Derek Hough and Mark Ballas: Leaving Dancing with the Stars?

by at . Comments

Male viewership for season nine of Dancing with the Stars will likely suffer, as Julianne Hough has announced she won't be participating in it.

Now, the female demographic is taking a big hit, as a pair of professional stud muffins aren't sure about their status for next season, either.

Earlier this week, Derek Hough told E! News that he and Mark Ballas might take a break from dancing in order to focus on music.

"Mark and I might not be back, either," Derek said. "We have other things going on."

Might The Ballas Hough Band take two pros away from Dancing with the Stars?

The Ballas Hough Band, which features the pair, released its debut album, BHB, in March and "there’s a bunch of stuff on the table right now," Hough added, "We're going on tour this summer."

While Hough wouldn't give a final answer regarding his season nine status, he simple said:

"We've got to see what happens... it would be crazy, all three of us... leaving at the same time."
