Blind Items Revealed #28

January 23, 2019

In order to keep his deal hosting that end of the year special, this frequent host/mogul had to agree to a commitment of several million dollars of fake calls that he uses for various segments that the parent company of the show he hosts at the end of the year, owns. Those fake calls are generally the ones where there are jilted lovers or fake adultery or anything else that is well outside the norm of what you expect from morning shows.

Ryan Seacrest/Dick Clark Productions (Ryan's Roses, etc.)

What a tool

For the DC area folks - this must be where the Kane Show got War of the Roses. Same plot and those have to be fake.

War of the Roses must be a national thing. We have it in Boston, too.

Yeah, War of the Roses segments are done on radio shows across the country. So I’m not really sure how they’re “outside the norm of what you’d expect” when they’re so common. And how are “several million dollars” of fake calls quantified? This seems like a pretty standard contractual obligation, no different than a record label requiring an R&B album have at least one “quiet storm” track so that it can reach more audiences.

The several millions of fake calls are because they use the same couples in each city. So chances are the couple you heard in Boston is the same in Chicago. I used to work for clear channel (now iheartradio) back in the day and it’s all outsourced to voice actors or dj’s

I thought Seacrest is gay? WTH. I know for a fact you have called him "bearded" here before.


ugh.

Commit to fake calls? As in being the actor's voice in them? Hosting segments about them? I don't get this one.
