Julianne Hough to 'Redbook': There Was 'Nothing Right' in Past Romantic Relationships

Julianne Hough to 'Redbook': There Was 'Nothing Right' in Past Romantic Relationships

Julianne Hough dances around in Alberta Ferretti on the cover of Redbook magazine’s August 2014 issue, on newsstands July 8.

Here’s what the 25-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On her relationship with Brooks Laich vs. past relationships: “Every relationship, there was nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right. I had one foot out because I didn’t want to get hurt. And I didn’t say what was on my mind because I didn’t want to ruffle any feathers. I needed to be perfect. Now I’m not holding anything back because I’d rather get my heart broken than never know what it is to be completely, madly in love. If I had been this open in my last relationship, who knows?”

On what changed her outlook on relationships: “I had this epiphany when my family went to a six-day seminar [last November] about creating your own destiny. I was not into it at first, but I learned so much about myself and why my relationships didn’t work that by the end I was on a high. I was seeing a couple people, but immediately [pretends to text guys], ‘You are nice, but this is going nowhere.’ The next day my Curve co-star introduced [Brooks and me]. It couldn’t have been a better time. We’ve been open and honest from day one.”

The negative experiences she had when she was younger: “I bullied in high school big-time. I had just come back from London (where she trained with professional ballroom dancers) and was the new kid. People looked at me like, she thinks she’s all that. And because I didn’t know how to talk to them, maybe I did come across that way? I don’t know. I got asked to prom by a guy, and he ended up ditching me that day because the girls had told him to do it.”

Gorgeous photos.

# 2

I love her. She is my favorite dancer.

# 3

She and Ryan broke up?

# 4

Beautiful pictures! I think she should stay single for a while :)

# 5

@Bethany: I thought she was engaged to Ryan.

# 6

What? She and Ryan were my favorite couple. I wanted them to get married.

I love the pics where she is jumping in the air. Really lovely.

The headline is kind of deceptive, as the part where she said there was “nothing wrong” was edited out.

The pictures are beautiful. I’m way behind. I thought she was still with Seacrest.

Julianne is young and beautiful. She shouldn’t have to always be in a steady relationship. She should play the field until she finds out what she wants.

Did Chuck Wicks ever find someone else, because I thought he and Julianne were adorable together? I heard some dj’s on a country music station say that his song that came out in February, “Us Again” was about her. They broke up years ago, so I wondered if he was still carrying a torch for her. She was only 19 or 20 when they dated, so maybe there is still a chance for them now that she has matured.

@Janice: I liked them together too, but like you said, she was only 19 when they dated, and he was almost ten years older than her. She was way too young then for a serious relationship.

The photos, especially the ones where she is jumping, are amazing!

We saw her show with her brother in New Orleans, and it was fantastic! She was a real sweetheart. I hope she has great success with a relationship when she is ready.

Take a break from steady relationships, and play the field!

She doesn’t have to hold anything back with me!

She is headed for a broken heart. It’s always better to hold a little back for yourself.

She completely used Ryan Seacrest to better her status in Hollywood

If you don’t believe that, then you don’t live on this planet

Don’t feel empathy for her

@ace11: Come on! Ryan Seacrest is almost 40 years old ( too old for her, BTW). To say he is some naive child that was used is ridiculous. Besides, he controlled her and steered her into the wrong projects. She was only 21 I think when they started dating. If anybody was being used, it was her.

@ace11: Ah, poor, poor little Ryan Seacrest. The guy has a net worth of over $250 million, a lot of it coming from the Kardashian horror we all see. If you are trying to make us feel sorry for him, you are failing.

The photographer got some fantastic shots!

@ace11: You Seacrest fans don’t do him any favors trying to make people feel sorry for him. It just makes him even more annoying.

I love Julianne. She is my favorite dancer. The pictures are gorgeous!

I didn’t even know she and Ryan broke up!

I love the outfit she is wearing in the cover photo!
