Honestly, who picks people up from “Dancing With The Stars”? The only people who watch that show are the families of the has-been’s who are in it. Excepting of course, people who have a genuine interest in watching has been’s look like idiots. Which you know, I could be all for, depending. Anyway, Kevin Connolly seems to be going after Julianne Hough, who was supposedly engaged at one point. There are rumours that the two were dating, but the Dancing With The Stars “person”, Julianne, –stars aren’t on that show, I refuse to call them that,– denied those rumours, and possibly shot down Kevin‘s little crush on her. From People:
“Dancing with the Stars pro Julianne Hough shot down rumors Monday night that she and Entourage star Kevin Connolly are dating.
“No, no, no” Hough adamantly told PEOPLE. “We’re just friends.”
The blonde-haired season four Dancing champ says she and Connolly met and “talk on the phone a lot. But we’re just friends.”
Connolly, 33, confirmed this to Howard Stern Monday, though he couldn’t help but gush about the 19-year-old beauty. Connolly was on Stern’s radio show with Entourage costar Adrian Grenier to promote the new Entourage coffee table book. The two met, Connolly says, 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 DWTS taping.
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.
Upon hearing Connolly’s remarks, Hough told PEOPLE, “Aw. That’s really sweet. That’s very flattering. But we’re just friends.””
I think what Hough means is, “He’s a stalker! And he’s old! Ew!” But then again, he could mean “actively pursuing” in other ways, that don’t involve collecting her trash, or calling her all the time and hanging up. Maybe he licks her steering wheel instead.
