Another 'Dancing With the Stars' Romance
Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough have been clicking off stage
Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough still haven't spoken about their romance, but it's now common knowledge.
Thanks to photos that surfaced on April 17, the couple put on a show of non-professional love when they were caught kissing on the beach in Malibu.
Although their dance floor chemistry was apparent, the couple has let their off-stage emotions leak at times. On Tuesday's (April 22) result show, after one commercial break, Hough was seen with lipstick marks all over his head and face.
When Elizabeth began the season, she was dating an eighth-grade math teacher. She was previously married to actor Joseph D. Reitman. They separated in 2005.
Elizabeth is 34, while Hough is 12 years her junior at 22.
"Dancing With the Stars" has spawned at least two other known off-stage romances: Karina Smirnoff and Mario Lopez in the third season and Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas in the fifth season.
