Julianne Hough on her virginity & fear of dating “powerful” Ryan Seacrest

Julianne Hough

Julianne Hough is still busily promoting Rock of Ages ahead of this weekend’s opening, and now the topic of discussion has inevitably come around to her dating relationship with Ryan Seacrest. This story has been forecasted by a 2008 declaration by Julianne of her own enduring virginity when she said, “[I]f you’re just with one person, it’s only for one good reason, and [waiting to have sex] will strengthen that relationship.” More power to her, really. If I had stayed a virgin until marriage, I think that life would be at least slightly less complicated at this point. Just saying.

So my question is this — even though 3+ years later, it’s none of our business whether or not Julianne is still a virgin; yet I’m still admittedly curious about whether or not Ryan would be fine about not having sex with Julianne after they’ve been dating for two years. Of course, I’m not intending to seem judgmental right now, but it’s strange that an alleged virgin would wear this braless, underwearless dress to a premiere, right? Regardless of Julianne’s sexual status, she has now framed her argument in terms of being initially “afraid” of dating Ryan Seacrest because he is so “rich and powerful“:

Julianne Hough

Julianne Hough admits she was afraid of dating Ryan Seacrest — because he’s so rich and powerful.

The star insists she was never worried about Seacrest being 14 years older than her but resisted a relationship because of his wealth and clout in Hollywood.

“I’ve never dated anyone my age but Ryan is definitely the oldest man I’ve dated. Age is irrelevant I think,” she said.

“Mutual friends would be like, ‘You guys would match perfectly.’ And then eventually when I was single, he emailed me. I was very cold. I was nervous about dating him because he is a very scary person. He’s powerful and influential. I was like, ‘No, no, no’ but it just ended up happening. Our inside joke is that we have to schedule scheduling hanging out. But it somehow works.”

Julianne was raised Mormon and had a strict upbringing, and though she is more relaxed now, she admits some of the lessons have stayed with her. “We learned about being humble, thoughtful and grateful, always to see the good in people. No sex before marriage, no drinking alcohol, no drugs, no dating before you are 16, pornography is not good. The thinking is there are certain things that pollute your mind, that aren’t giving you great direction.

“I still try to be a good person — yeah, I like a glass of wine with dinner and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. I think a lot of rules are to guide and protect people from going too far, I know where my limit is — everything in moderation.”

[From Showbiz Spy]

From this latest interview, I would probably infer that “everything in moderation” in relation to Julianne’s perceived vices would mean that she’s possibly having sex at this point. I mean, she’s already admitted to drinking wine, which is a Mormon no-no, so it’s not too far of an assumption to conclude that she might have taken the “no sex before marriage” ban out of circulation as well. Just a thought, and I’m still wondering if Ryan will ever put a ring on it.

    Am I the only one who is skeptical? To each his/her own!

  2. lisa says:

    I had no idea she was a Mormon nor the stance on no sex. If she is still a virgin then I understand all the talk of her being a “beard”. But I don’t know. But man now all those speculations have a bit of truth.

    but again I don’t really think Ryan is gay (more asexual). But who was he dating before her. I can’t recall if it was someone known or unknown.

    • Trashaddict says:

      if she is Mormon, so much for the underwear. Or is that after you’re married?

  3. lucy2 says:

    And suddenly their relationship makes sense.

    • mia girl says:

      YES! Perfect sense.

    • sarahtonin says:

      Yeah now it makes sense to me too.

      I’d never considered it before but a virgin waiting until she gets married would be the ideal girlfriend for a man who isn’t into women. None of that nasty hetero sex to deal with and she can think you’re the perfect gentleman for not pressuring her.

  4. DailyNightly says:

    If they are not sleeping together after 2 years, it’s not because she’s a Mormon.

  5. Hmmmm... says:

    In terms of her dress, you can still be sexy and confident in your looks and be a virgin. I think her decision to wait to have sex has nothing to do with her being shy or afraid of her sexuality.

    • Mel says:

      Agreed – I was going to post the same thing. Also, how many virgins do you hear about who eagerly tell about the fact that they give and receive sexual pleasure in other ways – just not the ‘penetration’ part.
      To each their own! And if Julianne is a virgin but wants to wear a sexy dress, then why not?

      • lettylynton says:

        Agreed! Good for Julianne; and I think she looks awesome in that yellow dress.

    • SallyBee says:

      Agreed. For a person to think that virgins can’t be sexy is rediculous and ignorant.

