Tag Archives: Ryan Seacrest
Sure, $275,000 per week is a lot of money, however Ryan makes more annually then most celebrities net worth. Ryan makes $150 Million a year. That’s right. He Not worth $150 Million, he makes $150 Million a year. Arguably the hardest working man in Showbiz, Ryan decided to take his girlfriend Julianne Hough to St Bart’s. The two have been dating now for 18 months and things look to be getting serious.
The couple embarked on the vacation after Ryan hosted ABC’s New Year Rockin’ Eve with Jenny McCarthy. Julianne just finished up her new movie “Safe Haven” so a little R&R was in order.

There’s been a lot of buzzing, but nothing confirmed…until now. Cowell confirmed live on Ryan Seacrest’s show, “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” that he was indeed dating Carmen Electra. However, he was quick to add,
“She’s not my girlfriend, We’re people who date. She’s adorable, isn’t she?” .
The fling, (because that’s what it is), started back when Carmen was a judge on “Britain’s Got Talent”. During an interview with Access Hollywood Live, Electra gave her side of the relationship,
“The thing is, we worked together on ‘Britain’s Got Talent.’ I was a guest judge and I had so much fun. I really liked him. I think he’s really cool.”
Now, obviously, he’s in [Los Angeles] with X Factor and we started to hang out and we became friends … I think he’s a great guy.’
The rumors between the two go as far back as September when they were spotted holding hands at the LA restaurant Cecconi’s.
Carmen Electra was married to Dennis Rodman and Dave Navarro so ultra good looking as never been her thing. Although Cowell looks every bit his age at 56, Electra is stunning at age 40. However, I bet Cowell looks really good naked……standing next to his bank statement. Simon Cowell is worth $320 Million!!
We all knew she was joining the cast, the questions that were on everyone’s mind was, “How Much” and for “How Long”.
Kevin Reilly of foxed announced yesterday that the deal was done. Mariah then said a few words,
“I am so excited to be joining ‘American Idol, This kind of all just happened really quickly.”
Then Simon Fuller – not to be mixed up with Simon Cowell also put his stamp of approval on things,
“We are proud to have one of the world’s greatest-ever female singers join our show, Mariah defines the word ‘Idol’ and will inspire every singer that has the honor of performing in front of her.”
She is just one replacement. The jury is still out as to her others will be although producer Nigel Lythgoe was hopeful that Jennifer Lopez would return (which contradicts reports that she was fired).
Nigel told the press on Monday,
Since she told “Idol” host Ryan Seacrest she was 99 percent sure she was leaving, that means there’s a 1 percent chance she won’t, Lythgoe said Monday.
But Nigel was also on record for telling critics that the show should be refreshed each season with new judges, which I personally totally disagree with.
For Carey this is an extremely calculated business move. She is making $18 million for a one season option making her the highest paid judge on any music competition show. Aguilera is at $10 million for “The Voice”, Britney Spears is at $16 million for “The X Factor”. Howard Stern is rumored to have gotten $20 Million for AGT but it’s not classified as a “music” competition show.
Carey is also working on her newest album and this will be a ridiculous amount of free promotion. Carey said,
“I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month, I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”
Her husband Nick Cannon opened his mouth to give a statement but all I heard was “Cha-ching” and other cash register related sounds.Read more...
The whole tearful admission to Seacrest was reportedly all a farce.
J. Lo WANTED MORE DOUGH!
Jennifer Lopez who was getting what was originally thought to be $12 million but was later verified that she was earning $15 million and she wanted a raise.
TVST=> Was she jelly over Britney’s pay check from Simon Cowell?
She wanted a $2 million dollar raise and Fox flat out said no. They didn’t even counter.
Then they decided just not to renew Steven Tylers option.
The whole, “After some long hard thoughts, I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go my mistress “American Idol before” she boils the rabbit” was bull. The decision was made for him. It appears that the mistress dropped him first. The decision to go on tour with Aerosmith is a lot easier when you compare it to being unemployed.
Yo Dawg – Randy better get his resume updated and start friending people on Linked-In because he is right there on the cutting edge. Rumor has it that he’s next. They are looking at revamping Idol completely and leaving just Ryan Seacrest. For now, Randy is playing the role as supportive co-judge and 100% Pro-Idol and it’s choices. In the wake of the Lopez-Tyler booting he says,
“Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I’ve worked with. I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life.”
I would actually hate to see the Rand-man go. Hopefully he can hang on long enough to fall in sync with the new judges. Possible talks now are: Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion.Read more...
You can call Seacrest a lot of things but stupid is not one. There were rumors that this would be his last Season of Idol, even rumors that he would be starting his own “American Idol” type show. He put them all to bed because he has renewed his contract for a minimum of two more seasons with American Idol.
No one is more relieved than Mike Darnell, one of Fox’s presidents. He said in a statement to the press,
“His ability to engage the viewers, keep the contestants at ease during intense moments and adapt to any situation, especially during the live shows, solidifies him as the absolute best in the business.”
HOW MUCH IS RYAN SEACREST’S NEW CONTRACT?
How about $15 million. Not bad for a two night a week gig, but trust me Ryan is working much more then just two nights pwer week and he is making much more than $15 million a sum that Idol can afford to pay because it’s still the most watched show in the Us; 11 season strong.
Seacrest also released a statement,
“For the last 11 seasons, I’ve had the privilege to be a part of one of television’s most iconic shows. It’s been a wild ride, and I’m excited for my journey with American Idol to continue. The legions of fans, amazingly talented contestants, judges, and producers, along with the hard working Idol crew, impress me every time we go on air and make hosting the show a dream job. I especially appreciate the support and confidence of Peter Rice, Mike Darnell and the entire Fox team — as well as the support of everyone at FremantleMedia North America — and I look forward to continuing our partnership.”
Very eloquently worded, very appropriate and seemingly humble. The boy is Good!! He will ride Idol until the wheels fall off, with his Radio Shows, American Top 40, and On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Executive producing credits for Dick Clarks New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Keeping up with the Kardsahsian’s, Chloe and Lamar, reality shows including Mommas Boys and Bromance, Shahs of Sunset and Laure Ann Gibson’s Born to Dance, he just might be the busiest man in showbiz. Literally. His total salary is about $45 – $65 million per year.
