Julianne Hough spotted making out with someone who wasn’t Ryan Seacrest


Hold onto your dancing shoes, folks. It looks like Julianne Hough, girlfriend to Ryan Seacrest, might be getting some on the side, according to an eyewitness who called into the popular “Dave and Jimmy” radio talk show. If this story is true, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time that Julianne is rumored to have gotten close to another guy while she’s been with Ryan, for she looked uncomfortably comfortable with her Rock of Ages co-star, Diego Bonita, just a few months ago. Now, she’s had a reported liplock with her Footloose co-star, Kenny Wormald, and the allegations are that she basically had her tongue down his throat last weekend at a Nashville nightclub. Gross:


We were in Nashville for a bachelorette party. There were seven of us girls, and it was towards the end of the night, so we decided to head into Sistee’s lounge, which is a pretty popular bar in Nashville. From what I hear, it’s where the celebrities go. We look over, and there’s this chick sitting on the stage making out with this guy. One of my friends looks over and recognizes that it’s the guy from Footloose — the guy star from Footloose. So we’re like, “Let’s go over and get a picture with them.” And we haven’t recognized the chick at this point because her face was buried in his, so um, we walked over and grabbed him. As we were pulling him away to get a picture with him, the girl that he was with grabbed him to pull him back. And he kept coming with us and took a couple of pictures with us, and then my friend looked back and recognized that it was Julianne Hough that he was making out with.

The next day, we were readng in the newspaper from out hotel room, and there was a story about how the entire cast of Footloose was in Nashville the previous night for a pre-screening of the movie.

[From Dave and Jimmy]

So is this story true? Who knows, but the timeline details do seem to measure up since Julianne indeed attended the Nashville premiere of Footloose last weekend. Seacrest was not visible on the red carpet either, so we’re left to assume that he was not in attendance. Yeah, she probably did make out with Wormald in that club, but ugh — if she’s going to step out on Seacrest — couldn’t she at least have picked someone who is at least somewhat worth it? If the positively brutal reviews for Footloose are true, this Wormald guy isn’t going to go much further than this remake.

Meanwhile, Ryan is 37-years-old, whereas Julianne is only 23-years-old, and she’s likely still in the young phrase where being tied down isn’t the first thing on her mind. Plus, her movie career is (temporarily) on the upswing, and she’s travelling all over the place to do filming in promotion. Poor Seacrest needs to find himself a new steady girlfriend, or you know, put out a want ad.

    It’s tough to be a full time beard.

  2. brin says:

    I heard that the movie (surprisingly) got good reviews. Julianne is young, pretty and talented…I don’t know why she’s with Seacrest anyway.

  3. sauvage says:

    Beard got bored.

  4. Dana M says:

    Probably just me maybe, but when I was 22/23, an almost 40- year old man to me was OLD and it would creep me out to be in a relationship with him.

    The bearding theory is starting to make sense. Perhaps Ryan and her brother are the ones in the relationship and she is their cover!

  5. DrM says:

    So far its at 74% Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes .com. That does not equate to ‘brutal’ reviews…


  6. Sarah says:

    He’s 37?! Huh, never would’ve guessed that.

  7. Quest says:

    I saw Julianne and Kenny on DTWS and they have great chemistry…it would not surprise me if this was true

  8. gee says:

    She looks like a baby!

    And ps, I will totally see this footloose. I loved the old one, but this looks good too.

  9. Jenn says:

    he is always signing off with “Seacrest out”. Maybe Seacrest needs to come out.

  10. mel says:


  11. tapioca says:

    Woah, is that her in the vest and blue bikini? She looks 14, 15 tops!

  12. PrettyTarheel says:

    The picture of her at the pool is freaking me out. She has such a young look there-almost child-like. Without all the make-up and the fashion-she looks young and innocent.

  13. sapphire says:

    She should lose those shorts-high waisted stuff give everyone an illusory beer gut.

  14. whome says:

    the 74% is by 13 year olds who prolly think that twilight deserves an oscar, any notable critic or person with half a brain will tell u this movie is not worth the flim it was printed on.

  15. Happymom says:

    Maybe this is part of their “arrangement” and Ryan knows and doesn’t care. Perhaps Katie Holmes would look less lobotomized if this was part of her deal too.

  16. Kimbob says:

    Hahaha…@Happymom…so true!!! For real..oh geez…for God’s sake…yes…SHE’S RYAN’S BEARD!!!

  17. Denise says:

    Or, he could come out of the closet and get a boyfriend.

  18. Joe's Mom says:

    The facts of this story sound suspicious, or like mistaken identity. Like the “Footloose guy” is supposedly making out with JH, in public, but allows himself to be dragged away so he can get his pic taken by 7 batchelorette-partiers instead? I’d think JH would be way more discreet than this. I’ve never even seen a pic of her kissing Ryan Seacrest that I can think of. Plus, I think I heard there was a screening party for this movie, and JH and Ryan Seacrest went together, and RS actually danced with JH, which he doesn’t normally do, and JH thought it was a big deal. JMHO.

  19. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    That red outfit looks nice but does it have zippers in the back if ya have to pee?

  20. Mikki says:

    Never understood this relationship, and don’t see the attraction with Seacrest!

