In November 2009, Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough split up after a 15-month relationship that included an 18-episode stint on 'Dancing With the Stars.' At the time, they said they needed to focus on their careers, and Hough began spending more time in Los Angeles. Somewhere along the way, Ryan Seacrest became her new main squeeze.

In interviews, Hough has admitted that the 'American Idol' host openly flirted with her while she and Wicks were on his radio show. It worked. They started dating just months after her break with the 'Stealing Cinderella' singer.
