Kelly Ripa reacts to allegations against co-host Ryan Seacrest


"With Kelly and Ryan" co-host Kelly Ripa has jumped to his defence, praising him as a "professional" and a "great person". Ripa jokingly replied, "You are happiness wrapped in chocolate - so there!"

She added, "I was emboldened by the bravery of others to finally and confidentially tell my story to NBC". I can do that.

It's not clear if Ripa was trying to bring attention to the sexual harrassment allegations made by Hardy, which have not been addressed by the hosts prior to Wednesday, or if she was just making an ill-timed joke.

Seacrest, 43, has denied claims he sexually harassed his former stylist.

"You are happiness", Seacrest told his co-host. With Kelly and Ryan. "It shows there are some serious cracks in their relationship". 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?

Suzie claimed that the situation only ended in 2013, when she reported Ryan to human resources ex ecutives and her employment was terminated.

Liverpool are now third in the Premier League, two points behind second-placed Manchester United . "Of course we can stay there". It was just a good game and we were really hard to play today, I would say.

Back in November, Ryan was accused of sexual misconduct by an anonymous E! employee.

But an E! spokesperson has defended the process, describing it as "comprehensive and thorough".

News, Suzie Hardy, accused Seacrest of sexual harassment and abuse after she began working for him 2007.

Seacrest also will remain as host of American Idol when it returns March 11 on ABC, and he is continuing to co-host, with Kelly Ripa, their daily talk show, Live with Kelly and Ryan. "Any claims that question the legitimacy of this investigation are completely baseless".

"Yesterday, Variety published a salacious story that revealed the specific claims against me for the first time - even though an independent third-party investigator found insufficient evidence to support the claims". He has not been to trial for anything, I am not a judge. The Oscar victor also brought up the issue of Catt Sadler, who left E! after discovering she was being paid significantly less than co-anchor Jason Kennedy.

Ryan Seacrest attends the 89th Annual Academy Awards, Feb. 26, 2017, in Hollywood, California. I have always had a problem with the Fashion Police. "I don't know. that is where this stuff gets tricky". There was a time they were... they were just mean about people's bodies, things you shouldn't say'. "Yet, I knew, regardless of the confidence I had that there was no merit to the allegations, my name would likely soon appear on the lists of those suspected of despicable words and deeds".
