Is Ryan Seacrest truly going to bail on Kelly Ripa and “Live” and move back to the West Coast complete-time? That is the claim in a single of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop can exclusively right this inaccurate and unoriginal story.
According to Life & Style, a small much more than a year and a half immediately after moving from Los Angeles to New York for the chance to co-host “Live” with Ripa, Seacrest is strongly pondering about “bailing on their morning show” and “blindsiding” her. To make it appear like it has exclusive scoop, the magazine quotes what it terms an “insider” as saying, “[Seacrest] misses his life on the West Coast.” The alleged supply notes Ripa would be “devastated” if he quit and lately “flat-out asked him if he planned to leave.”
Gossip Cop is going to quit right here and point out that if Ripa’s supposedly asking Seacrest if he’s going to stroll away from the morning show, then how specifically would he be “blindsiding” her, as alleged. The magazine then acknowledges how the “homesick” Seacrest has a contract. Generally, that is the outlet way of covering itself when he does not leave “Live.”
Nonetheless, considering that the short article is fully manufactured, and the publication seems to want to play any angle it can, it has its anonymous tipster add that, although Seacrest signed a deal, “contracts have been produced to be broken.” To recap, the tabloid contends Ripa asked Seacrest if he’s leaving, but nevertheless somehow she’ll be blindsided when he quits. It also says Seacrest can not bail on “Live” for the reason that he has a contract, but he could do that anyway. The truth, even so, coming straight from Seacrest’s camp is that Life & Style’s whole story is “not accurate.”
To say the tabloid has a terrible track record with Seacrest would be an understatement. Almost two years ago, Gossip Cop busted the magazine when it ran a piece that falsely maintained Ripa and Seacrest have been feuding and their “honeymoon” was more than. At the time, a rep for the show known as the claim untrue and, of course, the two co-hosts have continued operating nicely collectively.
Following that inaccurate report, the exact same outlet asserted Ripa wanted to replace Seacrest with Jerry O’Connell as her “Live” co-host. Once again, although the publication hid behind an unnamed and untraceable “source,” Ripa’s rep went on the record with Gossip Cop to shoot down the story. The reality is each Seacrest and Ripa delight in co-hosting the very rated morning show collectively. Seacrest, who’s also the show’s executive producer, has no plans to bail on Ripa and permanently go back to California.
