Time to talk it out! Ten months after ending their relationship, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough reunited at the CAA and Moet Pre-Golden Globes party at Soho House in West Hollywood on Friday, Jan. 10. Rather than avoid each other, the exes shared a conversation and appeared to be friendly.
"It sounded like tonight was the first night they spoke in a year," an eyewitness tells Us Weekly.
Seacrest, 39, and Hough, 25, shared a quiet conversation together in a back garden at around midnight. The onlooker tells Us that Seacrest stared intently at Hough during their talk. The twosome met up again nearly an hour later and chatted again.
The potentially awkward run-in between the exes appeared to go well. Hough, who attended the party with pal Nina Dobrev, was heard complimenting Seacrest on his coverage of the Globes for E! last year. The onlooker also tells Us that the American Idol host invited Hough and Dobrev to his friend's house for an after party.
After more than two years of dating, Seacrest and Hough called it quits in March 2013. "Honestly, their schedules were too hectic," a source told Us at the time. "It just got to be too much. I think they both just sort of knew they couldn't do it anymore. The travel and lifestyle got to be too much."
Since the breakup, Seacrest has been rumored to be dating model Shayna Terese Taylor. The two were photographed together on vacation in Uruguay in November. Hough, meanwhile, has been spotted enjoying time with girlfriends like Dobrev, who also went single last year following her own split from Vampire Diaries costar Ian Somerhalder.
