US magazine isn't exactly a pillar of journalistic integrity. I'd take anything they print with an entire month's production of the local Morton's factory.
As for Julianne being a huge star, no, she isn't. Certainly not by Hollywood's standards. But she probably is a bit more recognizable to the general public than Derek, just because of the recent publicity for the remake of Footloose. Also, she's been on a few red carpets and gets E! News coverage because of her relationship with Ryan Seacrest.
I feel for the other pros too I hate see repeated winners it's getting tiresome, I really wish last year Maks won with Kirstie, I reallly never understood all the hype around Hines. Get rid of Ballas and Hough and then you got yourself a fair competition. Unless, the judges will find a way to overpraise another pro, yet again. Well actually get rid of CA and Bruno, then it would be fair.
Something about Derek reminds me of a grown Justin Bieber.

At least Derek and Maks can make fun of their feud (from Mak's twitter).
That's it!Something about Derek reminds me of a grown Justin Bieber.
Sweet. I'm having fun following all the drama, but really, I don't think I care much beyond the entertainment value. They are both doing a good job of keeping their names in th news and that's all they can ask for. Although I don't see big fame in the cards for either Derek or Max. Derek is too quiet and understated. Max is too loud and brash. They are missing that "it" factor that lingers somewhere in the middle.
I was never attracted to any of the daners on this show with the possible exception of Tony. But, Tristan does it for me in a big way!
Max is good for entrtainmet; Derek is good for great choreography.
Something else I'd like to see changed in the future: mixing up the order of when the contestants dance. Rob/Cheryl are reportedly going first tonight. Has Ricki gone towards the front at all this season? It's not just Ricki, J.R. has typically been saved towards the back as well. I get bored with seeing the most overhyped contestants that the show thinks everyone will stay tuned to see going last week after week. Or that it's obvious they're going when they are so the judges can save the 10s for them.
