A day after singing and dancing the night away on NBC’s Christmas At Rockefeller Center on Wednesday night, siblings Julianne and Derek Hough returned home to Los Angeles.

Julianne, 31, and Derek, 34, were all smiles while arriving at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday, when Julianne spoke about Gabrielle Union ‘speaking her truth’ about being ousted from America’s Got Talent.

‘I keep saying it, it’s all about encoded energy, so if it comes with authenticity and integrity from all sides of things… I don’t mean sides, but from all places, that’s when change happens,’ Julianne said at LAX.

Their arrival also comes after Julianne carefully addressed the dismissal of both her and Gabrielle Union on America’s Got Talent on the Today Show, praising Union for, ‘speaking her truth.’

‘I think this a huge opportunity for people to step into this new shift that’s happening, and it’s awesome,’ Hough added.

When Hough was asked if NBC should offer Union her job back on America’s Got Talent, the blonde beauty laughed and said, ‘I’m not gonna comment on that.’

She was then asked about Howard Stern’s comments that America’s Got Talent has become, ‘a boys club,’ Hough refused to comment any further.

Huge opportunity: 'I think this a huge opportunity for people to step into this new shift that's happening, and it's awesome,' Hough added

‘I’m good now, with that, thank you. I feel like I’ve said what I wanted to say. There’s still lots happening and it’s all unfolding and I’m doing my thing privately, so there’s a lot happening,’ Hough added.

When asked what Hough’s message to Union would be at this point, she said, ‘I’m just super proud of her for being consistent in her beliefs and for always following her truth.   

‘I’ve known her now throughout this whole show and she’s very strong in who she is and talented so I’m just really proud of her,’ Hough added.

She's good: When asked if she enjoyed her time on the show, Hough just said, 'I'm good,' and walked to her vehicle

Julianne was clad in black, wearing a black coat, black wide-legged pants with brown heeled boots as she arrived back to Los Angeles.

She was also seen holding her cell phone while a large black leather bag was dangling from her forearm.

Her brother Derek was wearing a plain white t-shirt, a dark blue coat with a brown fur collar lining and black pants and shoes, with a black bag draped over his shoulder.

Earlier on both the Hough siblings appeared on The Today Show, where Julianne commended her former co-star Union, but also appeared to commend NBC as well. 

‘We need to start conversations and I just commend Gabrielle for speaking her truth and starting a conversation,’ Hough began.

‘I’m really proud of NBC as well for also showing up and starting a narrative and that’s what’s going to change the work place and the paradigm that we’ve been working in for many many years and is shifting and I think that’s really exciting,’ she added.

Union revealed on Wednesday that she had a ‘5-hour productive meeting’ with NBC executives, where she spoke her ‘unfiltered truth.’

The initial report from Variety last week claimed both Hough and Union were let go from their contracts after just one season, and after they complained about racist jokes and a toxic work environment.

Hough also spoke with People Now, where, when asked about Union’s dismissal, seemed to dance around the topic.

‘I would just say that…my goodness. I just believe and value, at the highest regard, that everybody has a voice and should be heard, first and foremost,’ Hough said. 

Just days after the initial report surfaced, both the Hough’s appeared on NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center special.

They’re also getting ready for their holiday special Holidays With the Houghs, which airs Monday, December 16 at 10pm ET/PT on NBC.
