Ryan Seacrest is set to interview celebrities on the Oscars red carpet again but this year something is different, and it makes him really nervous. As you probably already know the Live! co-host has been involved in a sexual misconduct scandal.
We have previously learned that not all of the stars who will be in attendance at the big event are willing to answer Ryan’s questions despite the fact that E! concluded there is no proof he sexually harassed former stylist Suzie Hardy for years.
One insider has told us that ‘Ryan’s nervous but optimistic over his Oscars red carpet work. This is a different feeling for Ryan; he hasn’t felt this anxious since his very first red carpet years ago. He has many close relationships in Hollywood, and he’s hoping people will continue to treat him with the respect he has always given to everyone he interviews on the red carpet.’
We know that a lot of publicists are actually encouraging their clients in the industry to avoid Seacrest.
As a result, ‘Ryan’s softening a lot of the questions he’d planned for the red carpet. Because of some of the allegations against him, Ryan’s going to be careful to avoid certain hot topics. He is rehearsing delicate phrases to help him navigate any sensitive situation that may arise. It’s going to be a tense night for Ryan, but he’s determined to persevere, move forward and put this whole nasty episode behind him.’
We know at least one celebrity who will definitely speak to Ryan at the Oscars, and that is Jimmy Kimmel!
‘Listen, you know, we should at least afford people the opportunity for truth, what the facts of the story are before hanging them out to dry,’ the man explained.
