Dim the lights: The next couple going home – but not together – is … Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest! The actress and former Dancing with the Stars pro, 25, had been dating the American Idol host and media mogul, who turns 39 on Dec. 24, for two years before they split in March. Pre-breakup, Hough told Parade that juggling two busy careers and a relationship "is a hard thing to do, especially when you're so caught up in your work and bettering yourself. I think at the end of the day you have to find a balance with what's really important."
