RYAN CRESTFALLEN OVER KELLY’S DOUBLE CROSS!
RATTLED Ryan Seacrest is looking over his shoulder after Live co-host Kelly Ripa cozied up to TV rival Jerry O’Connell to promote her memoir, Live Wire, sources spill. The Talk’s Jerry, 48, helmed a Q&A session in Chicago for fans to chat with Kelly, 52, about her book. An insider dishes, “Ryan was stunned when he heard about the event and is nervous about his status with her! He couldn’t believe she didn’t ask him to host!” Viewers have gabbed about on-air tension between
Kelly and Ryan, and as The National ENQUIRER reported, some even griped on social media about Ripa being rude to her studio sidekick by constantly interrupting him! Meanwhile, tipsters say
Kelly and Jerry have grown close since he auditioned to replace Live alum Michael Strahan in 2016 — a gig that ultimately went to Ryan, 47.
Jerry has gushed about
Kelly helping him launch his own hosting career, and insiders say they wouldn’t be surprised if he one day teamed up with the daytime dynamo.
The insider squeals it’s “unlikely” Kelly would lure Jerry away from The Talk, but adds, “Ryan has seen her burn through two co-hosts before him— in Michael and Regis Philbin. Her relationship with Jerry definitely concerns him!”
