Even Ryan Seacrest’s New Girlfriend Thought He Was A Gay

Why’d it take so long for Ryan Seacrest to score a date with country singer and Dancing With The Stars champ Julianne Hough? Because just like you, she thought he was gay.

“He was after me since I was 18 … he totally wasn’t my type … I thought he was gay,” Hough (“reportedly”) told friends at her birthday dinner. “After a few years, he was persistent … so I went out with him on a date and I realized how much I liked him.”

Well no wonder: Gay men and straight women both enjoy shopping, criticizing others, and spending hours in front of the mirror. Shared interests, people! Although I am more inclined to believe this relationship is true because Dancing With The Stars, which made Hough a household-ish name, airs on ABC and is not produced by any companies Mr. Seacrest has a business interest in.

    Oh please! How much is this beard being paid to fake it?

  • cyndi

    I think he is strait.
    There is such a thing as femme strait dudes.

    They make good lovers for a bisexual leaning lesbian like myself.

  • Enron

    I get the Gay vibe from Seacrest and its been pretty good since the 80’s. I got it for George Michael, Boy George, Ricky Martin, Patrick Harris and so many more. Of course, he has to protect his sexuality because of what it could mean for his financial status and as Queerty notes, business interest. He even has a Gay Mom type of old lady, not to mention his childhood which wreaks, gay, gay, gay.

    A fat paycheck and a 5 year contract would make me stop thinking he’s gay too.

  • Lanjier

    They really had to scrape the barrel to find someone to five-year with him.

  • Matt

    Gay as a goose.

    New “girlfriend” is a better beard than Teri Hatcher.

  • cyndi

    You guys just think any guy who isn’t a brute is gay. My inner radar is telling me he is strait. Maybe bisexiual but his eyes tell the tale. He likes women but is way shy about it.
    What I see with Ryan is a man who isn’t manly enough for social norms so he must be labeled gay by society.

    I know how bad it is for society to force strait on me, wonder if it is the same when the world tries to force Ryan into being gay?

  • Hilarious

    @cyndi: I’ll listen to your “inner radar” when you learn how to spell the word “straight”.

    PS: There are plenty of gay brutes. Just go to any gym.

    Your pretend gaydar is broken.

  • cyndi

    so I spell poorly
    Must be an inner character flaw of some kind that calls for the imediate dismissal of all my opinins.

  • Hilarious

    @cyndi: Is that a snack chip?

  • Marcus


    Sure, they’re are a lot femme straight guys.

    Unfortunately, Shecrest isn’t one of them.

  • cyndi

    Well perhaps he is bisexual. Cause I am sure I could bed that boy if I got him in a secluded situation, and all you seem dead set he is gay. hmmmm

  • shanelle

    I do not understand why a gay man or a straight woman would be interrested in him: not attractive, interesting, charming, or funny. All he got going for him is a 5 year multimillion dollar contract.

    o k — I get it now.



    “I can’t wait to grow up and get me a pretend girlfriend!!!”

  • Jett

    Ms. Hough should know how to pick them after being around her brother for a lifetime…

  • Hilarious

    @shanelle: The one time I watched American Idol when it first started I thought he was cute. I have no idea how he blew up into the overrated star he’s become though.

    He reeks of douchebaggery.

  • L.

    @Hilarious: I would like to marry you. I have no money (but we can get a contr… prenup.)
