JU­LIANNE Hough was fi­nally ready to bare all — in more ways than one. Pos­ing naked on the Septem­ber cover of Women’s Health, the dancer and ac­tress, 31, who’s mar­ried to Cana­dian hockey pro Brooks Laich, re­vealed in an in­ter­view that she’s bi­sex­ual. Ju­lianne said she’s been on a “trans­for­ma­tional jour­ney” that started a few months af­ter ty­ing the knot in July 2017, and that dis­clos­ing the shock­ing news to her hus­band wasn’t easy. “I [told him], ‘You know I’m not straight, right?’And he was like, ‘I’m sorry, what?’ I was like, ‘I’m not. But I choose to be with you.” Ju­lianne’s been open­ing up a lot lately. In June, the Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent judge dis­closed that she’s been strug­gling with en­dometrio­sis and that she and Brooks, 36, be­gan IFV treat­ments last year in the hopes of con­ceiv­ing. On his “How Men Think” pod­cast on July 8, she let spill that they con­sulted an on­line sex­ol­o­gist to come up with an “erotic blue­print” and forge a more in­ti­mate con­nec­tion. De­spite her trep­i­da­tion, Ju­lianne’s shock­ing rev­e­la­tion has brought her and Brooks even closer. “I was like, ‘Is he go­ing to love this ver­sion of me?’ But the more I dropped into my most au­then­tic self, the more at­tracted he was to me,” she said. “There’s a safety with my hus­band now that I’m un­pack­ing all of this, and there’s no fear of voic­ing things that I’ve been afraid to ad­mit or that I’ve had shame or guilt about.”
