We have learned that E! execs had an emergency meeting in order to decide what to do about Ryan Seacrest. The Live! co-host was snubbed by a few very important stars on the Oscars red carpet because of his sexual harassment scandal!
As you may know already, the man is currently involved in a huge sexual misconduct scandal which started with his former stylist accusing him of harassing her for years!
‘The execs are in panic mode, and Ryan knows they simply cannot afford to lose fans or ratings over this! They’re considering replacing him on the red carpet, at least for the near future,’ one insider explained.
Even though Ryan has denied former stylist Suzie Hardy’s accusations and E! was unable to find any proof against him, at the Oscars, the man was snubbed by a number of A-list names, including all of the nominees in the Best Actress category.
‘Of course Ryan is devastated. He wasn’t able to get interviews with so many of the huge celebrities that he is used to getting. He’s starting to realize how much this is impacting his reputation,’ the source went on.
Meanwhile, we have also heard that ABC execs are just as worried Seacrest’s damaged reputation might affect their ratings.
Ryan is hosting the network’s American Idol reboot.
‘Producers are freaking out because they don’t want people to tune out or boycott the show due to Ryan hosting. The problem’s that he’s already so ingrained in the show and its entire production.’
What do you think they should do about Ryan Seacrest? Will the man be able to fully clear his name?