      • jamie says:

        I think it’s more about her being Mormon. The church REALLY emphasizes “modesty” to girls (very anti-sexy!). Growing up it always seemed to me that girls who were more willing to buck tradition and do things like wear sleeveless dresses were more open minded as far as other Mormon teachings…. But who knows and who cares. Normally I’d say I hope she and Ryan Seacrest are getting their freak on but that just makes me go ew. They have got to be the most boring and unappealing celeb couple out there.

    • Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

      She is comfortable in such revealing clothing because she is a dancer. The typical morman would die of embarrassment showing so much skin–but Julie is used to it because of her work.

  6. Jade says:

    Pretty girl – she could do so much better. Maybe someone around her age?

    • Carolyn says:

      “Could do better”? She wouldn’t have a career if it wasn’t for Seacrest’s influence. She’s hanging onto him for dear life. Nothing special about her acting skills or looks – blonde pretty “dancers/actresses” are a dozen. Ditto on all the bearding comments already posted.

  7. Luise says:

    He’s gay.

  8. Cleveland Girl says:

    She is a Mormon? OK. But word on the street for years is that Seacrest is a homosexual. I feel bad for both of them that they have to live this charade.

    • TheOriginalTiffany says:

      He was Merv Griffins rent boy and asst, I thought.
      Tooooo lazy to google now. Way too late of a night at Premiere.

      The food alone will lay you out for days. All sushi and sashimi. With everything else, ice cream sundaes as an ode to Boston and chocolate covered strawberries. I’m too foggy to think this am.

      • littlestar says:

        Merv Griffin was gay?! Had no idea! Makes even more sense that Ryan was his “rent boy” too, considering the parallels/similarities in their careers. Vary vary in-ter-est-ing.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        As far as that menu goes, you’re KILLING me with food envy. But was it you who talked about having developed illness-related intolerance to food? If it was you, was there anything you could enjoy? Maybe you’re used to it now (if I’m thinking of the right person), but I’d lose my mind in a situation like that. Hope it was fun, what was premiering?


        I knew that Merv Griffin was gay, but it never occurred to me to think beyond it into personals. I suppose he was from a generation of stars for whom the love didn’t dare to speak its name, but it was definitely on speed dial.

        But Seacrest as Ganymede to an aging star entering into his baton-passing twilight? That’s news to me.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Oh, Jo Mama! Kinda depressing for me. Lobsters, caviar, every type of meat and whole platters of sashimi and rolls. I always take pics. Our cirque du soliel show premiered last night in Boston. We will be back in Canada next year.

        What did I eat? Miso soup, a little bit of chicken and some cherries. Bleak, ain’t it? Everyone foodgasming and me with miso soup. So boring. The chocolate covered strawberries and champagne made me sick today, but I have to have a little fun.

        I can’t believe someone didn’t know Merv was gay. You can google Ryan and Merv and stuff will pop up. That’s why he had that long friendship with Ava Gabor.

        Anyway, I think Merv settled in the Bahamas? And Ryan became his rent boy and protégée, considering his tv empire, I tend to believe he learned at the ” knee” of Merv.

  9. lady_luck says:

    Well look at how Britney and Miley Cyrus (the other self-proclaimed virgins) ended up ?!! Not to doubt the girl, but if there was no nooky happening, why is Ryan not in a rush to put a ring on it? Still I find these stances in this day and age to be completely refreshing. I think if all women had this attitude it would create a happier more virtuous society where marriage is more accepted as a way of introducing intimacy. Of course, we have the exact opposite happening, and men being allowed to get a way with being complete pigs – milking many cows without having to buy them, or buying them temporarily at the drop of a hat. Sorry to be so crass, but sometimes it’s so depressing to see where so-called “liberation” has led men and women these days. p.s this isn’t an old woman speaking, but one in their early 30’s.

    • Lukie says:

      I’m sorry but I can’t wrap my head around virtuous socities due to a woman’s virginal vagina.

      Gotta tell ya. People have always done the do married or not. The only difference is there are less places on earth that will slap a scarlet letter on you and stone you to death once you get caught.

      Self love. Self respect. Self confidence. Self worth. If people had a lot more of this, socities would be a lot happier and more virtuous.

    • Cel says:

      What happens if you are not sexually compatible with your husband – are you supposed to stay married to someone who can’t/won’t satisfy you?

