"Dancing with the Stars" will lose one of its pros this week as Julianne Hough gets set for surgery to remove her appendix.
E! Online is reporting that the "Dancing" champ will have a minor procedure on Tuesday to have her appendix removed. This news comes after Hough made an emergency trip to the hospital last Tuesday complaining of stomach pains following a taping of the show. The source tells E! News Hough could return to Dancing as early as next week.
The insider also confirmed to E! News that despite the pending procedure, Hough will be dancing on tonight's show. Producers plan to reveal the news on the broadcast and explain that after this evening's performance, Hough's partner, Cody Linley, will be paired with another pro from the show until Hough feels well enough to return. www.eonline.com
