Helio and Julianne will appear on Dancing tour; Julianne repeats relationship denials

Dancing with the Stars 5 winner Helio Castroneves and his partner Julianne Hough will join the show’s tour, but only for select, as-yet-unnanounced dates.

“Helio saw that everybody wanted to do the tour and didn’t want to be left out. I had a blast doing the last tour and if we could pop in there and do a few dates, that would be great,” Julianne told TV Guide.

Both Helio and Julianne have projects they’re working on; he’s practicing for the upcoming racing season, and she’s recording an album in Nashville. Thus, they’ll only make limited appearances. “Hough says it looks like they’ll perform in Indianapolis (Jan. 18), Nashville (Jan. 19), and Greensboro, North Carolina (Jan. 26.).”

Meanwhile, Julianne says that rumors she and Helio are together are inaccurate. “I know the rumors aren’t true so I’m fine with it. But I feel bad for everybody involved. I feel bad for Helio. I had the same thing happen when I was with Apolo (and broke off her own engagement), so I totally understand,” she said.
