Ryan Seacrest and his ex-girlfriend Julianne Hough reportedly reunited at a pre-Golden Globes party and appeared to engage in a friendly conversation that eventually led to partying together after the awards show.
The pair had been spotted quietly talking in a back garden at around midnight at Soho House's CAA and Moet Pre-Golden Globes party in West Hollywood on Friday, Us Weeklyreported.
"It sounded like tonight was the first night they spoke in a year," an eyewitness told Us at the time.
TheAmerican Idol host, 39, reportedly "stared intently" at Hough, 25, as they spoke. After wrapping it up, the pair allegedly met up again about an hour later to continue their chat and it progressed to the point where Seacrest invited the former Dancing with the Stars pro and her best friend Nina Dobrev to his buddy's after-party.
Hough and Dobrev hopped on the opportunity and chose to attend the after-party, and according to Us, Hough was overheard complimenting Seacrest's coverage of the awards ceremony last year for E!.
Reports Seacrest and Hough called it quits after nearly three years of dating first surfaced in March 2013, when the pair had decided to "take a break" and end their living-together arrangement.
Heavy work schedules made it difficult for Seacrest and the actress to maintain their relationship, according to People sources, but they had intended to remain friends.
Seacrest has since been rumored to be dating Shayna Terese Taylor, a 38-year-old blonde model, personal trainer and New Mexico native who is currently living in the Los Angeles area. In Touch Weekly reported in June 2013 that Seacrest was datingSports Illustrated model Dominique Piek.
