As for Julianne Hough, she and fellow actress Nina Dobrev have launched a wine company called Fresh Vine Wine.
“When I was 21, I actually ended up dating your former host Ryan Seacrest,” the 34-year-old singer said on The Kelly Clarkson Show on April 20. On our first date, he revealed his passion for wine to me. He is a winery owner in both Napa Valley and Italy.
Julianne claims that she was never allowed to consume alcohol as a youngster since her family was involved in the LDS Church.
“He introduced me to wine,” the former Dancing with the Stars contestant went on. Because my family is Latter-day Saint, I was never exposed to the pleasures of alcoholic beverages. But I’ve learned a lot from this experience.
In her own words: “He taught me how to smell, taste, and swirl the glass, and I love learning, so it was like he was giving me a gift.” It was quite chilly and revitalizing.
Ryan and Julianne dated for approximately two years before breaking up in 2013. According to E! News’s sources, the couple had broken up amicably because of their busy schedules. Following her 2017 marriage to Brooks Laich and subsequent 2019 divorce filing, the dancer discussed her self-esteem issues for the first time.
“It was 2013 and I had just gotten out of a relationship that was very high profile,” Julianne said on Instagram in 2020. Despite coming from a modest background, “I was on private planes and yachts and living in a very, very well-off house.”
The Rock of Ages actor/singer explained, “I wanted to create that for myself because I kind of felt like I didn’t deserve it.”
Ryan and Aubrey Paige dated from 2021 to 2022, and by 2022, Ryan admitted to Aubrey that he loved her. American Idol judge Julianne Hough reinforced her friendship with Ryan Seacrest, host of On-Air With Ryan Seacrest, during an appearance on the show with her brother Derek.
