Julianne Hough won’t return for Dancing with the Stars 10

Julianne Hough won’t return for Dancing with the Stars 10 next season after skipping season nine, which means her second attempt at quitting seems to have stuck.

This morning, she was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, and said she’s currently working on the Cher and Christina Aguilera film Burlesque, which she’ll follow with Footloose, and she’s also still working on her music.

Julianne told Seacrest–who literally said to her, “I was Binging you” (Ryan, you shameless whore)–that she won’t be back. “No, not next season.” As to season 11, she said, “We’re going to cross that bridge when we get to it,” although she qualified that by saying “I love the show.”

So much that you’re no longer on it.