      You can have a loving, committed relationship without being married. You can also go on a few “test drives” before deciding what/who is right for you without being a slut.

      • MW says:

        Not arguing with you, but if one was never with anyone else, how would you even know your husband was a bum lay? I agree with you “a few test drives” theory. I think that might be why women way back when, when it was common to wait till marriage, “hated sex” or at least put up with it as a wifely duty that felt they had to “endure”. Nowadays – I truly do not know what propels men to be more considerate. A desire to actually please, or be a stud, or the fear that women will compare notes and laugh behind his back?

      • Embee says:

        I, personally, have no idea why women let a man penetrate without proving that he can satisfy FIRST. I mean, really. It’s not that hard (possibly easier) to achieve orgasms without penetration. He’s either interested in satisfying you or he’s not. Penetration has nothing to do with it.

    • Susan says:

      I think that everyone has to do what works for them. I met my husband in college at 19 before I even had a chance to rack up a list. 17 years later we are still very happy. But it just kinda happened that way. It doesn’t make me superior in any way to my friends that have been with more people (they sure had fun!). Not all of them want marriage or kids. One size does not fit all. As long as someone doesn’t pursue attached men, bosses (for promotions sake) or the ex of a friend, anything else is perfectly acceptable and can bring much happiness.

    • hmmmm..... says:

      Oh no…it’s much better to go back to the “old days” when men came home drunk and beat their wives half to death and the little woman had to “grin and bear it” and then have the pigs children on top of it!

      Divorce was taboo then too or aren’t you old enough to recall those “good old days”?

      • lady_luck says:

        @hmmmm bit of a gross stereotype you have going on there. with all due respect, all of that stuff is happening in this day and age too. What goes on behind closed doors goes on. My point was about the virtue that women tended to apply to their own bodies back in those days, was far more stringent than what we know now. It would seem from your comment that you believe stds, aids, promiscuity, teengage pregnancies, abortions on demand and no-holds barred rampent swinging from the chandeliers is a much bettera alternative than good old fashioned modesty and virtue.

      • Hmmmm... says:

        Wait, there is another Hmm? Well, I capitalize my H. I guess I should come up with a new name now.

        I actually can see your point Lady Luck. I was going to say more, but I don’t want to cause confusion.

    • Cel says:

      And what about boys/men’s virtue and modesty?

      Or are you of the opinion that boys will be boys and girls always have to be “good”?

      • anon33 says:

        ^^^THIS TIMES A FRIGGIN MILLION. SO SICK of the world’s morality being laid on women’s shoulders.

    • pp says:

      You’re right…but let’s face it, men act like pigs because many women let them. Now a days it’s like two people meet and within 5 hours they are in bed with each other…like the show Jersey Shore…it’s disgusting. No morals or values anymore…and I’m a YOUNG woman saying this. Nothing wrong with waiting until you’re married, I have the same beliefs and I’m not mormon. Why jump into bed with every woman/man you find attractive…what is the point? It’s disgusting. Good for Julianne Hough for taking control…I’m sure there are alot of young women that would jump into bed with Ryan just to get ahead in Hollywood.

      • Embee says:

        What makes sex less disgusting when there is a piece of paper documenting a legal arrangement to be liable for your partner’s debts and entitled to half their crap?

        For that matter, when the people involved are consenting adults, what makes sex more disgusting when it happens wihtin 5 hours of meeting, as opposed to 5 months?

        Same act.

      • pp says:

        because it’s called being in a committed relationship…it is disgusting to jump into bed with someone you just met 5 hours ago and know very little about…this is why STD’s are so rampant. I’m not saying married people are any better, they cheat on each other too. It’s about being committed to one person and not just jumping from bed to bed. Sorry, that’s disgusting to me. I’m just giving my opinion…people can do as they please.

      • Henry says:

        ha! loads of ignorant comments here. all whom aren’t sure of the effects pre-marital sex has on one’s chemicals, brain chemistry and most importantly married life.

        @embee: sex isnt just an ACT. for many people, it has way more meaning than performing an ACT. we aren’t animals – so we shouldnt be performing sexual acts for pleasure – sex should be way more than that.

        but who cares right? liberalism has taught us that sex is for pleasure and we should pursue all that is pleasure to no end. is it any wonder that divorce cases are on the rise? ;D

        and @tiffany below. women arent cows, but they behave like one – most of them. you can’t possibly be treated like one if you don’t behave like one. They just have sex whenever with whoever. by the time they are married in their 30s, they would have probably gone through 5 serious relationships and probably had that same amount of partners.