    I did read that scathing review on Pajiba about Footloose, and I won’t be seeing it. Some movies should not be remade!

  21. CG says:

    I love the pic of them at the pool where Derek looks like he wants to shank Seacrest and Seacrest looks all, “Whatever, girl!” Lovers quarrel!

  22. LIVEALOT says:

    LOVE the stripe dress and yes she’s his BEARD.

  23. Lucinda says:

    There have been a lot of blind items about someone bearding for their brother and his boyfriend and this always seemed to fit. I wondered what was gonna happen when she wanted to get some of her own though…

  24. HotPockets says:

    You know what I think is going on in this relationship? Ryan Seacrest and Julianne’s brother have a thing going on and it is convenient there is a hot sister to beard the whole relationship. I can totally see it. Derek and Ryan are the real couple, she just occasionally has to hang around.

    I mean, look at the second to last picture of the three of them, there is so much sexual tension between Derek and Ryan and Julianne is sick of being the beard between them.

  25. Rachael says:

    “If the positively brutal reviews for Footloose are true, this Wormald guy isn’t going to go much further than this remake.”

    You probably should have checked rottentomatoes before typing that sentence, because it’s 74% fresh with 117 reviews counted. Look, I’m just as shocked and appalled by this as anyone else, but clearly this is the cold hard truth. I’ve actually only heard surprisingly good reviews of it so far.

  26. Rachael says:

    @whome said: “the 74% is by 13 year olds who prolly think that twilight deserves an oscar, any notable critic or person with half a brain will tell u this movie is not worth the flim it was printed on.”

    Apparently you don’t understand the way rottentomatoes works. Reviews of 13 year olds are not counted, unless there is some very advanced 13 year old out there who has a job writing for Variety, the New York Times, etc. … like some sort of “Doogie Howser” of the journalism world.

  27. fabchick says:

    You guys are so right. The pic by the pool speaks volumes lol.

  28. grace says:

    The only thing to say is thanks for selecting a pic with Derek showing his hot body! ;p

  29. Isa says:

    I find this hard to believe…who would recognize the guy before they would recognize Hough? She’s not even that famous but has he been in anything at all.

    Besides…she’s still a VIRGIN and is saving herself for MARRIAGE! ha.

    Makeup does her wonders.

    Oh, and I’m pretty sure she’s already been engaged before.

  30. ShanKat says:

    Hey there, Derek Hough.

  31. normades says:

    @Rachael: “like some sort of “Doogie Howser” of the journalism world.” lolololololols!

    Yes, if I was to pick out the couple in the last pick it would be the guys.

  32. Joy McBride says:

    This story is so fabricated!! Julianne would not mess around with Kenny Wormald, he has a beautiful girfriend named Lauren Bennet, she has long blond hair also, Ryan was not at the Nashville premier with Julianne, but you can bet her mom and sisters were and this would not ever happen around them or anyone else, Julianne and Ryan are very much in love and why people can not see that I do not understand. Julianne would never beard for anyone, she is a very honest and sincere person. Her brother Derek is not gay either, he had a 1 1/2 yrs relationship with Shannon whom he danced with on the show and recently has been in a relationship with the beautiful Cheryl Cole. Why you print this crap is beyond me but you are not going to break Julianne and Ryan up with this, they know the truth.

  33. Annie_Grey says:

    I think Wormald is pretty cute and may get some more movie parts. Zac efron would’ve kicked butt in Footloose, though. I’m glad Chace Crawford didn’t do it.

  34. DrM says:

    @whome! Right…I see your challenge and will check this out! LOL I’m not an American btw so you will have to forgive me if my knowledge of “top critics” is a little sketchy…I also don’t watch American movies much….

    Leonard Maltin gave it a good review
    Good reviews from the New York and Washington Posts
    Good review from Time Magazine

    and bad reviews too, its a bit a mixed bag but still not in the brutal category. The 74% I quoted last night was all critics….it did not include audiences…its 72% now for critics and 71% for audiences…on the positive side 😛

    And I don’t think people go to FootLoose thinking they are going to have a cinematic experience eh? More like I’ve had a shite week and I need to watch some brain candy and eat some popcorn….:)

  35. erin says:

    Well, I’m from Nashville and I’ve never heard of a place called Sistee’s. We work with a lot of clubs here, and maybe it’s a BIG secret, but whatevs.

  36. LuckyLilGem says:

    Heard her on his radio show promoting her movie, she sounds like a man.

  37. Janie says:

    I don’t believe this story about her and the co-star. Nor do I believe she and Mr. Seacrest are a real couple. The relationship looks like a nice little business arrangment. She’ll move on with some future co-star eventually.

  38. danielle says:

    Actually, I heard a rumor that Seacrest was cheating on Julianna too…with a WOMAN!!! Maybe he’s bi? I do think she’d be dumb to run around on Seacrest – she’s ambitious and he’s a big deal.

  39. Joe's Mom says:

    Oh yeah, and as @Erin from Nashville said, I Googled this, as I’m not from Nashville, but there is no place called Sistee’s there, or Sister’s, or anything remotely like that. I think this is BS.

  40. Camille says:

    Or maybe Seacrest just needs to find himself a better beard.
