Ryan Seacrest & Julianne Hough take their heterosexual love to Paris


Of course this isn’t a photo op! WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?!? These are photos of Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest in Paris today, just walking down the Rue d’Hetero, enjoying life. Apparently, Julianne and Ryan are in Paris with Ryan’s parents and his sister, on what is probably a super-awkward visit. Maybe it’s just me. I can’t help it, I think Ryan is faking this relationship in an attempt for mainstream, Middle America acceptance, because he fears that if he comes out, no one will think he’s The Next Dick Clark. Note to Seacrest: no one thinks you are the next Dick Clark anyway, gay or straight. But whatever. Julianne is talking up the relationship and maybe it’s for real. Cough, laugh, sputter.

How romantic! Ryan Seacrest and girlfriend Julianne Hough have jetted off to Paris, and the happy couple have wasted no time seeing the sights and spending quality time together.

On Tuesday, the two, who are also in town with Seacrest’s parents and his sister Meredith, lunched at Chez André and were spotted strolling hand-in-hand through the City of Light. Next on their itinerary? A stop by Dior’s flagship boutique on Avenue Montaigne.

As if the setting wasn’t perfect enough, Hough has gushed that her beau is “really romantic,” telling Ellen DeGeneres that for her birthday he put “flowers everywhere. I was almost embarrassed.”

As for spending time with Seacrest’s parents, Hough told DeGeneres earlier this month, “both of our folks are like our best friends, so when we hang out, it’s more like hanging out with friends.”

Oooh, girl, he took you to Dior! Best boyfriend EVER! Julianne was probably like “Oh, I’ll get mine. I’ll get mine AT DIOR.” Why does this whole thing just sound like a shopping jaunt so Ryan could visit the gay mothership, Chanel?

    He is looking old lately, and she used to be a heck of a lot cuter when she was on DWTS.

  2. Obvious says:

    lol. i still laugh at the fact julianne said that when he first asked her out she said she thought he was gay. i still think she was right. there is nothing wrong with it!

  3. Saor says:

    Love her purple hat and red coat together. I think she looks really lovely apart from the boots and stockings thing going on.

  4. Sarah says:

    1) Who is she??

    2) Ryan looks uncomfortable.

    3) Ryan’s starting to look old.

  5. Meanchick says:

    I’m so over this. Why all of the photo opps? Who are they trying to fool?

  6. Hautie says:

    I never realize how tiny she is… cause Ryan is a small man and he looks so much taller than her.

    I never really thought he was gay. As much as I thought he was a sneaky little shit.

    Whom for whatever reason, Dick Clark decided to put his own power and money behind Ryan’s career.

    And now Ryan is everywhere. In practically every medium. Who would not accept a female unless she could bring him positive PR.

    I could see him being the type of man that demands his girlfriend/wife to be a certain weight. And would weigh her daily to make sure she never gained an ounce.

  7. Hollowdoll says:

    Old news. They’re not fooling anyone.

  8. mln says:

    I think even Idol fans in the deepest backwood corners of America get that he’s gay and it wouldn’t hurt his career at all. Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert need to stage an intervention.

  9. Sakyiwaa says:

    who is Julianne Hough? oh…yeah, i’ll just Google her name.

  10. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    uhhh I kinda thought Ryan Seacreast was the next Dick Clark…and he will be. He is working at it, I mean this man was at one point a co-host on a reality show that could have failed dramatically but it didn’t, and he turned it into a successful career where he owns this and that and hosts this and that, he is on the verge of having a media empire. I am not his biggest fan because of a certain incident, but successful people fascinate me.

    I don’t think Ryan is gay, I think he is the reason why the word metrosexual was invented. I don’t really care about his dating life. Paris is where I wish I was for the Thanksgiving holiday. Fun.

  11. Embee says:

    When I first saw the purple hat/red coat combo I thought, “Wait…isn’t she a little young for that club?” Had it transposed…Red HAT Ladies, not purple hats. Even still, I think it’s pretty apropos, especially in light of the poem…

    “When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
    With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
    And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
    And learn to spit.”

    This is great material for Joel McHale!

  13. LolaBella says:

    Fauxmance…and not at all convincing.

    Love her coat, bag and boots!

  14. bagladey says:


  15. he is an nasty little bitch, he’s a dick for putting Pink & XTina on the same line on the radio when he knew they dislike each other… twat.

  16. Oi says:

    @Embee: that’s what I thought of too! I got it backwards too, but red and purple should just not be done unless that’s the image you want!

  17. lila says:

    her face seems chubby and she isn’t fat… weird I agree she was cuter when she was on DWTS. O and her ex BF is waaaay cuter than ryan

  18. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Yawn! Can we have Hot Guy Wednesday since we are off work on Friday?

  19. PrettyTarheel says:

    I have never thought he was hot, but I couldn’t put my finger on why until now…
    There. I said it. I feel better now.

  20. ohcutemissa says:

    LOVE her coat!!

  21. original kate says:

    “Why does this whole thing just sound like a shopping jaunt so Ryan could visit the gay mothership, Chanel?”

    thank you, kaiser. that’s exactly what i was thinking.

  22. RobN says:

    Maybe it’s the holiday spirit, but I think they look pretty cute.