        I’m not marrying a woman like that thanks.

        and btw, the more number of pre-marital sexual partners you have, the higher the incidence of you having an affair/cheating in marriage.

        go google all these – it’s all out there but no one bothers to read them. feminism and liberalism for the win, eh! ;D

    • Tiffany says:

      I really don’t like the comment about milking a lot of cows without buying them.

      1.) Women are not cows.
      2.) Just because a man marries a woman, doesn’t mean that he won’t cheat on her. It doesn’t mean that he won’t ever leave her for a younger woman.

    • Original Lucy says:

      I am not suggesting no sex before marriage…but I do understand where lady luck is coming from…young girls today, and I mean YOUNG girls are being exposed to all this trash that seems to be saying if you are sexy, men will love you, if you have sex with him, the guy will stay with you, sex and sexy will make you popular…womens lib was supposed to be empowering young women to pursue carreers and have the same choices as men…seems like the guys were the ones who benefitted the most from women’s lib…

  10. Viv says:

    Ryan is BEYOND clever. To choose a beautiful Mormon as a beard is genius. I guess only one of them is having sex before marriage.

  11. spugzbunny says:

    I honestly though Sir Seacrest was out gay. It never occured to me that he wasn’t.

    Hmmm. 2 years and no sex. And he’s not a mormon either right? Hmmmm

    • francesca says:

      My husband and I dated 4 years without doing the deed. We both wanted it to feel special and mean something (we are in our 30’s). Our wedding night was really meaningful and it’s been wonderful ever since.

      • HowardFan says:

        SHE IS NOT A VIRGIN-Ryan did a phone interview with Howard Stern, he asked point blank, and Ryan said they were having sex. Look it up. This was for AGT promotion

  12. DogBoy says:

    She’s stunning. If no one’s hitting it, what a shame.

  13. erica says:

    Didn’t she say she would move in with him if they got engaged? I assume that means that they would be having sex…

  14. Cel says:

    As a Mormon who states pornography is “not good”, I wonder how she feels about her boyfriend making money off the Kardashians, who are only famous because of Kim’s sex tape??

    • Lukie says:


    • me says:

      Good point ! But Julianne does wear skimpy outfits on DWTS and did you see her in the movie “Foot Loose”? I guess if it’s for “work” then she feels it’s ok? They make an odd couple for sure. Is she still a mormon now though? She just states she grew up mormon. Her brother has been in many relationships, wonder if he follows his religion…he dated Shannon Elizabeth from American Pie for God’s sake !

      Julianne was engaged before…I think at the age of 19…but it obviously broke off.

      • littlestar says:

        Wasn’t he married to Shannon Elizabeth? I think they were married, but obviously divorced. I remember on Perez Hilton, Perez kept call Shannon Derek’s beard. Someone correct me if I’m wrong!

      • pp says:

        No I believe Shannon Elizabeth was divorced from her previous husband and then started dating Julianne’s brother.

      • MW says:

        Derek and Shannon lived together but weren’t married. They split and he was with Cheryl Cole, the English singer/celeb for quite a while. I think she broke his heart a little bit. I think Perez Hilton WISHES Derek was gay! No way do I think he is.

  15. Sienna says:

    I was so surprised when I read she was my age. She has wrinkles already! The first time I saw a picture of her, I thought she was a beautiful, well-preserved 35 year old. So given the age she looks, she doesn’t look strange next to 14 year older Seacrest at all. A virgin? Not sure I believe that.

    • Erinn says:

      Be thankful… Julianne’s almost two years older than I am and I have a relatively deep forehead wrinkle. Partially from squinting because I refused to wear my glasses for so long when I was younger, and from stress/anxiety.

      • MW says:

        Erinn – Always seems to me that people with wrinkles, or early wrinkles on their forehead seem to be happy, smiley people who raise their eyebrows and smile and laugh a lot!

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Hey MW, that makes me feel better, my only wrinkles are forehead ones from laughing, not the 11’s in the middle.

    • thetruthhurts says:

      Google a picture of her without makeup and you will change your mind. She looks like a 14 year old girl.

    • pp says:

      actually she looks very young without make-up on…check out the movie “Foot Loose” at the beginning of the movie she is playing a 13 year old and looks super young !

