The blonde professional dancer, who this season has been partnered with former “Hannah Montana” star Cody Linley, was taken to the hospital after experiencing abdominal pains, a rep for Julianne confirmed to Access Hollywood.

“She was experiencing slight stomach pains all day that increased and the doctors thought it was best to have them checked out,” the rep told Access.
However, contrary to a report on the internet, Julianne did not collapse, the rep noted.
Sources on the set saw Julianne’s brother and fellow pro dancer, Derek Hough, run off shortly after the broadcast, following a private conversation with a member of the “DWTS” crew.
Her celebrity partner, Cody, took press questions on his own following the show, which saw singer Toni Braxton eliminated. The actor, however, did not indicate that Julianne had been rushed to hospital, and it was unclear if he was aware of the news.
