Why Did Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough Break Up?

We’re still in shock! After hearing the news yesterday, we’re still trying to figure out what happened and asking ourselves the question: Why did Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough break up?

Only a few weeks ago, Ryan and Julianne wedding rumors were all the rage. Everyone was speculating on when the couple, who acted so gushingly in love, would finally tie the knot. On Friday, all the fantasies of what a Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest wedding might look like were smashed when the golden duo announced they had split.

But why did the American Idol 2013 host and the Dancing With the Stars two-time pro champion break up? According to People, Ryan and Julianne reportedly felt like the difficulty of keeping their relationship going with extremely hectic schedules was just too overwhelming. “It just got to be too much,” a source close to the couple reportedly told Us Weekly. “I think they both just sort of knew they couldn’t do it anymore.

Ryan Seacrest is currently in the midst of hosting American Idol Season 12, as well as helming a variety of other entertainment projects, including his long-running No. 1 nationally syndicated radio show. Julianne Hough left Dancing With the Stars in 2008 to pursue her dual love of acting and singing. She recently starred in the film Safe Haven, has another film in the works with director Diablo Cody, and just launched the Julianne Hough for Sole Society capsule fashion collection.

Busy schedules can be hard to manage, but if a couple is really in love, it seems they would find some way to make it work. We don’t really buy into those rumors that secretly, Ryan Seacrest is gay and Julianne was just his beard — although in Hollywood, you just never know!
