Derek Hough Calls Nastia Liukin An Amazing Friend After DWTS Elimination - Re-Watch All Their Dances Here!
The 26-year-old athlete’s pro partner Derek Hough wrote about going up and ending up in fourth place on the 20th season in his newest TVGuide blog.
Derek also opened up about the duo’s partnership: “I think the thing I’m most disappointed in is that I don’t think people truly saw what Nastia and our relationship were like. We did have a great heart-to-heart last week, but we’ve always been close. Out of all my partners, Nastia has always been the most affectionate toward me. I’m not even exaggerating.”
He added, “She’s an amazing friend — and nurse! She was always asking me if I needed ice. She was constantly giving me water. She played nurse on top of juggling two partners. It’s those moments, that tenderness and heart — there was so more beauty to show, but they went for the cheap shot. I feel bad for that. But it is what it is. You can’t control it.”
