Derek Hough: Julianne is doing great

Julianne Hough is doing “fantastic” in the wake of her break-up from Ryan Seacrest, according to her brother.

The 24-year-old dancer-turned-actress and 38-year-old American Idol host-and-television producer Ryan are believed to have called off their three-year relationship.

Julianne was said to have been devastated by the split.

But her brother Derek told US news programme Extra she is just fine and is focusing on her career.

“She is doing great. I was with her the other night she is doing fantastic… she wants to get back into dancing,” he said.

Derek fell short of confirming Julianne might consider a return to America’s Dancing with the Stars.

But expressing her emotions through movement will undoubtedly play a large part in her future professional endeavours.

“Not sure about the show, but she wants to dance. She’s like, ‘I need to dance. I am a dancer, I love it’,’” Derek explained.

Julianne and Ryan have yet to publicly address the alleged split.

A source told Us Weekly Ryan’s hectic schedule had been pulling the pair apart.

"I think this is for good. They both just sort of knew they couldn't do it anymore,” an insider said. "He never sleeps! It's a lifestyle she couldn't handle anymore."

Julianne over the weekend made what appeared to be a cryptic reference to her ex as she enjoyed a day at the beach with her girlfriends in Los Angeles.

“Beachin' with my b***hes... @riawnacapri @morganbeau @ninadobrev and Jill #friendsarethebesttherapy, (sic)” she mused on Saturday.

Accompanying the tweet was a link to an Instagram photo of Julianne smiling at the beach with actress Nina Dobrev, stylist Riawna Capri and their other gal pals.
