Priceless Idol Moment of the Week

Gossip about American Idol host Ryan Seacrest's sexuality has been swirling around for almost as long as the show has been on the air. He's tried some desperate attempts at distancinng himself from the rumors like publicly mauling a pair of bleach blond female strippers and his much publicized "date" with Terri Hatcher last year where the two were caught on camera in a momentary kiss. But then Terri blew ol' Ryan's cover by essentially outing him on the David Letterman Show last year. Then there was this little exchange between Seacrest and Simon Cowell on tonight's American Idol:

Seacrest: (Referring to Melinda Doolittle's complaints of having to wear such high heels on the show) Simon, any advice on the high heels?

Simon: You should know Ryan.

Seacrest: Stay out of my closet!

Simon: COME OUT!

Yeah, Ryan, come out already! You're the host of a TV talent competition and a radio host, does anyone really care if you're gay? It's not like you're a sex symbol or anything. Gimme a break. "Seacrest Out" indeed!

I've never warmed up to the concept of outing. It feels like a spectator sport. Very similar to the Romans watching people get mauled by lions. But for what it's worth. He's on our team.

Even though I thought Simon was kind of inappropriate, and the moment got a little uncomfortable, I do have to admit that Simon was pretty brilliant with his quick thinking. Hilarious

Love your line "'Seacrest Out' indeed!" :)

I think Simon was just joking around and trying to get under his skin as they always do.

I listened to RS when he was a DJ years and years ago before he hit it big. Not that it means too much, but he's been in several LTRs with women.

I think the jury is still out on this one. WEHO is SO full of gay guys that would die for the 15 minutes of fame to say they banged Seacrest. Same for Tom Cruise. If anyone has had sex with these two, I think we'd have heard about it by now.

I'd just as soon have both of them playing for their team.
