Who needs a boyfriend when you've got girlfriends like these?
On the heels of her split with Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough is definitely not hiding at home on the couch with a pint of ice cream. On Sunday, the 24-year-old Safe Haven star was front and center courtside at L.A.'s Staples Center with pal Nina Dobrev to cheer on the Lakers as they played the Sacramento Kings.
In her first big public outing since Friday's news hit, the former Dancing with the Stars pro was all smiles in a sweet casual outfit: White lace blouse, khaki jacket, skinny black jeans and ankle boots. Also joined by Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, Hough and the Vampire Diaries star, 24, sipped iced drinks as they smiled, clapped and checked out the sights inside the arena.
Hough, who dated the American Idol judge, 38, for two years, has been posting words of inspiration on her Instagram since, including one snap of a quote she stumbled upon on a blackboard at a Coffee Bean on Friday, March 15.
"I can't tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone," the Ed Sheeran quote read.
"Love when these things catch your eyes int he most unexpected places," she captioned the photo.
"It Gets Better," she wrote in another post.
Late last year, she opened up about finding love with her first celebrity crush - Seacrest.
Hough and the American Idol host reportedly split after more than two years of dating because of their conflicting schedules.
"He never sleeps!" one source tells Us of Seacrest's demanding work schedule. The Idol host also has his own radio show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest, and holds red carpet duties throughout the year. "It's a lifestyle she couldn't handle anymore."
"I think this is for good," another pal tells Us of the pair calling it quits. "They both just sort of knew they couldn't do it anymore."
Hang in there girl.
