  • Kelly Ripa Reportedly Livid Over Ryan Seacrest Scandal: They 'Oversell Their Friendship'

And Lawrence likely wouldn't be the only one to avoid Seacrest: Hollywood publicists cited by Page Six have suggested they'll be steering many clients, particularly those involved with the #MeToo movement, away from speaking with Seacrest.

Kelly Ripa took a moment Thursday to let everyone know exactly how she feels about her Live With Kelly and Ryan co-star Ryan Seacrest, who recently was accused of sexual harassment and assault by a former co-worker.

Seacrest has strenuously denied the allegations made against him by Suzie Hardy and an investigation into the matter has already been dismissed on the grounds of insufficient evidence. In a statement to THR an E! spokesperson said that the delay was "business as usual". Her lawyer said Seacrest had asked her inappropriate sexual questions, slapped her buttocks, given her a bear hug while wearing only his underwear, "forced himself on top" of her and grabbed her crotch. As of now, the entertainment industry is still unsure on whether to allow Seacrest to continue his obligations as radio host and, more importantly, his coverage duties for the upcoming Oscars.

Kelly has defended her co-host - who has repeatedly denied the allegations - in front of the cameras. I am not a judge. "I don't know. that is where this stuff gets tricky".

Again, we'll see if anything major comes down in the next couple hours, but regardless, the fact that we're even here means Seacrest is in a much different spot than he's ever ben through his previously-professional career.

Neither Kellly or Ryan's reps have spoken out, but one source noted that their friendship has made this whole thing very hard. "I just want to clarify that anyone who uses my quote going forward is using the quote of an uninformed person and fanning the flames of a non-story by making use of an unwitting accomplice". The network's second screen live coverage on the E!

E! also faced controversy with its red-carpet coverage at the Golden Globes last month, where Debra Messing, Eva Longoria and other stars called out the network over former host Catt Sadler's claims about pay inequality at the network.
