother every week would get awkward…
Plus, now she can watch tonight's elimination without feeling guilty! LOLz!
Do U miss Julianne's presence on DWTS??
