Ryan Seacrest Helps Staffer Apologize to his Girlfriend, Talks About Friendship, Diet and Fitness Regime
Ryan Seacrest loves helping people. Besides being the founder of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps children in hospitals, Ryan is a great colleague and a wonderful friend! As it turns out, Seacrest is also willing to apologize for others during a live show!
As you already know, Ryan Seacrest hosts a weekday morning drive time radio show that airs on Los Angeles Top 40 station KIIS-FM. This is just one of Seacrest’s many jobs, including being a TV host and producing shows.
During a recent KIIS-FM episode, Ryan introduced Jon, one of his staffers. Jon has been working on the morning show for six months now, and according to Sisanie, he looks like Freddie Prince Junior, “The younger version, in his early days!”
Jon is 25, and his first anniversary with his girlfriend is coming up. Unfortunately, Jon had a problem he shared with everyone. He was very nervous as he talked about his girlfriend, Sydney.
As he explained to Ryan, she wanted to see Spiderman with him for her birthday, but the show was too late that day and they didn’t see it. The night after that, Jon’s roommates suggested they see Spiderman together and have a boys night out. Jon thought it was a great idea that day, “Let’s go and see Spiderman!” So Jon texted his girlfriend about it and she said: “You’re going to do what?” Everyone in the studio laughed.
After he heard Sydney’s reaction, Jon realized he was wrong and suggested they go and see another movie. But then he went and watched Superman with his friends anyway, thinking it’s not a big deal. “His plan was to charm his way out of it,” Seacrest concluded.
The worst part is that he went and saw Spiderman with his girlfriend and pretended he saw it for the first time. His tactic was to act surprised. “That’s bad!” Sisanie shouted. Everyone was shocked to hear that he was able to go through the entire movie and act like he hadn’t seen it before.
“What do you think I can do?” Ryan asked. “Well, I thought if the apology comes from Ryan Seacrest it would be more serious,” Jon said. This situation inspired KIIS FM crew to come up with the name for a new show called “Ryan’s remedies,” during which Seacrest would help other people solve their problems.
“Let’s think this through and articulate before we call your girlfriend,” Ryan said. Once Ryan explained the whole situation again, Jon realized how bad he messed up. “It’s pretty bad,” Sisanie said.
It was time to call his girlfriend and clear the air. “Hi Sydney, it’s Ryan Seacrest calling from KIIS FM, how are you?” Sydney was surprised to hear the familiar voice as she drove to meet a friend. “I’m calling you on Jon’s behalf because he told me something I think you should know,” Seacrest said and asked, “How long have you been together?”
“Almost a year,” Sydney responded. “You’re anniversary is coming up,” Ryan said. “Here’s the reason why I’m calling, it’s about Spiderman.” Ryan said and explained the whole situation to her.
“Jon hasn’t been sleeping at night,” he added, “He saw it and pretended to have seen it for the first time, and now he feels bad for acting out he saw it with you.” Sydney sounded shocked and a bit angry as she told Ryan her side of the story.
As it turned out, Jon involved their friends too! “Jon, what would you like to say now that we have her on the line?” Jon said it was the only thing he lied about and promised he wouldn’t lie again. Luckily for Jon, Sydney accepted the apology.
“So now we leverage this,” Seacrest said and added, “Because your anniversary is in a week.” Seacrest suggested Jon celebrates his girlfriend because she is such a forgiving person. “He’s the best,” Sydney lovingly said.
New Season of Live with Kelly and Ryan Celebrates Friendship
Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa aren’t just a perfect onscreen couple. Besides co-hosting one of the most popular daily TV shows, Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa are also great friends.
Ahead of the third season on Live together, Ryan and Kelly sat down to discuss their undeniable chemistry. “I get to work with one of my very best friends,” said Ripa in an interview for season 32 of the show. “We have that connection backstage right before the show starts where it’s like, ‘I’ve got a story for you.’“
It also seems like Seacrest found his “groove” on the hit morning talk show after two seasons. “I think it’s great to come on a show that’s already successful — unless you screw it up when you arrive,” Seacrest joked.
