Julianne Hough: Not Dating Kevin Connolly

by at . Comments

Julianne Hough has a message for viewers: She's just friends with Entourage star Kevin Connolly.

The season four Dancing With the Stars champion told People magazine she and Connolly met and "talk on the phone a lot. But we're just friends."

Connolly confirmed this to Howard Stern Monday, though he couldn't help but gush about the 19-year-old beauty. The two met at L.A. hot spot Hyde.

Since then, Connolly told Stern he's "actively pursuing" Hough and talks to her practically every day. He even went to see her perform at a Dancing with the Stars taping.

The man is dedicated.

Connolly says he considers Hough "a 15" on his scale, a score that takes into account her flawless looks and infectious personality. Connolly encouraged Stern's listeners to vote for Julianne.

"Aw. That's really sweet. That's very flattering. But we're just friends," Hough said when told of Connolly's comments.

Kali Shan you give it up to easy. You shouldn't put Julianne at your level.

Are you serious??? How could you turn down Kevin Connolly and say that you two are just friends? Are you literally that stupid or just too young to realize that you let the most perfect man slip right by you? I've had a crush on him forever... if I was in your shoes I wouldn't have pushed him away like that. Kevin is such an awesome, kind, care-free, sweet, handsome guy. Well since you don't want him, feel free to send him to Rhode Island! Most girls would be so envious of you- I'm just shocked and a little disappointed!!

Julianne Hough accepted an 18 cart and diamond ring from Kevin Connolly. Was this before or after she humiliated him in public? What type of game is she playing? It was bad enough rejecting him in public, instead of letting him down easy in private, but why accept a ring and wear in on tv? Are you playing games or in it for the fame and glory?

Julianne...
You could do worse than Kevin Connolly.
Way to chase the guy away with the "just friends" statement. Could you be even more cruel in public? You definitely are 19 and show it in the insensitive way you handled this situation. You could have played it more coy and talked to Kevin later about what happened. Let him retrack the statement himself if it was false.
Kevin Connolly seems like a really nice down to earth guy. I agree with Peggy O. Keep looking, Kevin. She's out there for you.

Kevin Connolly went to a taping of Dancing with The Stars. I would have liked to see that. Curious as to how he looked watching Julianne Hough.
The way a guy watches a girl says a lot about how they feel about them.
I hope he wasn't leering.

Kevin Connolly is adsolutely adorable and any girl would be lucky to have him. He is a very supportive and dedicated boyfriend, and would love to be in a relationship right now.
I hope Kevin Connolly did not scare Julianne Hough away by dishing dirt about their budding relationship on Howard Stern of all places.
Good luck, Kevin. I hope you find a nice girl soon.
