Derek Hough may have won the hearts of millions as a three-time mirrorball champion on “Dancing with the Stars,” but it appears there’s one lady whose heart he hasn’t conquered – Lauren “LC” Conrad.

On Friday, as Access Hollywood visited Ricki Lake and Derek’s “Dancing” rehearsal, to talk about their plans for Monday’s show, and Ricki’s transformation, which was documented in Us Weekly, the talk show host flipped to another page of the magazine – and an article on a rumored romance between Derek and LC.

“What’s the deal with this?” Ricki laughed.

“I don’t read these magazines,” Derek said.

“I think you guys would make a cute couple – if it were true,” Ricki said.

Derek then set the record straight.

“I hate to disappoint,” he told Ricki, shrugging off the report.

Leaderboard toppers Ricki and Derek return to compete in the ballroom on Monday at 8/7 C on “Dancing with the Stars.”
