‘Dancing’ star Derek Hough is now an author
"Going back to Utah definitely has so much sentimental value," Hough said. "That is like home to me, I suppose. But London is as well. I feel very safe there. Comfortable. Very nostalgic.
"It’s weird because I’m trying to make Los Angeles my home right now because I’ve been here for the last six or seven years."
No matter where he goes, fans are there to greet him.
"They do a double-take, and then they run up to me," Hough said. "They feel like they know me.
"Sometimes they grab me or hug me and catch me by surprise. And scare me," he said with a laugh. "But it’s always out of love. It’s always wonderful and positive. I try to embrace it."
