Ryan has been a red carpet staple for years: he's a crucial part of E!'s award season coverage, so when asked whether he would represent E! this year despite the controversy, a rep for the network said "of course he is" still hosting the red carpet pre-show. (She took a photo.) The Variety story was published after E! had completed its "internal investigation" exonerating Seacrest, and it seems pitched to dispute that investigation's conclusion that evidence was lacking.

His former E! News stylist Suzie Hardy told Variety she suffered years of unwanted sexual aggression from Seacrest, who she says groped her and slapped her rear end.

"It's business as usual", offered an E! spokesperson on Sunday morning "As always, we tape multiple sources of content simultaneously to deliver the best possible show, and there are often brief delays between interviews". After all, couldn't you just see someone like Reese Witherspoon or Natalie Portman asking Seacrest about his own sexual misconduct allegations on the live show?

"Live with Kelly and Ryan" has announced several of the guests who will be joining Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest for "Live's After Oscar Show", airing live on Monday, March 5, at 9 a.m.


Page Six reported last week that publicists were privately saying that they would steer many of their stars away from talking to him.

In December, then-E! host Catt Sadler announced she was leaving the network, largely because she was only being paid half the salary of her male co-star and her requests for a raise were denied once she discovered that.

The unnamed source said: "If it was a [client who had been involved in the #MeToo movement], I would never put them in that position". "We shouldn't have to make those choices of, 'Do we or don't we?'" "I was emboldened by the bravery of others to finally and confidentially tell my story to NBC".

She alleges that the TV presenter engaged in various forms of misconduct from 2007 to 2010; he adamantly denies the claims. "I think it is scary, you know". "I eagerly participated in the investigation in order to demonstrate my innocence because I know my truth, and I believe in due process". According to Deadline, Hardy underwent years of harassment while she worked with Seacrest. I am not a judge. "I am not a jury ... that is where this stuff gets tricky".