  16. sukienow says:

    she has had quite a few long term relationships, i doubt sex wasnt happening.

    this might be similar to the case of britney claiming she was a virgin, when it later turn out she and timberlake were sexing lol.

    i doubt she is a virgin

  17. Skins says:

    What about that divorced country singer she was going with for awhile? I assumed they were bonking, it sure looked like it when they danced on dancing with the stars. She can’t waste her life away being Seacrest’s beard

    • pk says:

      yeah but she has benefited quite a bit by dating Ryan…she’s gotten a number of movie roles…he had to have something to do with that…before her movie roles, she was only on DWTS…nothing else. She was fairly unknown really, and now she’s starring in a movie with Tom Cruise. I’m not saying she’s using Ryan, but I do think it has benefited her A LOT.

  18. Anne says:

    I am so tired of all these celebrities going on about being virgins. Why do they feel the need to bring it up? Talking publicly about your sex life in such specific terms, is just tacky. Such a pathetic need for attention.

  19. JudyK says:

    Why do I not like her? It’s nothing new…could never stand her on DWTS, either. But I can’t quite put my finger on why.

    • toots says:

      I don’t know JudyK, could it be that she is always smiling, great personality, gorgeous, happy, friendly, charismatic, great body, talented, successful & everything else you are not?

      • JudyK says:

        Uh, you do NOT know me, and I’m not jealous of beautiful women…oh, let’s see…maybe you ARE Julianne (or her beard).

        While I admit she’s drop-dead gorgeous and talented, she simply does not appeal to me. Satisfied, Toots?

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        The Difference:

        Children demand respect.
        Adults command respect.

        Choose wisely.

  20. Jayna says:

    Most virgins do everything but, so no innocent. I don’t think she is anymore. I don’t think she was with the one before Ryan. Plus she and Ryan are spending the night with one another, living together when not apart for work.

    • SallyBee says:

      Are you saying it is impossible to sleep in a bed with a man without having sex? If so, my husband should have married you and not me, because I am certainly not having sex every night.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Your argument presumes that they could never have sex when sleeping in the same bed. That’s naive.

      • Jayna says:

        I wasn’t saying that. But in the first year of dating a lot of sex is happening for most people. I was saying she is basically living with him when not away. I saw her in an interview once talking about when they get up I’n the morning, etc. Mormons frown on such intimacy outside of marriage according to my friend.

  21. Evie says:

    Ryan has like 8 different jobs and his career comes before everything. . . She must only see him once or twice a month at the most.

    • Jayna says:

      She’s very career driven right now, away making movies. This is like her third or fourth one. So I think they understand each other that way.

  22. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Here’s my theory about why Ryan has yet to put a ring on it: He is mega-mega-rich. In his mind (I would assume), he definitely wants a prenup to protect his fortune. Since she is a “conservative” Mormon, she does not believe in prenups and will want to marry without one (pretty smart if that’s her stated reason). So….just think that they are having different views on all of that legal/financial stuff and have yet to come to an agreement on it. JMHO

  23. really says:

    Malibu Ken and Barbie… if Ken were Barbie’s creepy uncle.

  24. jlo1982 says:

    it makes total since that he’s dating a virgin since he’s gay!

  25. IrishEyes says:

    Does Seacrest remind anyone else of a power-crazed Oompa Loompa? (No offense to the Oompas)

  26. palermo says:

    I’ve seen the rumors that it’s actually her brother who is “dating” Ryan …

    • KardASSian Butt ~formerly known as ZenB!tch says:

      I believe that – he sets off my gaydar too.

  27. thetruthhurts says:

    Ok, you did not just equate that a woman dressed in a braless, underwearless dress (to a Hollywood premiere none-the-less) a reason for not being a virgin did you? I’m just gonna have to skip over that one, because it’s simply, ridiculous. Saying that, I definitely think Ryan is gonna put a ring on this one. If you hear his morning show, you can tell how smitten his is with Julianne, and he should be…she’s a great girl. Smart woman, and if they are knockin’ boots, so be it. It’s been long enough and I am sure she has a good enough head on her shoulders to make a considered decision on whether or not it was the right time.

    • pp says:

      I think her dress is not as revealing as people might think. It is “flesh toned” underneath, that’s not really her skin showing. I don’t know whose comment you are replying to, but I think mormons are supposed to dress very conservatively. Is she still a practicing mormon? I think she doesn’t follow the religion anymore right? Or does she just pick and choose which parts of her faith she wants to follow? Her outfits on DWTS are very revealing and definitely not something a practicing mormon would wear.

