Dancing with the Stars has always been a part of my family,” Julianne said. “That’s where it all began for me, so it just kind of made sense.”

When asked whether she would be biased against her brother Derek, she said, “I think that’s a very valid question. It’s going to be how it was when I guest-judged. It’s not necessarily about Derek and the pro dancer, it’s about the collaboration, the team effort, and what they’re doing as a partnership, and really the celebrity can do to improve each week.”

FYI: Julianne is wearing a Olcay Gulsen top and skirt, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Foley + Corinna bag, and Sydney Evan necklace.

Julianne Hough to 'Redbook': There Was 'Nothing Right' in Past Romantic Relationships

Julianne Hough dances around in Alberta Ferretti on the cover of Redbook magazine’s August 2014 issue, on newsstands July 8.

Here’s what the 25-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On her relationship with Brooks Laich vs. past relationships: “Every relationship, there was nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right. I had one foot out because I didn’t want to get hurt. And I didn’t say what was on my mind because I didn’t want to ruffle any feathers. I needed to be perfect. Now I’m not holding anything back because I’d rather get my heart broken than never know what it is to be completely, madly in love. If I had been this open in my last relationship, who knows?”

On what changed her outlook on relationships: “I had this epiphany when my family went to a six-day seminar [last November] about creating your own destiny. I was not into it at first, but I learned so much about myself and why my relationships didn’t work that by the end I was on a high. I was seeing a couple people, but immediately [pretends to text guys], ‘You are nice, but this is going nowhere.’ The next day my Curve co-star introduced [Brooks and me]. It couldn’t have been a better time. We’ve been open and honest from day one.”

The negative experiences she had when she was younger: “I bullied in high school big-time. I had just come back from London (where she trained with professional ballroom dancers) and was the new kid. People looked at me like, she thinks she’s all that. And because I didn’t know how to talk to them, maybe I did come across that way? I don’t know. I got asked to prom by a guy, and he ended up ditching me that day because the girls had told him to do it.”
