A day after singing and dancing the night away on NBC’s Christmas At Rockefeller Center on Wednesday night, siblings Julianne and Derek Hough returned home to Los Angeles.

Julianne, 31, and Derek, 34, were all smiles while arriving at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday.

Their arrival also comes after Julianne carefully addressed the dismissal of both her and Gabrielle Union on America’s Got Talent on the Today Show, praising Union for, ‘speaking her truth.’

‘We need to start conversations and I just commend Gabrielle for speaking her truth and starting a conversation,’ Hough began.

‘I’m really proud of NBC as well for also showing up and starting a narrative and that’s what’s going to change the work place and the paradigm that we’ve been working in for many many years and is shifting and I think that’s really exciting,’ she added.

Union revealed on Wednesday that she had a ‘5-hour productive meeting’ with NBC executives, where she spoke her ‘unfiltered truth.’

The initial report from Variety last week claimed both Hough and Union were let go from their contracts after just one season, and after they complained about racist jokes and a toxic work environment.

‘I would just say that…my goodness. I just believe and value, at the highest regard, that everybody has a voice and should be heard, first and foremost,’ Hough said. 

Just days after the initial report surfaced, both the Hough’s appeared on NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center special.

They’re also getting ready for their holiday special Holidays With the Houghs, which airs Monday, December 16 at 10pm ET/PT on NBC.