  28. Lurkeelee says:

    That yellow dress is one of the ugliest things I have ever seen a celeb wear. Although she has worn much skimpier on DWTS. I agree with those saying the whole virginity issue is moot since RC is rumored to be gay anyway.

  29. Holly Hobby says:

    I think she had sex with Chuck the country singer. They were practically living together. So no she’s not a virgin – not that it’s any of our business.

    • sharylmj says:

      AGREE!!!!!!! If anyone watched that season of Dancing with the Stars it was pretty obvious that they were doing it. They were engaged, weren’t they?? I liked them together.. much more chemistry than with Ryan, but Ryan can help her career and I think that’s what matters to this girl.

    • RobN says:

      How can you possibly say with such certainty what somebody else is doing in their personal lives with such absolute certainty, and not just laugh out loud at yourself?

  30. Prim says:

    They are only dating each other for show. He gets a beard and she ups her profile. She was judt a DWTS dancer who would do anything for attention.

  31. barb says:

    Heellloooo…this is Hollywood. Of course they’re having sex. She herself said that everything in moderation is fine. I remember Ryan’s girlfriend when he first started getting famous. She was an unknown, and I believe they were living together. He’s not gay…he’s just a Gemini!

    • Maguita says:

      “He’s not gay…he’s just a Gemini!”

      I don’t know why… This made me laugh. Why?

  32. Happy21 says:

    I never thought Seacrest was gay and I disliked her until I read this. She seems like a pretty smart young woman. I doubt she’s still a virgin; Ryan probably took care of that which could be why he is so smitten with her.

  33. C says:

    She was having sex w guys on the set of dancing w the stars. Definitely not a virgin.

  34. C says:

    She was having sex w guys on the set of dancing w the stars. Definitely not a virgin. And Ryan is not gay

  35. mimi says:

    I thought she was a contractual beard, but now I’m afraid that she might actually be a virgin or at least not having sex with Ryan and thinking she is in a real relationship with him.

    • KardASSian Butt ~formerly known as ZenB!tch says:

      I don’t think she is that stupid. She may come across as naive and country and she may be when it comes to guys but she wants to be a big star in Hollywood and being with Ryan gives her publicity.

      If she really does care about being a virgin until marriage, this deal is also a win for her. Heck he could end up being her lifelong GBF and every girl needs a GBF.

      Unlike JT and Kelly this looks like it could be a win-win. Ryan gets a beautiful red carpet escort, Julianne gets at least some of those scummy producers off her back because Ryan is so powerful.

    I don’t want to know anything about the state of her hymen thankyouverymuch.

    As far as Seacrest goes, gay or not if he’s respecting her wishes than that’s fine by me. That’s more than most guys do these days. I’m sure they both benefit from this relationship so whatever their status, it’s nothing to pity him or her about.

    • Maguita says:


      And in a cesspool like Hollywood, her relationship with Seacrest, whether sexual or not, I’m betting gives her much needed protection.

    why do people think Ryan’s gay? Is it because he’s not prancing around Hollywood with many women, or that we don’t hear about him jumping in bed with every bimbo he meets? Maybe he’s a gentleman, ever think of that? The only thing I don’t like about Ryan is that he is the reason the Kardashians are in our faces 24/7 lol.

      He sets off my gaydar for one (we used to work at the same place a long, long time ago).

      It’s one of those open Hollywood secrets.

  38. Jensational says:

    forgive my ignorance but I just don’t understand the use of the word “beard” that y’all are throwing back and forth. Anyone care to ‘splain it to me?

    • Maguita says:

      It started with Hollywood couples:

      A gay man entering a contractual relationship with a woman, pretending to be his girlfriend, wife, significant other for conservative and promotional purposes. The relationships are often negotiated by lawyers, and responsibilities are highlighted for each party involved.

      The objective is to promote the gay man as a hunky straight, at times macho, action-hero type man. Which supposedly will get you bigger movie contracts, higher tabloid profile, and bottom-line, stardom and a lot of dollars.

      Ex. John Travolta/Kelly Preston.

      Kelly would be John’s “beard”….

      Clear as mud or Need more details? 😉

    Perfect couple! A virgin beard and her ( gay) client.

