Julianne Hough on her 'great' relationship with Seacrest

No wonder these two are always all smiles: Julianne Hough tells Parade that her romance with "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest is going swimmingly.

Although they're both have packed schedules, Hough says they figure out ways to make it work.

"It's a hard thing to do, especially when you're so caught up in your work and bettering yourself," the 23-year-old says.

"It does get hard, because you're so focused on that, but I think at the end of the day you have to find a balance with what's really important," she continues. "I'm so lucky to have a great relationship. I'm very blessed and I don't take anything for granted."

And if she ever misses him, she can always catch him on the tube - especially now that "Idol" is back on.

"Heck yes," she watches him every week, Hough tells Parade. "And it is so good. I love this season!"

The much-discussed "roommate agreement" between Sheldon and Leonard was brought to an end on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory" (and just in time for the show's biggest ratings ever, according to CBS).

Leonard was tired of adhering to it, and thus the two were merely acquaintances, exchanging the occasional "'Sup?"
