Can't they just dance it off? In the Oct. 7 episode of Dancing With the Stars, it was dance pro Mark Ballas who stole the show -- at least that's what former pro and guest judge Julianne Hough claimed.

After Ballas called Hough's post-performance commentary "hypocritical" on the post-show red carpet, insiders tell Us Weekly that the dancer was "furious" with Hough.

"The dancers were all talking about it," our source said. "Mark was so pissed after his routine, he was in silence, just gritting his teeth for a long time. He was so angry. Julianne is like his little sister he grew up with, and for her to make that dig at him...he felt like that was just so uncalled for."

Following Ballas' dance, Hough encouraged his dance partner, singer Christina Milian, to reclaim the spotlight saying, "I've danced with Mark. You have to stand in front to make sure you're seen."

The Ballas family trained Julianne and her brother Derek Hough (who is still a current dance pro on DWTS) as children in London. Hough and Ballas even competed together in the Junior Olympics.

The source also said Derek Hough tried to make light of his sister's comments, but Ballas wasn't having it.

"Mark kind of laughed off the remark when Derek said something to him about it, but you could tell he was just angry and didn't want to talk about it," the source said. "He kind of brushed it off."
