Ryan Seacrest snaps at Live producer off-stage as star tries to kick off show with Kelly Ripa’s fill-in host

Ryan Seacrest snaps at Live producer off-stage as star tries to kick off show with Kelly Ripa’s fill-in host

RYAN Seacrest has snapped at a Live producer who was standing nearby off-camera at the start of the show while introducing Kelly Ripa’s fill-in host, Jenny Mollen.

While Jenny, 43, was telling her audience how she met her husband, the producer interjected to be sure Ryan, 48, knew American Pie actor Jason Biggs, 44, is married to the temporary co-host.

Jenny told Ryan she was set up on a blind date with Jason when they first met.

Ryan commented blind dates “freak him out” but countered: “I guess it’s different because he is well known.”

Off-camera, a producer’s voice interjected: “Jason Biggs,” clarifying the pronoun from Ryan’s previous sentence.

Ryan scoffed and told the producer: “Yes, I know Jason Biggs!”

He continued addressing the off-camera staff: “If you just give us a second to settle in, we’ll get there!”

Ryan then addressed the audience and said: “Jason Biggs, of course, we speak of. Very famous.”

As the audience clapped, Jenny tangentially commented she has never co-hosted before.

Ryan revealed Live doesn’t have a script, so they “say whatever they want.”

Jumping back to the topic, Ryan threw shade at the producer one more time as he said: “So, you met him on Friday the 13th – when you met Jason Biggs.”

When Ryan said the famous actor’s name, he emphasized the words and turned his head to look off-camera at the producer.


Jenny filled in for Kelly Friday as she’s been out sick.

Kelly was absent last Thursday and Friday, before returning to the show early this past week, despite still being sick.

Although her voice was barely audible while hosting Tuesday’s show and the host ended up taking a few more days off to recover.

She has been out from Live with Kelly and Ryan since Wednesday, with various guest co-hosts filling in for her.

On the first day of Kelly’s absence, Carson Kressley took on the gig, while on Thursday the show’s resident DJ, Deja Vu, took over the co-host’s chair.

Despite Kelly being away from the spotlight and recovering, she’s still been sure to send support from home.

Kelly re-shared a sweet photo from Thursday’s episode featuring Ryan and Deja Vu alongside lifestyle expert Monica Mangin.

The show had Monica on for a shopping segment called Feel Better Bargains and she gave Kelly a shout-out both on air and online.


During the broadcast, the lifestyle expert showed off a bento box item on sale.

While picking one up to share more details about it, Monica gushed: “Of course, we put Goldfish in here in honor of Kelly.

“So, hey, Kelly! We have Goldfish for you!”

While the star wasn’t there to enjoy them herself, Ryan did the honors and nibbled on the snack food for her.

Monica shared a snap on her Instagram Story from her appearance on the program and said she had a “great morning” with Ryan and Deja Vu.

She tagged Kelly and told her to “feel better soon!”

Kelly saw the sweet post and shared it on her own page for her millions of followers to see.

Earlier this week, Kelly gave an update on how she’s been holding up.

The host posted a selfie cradling her head in her hand while relaxing on a sofa.

“Day six of nothing wrong with me,” Kelly captioned the photo.
