EXCLUSIVE: Kelly Ripa’s Rep Responds To Reports Ripa Is Upset With Seacrest
Since Ryan Seacrest joined Live! as Kelly Ripa‘s new co-host, a slew of rumors have been floating around that not all is calm on the Live! front. Specifically, various rumors have surfaced that Ripa is upset with Seacrest and unhappy with rumors he may return to the reincarnated American Idol which will be on ABC.
We reached out to one of Ripa’s representatives to get to the bottom of the rumors and find out exactly what’s going on.
“She is having the best time with Ryan and truly feels she has a partner in her co-host,” her rep exclusively told us.
They added that, “Should IDOL happen, she feels Ryan Seacrest is the heart and soul of American Idol and therefore she’s 100% on board.”
We appreciate Ripa’s representative clarifying the situation for us, and this should put to bed any rumors that have popped up. For what it’s worth, we feel Seacrest is doing a great job as her co-host and the two have great on-screen chemistry, making for a natural fit.
