Ryan Seacrest was toasted by his friends and colleagues last night at LA's Promise 2011 Gala. The TV personality had his girlfriend Julianne Hough by his side at the event, which featured a special performance of Cirque du Soleil's show IRIS. Ryan was spotlighted for his work with the nonprofit LA's Promise, which serves middle- and high-school students in South LA, during the fundraising celebration. His American Idol costar Randy Jackson was there to help recognize Ryan's efforts, as was Ashton Kutcher and Modern Family's Julie Bowen. Ashton, whose Two and a Half Men debut aired last week, gave a speech and shared some advice from his father at the gala, which Ryan later applauded on Twitter. Ryan was the man of the evening last night, but he and Julianne will trade spots in the spotlight early next month when her movie Footloose hits theaters on Oct. 14.
