100 Days of Jules, Day 95: Cellphone Usage Was A Problem In Julianne’s Marriage

Am I on to something?

Here is where I attempt to blog about Julianne Hough for 100 days straight. This was inspired by Allie Jones’ 500 blogs on Kristin Cavallari, a much funnier read.

Before they announced they were separating, Julianne Hough and her estranged husband Brooks Laich were vocal about their “no cellphone in the bedroom” rule.

While Julianne was on Brooks’ podcast How Men Think, Brooks opened up about his disdain for cellphones in the bedroom.

“Sometimes if you come to bed and then I’m waiting in bed and you’re like, ‘OK, one second’ and you’re like sending an email or you’re checking an Instagram or something and then sometimes you’ve said, ‘OK, I’m done,’ and you plug in your phone and then you roll over to me… I’m like, ‘OK, well, I just waited for my wife. I’m second in line to her phone or what she’s sending?'” Laich said, according to ET Online. “I really take that deeply, like, that’s deep cut for me. We’ve worked on that and I’ve voiced that. Nobody’s perfect.”

It sounds like this was a problem in their relationship. It’s no surprise that Julianne, who is constantly updating her Instagram, probably took her cellphone to the bedroom one too many times for Brooks’ liking because during that same podcast episode, Julianne admitted she falls short on that front sometimes. “I think we’re on the phone a lot, and that five minutes that I come home and I’m on my phone and I don’t give you presence or you don’t give me presence, it sets the tone for the rest of the evening,” she said.
Brooks showed his problem with this in a YouTube video about the couple cooking together on his YouTube channel. While Brooks is talking to the cameraman about cooking with Julianne, Julianne stands there looking at her phone. 
“Hello,” Brooks says to Julianne while she ignores him. “Clearly. Clearly a bonding thing, eh.”
