Oh, no! Even though Ryan Seacrest is one of the most desired bachelors in the world, Corky Ballas is nervous that he’s not the right guy for his friend, Julianne Hough!

This season of Dancing With The Stars has had the show’s resident dancers showing their not-so-nice sides. First, Maksim Chmerkovskiy was in an uproar over Carrie Ann Inaba‘s harsh judgement call. Now, Corky Ballas is admitting his true feelings about former DWTS pro (and his protege) Julianne Hough’s blossoming relationship with Ryan Seacrest – and they aren’t so positive!

“I’m like her second father,” Corky, 49, told HollywoodLife.com at the GLSEN Respect Awards in Beverly Hills Oct. 8. about his relationship with the 22-year-old dancer.

And in typical father/daughter fashion, Corky is protective of Julianne — and gave us his two cents about her romantic relationship with Ryan Seacrest.

“I don’t think anything of it,” he says. “Someone is 22-years-old. I think it’s kinda silly to get too deep into a relationship so young.”

Julianne and Ryan have been an item since the beginning of summer. Ryan has worked hard to sweep Julianne off her feet. His courting has included a $50,000 dinner, a trip to Italy and an introduction to his parents. Ryan finally admitted to being a couple on the Ellen Degeneres Show in September, but it’s a relationship Corky doesn’t think she should fall into so fast.

Ryan is handsome, successful and talented — should Corky be a little less concerned for his favorite student?

Who cares what Corky thinks …. if enjoy being with each other so be it.

Sounds more like jealously more than anything

..and why not? because of age?? I think Ryan is a great guy and very clever……let them have it together …and let time show how they do?… Corky should pay more attention to what he is showing on the floor with Florence, it is embarresing moments out there …..he should show more style in a classy way, – you dont need to go “under the belt” like that, it is not funny and not at all good looking!

I wasn’t aware it was any of Corky’s business. Maybe he should STFU next time. It’s Julianne’s life not his.

I wasn’t aware that Corky Ballas belonged to a messageboard and only wanted JH with Apolo Ohno. The theory that it is only those fans who don’t think much of this relationship with Ryan Seacrest is obviously off the mark.

I think most rational people would see a red flag to a 35 year old entertainment mogul dating a 22 year old.

Met Ryan a few years ago, he seemed really gracious to his fans and even though he is really busy, he takes time for the things that matter most to him. The fact that he has taken time off for Julianne speaks volumes. Yeah, those so-called fans of Julianne who want her only with Apolo (and therefore starts trashing anyone Julianne is linked to) need to get a life.

I think they’re great together. She needs someone who is grounded and mature, who can have fun and let loose. I think they’re a perfect couple. The only people who disagree are those faniacs who want her to marry Apolo Ono. Some people and their messages boards need to get over it already!

Julianne Hough always seems to get involved too deeply too quickly with her relationships. She was first engaged at 18. She and the country singer guy she was dating were talking engagement and marriage shortly after they were dating. I think she likes all the publicity her personal life gets even though she seems to be trying a different approach with Ryan Seacrest. Seems like he’s orchestrating her publicity now. Seems she’ll do anything for her career. She’ll live and learn.