    He’s a metrosexual and cares how he looks. Nothing wrong with that, and if he were gay there’d be some kind of photo out there with a supposed boyfriend. But there never is, there’s just a bunch of people who think they have gaydar and don’t.

  23. Nanea says:

    Did they bring their own paps, as in BYOB?

    I can’t imagine anyone in Paris knowing who either of them are, unless Bauer-Griffin was warned in advance that their presence at this “romantic stroll” would be required.

  24. Feebee says:

    Forget homo/hetero, beard-whatever, at first glance I thought they were father and daughter.

    With her brown hair and… what’s that anti-acne stuff she was pushing a wee while back? Plus her face looks pleasantly more full since DWTS….. Anyway, she looks about 14 in the photos and I agree he’s looking old(er).

  25. Louise says:

    I’m usually neutral when it comes to Ryan but he looks so annoying and smug in these photographs. I just want to punch him out.

  26. Kim says:

    Is her brother dating Ryan and this is the cover up?? or is she gay because he for sure is and I dont buy she doesnt know he is – he is probably paying her to appear as his “girlfriend.”

  27. Kim says:

    What is she wearing?! Terrible, cheap looking outfit.

  28. normades says:

    That bag is so wrong for that coat

    Rue d’Hetero. LOL

  29. Ron says:

    22….36… no wonder he looks old next to her.

  30. Bitter fruit says:

    So she’s that desperate for fame then.

  31. olivia says:

    don’t believe their relationship for a sec. ryan is the reason i can’t watch e or listen to kiis in the morning. ugh.

    on a sidenote, i’m also in paris. yay! it’s fun. didn’t see ryan, but saw stephen colbert with his family today – awesome.

  32. Embee says:

    This looks like the quintessential gay uncle showing his favorite niece Paris for the first time, and indulging her interpretation of Continental fashion. Now I am kind of jealous.

  33. DGO says:

    Love the coat and style of the hat, but they don’t go together. Plus the bag is out of place. Also, what happened to her face? It’s not just the fullness. Her jaw and everything looks off.

  34. jen says:

    Whatever… Once upon a time, Ricky Martin pretended to be straight too.

  35. I Choose Me says:

    Don’t care for Ryan, don’t care if he’s gay or not. I’m digging that coat Juliane WhoCares is wearing. The rest of the outfit is fug, well her accessories are fug and take away from that lovely coat.

  36. kelly says:

    LOL! Sigh. I know. So gay 🙂

    Not living in the States, Im interested to know if he’s staying in the closet out of personal vanity issues or career-fear. Would anyone really care if he was the gay host of a crap show, rather than the straight one?

  37. Jayna says:

    Julianne was stunning with blond hair. But average with darker hair. She looks kind of blah in the promos for Burlesque with I think red hair. She is one girl that needs to go back to blond, with extensions and tanning. She was adorable on DWTS.

  38. Jayna says:

    He’s not gay. Simon and he are friends. And Simon would make gay jokes on Idol. Ryan always takes it in good fun. If Ryan was gay, a good friend like Simon would never to do that to him on tv if Ryan was in the closest. Two, Ryan wouldn’t get a kick out of people thinking he was gay if he really was. He’s definitely metrosexual.

  39. di butler says:

    I know a girl here in ATL who went to school with The Seacrest. She swears he’s not teh ghey and she made out with him, back in the day. Who knows.

  40. deen says:

    Ryan Gaycrest is gay, and the girl is a BEARD. People in Hollywood still hide their homosexuality. Remember, Rock Hudson’s fake marriage with Doris Day.

  41. slymm27 says:

    many of you including the writer of this piece dont realiize how annoying you are, with your malfunctioning ‘gaydar’…whatever that is. You just sit behind your comp screens and go on and on about who is and who isnt gay. Stop it. Its disgusting.

  42. Stronzilla says:

    Let’s hope he took her shopping because in that getup the Parisian woman must be laughing their collective asses off. All pieces that separately might work but together just a mess. That purse would be much more at home in SoCal with a pair of jeans. And yet, with the exception of that shirt Ryan looks quite suave and debonair. Ha, must have put the plaid shirt on to butch up and not give the game away. I bet it’s killing him. And I also bet its tucked in!

  43. Liana says:

    God, Ryan Seacrest is a nasty piece of work. I don’t think he’ll ever have the kind of respect that Dick Clark had/has because he’s a ruthless little bitch who really doesn’t care who he steps on.

  44. Tiffany says:

    He is gay and she is a beard. Period. I could care less. Look up Ryan Seacrest and Merv Griffin on google and read what you find. He was his houseboy/pet.
    She looks like she has done something to her face and I don’t like her dark hair. She looked so cute before.

  45. Mia135 says:

    He might have told her to dye her hair dark. He seems the type that would dictate to a woman what she should wear, how she should dress, etc. Maybe he doesn’t like blondes.
    I have an ex just like Ryan – at first I couldn’t figure out if he was gay or just meterosexual.

  46. Trippin says:

    Right!!! I bet he was text messaging Simon Cowell the whole time.

  47. Francesca says:

    He has her fooled. I’m sure she thinks this is a love affair. At 22, you don’t know how sad the world really is… or how to spot a guy pretending to not be gay or not be married or whatever. T’an pi..
