Derek Hough rumbled with his current partner Brooke Burke on last night's Dancing with the Stars, but on the home front things are better than ever for the pro and his former Dancing partner Shannon Elizabeth.

"Mark and I have an apartment, and I'm supposed to be living there," Hough told PEOPLE, "but I live with Shannon at her house, and our three Almost Amy bandmates live with Shannon and I."

The actress' Hollywood Hills home may have turned into a temporary crash pad for Hough and pal Mark Ballas's band, but it seems Elizabeth wouldn't have it any other way. "She was like, 'They can stay here until they find a new place,'" said Hough. "And, once they started talking about finding a new place, Shannon and I were like, 'Wait, we're going to miss them when they go.' And we were like, 'Why don't you just stay here? We'll make rooms up for everyone.'"



In fact, Elizabeth has gone out of her way to make the band feel at home. "Shannon's rooms are so cluttered, but she's actually been de-junking all of her rooms so that each of them can have their own room," he said.

Hough admitted living with his girlfriend, three band mates and four dogs is "kind of crazy," but if he needs his "own space" there always the apartment he still shares with Ballas. But there hasn't been that need: "Shannon's just been really, really helpful at giving us all our own space. She's just been so great," he said. --Reagan Alexander