Kelly and Ryan want their audience to feel just as comfortable as they do during the show. “What’s great about this show is that it is very relaxed,” said Seacrest. “It allows us to present a show that is accessible to the audience. We want them to feel like, even if they’ve never met us, they know us.”
Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa promised more even more surprises and laughs on the upcoming season. The new season premiered September 3, and it was dubbed the “Year of the Fan.”
That means every morning, one member of the audience will be selected to participate in a brand new segment of the show called the “I in Live.” This lucky fan will meet and be interviewed by Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa! “There’s a lot of preparation, but it’s not so rigid,” Ryan said. “If something happens in the show, we have the freedom to go with it.” “It takes a lot of preparation to look like you haven’t prepared at all,” Kelly added.
Ryan Seacrest and the Incident at the Kris Jenner’s House
Speaking of friendships, there is an anecdote that Ryan Seacrest has recently shared with his fans. The story involves him, Kris Jenner, and the toilet at her home.
Ryan is a longtime friend of the Kardashian-Jenner family. As one of the main producers, Seacrest is one of the important people behind the show. After all, it was Ryan Seacrest’s idea to start their long-running E! reality series, which makes him an important figure in the Kardashian-Jenner family.
But even though Ryan Seacrest has achieved so much and accomplished many things in his career, flushing Kris Jenner’s toilet seems to be out of his reach. During an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan Seacrest revealed that during a trip to Kris Jenner’s home, he was confused about how to use one of the home’s many toilets.
“So she’s got a bathroom in the entryway,” Seacrest tried to describe Jenner’s home, to his co-host and friend Kelly Ripa, and jokingly added that the room was, “made out of complete jade!”
“So I’m in there, and the toilet, it’s like one of those electronic toilets, but it’s black, so you can’t see any of the buttons,” Ryan recalled, “And the room is dimly lit, and I can’t find the light switch, and there’s one candle lit.”
“So I go to the bathroom,” Seacrest continued his hilarious story, “And I use the toilet paper, and put it in the thing, and try to find the flush, and I can’t find the flush. So now what do I do? I can’t find the flush and someone is going to come in and use the toilet.”
As the American Idol host explained, he tried to find the button to flush the toilet, in fear that another Kardashian-Jenner family member would come in after him and find an unpleasant surprise!
“The technology was messed up, and it wouldn’t flush,” Seacrest said, with Ripa interjecting, “Oh, what a nightmare!” “So I flush it, and the water just builds,” Seacrest said. “I am watching the water level rise.”
Ryan admitted that in his moment of panic, he almost attempted what Kris Jenner’s son-in-law Kanye West might have called a “Poopy-di scoop.” “I’m thinking to myself ‘What do I do?’ Do I stick my hand in there? Do I say, ‘Hey Khloe, don’t tell Kim and Kourtney, but can you help me out over here?’ Or do I just tell Kris, I think your toilet has got a problem?”
Kelly jumped in to share her thoughts on Seacrest’s story and explained to him, “When in doubt, go to the mom. We’ve seen it.” “I know, but I was too embarrassed,” Seacrest replied, and admitted that he was left without options when Ripa asked what he did next.
“I just left it there,” he said and then jokingly turned to camera, “Keep this between us!”
Ryan Seacrest Reveals What Inspires Him
Ryan Seacrest is the man with many jobs. In a recent interview, Seacrest shared what inspires him and how he manages to do it all. The On Air With Ryan Seacrest host also talked about his life passions.
“The biggest question is ‘How do I do what I do?’” Ryan shared what fans always want to know. “I am also asked, ‘What is my schedule? How do I get everything in? Do I sleep?’ The answers are that I don’t look at my schedule more than a day ahead. I love to be back-to-back with projects and not have downtime, and I don’t get enough sleep, but I don’t seem tired, do I?”
According to Ryan, the trick is to make the most of the moments when he does get the chance to wind down. These situations include working out and traveling even more than he does now!
