Et tu, Seacrest? Does it surprise anyone that Ryan Seacrest is the proactive sort? That whole “frosted tips/I swear I’m totally straight/Chillin’ while hostin’/ dude-bro” thing is obviously just a veneer. Inside he’s actually a Type A personality, choking on repressed anger and so laser-focused on his career that Richwood Pharmaceuticals used his blood samples to make the prototype for Adderall! Variety reports that Seacrest didn’t wait for E! to find out if an alleged impending sexual harassment claim against him is valid or not. He’s already apologized in a statement released on Friday. Sort of.
Variety says that there was an “incident” involving Ryan and a stylist who worked at E! News. The alleged incident happened about ten years ago. There’s no details of it yet.
Ryan basically filled out the “Apologizing For Sexual Harassment While Not Admitting It” form apology that most L.A. attorneys have probably added to their websites in recent weeks. In the statement he released yesterday, Ryan jumped from “sorry bout it’ if it happened” to “I’m probably going to sue you, bitch” in picoseconds.
Recently, someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me nearly a decade ago at E! News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her,” Seacrest said in a statement Friday. “If I made her feel anything but respected, I am truly sorry. I dispute these reckless allegations and I plan to cooperate with any corporate inquiries that may result.
I apologize for you being a reckless liar-teller, lady! Ryan went on to declaim himself a model of gallantry in the workplace.
Throughout my 25 years in the entertainment industry, the majority of my co-workers have been women, and I’ve endeavored to foster a positive work environment of mutual respect and courtesy, as that’s how I believe it should be.
Describing himself as “distraught” over someone calling his squeaky-clean image into question, He says that he’s “proud of his workplace reputation” and that his “track record speaks for itself.”
Yeah, right. He’s totally that guy in the office who takes at least five of the giant chocolate chip M&M cookies left over from the client meeting that someone put out at the front desk. And he thinks you don’t see him. LIES. Your workplace reputation is built on LIES. E! is reportedly conducting an internal investigation of the host of everything.
There’s an easy way for Seacrest to get out from under the accusation. He just has to point out that it came from a woman. I kid, I kid!
