ABC's hit reality show, 'Dancing with the Stars' is on season 27 now, but a while ago - precisely three years ago - back in season 20, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' daughter, Rumer Willis was a contestant on the show. It's a little-known fact now, but Rumer and her then pro-partner on the show, Val Chmerkovskiy had won the coveted Mirrorball trophy that year with their stellar performances. Fast forward to the wee stages of this year, Rumer made headlines once again with regards to the show, when she got her DWTS tattoo removed, back in January.

Rumer was 'heartbroken' at the time, upon learning that the man she was so smitten with - Val - was already moving on. Especially considering she had gotten the tattoo of the two of them dancing, on her bicep, in honor of him and the show, in the first place. And by the looks of it, towards the end of the year, Rumer herself had moved on quite a bit from the show. But she still roots for them all, as she spilled in an exclusive interview with Meaww.

As she attended the AMFAR gala 2018 - with other familiar faces and big names in the entertainment industry, like Sarah Hyland and Gigi Hadid - to make history, we asked Rumer who she's rooting for on this season of 'Dancing with the Stars'. Rumer also had a few insights to share about the show's debut season of the juniors' version that premiered just three weeks ago as well.

"Oh my gosh, I'm so bad, I haven't even watched this season," Rumer confessed, smiling. She defended herself saying, "I've been really busy!" before continuing: "But I actually really love that they are doing juniors and giving kids a chance, which I think is really fun. But, you know - it's a great show, and I'm kind of always there... [sic] with a great group of my friends, so I'm always rooting for everybody."

 

 

Rumer and Val's 'romance' was never really reported officially, but sources had revealed to several outlets that she was so infatuated with the Ukraine-born DWTS pro, that she had got the tattoo of the two of them dancing, right after winning the Mirrorball. At the time, Rumer had posted a snap of the tattoo on her Instagram, writing: "Thank you @dr_woo_ssc for this beautiful art. I got this as a reminder that what we are searching for can only be found within yourself….not from your job, how much money you make, who your dating, how many followers you have.”

Sadly, things didn't last long between the two, and in November of 2017, Rumer got her tattoo removed. Following that, Val had been involved in a short-lived romance with Amber Rose that didn't reportedly impact Rumer as much, but ever since he started dating fellow DWTS-pro, Jenna Johnson, it put out Rumer completely. That would explain the tattoo removal, but we're thrilled Rumer is keeping busy!
