Amber Rose and Julianne Hough are ready to talk things out.

Less than a week after the Dancing With the Stars contestant admitted to feeling body shamed by her fellow judge, the pair decided to address the headlines together on Monday's all-new episode.

"When you said ['I feel a little uncomfortable'], I felt very embarrassed. And I felt like you weren't talking about my dance. But if I misunderstood, then I apologize," Amber shared after performing her latest routine with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "And I'm a very positive person. I don't like to argue or bicker or make things weird."

She added, "So, moving forward, I just want complete positive energy and just to have fun."

Before delivering her review of tonight's number, Julianne took a moment to address Amber's perspective face-to-face.

"I would like to say one thing, also. The thing I love so much about dance is that it's a universal platform for people to express themselves. Any person—whether that is age, height, body shape, ethnicity or sexual orientation—it is something that people can express themselves to do," she shared.  "And for me, I am a huge supporter of that and that alone and as a judge, I'm here to solely judge you and everyone in this competition for only the dancing. I want you to know that."

Amber then thanked the judges and expressed her appreciation before getting a score of 24 out of 30. An eyewitness also shared with E! News that during a commercial break, the pair hugged it out and had a "very cute moment." 

In the most recent episode of's Loveline With Amber Rose podcast, Amber first admitted that she felt "body shamed" after hearing Julianne's comments.

"You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on Dancing With the Stars, I mean they dress very sexy and they do the splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and get a standing ovation," she told her co-host Dr. Chris Donaghue. "And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable."

Julianne would later address the comments in an exclusive statement to E! News.

"My ‘uncomfortable' comment was about the fact that I felt like I wanted more out of the performance—when someone is doing a hot, sexy dance like that without the right amount of energy that is required, it can be uncomfortable to watch," she shared. "Trust me I'm ALL for a sexy booty dance!! We all know that!!  And any kind of body shaming goes against everything I believe in."

Dancing With the Stars airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. only on ABC.
