It’s no secret that “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest’s girlfriend Julianne Hough was harboring a crush on contestant Phillip Phillips. After Phillip performed on April 25th, Ryan called Julianne out for her crush — on national television. After the judges’ commentary on Phillip’s Dave Matthews Band cover of “The Stone”, Ryan put it all out there.
Ryan said that his girlfriend was watching Phillip backstage. He told the audience, “I think she sighed and blushed and said, ‘Yummy’.” She was laughing backstage when the cameras panned to her and he added, “We’ll be having this conversation after the show darling.”
After telling Ryan that he wasn’t trying to steal his girl, he took to Twitter to say this to Julianne: “@juliannehough hahahah it was soo funny when ryan called you out last night, i didnt excpect that! haha”.
Now, it appears that in the wake of the hilarity, Ryan is getting serious about asking Julianne to be his wife. They have been dating for two years and the “Idol” host said, “It’s something we talk about. On our anniversary night we talked about the things that we’d done that year. I think I did everything right! We wouldn’t televise our wedding.”
Of course all of that didn’t stop Ryan for faking a proposal on Wednesday night’s show. We thought he was going to pop the question right then. Instead, he wanted her to give a note to Tom Cruise. Meh.
