Romance rumors are rampant on the set of “Dancing with the Stars” — and it looks like one is true. Dance partners Shannon Elizabeth, 34, and Derek Hough, 22, had been playing coy about their blossoming relationship but over the weekend, pictures surfaced of the couple kissing on the beach in Malibu. The two took a seaside stroll for a “Dancing” segment—and they snuck a smooch when cameras stopped rolling. Take a look at the video.
On Monday night’s performance show, co-host Samantha Harris straight up asked the too-pretty pair about the romance, and the grinning couple didn’t deny it. Cupid has previously cast his spell on the dance floor: Last year’s hot couple Cheetah girl Sabrina Bryan and her partner Mark Ballas (this year paired with Untouchable Kristi Yamaguchi) are still going strong, as are Season 3 couple Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff.
