Professional dancer/actress/singer/girlfriend hasn't been on the show that made her a household name, Dancing with the Stars, since season 8 when she was partnered with her then boyfriend Chuck Wicks. But that may be about to change.
Yesterday morning, Julianne's current main squeeze, Ryan Seacrest, interviewed Julianne's brother, DWTS pro Derek Hough, and his current dancing partner Ricki Lake. During the interview Ricki turned interviewer and asked Ryan if he would ever head over to watch the show himself.
Ryan said, "Well, I think I'm coming because another Hough I think is coming on. I think she's coming back. So I think I'm coming back for that night."
"I heard that," Ricki said. "I heard a rumor about that."
With Footloose coming to theaters October 14th, I imagine she'll be stopping in a lot of places to promote the flick, and it seems only natural that she'd make a stop at DWTS to show a few of her Footloose dance moves.
And on a side note, if you find that you're a fan of the clothing, boots, makeup, etc. that you've seen in promos for the movie, Home Shopping Network is going to be offering a bunch of goodies from the movie for consumers to buy.

I'm sure you've heard about the Demand It! contest where the city with the most votes, or demands, will win a free concert from Alan Jackson.
Unfortunately, free doesn't always mean free, which is the case with Alan's show, and that's causing a bit of worry with the town that's currently in the lead to bring Alan to their neck of the woods.
Mineral, Virginia is an itty bitty town that was hit hard by August 23rd's 5.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Washington, DC and the surrounding area. Despite only having a population of 400, Mineral is in the lead to bring Alan Jackson to their area.
They have, as of this moment, 29,869 demands. The next closest city is Kansas with only 8,032 demands. A pretty damn impressive lead if you ask me. With the contest ending October 10, it's more than likely that Mineral will win the whole kit and kaboodle.
Now comes the problem. There's a contest disclaimer that says the winning community must meet Jackson's production requirements and find a venue that can hold 1,000 to 3,000 people.
Kind of tough to do in a town of 400 that's still trying to clean up after a very rare earthquake.
But townsfolk are upbeat about the possibility of having to pay for a "free" Alan Jackson contest and are preparing for the likelihood that they'll win.
"We don't have any areas big enough to accommodate the number of people expected. So, it's a lot of thought we're going to have to put into it," said Mineral Mayor Pamela Harlowe.
"I think the community itself would come together and put it together and volunteer and donate," added Karla Harrison, who lives in Mineral.
Well if all of those 29,869 people who did the wonderful deed of Demanding Alan Jackson for Mineral sent in a dollar, costs would probably be covered quite well with some to spare.
Or maybe Alan Jackson will get wind of the situation and turn this Demand concert into a truly free show for the town and maybe even raise some money to help them recover.
If you'd like to Demand Alan for your town....or donate your Demand to Mineral....just head over to Eventful. Contest ends 10/10/11.
Personally it kind of makes me want to chuckle, but what do I know of high-end men's wear?
You can check out some more of Gary Allan's new store The Label's items for sale by following them on their Facebook page.
I do have to say that I love the pelt on the ground behind Gary Allan. Makes me want to sing a little Tanya Tucker - pink suit be damned.....
Shoot, sorry guys. I had done a review of Justin Haigh's new album "People Like Me" last week and mentioned that I had a contest to run and then went and completely forgot it.
Well better late than never I always say. So here you go - I have five copies of Justin's new album to give away to five lucky folks.
All you have to do is email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know you want to be entered. I will draw all five winners' names on Monday.
It makes it easier if you include an address in your entry, but it's not necessary.
Well the Footloose soundtrack has finally hit stores and so now you can head over to Amazon to check out snippets of all the songs.
I did just that and found out that besides Blake Shelton's version of Footloose, there's also a JaneDear Girls version.
It makes me wonder if this was maybe the movie makers' first choice as Blake has said that when he was first approached to record a song for the movie he was asked to do a different song but he said no, it was Footloose or nothing.
"When they approached me about it, they asked me about doing another song, but I told them I wanted to do 'Footloose' or I wasn't going to be part of the soundtrack," he said.
Kind of interesting to hear a lady's version and a man's version. Check out bits and pieces of all the songs here.

Lauren Alaina doesn't have a driver's license yet and isn't very adept at driving a stick shift, but that doesn't mean she wasn't totally excited to pick up her brand spankin' new bright red convertible 2011 Ford Mustang Shelby GT - one of her prizes for coming in second on "American Idol".
Last Friday, Lauren stopped by Brooker Ford in Dalton, Georgia to pick up her prize, stating, “This car is bad,” before excitedly opening the door and climbing inside.
Unfortunately for Lauren, her mom got to drive the car first as they drove off the lot as Lauren said, “I don’t even have my license yet .… I can’t drive much of anything.”
Well nothing like a little motivation to hurry up and get your official driver's license.