  40. Kim says:

    HAHAHAHA! Such morals (plleeaaase)! Giving Tom Cruise a lap dance while half dressed would completely be considered pornographic by the MOrmon “church”

  41. KardASSian Butt ~formerly known as ZenB!tch says:

    I’m still admittedly curious about whether or not Ryan would be fine about not having sex with Julianne after they’ve been dating for two years. ————————————————————–

    Has she dated anyone other than Seacrest since 2008? If not – she’s still a virgin. Ryan is gayer than Liberace’s underpants.

  42. Annie says:

    Gosh, I keep getting this one mixed up with Amber Heard until I saw a side by side post on them.

  43. Belle says:

    Honestly, I don’t find her preaching about morals at all… and I doubt she initiated this discussion either. Obviously, she was asked about it… and I get the impression she is saying that she did grow up in a very strict household, and while her background may help her in the choices she makes now, it doesn’t dictate every aspect of how she lives her life. I think she is probably still pretty conservative in many ways… but has become more open-minded as well.

    I tend to think she is probably not a virgin at this point, but still considers sex to be something very special (so I doubt she would be having casual hook-ups or ‘sex on the set of DWTS’).

    I don’t think Ryan is gay… and naive as it may be, also think these two might really be in love(; I know, the thought, huh? He could be straight and in love with her… and she (virgin or not) may actually love him and not dating him to help her career!

  44. Mandy says:

    Hmmm….this “relationship” has SHADY written all over it. But, that’s just my opinion.

  45. bettyrose says:

    Makes no sense to be rigid about virginity but not modesty. That’s adhering to the letter of the law with no understanding of the meaning behind it.

  46. TG says:

    I don’t think he is gay have you seen his interviews on the red carpet? This man has no clue about important questions we want asked. He is clueless. Of course not all gay men are into fashion and stuff but seriously this guy has no clue. And that virginity comment didn’t say anything about not having sex until marriage. Sounded to me like she was saying it is a good idea to wait to have sex with whomever you are with. I too was raised in a religion exactly like hers and had to learn that sex before marriage isn’t bad.

  47. Barbara says:

    Not too sure of the gay rumors re Merv Griffin…mabe Bi…cause I know he hit on me big time in a bar in Carmel in the late 70’s.

  48. erika says:


    That striking YELLOW dress just sends electricity through me!!!

    I love it LOVE IT!!!

    She looks amazing in that…wow….WOW.
    So awesome to see a star take a chance on a risky outfit but this is just electrifying to me. LOVE IT!

  49. Str8Shooter says:

    We will always have this douchetard to thank for The Kartrashians and that glorified karaoke contest.

    I used to think he was at least ‘hittable’ but I can’t even bring myself to like him for that anymore.

    Oh yeah. And he is TOTALLY gay.

  50. Neena says:

    My advice to Julianne would be to:

    Not talk about her former religion. She is not a practising Mormon anymore as far as i know.

    Also keep quite about her sex life or lack of it.

    It is a mistake for any public figure to discuss the above. Its too personal. Why bother? Your sex life or lack of it is private. Why discuss it in public?

    Also your religion or former religion should be kept private.


    • Carolyn says:

      hehe she wouldn’t have much left over to talk about. Celebrities aren’t actually that interesting….very few of them inteview cohererently without practised PR answers to set questions or have anything interesting to say (Fassy, Charlize etc etc are exceptions).

    • HowardFan says:

      You are right. But she admitted her virginity to seventeen mag when she just won dwts w/ apollo. she was 18 and new to hollywood.

  51. Autumnleaves says:

    That yellow dress is gorgeous. Not buying this fake reasons for too many reasons stated in this thread.

  52. belle says:

    Need to point this out! The slit in the yellow dress all the way from the line under her shoulder blade to her hip is FLESH-COLORED FABRIC..

    If you look closely you’ll see it – that’s why there’s a line there at all and why her skin appears “wrinkled.”

    • liz says:

      yep–surprised nobody noticed that–and that’s what the “dancers” wear on lots of their outfits–as for Ryan, i used to think he was very gay, then ( not keeping track of them though ) i heard about them as a couple–okay, i thought i was wrong, but tonite on the red carpet i thought WOW, he seems so gay tonight–looks, smile, questions etc–so i googled him and here i am hmmmmmm–all falls into place now. as Seinfeld would say ” not that there’s anything wrong with that”–come on out Ryan–you are rich now-what’s to hide?
