Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough broke up over the weekend, and boy, did people have a lot to say about it. While the longtime twosome never seemed to inspire much enthusiasm when they were together, once they broke up everyone had something to say about the man that brought us the Kardashians and the girl from Footloose.

This apparent newfound interest is great for Hough. The former Dancing with the Stars dancer has seen her star rapidly rise over the three-year relationship, most recently starring in Safe Haven (which made over 66 million dollars at the box office last month). Up next on her plate is Diablo Cody’s Paradise, about a young conservative woman who has a crisis of faith after a plane crash. The movie will also reunite Hough with Rock of Ages co-star Russell Brand.

Who knows? Maybe this break up will give Hough the inspiration she needs to return to country music (She doesn’t just cover ’80s hits!). New record or not, Hough will be just fine — — just check out the beach photos she instagrammed with Nina Dobrev over the weekend.
