Blind Items Revealed #3

May 19, 2017

Took about two weeks for this A list host to start making noises about taking over the show where he is now and making it a solo thing or bringing in the co-host he wants.

Ryan Seacrest

When Kelly Let-er-Rippa threw her weight around last year over her then co-host and made all those demands, I knew she was on her way out of there. Media men don't like taking orders from women. Only Barbara Walters got away with that. She'll end up with a talk show on radio somewhere. Hope she's saving her $.

Ryan is used to being in charge.
He's made zillions from being in charge.
Sorry, Kelly, you are NOT in his future plans!

Now if he could use that leverage to cancel all things K Klan the world would be a better place.

I don't believe this. He's close friends with Kelly. I think they'd should've chose Jerry O'Connell. He was great, super funny and engaged the audience. I get why they picked Seacrest and he's fine but I love Jerry. Kelly will be fine either way. And yes, she'd better save her $$. Her and hubby spend a LOT thinking her cash cow will never end. I read an article about it where they said she'd be broke if she had been fired last year. Life lessons.

He is executive producer and makes most of the money from those trashy shows. why would he cancel them?
and I totally believe he'll get rid of Ripper if she annoys him

I couldn't imagine a show with just Ryan. Does he have visions of competing with Andy Cohen? Because that's what it looks like. He doesn't have Andy's charisma.

Not sure in what way you are referring to him competing with Cohen but Cohen can only dream of being in Seacrest's shoes. Seacrest is a mogul. Net worth of $350 million, income of $65 mill/year. Cohen has net worth of $15mill. Cohen has his cute little WWHL show and has a nifty little production deal at BRAVO but compared to Seacrest he is peanuts. Not sure why he even wants to be part of Kelly show but probably part of his bigger plan of world domination. The whole blind is bs. If he wanted his own am talk show he would have it. I think he probably has some deal with Kelly to cohost for a year or two before he moves on to whatever is next in his plan. Kelly loves it because then she gets to go through another year of guest cohost's and 'guess of I'm going to chose' which I think she loves.

I thought the whole point of Ryan getting the job was because the network wants to dump her & they're counting on him being his normal, control freak self to drive her crazy enough to throw another tantrum & they can fire her.

Ryan is good friends with Kelly. When will you stop posting lies?

Sarah said...

I'm not buying this. Ryan could easily have his own morning show if he just called a network and pitched it. I'm thinking he just wants to do this with Kelly for a few years then move on to the next thing.
