Allison Holker Wants Julianne Hough Back on 'DWTS' >>

At this point it seems like fans of Dancing with the Stars have been told more about who won't be on Season 22 than who will. According to the latest gossip news updates, a very pregnant Allison Hooker recently announced that, like Julianne Hough, she too will not be able to be a part of the TV show's 2016 cast. Although she would like to get back in top fighting shape in time for the March 21, premiere date, Holker believes it's far more likely she'll be spending that day giving birth in a hospital delivery room. As sad as not being able to compete this year has Allison, she is said to be just as upset that Hough won't be judging in 2016, after doing such a great job last year.
