Amber Rose is putting the Dancing With the Stars drama behind her. Amber and judge Julianne Hough addressed the body shaming controversy during the Monday, Oct. 3 episode. The drama has been swirling around the two since last week's DWTS episode.

Amber and professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the Argentine tango to "Tickle Tango" by Simon Carpentier and received a 24 out of 30, all eights from judges Julianne Hough, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

"I feel wonderful. It's been a really great week for me, so I feel really good," Amber told E! News.

She spoke to the judging panel first about the body shaming issue. "I just kind wanted to clear the air that it wasn't anything negative. I felt very embarrassed, I felt very angry, I felt like I was shamed last week," Amber told us. "[Julianne Hough] said it wasn't like that, she was only speaking on my dance alone. I take her word for it. I believe it. We just cleared the air. It's just all positive energy for here on."


During the show, Julianne Hough said, "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. 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."

Maks said he's glad everything was cleared up. "I like this show to be positive and celebrate positivity. I was part of dramatic moments in the past and we talked about this, I was like, ‘It never looks good watching it back.' Something drops in the energy during the flow of the show," he said.

There's a double elimination in the Tuesday, Oct. 4 episode and Amber admitted she's nervous.

"I'm always nervous. I'm having the time of my life here. I met a life-long friend in Maks…I don't want it to end. I'm glad that I did well, I'm not as nervous as I was the past two weeks, but you never know," she said.
