Kelly Ripa Allegedly Blindsided By Real Reason Ryan Seacrest Was Hired For Live!





Kelly Ripa has allegedly been blindsided by the real reason ABC hired Ryan Seacrest to co-host Live!. It turns out that the network may have had an ulterior motive in signing Ryan onto the longtime talkshow.

A source tells Radar Online that Kelly Ripa was under the impression that Ryan Seacrest was hired because he would “bring in a list of guests and ratings” for Live!, but found out it was all part of a plan by ABC. As the network bids to bring back American Idol, it’s plotting to get Seacrest on the prime time show.

“It’s like Kelly has been betrayed all over again. Ryan wasn’t her first choice, but she was convinced by the network that he would bring in a list of guests and ratings. Now she has found out that it is all about Idol and not really just about her!”

The insider adds that Live! makes ABC a lot of money, but it doesn’t hold a candle to what prime time programs bring in. If ABC can get American Idol and have Ryan Seacrest host the show, they’ll be right where they want to be. The source says it’s like ABC is betraying Kelly Ripa all over again.
