Garth: No romance between Helio, Hough

By

NEW YORK, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Jennie Garth says Helio Castroneves, her fellow contestant on the U.S. competition series "Dancing with the Stars," broke up with his fiancee months ago.

Castroneves Wednesday confirmed that he and Aliette Vazquez, the business executive he dated for six years, had broken up.

News of the split came one day after the race-car driver and his professional dance partner Julianne Hough were declared the winners of "Dancing with the Stars."

"Well, actually, that is something that happened a long time ago. It was even something that started before the show premiered," Garth told TV's "Inside Edition. "It's not true the rumor that he just broke it off and it's because of Julianne."

Garth emphasized there was no romance between Castroneves and Hough, who is 19.

"There was no romance going on between Helio and Julianne whatsoever," Garth said. "For everyone to say that now makes me laugh."

So, what about the pair's on-air smooch?

"It was part of the routine that kiss and it was hilarious. We were like, 'Eew, he's kissing her.' It was not a big deal. They planned that out," she said. "When Julianne Hough dances, she can have chemistry with a broomstick."