“I do like to walk around the streets of Manhattan to relax. I enjoy walking home. I get massages, I do yoga, but what I love to do is travel,” Ryan described “me” time. “You would think that being on a plane so much of the time, I wouldn’t want to travel. But I look forward to it. I enjoy traveling without a schedule and relaxing without my phone. Not having to make a plan or a schedule is often perfect.”
Traveling is his passion because it gives him the chance to explore the local cuisine! “The perfect dinner for me is a great Italian-style thin crust with a bottle of Brunello. I like it simple,” Seacrest was honest. “ I like things that are indigenous to a certain area, that’s a specialty or signature of that country, is my favorite way to eat.”
As someone who works with big stars, Ryan Seacrest is starstruck by great chefs and motivational speakers such as Brene Brown. “She is a brilliant person,” Ryan explained and added, “I get starstruck not by movie stars and TV stars, but by chefs and others, I admire. I love to meet really talented people, but I get the most starstruck meeting people who are amazing in the kitchen and in great restaurants.”
Of course, there are many things Seacrest has learned over the years, and he is eager to share a life lesson or two with his fans. “My goal every day is to make everyone happy that I work for. I try to practice gratitude in the morning before I go to work,” Ryan said. “I have days when I’m grumpy and tired, like everyone else, but I think gratitude is something I’ve learned to implement into my life during the last couple of years.”
Ryan Seacrest’s Diet Routine
After he explained how he manages his hectic schedule, Ryan also spoke about his fitness and diet routine. Seacrest has always been open about his love for food, so naturally, everyone has been curious about what’s going on in his fridge.
Besides being a radio and TV host, Seacrest also owns a close-fitting suit line called Distinction. Ever since he started his career in 1995, people wanted to know what’s his secret because he doesn’t seem to age.
The American Idol host revealed that he drinks a concoction of watercress, ginger, turmeric, lime, and pineapple in the morning. “That sounds so good,” Ryan said, “I usually have these in the morning. But not before the show, because it burns.”
As a workaholic, Ryan Seacrest has a fridge backstage that’s packed with his essentials, including bottled water, raw vegetables, vegetable wraps (he eats these for lunch), and almonds (Ryan admits that he eats too many almonds a day).
However, if you think that vegetables are the only food Ryan Seacrest eats, you are wrong. Ryan also indulges in dairy and fine cheeses! “If it’s stinky,” he said, “if it smells like dirty feet and makes you sweat when you eat it, I like it.”
But what happens when Seacrest gets the late-night munchies? If you ask the famous American Idol host, this time is closer to breakfast, given his crazy weekly schedule. That means that at 2 AM, Ryan is more likely to get some almond butter in a jar than pizza.
He combines almond butter with a natural fruit spread, which he combines on two spoons and then double fists. “It’s kind of like peanut butter and jelly without the bread,” says Seacrest. It’s just like peanut butter and jelly only without both of them!
As for his exercise routine, Ryan Seacrest works out 4 to 5 days a week at Dogpound, which is an exclusive and one of the most Instagrammable NYC gyms. At Dogpound, the host lifts and punches to hip hop, and then runs to opera music.
“I want to look stronger and larger than a thirteen-year-old kid,” Seacrest said when asked why he visits the gym so religiously. As it turns out, Ryan is not too worried about his weight. Instead, he is mostly looking to bulk. “They say television added pounds to you. Sure. I wish it added height.”
Ryan also said that his fitness goals include maintaining a healthy body, one that can manage so much work during the day. But also, he needs his health so he can live to see 100, “Not 105,” he clarifies. “Those last five years… who wants those?”
When it comes to his mental health, Ryan Seacrest explained that he stumbled upon a brand new nightly strategy. “I’ve discovered this thing that I didn’t do for the first 40 years of my life. It’s called ‘sleep.’ I’ve just discovered it, and I’m getting better at it.” Sounds like a good plan!
Speaking of mental health, self-care is very important. That’s why even Ryan Seacrest protects his time and energy, “I’ve learned, though, that I only have the capacity to engage in so much for certain amount of times, he said, and added, “I will only take a phone call interview or other requests after I get through the first half of the day. The afternoon is when I can think about things that are more long term.”
