Apparently Entertainment Tonight has a different definition for red hot rumor than I do. I am guessing it is different from your definition and anyone who actually has a pulse. For some reason, they spent time and money and resources to interview Julianne Hough. Not sure why actually. Anyway, in their report talking about the interview this is some of what they said.
"Dancing with the Stars" pro turned actress and country singer Julianne Hough welcomes ET to her new hometown of Nashville, TN over the Fourth of July weekend, and she addresses the red-hot rumor that she's dating "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest!"
Since when is that red hot? Even if it were true which I think most of us agree it is not, how would that be red hot? I don't think red hot really describes any dating. Red hot should be for beatings and drug arrests that don't involve Lindsay Lohan or Tom Sizemore. Now, if you told me Ryan Seacrest was sleeping next to the coffin of Merv Griffin, now that would be a red hot rumor. If you told me that Julianne's brother was trying to date Cheryl Cole because he actually liked her and not her money, now that would be a red hot rumor.
As for whether Julianne is dating Ryan?
"If you guys want to know anything about boys or relationships, you'll just have to listen to the music, 'cause it's all in there,"
So, umm, we have to buy the album to find out? It isn't like she is writing these songs. I'm actually shocked she said you'll instead of ya'll.
